The American Art Collaborative (AAC) Linked Open Data (LOD) Initiative recently published “Overview and Recommendations for Good Practices.” The document (80 pages; PDF) was written by Eleanor Fink, Manager and Founder of the AAC.
From the Introduction:
The AAC is a consortium of fourteen art institutions (thirteen museums and one archive) in the United States established in 2014 to investigate and begin building a critical mass of LOD on American art.
This guide, one of the key products of the AAC, is not a starter kit or step-by-step technical manual. Rather, our purpose here is to share with the museum community what AAC set out to accomplish, how AAC approached LOD, the tools we used, the trials we encountered, the lessons we learned, and our recommendations for good practices for museums interested in joining the LOD community.
