EDM Cases: Polymath Virtual Library

  1. 1. EDM Cases:Polymath Virtual Library Xavier Agenjo Fundación Ignacio Larramendi xavier.agenjo@larramendi.es
  2. 2. Work done: Use URIs as names for things http://www.larramendi.es/aut/FILA20120003101
  3. 3. Work done: Use HTTP URIs so that these things can bereferred to and looked up ("dereferenced") by people and user agents
  4. 4. Work done: Provide useful information about the thing whenits URI is dereferenced, using standard formats such as RDF/ XML
  5. 5. Work done: Include links to other, related URIs in the exposed data to improve discovery of other related information on the Web

  7. 7. Some buts...• We need a stable EDM: its development is being long, with major changes and not yet stable.• For exchange and harvesting, we need an XSD schema stable and clearly versioned• Phases doesn’t facilitate its application. Once it is decided to apply LOD, it’s difficult [and expensive] to be constrained by EDM implementation phases. How to proceed? Should we [CP] send all existing data and relationships? Or, should we send only data and relationships according to phases?• Messages are not clear enough about who should apply EDM or when [Europeana Bussiness Plan 2012 – EDM Implementation Roadmap]• What will be the benefits [for content providers and their users] of moving to EDM? What developments are foreseen to show this benefits.
  8. 8. More important• Provide useful information – Not any data in EDM is good enough (or useful); granularity matters• Include links to other URIs so that they can discover more things – It is not about converting basic Dublin Core records to RDF, which matters are relationship with other resources and vocabularies (VIAF, DBpedia, WGS84, etc.). – What about local resources? – Europeana cant do everything• [Include EDM/LOD in your real cataloging process] – MARC 21 Records – Linking data through 024 – New relationships (through $4)
  9. 9. Authority records are thesupport of EDMCataloguing processeshave to change toincorporate LODFacilitate the reuse of data:tools for searching andlinking data to commonexternal resoucesHow to pass from MARCto LOD without losing anydata?
