In this talk, Corey Harper will provide a brief introduction to the principles and promise of linked data in libraries, archives & museums, including information about emerging models and vocabularies for managing LAM metadata as Linked Data. He will introduce a variety of tools and frameworks for analyzing, managing, refining, and reconciling existing metadata. The talk will then provide a number of examples ranging from DPLA and Europeana to smaller boutique projects and will conclude with a discussion of Corey's currently research, recently presented at code4lib12 in Chicago.

Objects and their associated narratives are a means of self-expression and assist in the maintenance of a cohesive identity. That personal objects can be instrumental in supporting a cohesive yet dynamic expression of self over time was underscored during the course of earlier funded research for which Howarth reported findings at an IOrg presentation, March 27, 2012. “Enhancing Pathways to Memory” examined how representative surrogates or “tokens” (photographs, music, textiles, physical objects, etc.) triggered and/or enhanced memory recall in individuals with mild Alzheimer’s Disease (AD).

This lecture addresses the need for new navigation strategies in the vast amount of digital available information. It starts with a report about the “The Knowledge Space Lab”, founded by the Royal Netherlands Academy of Arts and Sciences, and dealing with the emergence of category structures in knowledge spaces as different as libraries and the world-wide web. At the core of this project stands a comparison of the evolution of the Wikipedia topical category structure and the Universal Decimal Classification of Paul Outlet, But, the more fundamental question at stack is how to create new – visually enhanced and tangible - interfaces for collections.

- This presentation will report on a methodological journey seeking to frame an exploratory study of narratives from individuals with Alzheimer Disease (AD). The analysis will situate cognitive science concepts of representation and memory within the framework of information sense-making and recall strategies.

Lynne Howarth presents a report on a pilot study exploring "sorting" strategies for recalling everyday life experiences, and the effectiveness of multi-modal tokens as context for association and reconstruction of personal memory
