The Necessity of Linked Data alias Thinking Big in Computational History
- In this paper we will demonstrate the urgent necessity of a linked data policy that includes a normative framework and implementation technique for research projects in computational history and, more generally, in computational humanities. Rather than discussing the subject on an abstract level, we will instead apply examples from own experiences linking data located in different repositories. We will primarily focus on the repository of the long-term research project «Repertorium academicum germanicum» (RAG)1.
To begin, we will explain our motivation to build connections between different datasets, followed by a discussion of our methodology in navigating other repositories. In the conclusion, we will offer suggestions concerning future research and policy in computational history.
