The Digital Preservation Coalition is delighted to announce that registration is now open for 'Links That Last: Linked Data, Persistent Identifiers and Digital Preservation', a DPC briefing day at Lucy Cavendish College Cambridge on 19th July 2012.
This briefing day will introduce the topics of persistent identifiers and linked data, discussing the practical implications of both approaches to digital preservation. It will consider the viability of services that offer persistent identifiers and what these offer in the context of preservation; it will review recent developments in linked data, considering how such data sets might be preserved; and by introducing these two parallel topics it will go on to consider whether both approaches can feasibly be linked to create a new class of robust linked data. Based on commentary and case studies from leaders in the field, participants will be encouraged to consider practical implications for their own work and new directions for research and development in the field.
DPC Members have priority access to registration and can attend for free. Non-members are invited to register at a cost of 250GBP per place. Registration is online at: http://www.dpconline.org/events/details/47-linksthatlast?xref=49
