    A Linked Data based index of library institutions A Linked Data based index of library institutions Presentation Transcript

    • A Linked Data based index of library institutions Felix Ostrowski ostrowski@hbz-nrw.de Talis Open Day: Linked Data and Libraries Wednesday 21st July 2010 British Library Conference Centre
    • Background  For various reasons, we (will) need to link to libraries and related organisations  Libraries don't have URIs  Minting URIs is easy, since they have stable „non-web“ identifiers (ISILs): http://lobid.org/organisation/DE-605  Domain + ISIL = Done!?
    • But what about some „useful information“?  Convert existing databases to provide information „using the standards“: Database of German libraries MARC Organization Codes Search  Currently only very basic information (name, address and contact, using FOAF and vCard)  In the long run, use the Library Ontology
    • How to enhance the quality of the data?  Source databases  differ in detail  are often outdated  Provide editing capabilities? No, because libraries have websites!  Usually only human readable  RDFa turns the website into a machine readable interface  Further reading: Nodalities blog post
    • Next steps  Include more databases  Provide SPARQL-endpoint and search capabilities  Make modelling decisions (e.g. opening hours)  Address © issues  Make libraries aware  Libraries: provide RDFa  Harvest web-sites
    • Thank You! Questions? Now or never! (Actually, any time to: ostrowski@hbz-nrw.de) You are more than welcome to comment on http://blog.lobid.org/
