  • 17. Primo: current situation Bibliographic metadata formats usually don’t have fields for research information In Primo: Add-ons needed, two approaches: • Harvesting extra author and publication identifiers • Text mining + semantic analysis 0004,_Bergarbeiter_bohrend.jpg 76

  • 48. Experiences Mannheim ● Metadata of research data and publications rarely contain links ● Many different reference styles ● References to research data mostly incomplete ● Integration can be very hard, e.g. adapting the metadata format and performing transformations ● First evaluation result?
  • 49. Experiences Amsterdam ● Local Amsterdam repository and CRIS not optimal for reuse and linking (yet) ● No references to research datasets, projects in local, national and global systems (yet) ● Research project information not available ● Library systems in general not equipped for ○ non-bibliographic information ○ processing linked data, RDF ● Primo CAN be used for this, with lots of extra work
  • 50. Pros and Cons (Mannheim) Pro ● Links can be easily integrated, e.g. by using Enrichments ● Integration of research data to have only one system Con ● Fulltexts are needed to identify references ● Integration very costly without standardized interface
  • 51. Pros and Cons (Amsterdam) Pro ● Identifiers are ready to use ● Links can be easily integrated ● Extra information can be embedded in extra tab in UI, but with workarounds Con ● Identifiers, RDF not always available in data sources ● PNX format not suited for research information ● Integration very costly without standardized interface
  • 52. Recommendations Ex Libris Primo • Include non-bibliographic metadata in PNX o (links section, additional data section, new research section?) • Harvest RDF • Resolve RDF/URIs o During normalisation (in PNX) o On the fly (in search result) • Easily create extra tab with PNX data • Publish Primo Central index as linked open data • Primo Central: harvest research information
  • 53. Recommendations Publishers, Aggregators • Add additional references • Add additional metadata o Publication ID o Author ID o Research project ID o Dataset ID • Publish as Linked Open Data
  • 54. Recommendations Researchers, Authors • Proper citation of research data, e.g. by using unique identifiers like DOIs • Publish and register research data as open as possible ● Many interesting ideas/projects: ○ OpenScience ○ DataCite ○ OpenAIRE ○ DCC ○ RD-A ○ W3C-ROSC
