Hi Regine and all,

In principle, I think, we can all imagine Linked Data that is non-open - 
and in house museum inventory databases might be so very likely. But the 
whole point about publishing identifier URIs for museum objects is that 
they are available for everybody to cite. So indeed in our case the data 
should be Linked Open Data.

Also - notwithstanding my high regard of TBL - just because a concept 
was introduced by him does not make it more letigimate, just as building 
reconstructions do not become more realistic if we can attribute them to 
Andrea Palladio.

Best, Max

Dr. Maximilian Schich
