  • Linked Library Data, LOD-LAM, & the Dublin Core Metadata InitiativePresented 2012-06-01Linked Ancient World Data InstituteCorey A Harper
  • Topical Overview • - Value Vocabs • Talk outline: - id.loc * A few principles that didnt come up yesterday - fast - Open vs. Closed world - viaf assumption - Instance data - Graph Merging - British Library stuff & more * LOD-LAM - W3C Incubator Group * Libraries in the LOD-LAM - Archives - RDF Vocabs - ALA, IFLA, ExL, & more - Non-Library * DCMI * BiBo - DCAM * FRBR Fake * DCterms - Metadata Registries - Library - Vocabulary Alignment * Official FRBR * Where does this fit? * ISBD & other IFLA * Services from Libraries & Library * MARC 21 Data? * BibFrame * Use cases for LAWDI & AW * RDAdigi Scholarship 2012-06-01 Linked Ancient World Data Institute 2
  • 3 Takeaways • Libraries are doing a lot in this space • We want to do more, including building infrastructure for your research • The Dublin Core Metadata Initiative is more than a set of vocabularies. We’re working on how to do this 2012-06-01 Linked Ancient World Data Institute 3
  • Library Metadata • Rich stores of MARC, MODS, &c. • Robust Controlled Vocabularies  Subject Heading lists  Code lists  Thesauri • Emerging data model in FR* 2012-06-01 Linked Ancient World Data Institute 4
  • Era of “Perpetual Metadata Heterogeneity” --or--2012-06-01 Linked Ancient World Data Institute 5

  • Bibliographic Vocabs • Bibliographic Ontology (Bibo)  Zotero, Omeka, EPrints and Others • FRBR – unofficial  And now Official (Thank you IFLA!) • International Standard for Bibliographic Description (ISBD) • Resource Description and Access (RDA) 2012-06-01 Linked Ancient World Data Institute 7

  • Linked Library [Archive, Museum] Data • LIBRIS (Swedish Union Catalog) • Library of Congress (LCSH, OSI) • German National Library • Hungarian National Library • British Library • Europeana • Archives Hub, LOCAH & Linking Lives 2012-06-01 Linked Ancient World Data Institute 9
  • LCSH in Dublin Core • Encoding Scheme for DC Subject • No easy way to draw on equivelent terms and cross-references • Abstract Model, RDF and SKOS are enabling applications to make use of the whole vocabulary 2012-06-01 Linked Ancient World Data Institute 10
  • LCSH as a Web Service! • Uses principles of linked data • lcsh.info -> id.loc.gov • People noticed when taken down • Links to French Subject Headings • URIs for Literal String lookup • http://id.loc.gov/authorities/label/World Wide Web 2012-06-01 Linked Ancient World Data Institute 11

  • Resource Description and Access • Current focus on MARC  Much criticism  Within MARC, not a tremendous change  Different problems outside of MARC • Possible focus outside of MARC  RDA as realization of FRBR  RDA as Metadata Vocabularies  RDA as related to Bibo 2012-06-01 Linked Ancient World Data Institute 22
  • RDA as Metadata Vocabularies Slide Adapted from Diane Hillmann • RDA elements, roles and vocabularies have been provisionally registered • IFLA FRBRer and ISBD elements and vocabularies have been officially registered • Discussions about long term maintenance of both RDA and the vocabularies • Effort to create multi-language RDA Vocabularies 2012-06-01 Linked Ancient World Data Institute 23
  • Metadata Registries • Formerly NSDL Registry  Now “Open Metadata Registry”  Managing Vocabularies  Providing Vocabulary Services • RDA – Now adding translations • IFLA Work  FRBR, FRAD, FRSAD, ISBD 2012-06-01 Linked Ancient World Data Institute 24

  • BIBO and RDAVocab • Open question re: alignment  DCMI Vocabulary Management & Alignment • Simplified view of Bib Data is useful  Interlinking with more general data  Interlinking with non-library domain data • FRBR as internal model for library domain • Examples 2012-06-01 Linked Ancient World Data Institute 26
  • Dublin Core Efforts • Dublin Core Metadata Initiative, more than Dublin Core Metadata Element Set • Dublin Core Abstract Model • Application and Description Set Profiles • Harmonization, not Normalization • Vocabulary Management Infrastructure  Including Mapping Efforts 2012-06-01 Linked Ancient World Data Institute 27
  • DCAM Resource Model 2012-06-01 Linked Ancient World Data Institute 28
  • DCAM Resource Model: Subtle Difference • Property-Value pairs built around notion of “Described Resource” • Centralizing triples around a single object  Becoming Property-Value pairs • Preserving DC 1:1 Principle by including descriptions of “related resource” • How to validate??? 2012-06-01 Linked Ancient World Data Institute 29

  • Conclusions • Distributed bibliographic control environment  Linking Data  Focus on identification over description • “In short, by treating values as non-literal resources and assigning URIs to them we give ourselves (and others) the hooks on which to hang further descriptions.” - Andy Powell 2012-06-01 Linked Ancient World Data Institute 31
  • W3C Linked Library Data Incubator • Collected, Curated and Clustered over 50 Use Cases • Mined use cases for functional requirements and design patterns • Recommendations to W3C  Should lead to Working Groups (or new Community Groups) • http://www.w3.org/2005/Incubator/lld/ 2012-06-01 Linked Ancient World Data Institute 32
  • Other Activities • ALCTS/LITA Linked Library Data IG • IFLA Semantic Web IG  https://wiki.d-nb.de/x/vA10Ag • Open Knowledge Foundation  http://okfn.org/ • CKAN Linked Library Data Group:  http://ckan.net/group/lld • LC’s Bibliographic Framework Initiative  http://www.loc.gov/marc/transition/ • IGELU Linked Data Interest Group  http://igelu.org/special-interests/lod 2012-06-01 Linked Ancient World Data Institute 33
