  • 2. Day 1: RDF, SPARQL and Discussion<br />Brief look at RDF and SPARQL<br />Discussion<br />What constitutes data worth linking to?<br />How to find datasets suitable for interlinking? <br />How to make my dataset worth linking to?<br />How to encourage others to link to my data?<br />What is the added value of links? <br />How to determine the quality of a link?<br />
  • 3. Discussion: What constitutes data worth linking to?<br />Size and coverage (e.g., DBPedia)<br />Uniqueness - unique content attracts links (e.g., holdings in library setting)<br />Completeness<br />
  • 4. Discussion: How to encourage others to link to my data?<br />Make usage simple.<br />Provide data in accessible formats.<br />Provide downloadable data dumps<br />Use open licence<br />
  • 5. Discussion: What is the added value of links? <br />Enrich web sites with information curated elsewhere<br />Provides multi-lingual content<br />Support resource discovery through authority files, thesauri, synonym lists, etc.<br />Exploit additional structure imported from Linked Data sources into our applications<br />
  • 6. Day 2: Tools<br />Worked in Groups Looking at tools<br />SILK Framework<br />A Link Discovery Framework for the Web of Data<br />http://www4.wiwiss.fu-berlin.de/bizer/silk/<br />LIMES - http://aksw.org/Projects/limes<br />Prefix.cc - http://prefix.cc/<br />4store RDF triple store - http://www.4store.org/<br />
  • 7. Outcomes<br />We learnt about RDF, SPARQL, Triples etc <br />Workshop documents clear and well prepared<br />Very useful pointers on SPARQL,triple store tools, and interlinking datasets<br />Great to try SILK – should be useful for subject, place and names interlinking across datasets <br />
  • 8. Outcomes <br />Workshop a little ‘uncomfortable’ for some not already familiar with RDF, SPARQL <br />Steep learning curve, “very programmery”<br />Useful to have a separate SPARQL workshop<br />More time to workas a team<br />Jindřich was very helpful. Thanks!<br />More feedback at http://bit.ly/linking-library-data<br />
