Published on

A proposal to create a 'union' of library catalogues using WordPress MU and Scriblio, providing the opportunity for independently managed library catalogue sites which form an aggregated catalogue. Data could be exposed as RDF using Triplify.

Transcript of "Bibliografreedom"

  1. 1. Joss Winn Paul Stainthorp “Bibliografreedom” Liberating library catalogue data to the semantic web with WordPress MU …a work in progress
  2. 2. Hello • Joss Winn • Technology Officer, University of Lincoln • jwinn@lincoln.ac.uk • http://joss.blogs.lincoln.ac.uk/ • Twitter @josswinn • Paul Stainthorp • E-resources Librarian, University of Lincoln • pstainthorp@lincoln.ac.uk • http://blogs.library.lincoln.ac.uk/ • Twitter @pstainthorp
  3. 3. The elements • Source library catalogue(s) • WordPress Multi-user (WPMU) • Scriblio – example (Plymouth State Uni.) • Site-wide tags – example (Uni. of Lincoln) • Triplify output – example
  4. 4. Un The Semantic Web DF io n /R m Ca RDF N3 to t /A alo S gu RS e Triplify MySQL Managed on USERS (discovery / interaction) behalf of Scriblio (aggregated; site-wide) libraries Wordpress Multi-user (WPMU) Scriblio Scriblio Scriblio Managed by each library OPAC OPAC OPAC Library “A” Library “B” Library “C”
  5. 5. Benefits • A quick ‘n’ dirty Library 2.0 OPAC • Easy incorporation of 3rd-party enhancements (Amazon etc.) • A devolved Union Catalogue; each source catalogue managed by its owners • The WordPress ‘ecosystem’ • Liberation of bibliographic data to the semantic web • Then what…? What could you do with OPAC RDF data?
  6. 6. To-do list • Scriblio is not very ‘atomic’ – ‘blobs’ of data not ideal for semantic web approach • Scriblio project is still a bit ‘raw’ – better catalogue imports and documentation • Triplify config file still needs customising to make the most of Scriblio • Needs source material! Libraries willing to maintain a Scriblio version of their OPAC
