Learning Resources

LINCS has created and collected a variety of resources of different levels and formats to help users learn about Linked Open Data (LOD).

Zotero Library​

The LINCS Zotero Library contains citations and links to articles, books, conference presentations, videos, tutorials, and websites on LOD topics, ranging from introductory to advanced. The resources have been divided by topic. Tags have been used to denote the following:

  • Favourite: Resources that are LINCS’s favourite
  • Introductory Material: Resources that are ideal for beginners
  • Training Module: Resources that are interactive
  • LINCS Output: Resources that have been created by LINCS and/or the project’s collaborators

Contact LINCS to share resources you would like to add to the Zotero library or to request library editing privileges.

Linked Open Data Basics​

The Linked Open Data Basics pages explain the foundational concepts of LOD. These pages are ideal for beginners or those wanting to brush up on their understanding of LOD.


The Glossary contains explanations of terms are used in LINCS’s documentation and other LOD resources. Clicking on a term brings up a longer definition with examples and links to further resources.
