  • 1. Building an editable,versionized LOD service for library data May, 16th 2012 ELAG 2012, Palma de Mallorca Felix Ostrowski & Adrian Pohl
  • 2. Agenda Fresnel Display Vocabulary for RDF Implementation Vision
  • 3.
  • 4. Why LOD? - Motivation LOD as ideal basis for distributed cooperative cataloging Use of international and cross-domain web standards leads to  Increased discoverability  Multiple usability of one dataset  Maximized interoperability & re-usability  Flexible data model Expected ROI: Synergy effects through standardization of technology stack
  • 5. Experimental LOD service Launched in 2010 Two subservices  lobid-organisations  lobid-resources Continuously improved
  • 6. lobid-organisations Motivation: the need of URIs for libraries RDF representations of more than 40k international organisations Data sources: German ISIL registry & MARC Organization Code database Not (yet) openly licensed
  • 7. lobid-resources lobid.resources is the LOD interface for open data from the hbz union catalog Public Domain: licensed under CC0 Currently more than 10 M records Links to other library LOD services (GND, DDC...) and to Dbpedia See also
  • 8. Problems Data is produced in legacy systems & added via dumps Data isnt up-to-date Data cant be improved in and fed back to legacy system
  • 9. Vision: Building a service that... is based on Linked Data standards, supports producing/editing RDF, supports re-use of data from the LOD cloud, supports versioning, pushes changes (create, update, delete) in real time.
