Learn About PRELIDA: A Project to Preserve Linked Data

From the Europeana Professional Blog:

The project launched in January this year and is now looking forward to its first major working group meeting in June. 


The project aims to build bridges across the digital preservation and linked data communities, with the view of

  • making the linked data community aware of existing outcomes of the digital preservation community; and
  • working out the challenges of preserving linked data, posing new research questions for the preservation community, and developing a roadmap for addressing them.
The main partners for the project are CNR-ISTI (Italian National Research Council of the Institute of Science and Information Technology), APA (the Alliance for Permanent Access), the University of Huddersfield in the UK and the University of Innsbruck in Austria. As a leader in linked data thinking, Europeana is involved with PRELIDA in a sub-contracting capacity.
