  • The practical application of SW principles – Linked Data
  • Warning I’m getting technical for a couple of slides
  • Linked data means…
  • Brief intro to RDF Triples
  • Tim’s principles - explain
  • You can come out from behind the sofa now!
  • The growth of LD – Linked Open Data Cloud
  • Back to Academia – silos of practice/info within & between institutions & libraries & publishers
  • All interlinked – irony moment!
  • Well publish your metadata – don’t hide it Use standard identifiers
  • Aspire shopping based on DOI & CrossRef hosted metadata
  • ID scraped but Metadata looked up from Crossref
  • Consistent representation across lists/courses/lecturers/institutions
  • Enriched reliable display to student
  • Same for books from cat
  • What else can publisher do to help consumption of their material

    8. Web 3.0 / Semantic Web Linked Data
    9. Technical bit ahead! WARNING
    10. Linked Data <ul><li>URIs – a generic means to identify entities or concepts in the world </li></ul><ul><li>HTTP – a simple yet universal mechanism for retrieving resources, or descriptions of resources </li></ul><ul><li>RDF – a generic graph-based data model with which to structure and link data that describes things in the world </li></ul><ul><li>SPARQL – RDF query language </li></ul>http://www.flickr.com/photos/hryckowian /
    11. RDF Resource Description Framework Triples Subject --- Predicate ---> Object ALPSP --- Held at ---> BIR ALPSP --- web site ---> alpsp.org Triple Store SPARQL Query Language
    12. Linked Data <ul><li>Use URIs as names for things </li></ul><ul><li>Use HTTP URIs so people can look up those names </li></ul><ul><li>When someone looks up a URI, provide useful information, using standards (RDF, SPARQL) </li></ul><ul><li>Include links to other URIs. So they can discover more things. </li></ul>http://www.flickr.com/photos/hryckowian / Principles Tim Berners-Lee
