    Cambridge University Library delivers linked open data and enrichments

    Case Study: Cambridge University Library delivers linked open data and enrichments

    In the lead-up to the RLUK Linked Open Data (LOD) Hackathon on Wednesday 14th May in London, The European Library is running an awareness campaign to promote LOD innovations in libraries across Europe. This case study is one of a series that highlights achievements of pioneering libraries to date in this exciting area.

    The Cambridge Open Metadata (COMET) Project was funded by the JISC Infrastructure for Resource Discovery Programme over a six-month period in 2011. COMET aimed to improve the visibility of Cambridge University Library's collections - which include Darwin's correspondence and Newton's manuscripts - by adopting a Linked Data approach. In partnership with OCLC, it also explored the value of linked data in catalogue enrichment.

    Linked Science.  Interconnecting scientific assets

    Varias universidades europeas están trabajando en el ámbito de linked data para sus publicaciones y servicios científicos. El objetivo principal es compartir los datos sobre investigación para construir una gran biblioteca universitaria sobre ciencia, interconectada sobre la base de los datos. De esta manera se acelera el aprendizaje al poder acceder a datos de fuentes diversas.

    Linked Data for eScience Services (LIFE) is a two-year project funded by the German Research Foundation, jointly carried out by the Semantic Interoperability Lab (MUSIL) at Institute for Geoinformatics (http://ifgi.uni-muenster.de) and the University Library (http://ulb.uni-muenster.de) at University of Münster.

    The overall goal of LIFE is to facilitate sharing of research data and thus improve interdisciplinary collaboration in science and education. The approach addresses all kinds of resources, ranging from articles and books through maps to raw data. The Linked Data approach will be used as a basis for the university library’s eScience services to seamlessly integrate their offerings into both the scientific and the global information infrastructure.

    These eScience services will enable researchers and students to systematically navigate the dynamic and heterogeneous global network of research data, exploiting spatio-temporal information for discovery and creating views meeting their information needs. LIFE is a research activity in the Linked Open Data University of Münster (LODUM, http://lodum.de) initiative that fosters exchanging scientific and educational data as Linked Data.
