Digital Libraries: Linked Open Data (LOD) .. what comes next
Transformation of Digital Library in Libraries Ora Zehavi
With their expertise in search, metadata generation, collection development librarians should actually be well positioned to understand and implement linked data.
With developments of Resource Description & Access (RDA), Functional Requirements for Bibliographic Records (FRBR), and Functional Requirements for Authority Data (FRAD) standards libraries are now in the transition towards linked data
Linked Data is about using the Web to connect related data that wasn't previously linked, or using the Web to lower the barriers to linking data currently linked using other methods
Libraries & Linked data
Linked Open Data is a way of publishing structured data that allows metadata to be connected and enriched, so that different representations of the same content can be found, and links made between related resources
Linked data represents a major opportunity for libraries to integrate information resources with the wider web.
It provides a foundation for better data management, allowing libraries to store, share and re-use data as needed
