  • LOD-LAM
    • Jenel Farrell - SAA 2011
    • Metadata Object Roundtable
  • LINKED OPEN DATA DATA DATA
  • LIBRARIES ARCHIVES MUSEUMS MUSEUMS MUSEUMS
  • The current web is a web of documents intended for h uman interpretation
  • Data is locked in closed silos
  • The linked data vision is to...
    • Move away from the repository-centric mind-set and open data silos
    • Publish data applications computers can access & interpret
    • Use “standards” in the form of common Web technologies
  • Making it possible for applications to look up (meta)data ...
  • ...about things books concepts people places by looking up their names http://dbpedia.org/resource/The_Metamorphosis on the web web web web web
  • But, to allow applications to look up metadata in your database, we need some technology
  • Uniform Resource Identifier (URI)
    • URI is a string of characters used to identify (UI) a name or resource on the internet
    • URIs are more specific than URLs, which name the location of something. URIs are the ‘thing’
  • Resource Description Framework (RDF)
    • In addition to having a unique identifier for your ‘thing’, you need RDF, which is a model for representing metadata on the web
    • This representation comes in the form of statements, which are called ‘triples’
    • Triples define the relationships between things
    • Language for describing vocabularies (there are others)
    • Way to represent info on the web
  • Simple Knowledge Organization System (SKOS)
    • A language (built on RDF) for describing controlled vocabularies
      • thesauri
      • classification schemes
      • taxonomies
      • subject-heading systems
  • SPARQL
    • And, of course, a language to query the data
    • SPARQL is a query language built on RDF
  • DBPedia... The main objective of DBpedia is to extract structured information from Wikipedia, convert it into RDF, and make it freely available on the Web. In a nutshell, DBpedia is the Semantic Web mirror of Wikipedia.
  • In a nutshell, the basics of LINKED OPEN DATA LINKED OPEN DATA LINKED OPEN DATA
  • Make your stuff available on the web (whatever format) under an open license
  • Make your data available as structured data (ex. CSV table instead of an image scan of a table)
  • Use non-proprietary formats (CSV instead of Excel)
  • Use URIs to identify things , so that people can point at your stuff
  • Link your data to other data to provide context
  • Linked data is essential to connect the semantic web
  • By linking up data, we gain access to many more databases & discover new connections
