    • Open Data at The European Library Alastair Dunning Programme Manager @alastairdunning alastair.dunning@kb.nl TEL Annual Meeting Amsterdam September 2013
    • “ T he coolest thing to do with your data will be thought of by someone else ” Rufus Pollock, Jo Walsh (Univer sity of Cambridge, Univer sity of Edinbur gh) http://en.wikiquote.org/wiki/Free_software
    • The European Library Central index of 119m bibliographic records Remote access to a further c.80m Currently using this data limited to catalogue search and API
    • But what if TEL offered a dataset there was open for any type of re-use, even if that use was •commercial •not requiring attribution •open to being remixed
    • => Creating a Creative Commons 0 dataset from metadata aggregated by TEL
    • Inspirations
    • What can be achieved ?
    • Delivering datasets of commercial search providers, helping drive traffic back to libraries
    • Allows research projects to create subsets of data specific to their topic (e.g. Cendari project on WW1 and medieval resources)
    • Allow other developers to enrich the data, helping with semantic interpretation, entity recognition (people, places), clustering of similar or identical records
    • Visualising bibliographic records according to place and time of publication
    • Creating Linked Open Data that allows creates relationships between library metadata and other datasets … which can enrich others’ datasets in turn
    • Initial request for responses went out to member libraries in Summer 2013. TEL now working with libraries on issues Aim to have dataset released by end of year
    • Next Up: Nuno Freire- Technical issues in creating Linked Open Data Julia Fallon – Legal context
