The Institute of Jazz Studies and the Rutgers Newark Department of Arts Culture and Media are presenting a Research Roundtable entitled The Shape of Jazz to Come: The Linked Jazz research project, by Professor Cristina Patuelli from Pratt Institute School of Library Information Science. She is investigating ways to use linked open data to construct archival reference tools.  

 

The Shape of [Linked] Jazz to Come
 Linked Jazz   is an innovative and evolving project that applies a new generation of web development technologies to digital collections of jazz history to reveal the network of relationships between jazz artists, ultimately enhancing visibility and access of cultural heritage content. Learn about new facets of the project that are pushing the boundaries of traditional access to archival materials and participate in a wide ranging discussion on current and future applications that support new forms of scholarship and engage new audiences in the development of our digital archives.
