Why is interoperability so difficult for film archives to achieve? Efforts along these lines have often resulted in complete failure or imperfect results. What if we just haven’t had the right solution until now? Isn’t it worth taking a look if it means your institution can finally and more completely fulfill its goal to provide access to its collections, both film and film-related materials? Linked Open Data may be the way forward and this workshop will present ideas, arguments, and concrete developments that should help you understand its potential as well as the resources available to help you start using it.
