  • Hello…
  • Who’s heard of Talis Lib / Education / Platform
  • Who can tell me what the SW / We 3.0 is?
  • Waves of technology building on what went before Web 1 -&gt; Web 2 -&gt; Web 3
  • Been talked about &amp; played with since the beginning of web TBL article Scientific American 2001 – a pipe dream? Yes it’s here but…
  • Describe what the curve means (without chasm) - ask where they think we are cost/risk follow the leaders - flat screen TVs To those with the technology not always obvious why/how things get adopted Hers a fairy old example.....
  • Describe what the curve means (without chasm) - ask where they think we are cost/risk follow the leaders - flat screen TVs To those with the technology not always obvious why/how things get adopted cassette - CD
  • The practical application of SW principles – Linked Data
  • Warning I’m getting technical for a couple of slides
  • Linked data means…
  • Brief intro to RDF Triples
  • Tim’s principles - explain
  • You can come out from behind the sofa now!
  • The growth of LD – Linked Open Data Cloud
  • Back to Academia – silos of practice/info within &amp; between institutions &amp; libraries &amp; publishers
  • All interlinked – irony moment!
  • Well publish your metadata – don’t hide it Use standard identifiers
  • Aspire shopping based on DOI &amp; CrossRef hosted metadata
  • ID scraped but Metadata looked up from Crossref
  • Consistent representation across lists/courses/lecturers/institutions
  • Enriched reliable display to student
  • Same for books from cat
  • What else can publisher do to help consumption of their material
  • Embedded content – no distracting brand/sales wall
  • So how has Linked Data enabled this
  • Benefits beyond ‘just an application’
  • Benefits in publishers – OReily article in your pack
  • Who’s doing this stuff? Talis Platform inderpins last 2
  • Linked ‘Open’ Data Your business models are going to’ have’ to change Library &amp; Publisher
  • Change is what it means – quite rapid change.

    8. 10. Linked Data <ul><li>URIs – a generic means to identify entities or concepts in the world </li></ul><ul><li>HTTP – a simple yet universal mechanism for retrieving resources, or descriptions of resources </li></ul><ul><li>RDF – a generic graph-based data model with which to structure and link data that describes things in the world </li></ul><ul><li>SPARQL – RDF query language </li></ul>http://www.flickr.com/photos/hryckowian /
    9. 11. RDF Resource Description Framework Triples Subject --- Predicate ---> Object ALPSP --- Held at ---> BIR ALPSP --- web site ---> alpsp.org Triple Store SPARQL Query Language
    10. 12. Linked Data <ul><li>Use URIs as names for things </li></ul><ul><li>Use HTTP URIs so people can look up those names </li></ul><ul><li>When someone looks up a URI, provide useful information, using standards (RDF, SPARQL) </li></ul><ul><li>Include links to other URIs. So they can discover more things. </li></ul>http://www.flickr.com/photos/hryckowian / Principles Tim Berners-Lee
