Date / time
Date(s) - 7 September
2:00 pm - 4:30 pm

School of Advanced Study, Senate House


This event will introduce the Tobias project, which will publish the Royal Historical Society’s detailed vocabulary of British and Irish history as linked data, making it freely available for the first time.

We will discuss the concept of linked data, the RHS vocabulary itself, the Bibliography of British and Irish History (which uses the vocabulary), and the project’s experiments in using the vocabulary to automatically classify historical material, including a case study of the John Johnson Collection.

This event is particularly aimed at people with a background in libraries, archives and museums: academics and others might prefer to attend the related event on 14 September 2016.
