Linked data and libraries: a blossoming romance? : Digital ...

Over the last couple of weeks 3 very interesting reports have drifted through my news feeds on libraries and linked data:

 

The library of congress has announced plans for pursuing a replacement for MARC and these plans “will be focused on the Web environment, Linked Data principles and mechanisms, and the Resource Description Framework (RDF) as a basic data model”.

 

The W3C library linked data incubator group released their report. This report recommends that librarians experiment more with linked data by releasing data, building on top of linked data sets, engaging with standards bodies and bring their preservation skills to bear on datasets and vocabularies.

 

A CLIR report has been published on a linked data workshop and survey run by Stanford. The purpose of the workshop was to discuss the “the prospects for a large scale, multi-national, multi-institutional prototype of a Linked Data environment for discovery of and navigation among the rapidly, chaotically expanding array of academic information resources.” The report itself is useful for everyone as it contains sections on the value of a linked data approach for library content and talks about potential killer apps linked data could support.

Linked Data for Libraries, Museums, and Archives: Survey and Workshop Report

Linked Data for Libraries, Museums, and Archives: Survey and Workshop Report | The Information Professional | Scoop.it

In June 2011 Stanford University hosted a group of librarians and technologists to examine issues and challenges surrounding the use of linked data for library applications.

 This report summarizes the activities and discussions that took place during the workshop, describes what came out of the workshop, outlines next steps identified by the participants, and provides contextual and background information, including preliminary reports and biographies of workshop participants. The workshop report was produced and edited by the participants and staff at Stanford University Libraries.
