Modelling conservation data: an online workshop with Linked Conservation Data

Dates: January 25-26, 2021
Time: 3:00pm-5:30pm GMT, 10:00am-12:30pm EST, 7:00am-9:30am PST

The workshop takes place over two half days in January. On January 25, participants will be introduced to the principles of data modelling, the CIDOC-CRM and its relationship to Linked Data as well as typical examples of data modelling in Conservation. Following this will be a breakout session where groups of participants will examine and model conservation treatment documentation. On January 26, lectures on the data model being developed for a project pilot by the Linked Conservation Data Consortium on the ResearchSpace platform will be presented. This will be followed by breakout group discussions in dataset signposting or levels of data modelling for conservation documentation.

This workshop will bring together technical expertise around Linked Data and Conservation Documentation. Subject area expertise in Conservation documentation is required for participation and registered participants are encouraged to share examples of documentation in advance of the workshop to use for group modelling exercises. This workshop is free of charge and supported by a grant from the UK’s Arts and Humanities Research Council.
