You may be used to thinking of baseball when you hear the word "triples" but you might not after reading this article on the recent linked data research done by our colleagues in Digital Collections. Learn more about the concept of linked open data, the cutting edge research conducted by Cory Lampert and Silvia Southwick, and how they are working toward applying their research into more effective ways that users can search our collections.

The article also links to their work on the University Libraries’ Southern Nevada Jewish Heritage Project pilot project, “Navigator,” an online browsing tool that uses the metadata embedded in the files to create visualized links between collections.
