    • A Giant EduGraph Giant Global Graph Semantic Web (aka Giant Global Graph) Linked Open Data Aggregating / Exposing Higher Education Info
    • Courses Course Groups Institutions / Divisions Online Spaces Places Events / Lectures Library / Book Data Clubs / Organizations Requirements / Credentials Flickr photo by smannion CC-BY-NC-SA Image from Wikipedia GNU-FDL
    • Semantic Web Identify things with a URI (a node in a graph) Frankenstein (URI)
    • Semantic Web Data is Nodes + Relationships between them CHEMISTRY101 S09-Group (URI) Frankenstein (URI) Alice daStudent (URI) Studies text Member
    • Linked Open Data Semantic Web + some technical goodies Open on web
    • Linked Open Data Flickr image by R é gis Gaidot CC-BY-NC
    • What Will It Look Like? Taps into LOD Cloud DBpedia references for topics, people events, etc. GeoNames for places, buildings, etc. OpenLibrary for book info Domain-specific sources (MusicBrainz, Linked Movie Database, more)
    • What Will It Look Like? Uses existing vocabularies • SIOC - Semantically Interlinked Online Communities • FOAF - Friend Of A Friend • DCTERMS - Dublin Core • BIBO - Bibliographic Info • AIISO - Academic Institution Internal Structure Ontology . . . and more, plus some being developed
    • Where Will The Data Come From? Scrape existing structured data Courses and Course Groups Places People Requirements & Credentials
    • Where Will The Data Come From? Zotero (actually Bruce D'Arcus' ) likely to expose SW-friendly data in the future
    • Where Will The Data Come From? -- 13 years worth of circulation data anonymized and published as XML -- took about 3 days to RDFize it and make an Exhibit Follow lead of Univ. of Huddersfield
    • Where Will The Data Come From? Talis Project Xiphos -- Putting UK university reading lists into RDF
    • Where Will The Data Come From? Need an easy interface to relate course group data to LOD data (lookup.dbpedia.org) . . . and to relate people and course groups with online spaces . . . and to add data that isn't otherwise available
