LINCS will reuse existing ontologies and vocabularies where possible, building on existing linked data work and seeking out domain-specific vocabularies to incorporate and link in. It will look to the best practices established by large projects—such as Europeana, the Digital Public Library of America, and Linked Data for Production—and from cultural heritage providers in Canada who are experimenting with Linked Open Data. LINCS will work to ensure that its ontologies can represent non-hegemonic epistemologies and push alternative knowledge representations into the Semantic Web; as such, LINCS ontologies will be selected, adopted, and developed with an attention to intersectionality, multiplicity, and difference.
