Gemma Webster - Connecting Community Heritage through Linked Data

The CURIOS project explores how digital archives for rural community heritage groups can be made more sustainable so that volunteer members can maintain a lasting digital presence. It developed software tools to help remote rural communities to collaboratively maintain and present information about their cultural heritage. The objective was to investigate the use of semantic web/ linked data technology to build a general, flexible and “future proof” software platform that could help such projects to develop digital archives and to be sustainable over time. As an interdisciplinary project we aimed to synthesise a narrative that draws from both social science and computer science perspectives by critically reflecting upon the novel approach taken and the results that were produced.
