  3. 3. Purpose  of  exercise   •  Make  legacy  scien)fic  literature  citable  via   modern  systems   –  Make  250+  years  of  scholarly  communica)ons   available  via  new  tools   •  Assign  contemporary  iden)fiers  to  legacy   literature   –  DOI   –  ISBN   –  ISSN   Freeland.    ALA  Midwinter.    21  Jan  2012.                                                                                @chrisfreeland      #bhlib     #alamw12

  5. 5. DOI,  ISBN,  ISSN,  ei,  ei,…uh  oh…   •  Ran  into  trouble  with  each  agency   –  BHL  isn’t  a  publisher   –  BHL  is  a  consor)um,  not  a  separate  legal  en)ty   –  BHL  doesn’t  own  all  the  content  it  serves   –  “We  know  we  need  a  policy  on  that…”   …and  on…and  on…for  more  than  3  years…     CrossRef  DOIs:  path  of  least  resistance   Freeland.    ALA  Midwinter.    21  Jan  2012.                                                                                @chrisfreeland      #bhlib     #alamw12  
  6. 6. Challenge:  Title  Matching  for  Uniqueness   •  Only  want  1  DOI  per  intellectual,  citable  unit   •  Differences  between  cataloging  &  publishing     –  Libraries:   <datafield  tag="245"  ind1="1"  ind2="4">            <subfield  code="a">The  amoebae  living  in  man;</subfield>            <subfield  code="b">a  zoological  monograph,</subfield>            <subfield  code="c">by  Clifford  Dobell.</subfield>         </datafield>     –  Publishers:   <)tle>The  amoebae  living  in  man;  a  zoological  monograph</)tle>     Freeland.    ALA  Midwinter.    21  Jan  2012.                                                                                @chrisfreeland      #bhlib     #alamw12  
  7. 7. Challenge:     Monographs/Series/Monographic  Series   •  “Report  on  the  Rhynchota  collected  by  the  Wollaston   Expedi)on  in  Dutch  New  Guinea”   –  Published  in  1914   –  Bound  &  catalogued  as  a  monograph   –  Scanned  as  a  monograph   –  Assigned  a  DOI  as  a  monograph  in  BHL: hqp://dx.doi.org/10.5962/bhl.)tle.13791   •  Transac)ons  of  the  Zoological  Society  of  London,  vol.   20,  pt.  11.   –  Presented  by  current  publisher  of  that  )tle  as  an  ar)cle   –  Assigned  a  DOI  as  a  journal  ar)cle:   hqp://dx.doi.org/10.1111/j.1469-­‐7998.1912.tb07839x     Guess  who  provides  free  access?   Freeland.    ALA  Midwinter.    21  Jan  2012.                                                                                @chrisfreeland      #bhlib     #alamw12  
  8. 8. Challenge:  Ownership  of  Backfiles   •  Who  owns  public  domain  works?   –  Some  publishers  consider  they  have  ownership  of   backfiles  for  journals  they  currently  publish   •  Long  running  series  in  natural  history   •  Cur$s’s  Botanical  Magazine,  since  1787   •  Those  publishers  assign  DOIs  to  their  current   volumes   •  BHL  assigns  DOIs  to  the  public  domain  works   we’ve  digi)zed   Guess  who  is  upset?   Freeland.    ALA  Midwinter.    21  Jan  2012.                                                                                @chrisfreeland      #bhlib     #alamw12  
  9. 9. BHL   DOIs     in     Use  
  10. 10. Linked  Data   •  CrossRef  DOIs  are  available  as  Linked  Data,   announced  April  2011:   –  hqp://www.crossref.org/CrossTech/2011/04/ content_nego)a)on_for_crossr.html     •  Awesome!      :)   •  But  I  couldn’t  get  it  to  work      :(     Freeland.    ALA  Midwinter.    21  Jan  2012.                                                                                @chrisfreeland      #bhlib     #alamw12  
  11. 11. So  I  asked  Twiqer  for  help…   •  Any  #lodlam  #LOD  ppl  interested  in  taking  a   look  at  open  #bhlib  data?  hqp://t.co/is1a2dUl     Freeland.    ALA  Midwinter.    21  Jan  2012.                                                                                @chrisfreeland      #bhlib     #alamw12  
  12. 12. …and  Twiqer  responded   @cajunjoel   •  @chrisfreeland  I  poked  at  making  this  work,   but  my  results  were  not  encouraging.  See  the   comment  on  your  blog  post  for  details.   @asaletourneau:   •  @chrisfreeland  Got  this  ht.ly/8zTuk  using   morph.talis.com  awer  conver)ng  BibTEX  to   RDF  using  ht.ly/8zTxq   Freeland.    ALA  Midwinter.    21  Jan  2012.                                                                                @chrisfreeland      #bhlib     #alamw12  
  13. 13. I  also  asked  CrossRef  support   •  Turns  out  it’s  a  bug!   •  CrossRef  DOI  API  wasn’t  returning  results  for   ISBN-­‐less  books   –  And  remember,  we  don’t  have  those  because  of  the   ugly  problems   •  We  iden)fied  &  resolved  a  problem  via  Twiqer!   –  Crowdsourcing  #FTW!   @cajunjoel   –  Talk  about  #lod  bringing  people  together!   @asaletourneau   •  And  all  because  of  this  panel   Freeland.    ALA  Midwinter.    21  Jan  2012.                                                                                @chrisfreeland      #bhlib     #alamw12  
  14. 14. And  then  a  dash  of  reality   @rdmpage   •  “…why  bother  with  linked  data?  Obviously  I   know  the  stock  answer,  but  the  reality  is  that   most  "linked  data"  isn't  linked.…CrossRef  RDF   for  an  ar)cle  the  only  external  link   (eventually)  is  to  hqp:// periodicals.dataincubator.org/  via  the  ISSN.   Author  names  have  arbitrary,  non-­‐resolvable   URIs.  So  effec)vely  the  data  is  a  silo.  Linked   data,  yes,  RDF,  yes,  but  s)ll  a  silo.”   Freeland.    ALA  Midwinter.    21  Jan  2012.                                                                                @chrisfreeland      #bhlib     #alamw12  
  15. 15. Takeaway   •  Assigning  modern  iden)fiers  to  legacy  content  is   challenging   –  “We  know  we  need  a  policy  on  that…”   –  Benefits  are  there,  but  may  be  slow  to  realize   •  Working  with  an  agency  like  CrossRef  has  its   advantages   –  Support   –  Tech  advances:  they  flip  a  switch,  instaLOD   –  Disadvantages:  Co$t,  may  s)ll  need  custom  solu)ons   for  emerging  technologies   •  Linked  Data  is  conceptually  promising,  but   fraught  with  uncertainty  in  produc)on  systems   Freeland.    ALA  Midwinter.    21  Jan  2012.                                                                                @chrisfreeland      #bhlib     #alamw12
