→JeromeDL - an open source social semantic digital library
* Jodi Schneider, DERI NUI Galway, firstname.lastname@example.org
JeromeDL is an e-library with semantics. A fully functional digital library, JeromeDL uses linked data: using standard "Web3.0" vocabularies such as SIOC, FOAF, and WordNet, JeromeDL publishes RDF descriptions of the e-library contents. Jerome DL uses FOAF to manage users--meaning that access privileges can be naturally assigned to a social network, in addition to individuals or all WWW users. Users can also share annotations, promoting collaborative browsing and collaborative filtering. To encourage users to provide meaningful annotations (beyond just tags), JeromeDL uses a WordNet-based vocabulary service. The system also leverages full-text indexing with Lucene and allows filtering with the SIMILE project's Exhibit. In short, JeromeDL is a social semantic digital library--allowing users to collect, publish, and share their library with their social network on the semantic web.
