Current Projects:

Linked Jazz is an ongoing project investigating the potential of Linked Open Data (LOD) technology to enhance the discovery and visibility of digital cultural heritage materials.

More specifically, the project focuses on digital archives of jazz history to expose relationships between musicians and reveal their community’s network. New modes of connecting cultural data and making them searchable as a whole in a seamless discovery environment would open unprecedented opportunities to create new kinds of meaning and elicit new streams of interpretation. The goal of this project is to help uncover meaningful connections between documents and data related to the personal and professional lives of musicians who often practice in rich and diverse social networks.

The first phase of the Linked Jazz Project was  funded through an OCLC/ALISE Library and Information Science Research grant.
