    Sharing cultural heritage the linked open data way: why you should sign up

    Cultural heritage institutions are beginning to explore the added value of sharing data. We report on Dutch initiatives that have started opening up their data through far-reaching open licenses as well as initiatives that are using the Linked Open Data cloud to integrate and enriching heritage collection metadata.

    As galleries, libraries, archives and museums (GLAMS) are redefining their role as nodes in a wider network of content creators and providers, open innovation becomes key. GLAMS across the world are beginning to explore the added value of sharing data resources following the so-called Linked Open Data (LOD) principles. In this paper, we provide an overview of the practical uses and implications of using Linked Open Data through four projects currently running in the heritage domain. We have chosen these four projects among many because they show the usage of Linked Open Data from different perspectives. In this article, we first introduce the most important aspects of open data and linked data, for those not familiar with it yet (Sections 2 and 3). We shall then present four projects that are active in contributing or using linked data in Section 4, followed by a discussion of risks and advantages and concluding remarks in Section 5.
