Linked Open Data is an approach to the creation of digital resources that emphasizes connections between diverse information on the basis of published and stable web addresses (URIs) that identify common concepts and individual items. The Linked Ancient World Data Institutes intellectual scope is the Ancient Mediterranean and Ancient Near East, two fields in which a large and increasing number of digital resources is available, with rich coverage of the archaeology, literature and history of these regions.

- One simple facet lets you limit your search based on what it is (books, videos, etc).
- The option to search by keyword, title, author, subject, or any combination, all at once.
- And simple wildcard searching (theology* will find both theology and theological).
Dobson says, “With Walter, the sky’s the limit!”
