Synopsis

Linked data is now essential for sharing collections on the open web. Linked Data for Cultural Heritage gathers a stellar list of contributors to help readers understand linked data concepts by examining practice and projects based in libraries, archives, and museums.



Linked open data remains very much a work in progress, and much of the progress has taken place within the domain of the cultural heritage institutions: libraries, archives, and museums. There is no question that the structure of linked data, and the machine inferencing it supports, shows great promise for discoverability. What will be the `killer app' that breaks linked open data out to the wider world and accelerates its uptake? Perhaps it will be a project described in this volume.



Content covered includes:



- a very simple description of linked data, summing up its promises and challenges

- a survey of the use of linked data in significant projects across the cultural heritage domain, including Europeana and the Digital Public Library of America (DPLA)

- practical discussion of migrating a catalogue from a MARC environment to one of linked data and the possibilities that open up in terms of the broader scholarly community

- reviewing and reimagining library thesauri, metadata schemas, and information discovery, to look at how controlled vocabularies integrate library practice with linked data

- an examination of the role of authority control, identifiers and vocabularies, including use of the Web Ontology Language (OWL) and the SPARQL query language

- Carol Jean Godby describes OCLC's experiments with Schema.org as the foundation for a model of library resource description expressed as linked data

- the development of the Bibliographic Framework Initiative (BIBFRAME) data model and a description of the fundamental differences between MARC and BIBFRAME.



This survey of the cultural heritage linked data landscape will be a key resource for metadata practitioners and researchers within all cultural heritage contexts and all students and academics within the information science and digital humanities fields.
