Publications

Here, we collect publications to help you with your digital archiving practice – making it easy for you to find relevant reports, records, tender dossiers and tech blogs from meemoo itself.
At meemoo, we’re extremely proud of the well-stocked toolbox we use to support you and your work. In order to give organisations a helping hand with specific expertise tools, we organised a first coaching day on 22 October 2020 – with DPF Manager, CultURIze and the Digital Maturity Self-Assessment Tool taking centre stage.
Just like in previous years, this summer we organised a bootcamp on open cultural data. Only this time the participants had to pitch virtual tents as they learned how to make data available online in accordance with the FAIR principles.
Once you’ve decided which content or data you want to publish as linked data, the next step would be: how do you get started? Which ontology will you use, for example? And how will you consult this linked data? We shine a light on the methods that we implemented together with IDlab (imec).
In 2018 we started looking for matches between the List of Names and the News from the Great War collection. We found over a million potential links with identical names, but how do we know for sure we’ve made the right matches and found the right person? We explain our attestation process here.
We’ve said a lot about linked data already, but how do you get started? How do you go about finding interesting entities in your data that are worth publishing? We’ve summarised our process for you here.
On the website News of the Great War, a meemoo initiative, you can find more than 50.000 digitised newspapers from the First World War. Meemoo is continuously working on the accessibility of this digital archive. This blog describes how we enable researchers to carry out large scale and semi-automatic searches in this archive by applying Linked Data.
