The joint Upper Midwest Digital Collections Conference (#UMDCC20) and the Minnesota Digital Library Annual Meeting (#mndiglib2020) was held virtually November 5-6, 2020. Our two conferences share the same goals of providing an opportunity to connect with colleagues, share projects, and learn from each other, with the added benefit of cross-pollination between two different groups with many affinities.

From August 2019 - August 2020, OCLC Research, working in partnership with a group of institutions that use OCLC’s CONTENTdm digital content management system, conducted a pilot project investigating how to create, manage, and use linked data for cultural heritage materials. The goals of the pilot were to evaluate the workflows for converting CONTENTdm metadata to create linked data entity descriptions, determine how to best manage the linked data entities created by those workflows, and explore how linked data can enhance researcher discovery and use of cultural heritage materials. This panel will discuss the findings of this pilot, provide an overview of some of the services developed, and share critical analysis from the pilot participants about their experience working with the OCLC team.
