Linking Data across Museum Archives and Special Collections

This session will present on the new workflows that we are implementing at the Oriental Institute museum archives to link photographic material that exists in the digital archives with the bibliographic records in the library database. Linking this data will bring these images online in a way that will open up the collections in which they are contained to new audiences, releasing them from the digital silos in which they are currently housed. This is important because it is painstaking work that will make a big impact on the discoverability of the extensive collection of archaeological photography contained within the OI museum archives. By presenting on our progress at the 2022 LD4 Conference on Linked Data, “Linking Global Knowledge,” we hope to share our experiences in developing workflows for this project, but also benefit from the knowledge of other participating institutions who have completed, or are in the process of implementing similar projects. These workflows have been co-written and refined by Ling Chan (Summer 2022, Uchicago Graduate Global Impact Intern).
