    This set of slides presenting the case for and providing an introduction to the Linked Infrastructure for Networked Cultural Scholarship (LINCS) initiative, a Canadian venture to produce a robust infrastructure for the creation, dissemination, and use of Linked Open Data (LOD) for the humanities. From articulating the need for such an infrastructure, it moves into a brief summary of LINCS, outlining the opportunities and challenges associated with the heterogeneity of datasets mobilized by LOD, the need to produce LOD that reflects diverse perspectives and approaches, and the barriers to participation for those representing marginalized identities in such critical infrastructure projects.
