1. Chris Dijkshoorn and Lizzy Jongma (VU), “The Rijksmuseum Collection as Linked Data”

Many museums are currently providing online access to their collections. The state of the art research in the last decade shows that it is beneficial for institutions to provide their datasets as Linked Data in order to achieve easy cross-referencing, interlinking and integration. During this presentation, we present the Rijksmuseum linked dataset, along with collection and vocabulary statistics, as well as lessons learned from the process of converting the collection to Linked Data.

2. Alex Olieman (UvA), “Linked Data from Text for Parliamentary (Re)search”

Parliamentary papers are a valuable source for inquiries into the histories of nations, as well as current-day politics. A significant part of the proceedings of parliamentary debates, across nations,  has already been digitized, and several governments provide open access to proceedings that span the full existence of their modern state. This presentation will outline the current state of the research infrastructure which provides access to parliamentary proceedings across nations through a common interface, after which Alex will go into more depth about his work on enriching debate transcripts with Linked Data.
