Overview and Recommendations for Good Practices [PDF 3.6MB]
This guide publication, one of the key products of the AAC, is not a starter kit or step-by-step technical manual. Rather, it’s purpose is to share with the museum community what AAC set out to accomplish, how AAC approached LOD, the tools we used, the trials we encountered, the lessons we learned, and our recommendations for good practices for museums interested in joining the LOD community.
