  • 1. Open, Linked, Hacked RLUK: Introduction To The European Library 24 Sep 2013 Monday, 30 September 13
  • 2. http://www.flickr.com/photos/withassociates Monday, 30 September 13 What does ‘open’ mean? Not a simple binary open/closed... but rather a continuum Amount of friction... Things that create friction: Explicit restrictions Uncertainty about possible restrictions Unusual/Unfamiliar interfaces (Z39.50 anyone?) Lack of information on data and where it is available Formats - Paul Walk argues we need a ’richer understanding of openness’ which encompasses not just permissive licensing but, more broadly, the ease with which data can be used, taking into consideration aspects such as format and access mechanisms
  • 3. “Open” ©Monday, 30 September 13 Survey about use of RLUK database carried out on behalf of RLUK found: A public domain licence would support 89% of intended uses An attribution licence would support 55% of intended uses A non-commercial licence would support 17% of intended uses No explicit licence would support 11% of intended uses
  • 4. http://shkspr.mobi/blog/2012/03/api-design-is- ui-for-developers/ “Yes, you love XML. Guess what? I don’t!” “Open” Monday, 30 September 13 http://shkspr.mobi/blog/2012/03/api-design-is-ui-for-developers/ JSON and XML
  • 5. “Yes, you love XML. Guess what? I don’t!” MARC “Open” Monday, 30 September 13 http://shkspr.mobi/blog/index.php/2012/03/api-design-is-ui-for-developers/ Complexity of MARC. Sometimes simple is good enough Why do I link to amazon? Why do I use the Amazon API? Survey about use of RLUK database carried out on behalf of RLUK found majority could use MARC 62.9% (n=62) But if you filtered out those from RLUK contributing institutions - changed to more even balance between RDF (format underlying ‘linked data’) and MARC. But some see RDF a complex All this tells us we need to support multiple formats! The European Library - offers JSON, XML and RDF
  • 6. “Linked” http://www.texample.net/tikz/examples/author/alain-matthes/ Monday, 30 September 13 Linked Data Identifiers - create your own, use other peoples

  • 12. Monday, 30 September 13 Stuff that you don’t/can’t or won’t capture - but someone else will. (Books about places that are mentioned in MO archive?) Network effect - collapse the network - one more node makes the difference Provenance

  • 15. “Hacked” Monday, 30 September 13 Image from: http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/2/29/Wargames.jpg Hack days - not ‘hacking’ as in WarGames etc. The why and what of Hack days: Build relationships - between developers and between data/service providers and developers Rapid prototyping - Show the way - Don’t expect finished products (usually) Different types - some ‘invite only’; some ‘everybody welcome’ Sometimes prizes The When - hack day to engage developers in RLUK/TEL data: When? Early next year?
  • 16. “Note Dump” entry to Jisc’s Summer of Student Code http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BIAjaZkdwfk Monday, 30 September 13 The Who? - Who might want to hack RLUK data? Students Researchers Teachers Librarians/Library developers Developers from outside the sector etc. Hack day planned in conjunction with the Open Knowledge Foundation (OKF) - a non-profit organisation founded in 2004 and dedicated to promoting open data and open content in all their forms – including government data, publicly funded research and public domain cultural content. - See more at: http://okfn.org/about/#sthash.8C3M4HHX.dpuf

  • 25. iTunes App Store Monday, 30 September 13 Cambridge iPhone app built by student
  • 26. Monday, 30 September 13 My local council (Warwickshire) released a number of data sets and ran a competition to encourage local developers to build applications on top of this data. One set of data with a list of new books in the library - and a local developer (nothing to do with libraries) built this - shows books, covers (from Amazon) and links to previews in Google books. This WON the competition. Not the only example. Rewired State is an organisation which “runs hackdays where developers show government what is possible”, recently ran a ‘Youth’ event - and one of the winners was based around integrating library services into Facebook
