    1. 1. thinking open data lessons learnt from building anopen source ruby on rails metadata creation platform for special collections e.g. performing arts Dries Moreels, dries@bamart.be Tom Klaasen, @10to1
    2. 2. github.com/warburg/warburg• originally developed for Vlaams Theater Instituut in 2009-2010 by 10to1• now in use at Contredanse and interest at other european performing arts documentation centres• in action at data.vti.be• looking for developers & use cases
    3. 3. data.vti.be
    4. 4. data.vti.be
    5. 5. data.vti.be
    6. 6. data.vti.be
    7. 7. data.vti.be
    8. 8. data.vti.be
    9. 9. postpone standards• design a relational database around business logic ; narrow application of standards leads to inefficient databases• special collections treat documents as books or periodicals at times, as ephemera or as part of archival units when appropriate• same element makes sense in different standards: dcterms, mods, foaf ... repetition is a plus in linked open data
    10. 10. standardsare enforced here
    11. 11. URI bridges systems• if book copies get a uniquely identifying URI, • you can use any CRM or POS for patron & lending administration • vertical integration across vendors• if authors get a uniquely identifying URI, • aggregating e.g. physical books with articles in repository doesn’t require extra software
