Working with, Creating your Institution’s OPD

Building on the ideas discussed in the plenary talk on “What Does The Data Tell Us About UK University Web Sites?” this workshop will enable some hands on experience in creating the all important OPD, Organisational Profile Document, for your institution.

An OPD is a simple data file which authoritatively describes your organisation, contact details, web pages, official social media links and importantly open access documents.

In the work shop we will explore the:

  • Basics of data driven services
  • Understanding basic principles of linked open data
  • Enabling autodiscovery

The workshop will be using a series of web tools so all you need to have is a networked device.

Facilitators: Christopher Gutteridge and Andrew Milsted, University of Southampton
