  2. 2. Topical Overview • - Value Vocabs • Talk outline: - id.loc * A few principles that didnt come up yesterday - fast - Open vs. Closed world - viaf assumption - Instance data - Graph Merging - British Library stuff & more * LOD-LAM - W3C Incubator Group * Libraries in the LOD-LAM - Archives - RDF Vocabs - ALA, IFLA, ExL, & more - Non-Library * DCMI * BiBo - DCAM * FRBR Fake * DCterms - Metadata Registries - Library - Vocabulary Alignment * Official FRBR * Where does this fit? * ISBD & other IFLA * Services from Libraries & Library * MARC 21 Data? * BibFrame * Use cases for LAWDI & AW * RDAdigi Scholarship 2012-06-01 Linked Ancient World Data Institute 2
  3. 3. 3 Takeaways • Libraries are doing a lot in this space • We want to do more, including building infrastructure for your research • The Dublin Core Metadata Initiative is more than a set of vocabularies. We’re working on how to do this 2012-06-01 Linked Ancient World Data Institute 3

  31. 31. Conclusions • Distributed bibliographic control environment  Linking Data  Focus on identification over description • “In short, by treating values as non-literal resources and assigning URIs to them we give ourselves (and others) the hooks on which to hang further descriptions.” - Andy Powell 2012-06-01 Linked Ancient World Data Institute 31
  32. 32. W3C Linked Library Data Incubator • Collected, Curated and Clustered over 50 Use Cases • Mined use cases for functional requirements and design patterns • Recommendations to W3C  Should lead to Working Groups (or new Community Groups) • http://www.w3.org/2005/Incubator/lld/ 2012-06-01 Linked Ancient World Data Institute 32
