  • jodischneider jodischneider A very useful presentation about making a major bibliographic dataset into Linked Data.

    Very open about both the benefits and the challenges.

    From this I get the challenges as
    * decreasing resources
    * address multiple constituents (traditional libraries, researchers wanting to data mine catalogs, linked data developers & users)
    * licensing (get attribution while allowing wide reuse)
    * collaborate with the user communities to determine appropriate cross-domain formats
    * existing staff (librarians rather than IT experts), data, and hardware
    * new ways of thinking
    * 'legacy data wasn't designed for this purpose so starting can be problematic'
    * multiple options
    * need careful thought for data modelling, sustainability
    * need to be responsive to technical criticism
    * steep learning curve
    * iterative -- must be willing to make & learn from mistakes
