t. johnson proposal
This talk will present work we have done on a web services approach to an API for traditional library transactional data, including example applications.
== Taking your Catalog from MARC to Linked Data in 20 Minutes ==
* Tom Johnson, Oregon State University Libraries,
Linked Library Data activity over the last year has seen bibliographic
data sets and vocabularies proliferating from traditional library
sources. We've reached a point where regular libraries don't have to
go it alone to be on the Semantic Web--there's a quickly growing pool
of things we can actually *link to*. Everyday libraries can see their
existing data enriched by participating.
This is quick and dirty road to getting your catalog onto the Linked
Data web. The talk take you from start to finish, using Free Software
tools to establish a namespace, put up a SPARQL endpoint, make a data
model, converting MARC records to RDF, and link them up to major
existing data sets (skipping conveniently over pesky processing time).
A small amount of "why linked data?" content will be covered, but
the primary goal is to leave you able to reproduce the process and
start linking your catalog into the web of data. Appropriate
documentation will be on the web.
