Linked Open Data: A Global Approach to Provenance Research


This year, our student research session was held the afternoon of Monday, March 14, 2016. Developed in partnership with the Association of Academic Museums & Galleries (AAMG), the 2016 student research session showcased selected museum-based student projects and research, and offered a way for students to connect with experienced museum professionals and other students to gain new insight, share ideas, and network. 


What are the Parameters of the Presentation?

  • A 10 minute student presentation about a project developed in the last year for a museum or in a museum studies class
  • Presentations are timed and followed by a 5 minute Q&A period.   
  • Presenters must organize their presentations in much the same way as a paper: title, introduction, body of work, conclusion. 
  • Team projects may be proposed but only one person may present on behalf of the project. 
  • Questions? Contact Christina Newton or Patricia Hobbs.
