    RDA and the semantic Web RDA and the semantic Web Presentation Transcript

    • RDA and the semantic Web Lectio magistralis in Library Science by Gordon Dunsire Florence University, Florence, Italy 4th March, 2014
    • In the beginning …
    • In the beginning …
    • 3? Toronto, 1997 In the beginning …
    • General Material Designator (US) General Material Designator (UK) ISBD(G) Content vs Carrier / Haworth Structure of AACR3 Logical analysis / Delsey Type of publication Chief source of information Class of materials ItemSeries Subseries ? $£$£$£!!!
    • Functional Requirements for Bibliographic Records Work Expression Manifestation Item User tasks AACR3 Item Carrier attributes Content attributes
    • Functional Requirements for Bibliographic Records Work Expression Manifestation Item User tasks Carrier attributes Content attributes JSC, 2005
    • Semantic Web (Berners-Lee) Structured collections of information Sets of inference rules Automated reasoning Web of linked data Web of linked documents Web of linked computing devices
    • “This work has author Gordon Dunsire” Resource Description Framework (RDF) Subject – Predicate - Object Subject Predicate Object “This work” “has author” “Gordon Dunsire” ? ? ? Uniform Resource Identifier (URI) ex:1Bd38 ex:ZX3G5 “literal” For machines For humans Triple!
    • ex: “This work” “Gordon Dunsire” ex:“has author”
    • “Gordon Dunsire” ex: Gordon Dunsireex:“has author” ex: “This work” ex:“is author of” ex:“has name”
    • “Gordon Dunsire” ex: Gordon Dunsireex:“has author” ex: “This work” ex:“is author of” ex:“has name” “G. J. Dunsire” ex:“has alternate name” ex: Scotlandex:“has country of birth” “RDA and the Semantic Web” ex:“has title” ex: “That work” ex:“has derivative work” ex:“is derivative work of”
    • “Gordon Dunsire” ex: Gordon Dunsireex:“has author” ex: “This work” ex:“is author of” ex:“has name” “G. J. Dunsire” ex:“has alternate name” ex: Scotlandex:“has country of birth” “RDA and the Semantic Web” ex:“has title” ex: “That work” ex:“has derivative work” ex:“is derivative work of”
    • One giant global graph
    • ex: Gordon Dunsireex:“has author” ex: “This work” Data vs Ontology Data triple URI ex:“has label” ex: hasAuthor “has author” Ontology triple “Property” ex:“has type”
    • RDA vocabulary example ex:“has label” rdact: 1010 “notated music”@en “schriftlich fixierte Musik”@de ex:“has label” rdact: 1016 ex: “is related to” “tactile notated music”@en ex:“has label”
    • ex:“has label” ex: Property1 “has author”@en ex: Property2 ex: “is sub- property of” “has creator”@en ex:“has label” Inference rules: sub-property ex: “This work” “Gordon Dunsire” ex:“has author” ex: “This work” “Gordon Dunsire” ex:“has creator”
    • RDF vocabularies: DCT + RDFS Dublin Core Terms + RDF Schema rdfs:label dcterms: creator “Creator” dcterms: Agent “Agent” rdfs:label rdfs:range “A resource that acts or has the power to act.”rdfs:comment Source of URIs
    • Inference rules: range dcterms: creator dcterms: agentrdfs:range ex: Gordon Dunsiredcterms:creator ex: “This work” ex: Gordon Dunsire rdfs:type dcterms: Agent
    • Data model meeting Panizzi
    • Data model meeting Members of RDA and Semantic Web communities British Library, London, 30 April – 1 May 2007 “… agreed that RDA and DCMI should work together …” (Dublin Core Metadata Initiative)
    • Benefits expected The library community gets a metadata standard that is compatible with the Web Architecture and that is fully interoperable with other Semantic Web initiatives The DCMI community gets a libraries application profile firmly based on the DCAM and FRBR (which will be a high profile exemplar for others to follow) The Semantic Web community get a significant pool of well thought-out metadata terms to re-use There is wider uptake of RDA
    • Activities Development of an RDA Element Vocabulary Development of an RDA DC Application Profile based on FRBR and FRAD Disclosure of RDA Value Vocabularies using RDF/RDFS/SKOS
    • Opaque URI (only for machines) Compact URI = rdact:1010
    • DCAM and RDA Dublin Core Abstract Model <indecs> Basic RDA metadata structures ex: ExpressionURI rdae: “has content type” rdfs:label rdact: 1010 “notated music”@en skos:inScheme rdaterms: RDAContentType
    • rdac: “Manifestation” rdfs: “domain” High-level metadata structures rdam: “has title” rdau: “has title” rdam: “has title proper” rdau: “has title proper” rdfs: “domain” sP sP sP sP = rdfs:”sub-property of” Constrained by FRBR (domain) Unconstrained
    • rdac: “Work” rdfs: “domain” Relationship designators rdaw: “has creator” rdau: “has creator” rdaw: “has designer” rdau: “has designer” sP sP sP sP = rdfs:”sub-property of” rdac: “Agent” rdfs: “range”
    • Entity Properties Range No Range Work 235 200 35 Expression 235 190 45 Manifestation 210 50 160 Item 50 40 10 Agent 225 175 50 Link-ability Triple clusters Triple chains Literals Relationships AttributesDomains Covering all media
    • rdaw: “is video screenplay (work)” rdaw: “is screenplay (work)” rdaw: “is complemented by (work)” rdaw: “has accompanying work relationship with” rdaw: “has related work”Rich detail sub-property ladder
    • rdau: “has voice actor” rdau: “has actor” rdau: “has performer” rdau: “has creator” rdaw: “has creator” Interoperability dcterms: “creator” dc: “creator” ???
    • To do Publish more RDA value vocabularies Develop cross-entity elements E.g. Work-Expression relationship designators Develop Application Profile for RDA “core” Develop RDF elements for aggregated statements (RDA, ISBD, MARC, …) E.g. Place of publication -> Publication statement
    • Achievements: 5+ years on Rich set of elements and value vocabularies for “bibliographic control” At global, “universal” level “a metadata standard that is compatible with the Web Architecture and that is fully interoperable with other Semantic Web initiatives” “a significant pool of well thought-out metadata terms to re-use” Wider uptake of RDA? …
