Editor's Notes

  • Intro

    Me
    NCSU position
    GOKb PM

    Jennifer
    GOKb editor
  • Wanted to share this quote
    Captures the point of GOKb – creating efficiencies and space for innovation with the KB
    Also illustrates that the idea of a community KB has been around for a while now
  • So I’ll start out with a quick overview of GOKb.
  • First off, GOKb is an e-resources KB
    Similarities to commercial products – titles, packages, platforms, holdings
    Captures relationships between entities
    Going beyond traditional model by capturing more complex relationships, changes over time
  • GOKb is also open data
    CC0, ECL
    Can be used by anyone, including commercial
  • Community managed
    Data in kb is managed by the community – started with OLE partners, growing to include new
    Come together to capture the global info that is the same for everyone
    Can also work at different levels, like national and consortial data
  • Building a foundation for GOKb
    Loading data using OpenRefine – focus on sourcing data, streaming lining process
    Enhancement – resolving errors, title history work
    APIs – allow people to use data externally – OLE, hoping it will lead to new ideas
    Partnerships – getting new partners to help build; working with pubs and vendors as well
  • GOKb is open to public – go and check it out
  • Now I’ll spend a little time talking about what’s next for GOKb
  • First off is more data – we need to become more comprehensive to be truly useful
    Working with free data sources like CUFTS and KB+
    Improving our data loading process
    Hoping to get bigger partnerships with data providers
    We want to talk to people who want to help us build it
  • That leads into more partners
    We also need a critical mass of people not just building but using the tool
    Have OLE and KB+ hoping to implement
    Looking for others who could use this data
  • Ebooks!
    Huge undertaking – we’re still figuring out if we can do it
    Buy-in from UK
    Focus on decision support and tracking
  • Open access intersections
    Tracking things like hybrid OA, embargo lengths
    Pulling in cross-ref data – hybrid % idea
  • Linked data
    This is almost done
    Allow interconnections with other data sets
    VIAF, LCNAF, Dbpedia
    Hoping to share some demos soon
  • In the end
    Have already accomplished our intellectual mission by getting the conversation started
    Now what remains to be seen if we can really take off – with the help of the community
