Integrating Cultural Heritage Information
Uldis Bojārs, Eduards Skvireckis
Uldis Bojārs is a semantic web expert at the National Library of Latvia. He has a PhD in Computer Science from the National University of Ireland, Galway (NUIG).
Eduards Skvireckis is a data management expert at the National Library of Latvia.

30 person workshop for GLAM (gallery, library, archive, museum) sector data managers, data experts and anyone else interested in this topic.
Outcome: Workshop participants will learn from each other how cultural heritage information is represented in various cultural heritage organizations and how this information can be interlinked.

Cultural heritage information is held by various organizations such as libraries, archives and museums. This workshop will look at the different types of information held by these organizations and at the data models used for organizing this information.
The goal of the workshop is to examine the opportunities for interlinking and integrating information from various cultural heritage organizations.
An example of making information inter-linkable is publishing it as Linked Open Data and linking it to other information sources.
The workshop will consist of an introductory presentation followed by interaction and collaboration between participants using discussion, brainstorming and teamwork.

Web 1, 2 or 3? The future of scholarly services
Patrick Hochstenbach

Patrick Hochstenbach worked for 25 years for academic libraries in Belgium, United States and Sweden and is currently doing a PhD in computer science in a Mellon funded project on scholarly publishing on the decentralised web. He is part of the IMEC team of Ghent University involved in W3C Solid and Linked Data development.

20 person workshop for Library strategists, service implementers, programmers
Outcome:Better technical understanding about Web technologies and development opportunities for libraries and memory institutions.

On December 2 2021 Aaron Tay wrote on his Twitter timeline:

“So it is 2031, what is the fate of access/delivery technologies eg seamlessaccess, getftr, CASA, access broker extensions, libkey etc for library resources? Here are some scenarios…” {ref:}

Then, he provides three scenarios 1) where platforms are triumphant , 2) a mix of all kinds of central and local services , 3) where open access or new decentralised forms are triumphant.

Aaron wished me all luck with my favorite scenario. In this workshop we will do some wishful thinking and open the floor learning about new technologies. What does it mean to further open up scholarly services? What is next for open access and research data management services? What does this mean technically mean to do more Web 1 or Web 2 or even Web 3?

What is at stake? Can we join our heads together and figure out what is meant with all these technologies?

In this workshop the floor is open. The workshop leader has some background in software development for Web 1, 2 and 3. But, we wish that the participants themselves bring their own insights and enlighten us all about the technologies involved.
