The LODE-BD Recommendations present a reference tool that assist bibliographic data providers in selecting appropriate encoding strategies according to their needs in order to facilitate metadata exchange by, for example, constructing crosswalks between their local data formats and widely-used formats or even with a Linked Data representation. The LODE-BD Recommendations aim to address two questions: how to encode bibliographic data hosted by diverse open repositories for the purpose of exchanging data across data providers; and how to encode these data as Linked Open Data (LOD) - enabled bibliographic data.
The core component of the LODE-BD Recommendations report contains a set of recommended decision-making trees for common properties used in describing a bibliographic resource instance (article, monograph, thesis, conference paper, presentation material, research report, learning object, etc. - in print or electronic format). Each decision tree is delivered with various acting points and the matching encoding suggestions, usually with multiple options.
LODE-BD is a part of a series of LODE recommendations overarching a wide range of resource types including the encoding of value vocabularies used in describing agents, places, and topics in bibliographic data.
