The Core Linked Data Interest Group provides a forum for discussing library data's expanding role in the Semantic Web and a showcase for linked library data initiatives. For Core Interest Group Week, we are pleased to present updates on linked data initiatives from two national institutions.
Linked Data Initiatives at the National Library of the Netherlands | René Voorburg, Linked Data Officer, National Library of the Netherlands
The National Library of the Netherlands provides access to a growing number of RDF resources through the LodView linked data portal at http://data.bibliotheken.nl/. This presentation will provide an introduction to current work, including discussion of publishing bibliographic entity descriptions using elements from the schema.org vocabulary, and possible directions for future work, such as investigation into the RDF implementations of Resource Description and Access (RDA) and the Library Reference Model (LRM).
Library of Congress Linked Data Service APIs Explained | Nate Trail, Digital Project Coordinator, Library of Congress
ID.LOC.GOV-also known as the Library of Congress's (LOC) Linked Data Service-is well-known as a point of access for Library of Congress authority and bibliographic data published as linked data (LD). Each resource is modelled in RDF, linked to other resources published by the LOC and resources in external systems such as Wikidata and VIAF, and provided in a variety of LD formats.
This presentation will focus on the services-APIs-LOC provides to facilitate greater access to and use of the data. The Suggest Service, Label Service, and Update Feed Service, among others, will be described, including information about how to use them.
