Linking Library Data Today (World IA Day 2014)

234

Published on

These days one hears a lot about the promise of Linked Data, and how it will make the collected knowledge of the world accessible to all, or at least more. Unfortunately, many Linked Data initiatives require massive changes in data formats, workflows, and systems that existing institutions may not be prepared to attempt. Biblionarrator is a discovery layer/catalog system that enables us to explore connections between traditional records (both bibliographic, and non-bibliographic), without requiring systemic changes from the institution. Even on a very modest scale, focusing on connections and adding network visualization and link browsing to a traditional catalog (or database interface) can offer new -- and sometimes surprising -- insights into a collection or dataset. This presentation includes a demonstration of the open source Biblionarrator software, and shows how a link-oriented approach to legacy records can improve the discovery experience.

Vast in scope, exhaustive in original research, written with passion, narrative skill, and human sympathy, A People's Tragedy is a profound account of the Russian Revolution for a new generation. Many consider the Russian Revolution to be the most significant event of the twentieth century. Distinguished scholar Orlando Figes presents a panorama of Russian society on the eve of that revolution, and then narrates the story of how these social forces were violently erased. Within the broad stokes of war and revolution are miniature histories of individuals, in which Figes follows the main players' fortunes as they saw their hopes die and their world crash into ruins. Unlike previous accounts that trace the origins of the revolution to overreaching political forces and ideals, Figes argues that the failure of democracy in 1917 was deeply rooted in Russian culture and social history and that what had started as a people's revolution contained the seeds of its degeneration into violence and dictatorship. A People's Tragedy is a masterful and original synthesis by a mature scholar, presented in a compelling and accessibly human narrative. . http://www.worldcat.org/oclc/38821665 http://schema.org/about _:B7ed444aaX3A1441a08a727X3A929 . http://www.worldcat.org/oclc/38821665 http://schema.org/author http://viaf.org/viaf/92926708 . http://www.worldcat.org/oclc/38821665 http://schema.org/publisher _:B7ed444aaX3A1441a08a727X3A923 . http://www.worldcat.org/oclc/38821665 http://www.w3.org/2000/01/rdf-schema#seeAlso http://www.worldcat.org/isbn/9780140243642 . http://www.worldcat.org/oclc/38821665 http://purl.org/library/oclcnum 38821665 . http://www.worldcat.org/oclc/38821665 http://schema.org/name A people's tragedy : the Russian Revolution, 1891-1924 . http://www.worldcat.org/oclc/38821665 http://schema.org/about _:B7ed444aaX3A1441a08a727X3A924 . http://www.worldcat.org/oclc/38821665 http://schema.org/inLanguage en . http://www.worldcat.org/oclc/38821665 http://purl.org/library/placeOfPublication http://id.loc.gov/vocabulary/countries/nyu . http://www.worldcat.org/oclc/38821665 http://schema.org/about _:B7ed444aaX3A1441a08a727X3A920 . http://www.worldcat.org/oclc/38821665 http://www.w3.org/2002/07/owl#sameAs info:oclcnum/38821665 . http://www.worldcat.org/oclc/38821665 http://schema.org/description Illustrations -- Preface -- Glossary -- Notes on dates -- Maps -- Part one.

  7. 7. Linking data (no capital letters)* ● ● The WWW is all about human curation and human content generation. That legacy data was generated by a person. That person knew something about Russia during the reign of Nicholas II (well, maybe). Wouldn't it be nice if the cataloger could communicate that? *It offended my sensibilities to have the first letter on the slide lowercase.
  8. 8. What does our data look like after some linking?
  9. 9. What sort of additional value can I add?
  10. 10. Couldn't a computer do some of this? Of course! A lot of this information is on Wikipedia! With Linked Data, a computer could extract it from Wikipedia. One day. Probably. We just have to fit the world's complexity into a formal ontology. Let's go on to the next slide before we get depressed, shall we?
  11. 11. The future ● Automatic information extraction and linking? ● Human-centered “Big Data”? ● I don't know! It hasn't happened yet!
