"The University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign has been awarded a new research grant by The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation to explore the benefits for users of linked open data (LOD) for digitized library special collections. Timothy Cole, mathematics librarian in the University Library and coordinator for library applications within the Center for Informatics Research in Science and Scholarship (CIRSS) at the Graduate School of Library and Information Science (GSLIS), will serve as principal investigator. Myung-Ja “MJ” Han, metadata librarian, and Caroline Szylowicz, Kolb-Proust librarian and curator of rare books and manuscripts, will serve as co-principal investigators. Jacob Jett, GSLIS doctoral student and CIRSS research assistant, will add expertise acquired through participation in prior CIRSS projects involving LOD."
