RLUK, working with The European Library, will soon be releasing over 17 million bibliographic records as Linked Open Data (LOD).
On the back of this we are staging a Hack Day on 14 May to which we want to invite developers from the library, academic and general coding community to realise the full impact of this very large open dataset. We want to encourage people to engage with the data, reuse it and make it usable for others in the pursuit of research and learning that will benefit all.
A one-day event, the programme is aimed at encouraging direct development of the dataset, and will be a hands-on, BYOD set of sessions for those with a practical interest in or experience of developing services and prototypes using LOD.
There will be several hack themes for the day:
• Linking Up datasets
• Eastern Europe
• Delivering a valuable hack for RLUK members
If you have staff with the appropriate coding or developer skills or roles, please encourage them to look at the programme and register at: https://rlukhack2014.eventbrite.co.uk
