The intention of the Linked Pasts Community & Sustainability Working Group (WG) is to bootstrap Linked Pasts into becoming a viable, long-term and self-sustaining project. Ultimately the aim is to stimulate the start of a virtuous cycle – for Linked Pasts to foster a scholarly community, and in turn provide it with tools enabling this community to contribute to and develop Linked Pasts.
In order to achieve these aims, the WG proposes to:
* Scope, and develop a Linked Pasts online publication, complete with plans for implementing a commissioning, review and technical platform
* Develop a high-level exploration plan for a technical infrastructure for Linked Pasts and linked data stores.
