  4. 4. 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
  5. 5. => Creating a Creative Commons 0 dataset from metadata aggregated by TEL
  6. 6. Inspirations
  7. 7. What can be achieved ?
  8. 8. Delivering datasets of commercial search providers, helping drive traffic back to libraries
  9. 9. Allows research projects to create subsets of data specific to their topic (e.g. Cendari project on WW1 and medieval resources)
  10. 10. Allow other developers to enrich the data, helping with semantic interpretation, entity recognition (people, places), clustering of similar or identical records
  11. 11. Visualising bibliographic records according to place and time of publication
  12. 12. Creating Linked Open Data that allows creates relationships between library metadata and other datasets … which can enrich others’ datasets in turn
  13. 13. 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
  14. 14. Next Up: Nuno Freire- Technical issues in creating Linked Open Data Julia Fallon – Legal context
