Semantic Web (Berners-Lee)

Structured

collections

Sets of inference rules

Automated reasoning

Web of linked data

Web of linked documents

Web of linked computing devices


Resource Description Framework (RDF)

“This work has author Gordon Dunsire”

Triple!

Subject – Predicate - Object

ex:1Bd38

?

Subject

“This work”

Predicate

“has author”

ex:ZX3G5

Object

“Gordon Dunsire”

“literal”

Uniform Resource Identifier (URI)

For humans


ex:“is derivative work of”

Data model meeting

British Library, London, 30 April – 1 May 2007

Members of RDA and Semantic Web communities

“… agreed that RDA and DCMI should work together …”

(Dublin Core Metadata Initiative)


Benefits expected
Benefits expected

  • The library community gets a metadata standard that is compatible with the Web Architecture and that is fully interoperable with other Semantic Web initiatives

  • The DCMI community gets a libraries application profile firmly based on the DCAM and FRBR (which will be a high profile exemplar for others to follow)

  • The Semantic Web community get a significant pool of well thought-out metadata terms to re-use

  • There is wider uptake of RDA


Activities
Activities

  • Development of an RDA Element Vocabulary

  • Development of an RDA DC Application Profile based on FRBR and FRAD

  • Disclosure of RDA Value Vocabularies using RDF/RDFS/SKOS


Opaque URI

(only for machines)

Compact URI = rdact:1010

To do
To do

  • Publish more RDA value vocabularies

  • Develop cross-entity elements

    • E.g. Work-Expression relationship designators

  • Develop Application Profile for RDA “core”

  • Develop RDF elements for aggregated statements (RDA, ISBD, MARC, …)

    • E.g. Place of publication -> Publication statement


Achievements 5 years on
Achievements: 5+ years on

  • Rich set of elements and value vocabularies for “bibliographic control”

    • At global, “universal” level

  • “a metadata standard that is compatible with the Web Architecture and that is fully interoperable with other Semantic Web initiatives”

  • “a significant pool of well thought-out metadata terms to re-use”

  • Wider uptake of RDA? …
