Marta González, technical coordinator of the project, will be the presenter (Expert on Semantic Technologies at ICT - European Software Institute Division of Tecnalia)

Librarians, curators and other staff from libraries and museums, IT developers and SMEs, research projects on Semantic Web or Linked Data, European projects, public institutions.


ALIADA is an open source tool that allows libraries and museums to easily convert, link and publish their data as Linked Data. If you can export your metadata as MARCXML or LIDOXML, you can choose ALIADA as your ‘ally’ in the challenge of liberating cultural institutions from their current data silos and integrating library and museum data onto the Semantic Web. ALIADA is a web-application tool that can be integrated to the current library or museum management system supporting the entire cycle of publishing library and museum’s metadata in the Linked Data Cloud. The main elements of the application are the input files validator, the RDFizer, the linking feature and the CKAN publisher. The usability is a key aspect in ALIADA because it’s non-expert user oriented. ALIADA is open source and multilingual.
