Linked open data (LOD) methods are increasingly being applied to aggregate and integrate data and impact upon data and technical infrastructures enabling resource discovery and interoperability. In October to November 2015, the authors visited nine teams leading the way with LOD practices, in programmes, institutes, universities, and libraries in the USA, Europe, and the UK. This paper presents the nature of LOD methods, the context for practice change, insights from site visits as exemplars of practice change, and an accompanying analysis in support of Australian GLAMs (Galleries, Libraries, Archives and Museums) practice change.
