Making a library catalogue part of the semantic web

Posted by bronwynr on February 24, 2009


Library  catalogues  contain an  enormous  amount  of  structured,  high-quality  data,  however,  this
data  is generally not made available to semantic web  applications. In this paper we describe the
tools and  techniques used  to make the Swedish Union Catalogue (LIBRIS) part  of the Semantic
Web  and Linked Data. The focus  is on links  to and between resources and  the mechanisms used
to make data available, rather than perfect  description of the individual resources. We also present
a method of creating links between records of the same work.
