  • 1. Linked Open Data → the Semantic Web → “Web 3.0” 2. The Semantic Web: metadata added to Web pages that helps computers read and interpret the Internet (RDF: language designed for the semantic web) 3. VIVO is readable by people or machines
  • View profiles at Cornell Med: http://vivo.med.cornell.edu/index.jsp?primary=983349090 Co-author network
  • Note that the provenance of the data (i.e., HR) in VIVO is better than with self-edited online profiles
  • Public also welcome to view VIVO profiles
  • Most teams fail, but those that succeed do so spectacularly (Contractor) – Who goes on the team casts the die
  • IT team must: find data; get permission; map data into right format; load data to ORACLE to test IT team needs ontology expert, proficient with SPARQL, OWL How good/bad is the data in your institution’s directory ? Must distinguish depts. from divisions from programs, who is staff, who is faculty, etc. * Potential role for a librarian
  • Publications harvesting may involve agreements with vendors Author disambiguation becomes a major issue when dealing with thousands of faculty
  • Cornell has a VIVO “curator” at each of its libraries Outreach can include: agreements with vendors for pub info, etc.; faculty annual reporting Library could do a needs assessment to identify target audiences
