Use Case Notes

strike-through indicate items for which we got relevant cases (Antoine)

  1. Enrich a record, for example the Swedish Union Catalogue - (point to dbpedia), or Ghent University Academic Bibliography
  2. Linking to authority data for example German National Library, VIAF or LCSH. Jeff Young
  3. Bibliographic Networks, use Linked Data to reflect the relationships across the FRBR entities. Link editions, translations, media formats. Link people to all of their works. So discovery is better, delivery is better,....--Tod Matola 12:06, 3 August 2010 (UTC)
  4. Link Social Bibliography to a Bibliographic Network. Link reviews, tags, lists, cover art to a work. This seems like a variation on the enrich a record use case.
  5. Publish a Thesaurus/Vocabulary on the Web, e.g. STW Thesaurus for Economics, using SKOS and RDFa, with an additional, SPARQL-based terminology web service (a W3C use case study exists and could be updated)
  6. Find stuff in several collections.Searching a specific set of library and non-library collections--for instance to find a given book or DVD, or get access to an article. I'm thinking about this first as a local area search with a specific set of libraries--but then also as a 'travel' awareness search (for the harder-to-find things I'm willing to go out of my way to find, while travelling). I'd love, for instance, a mashup between TripIt/Dopplr, my calendar of availability, and my LibraryThing wishlist -- alerting me to possibilities to use items I can't get locally when I have a free day out-of-town. Jodi Schneider 13:48, 30 June 2010 (UTC) It seems that we don't have any such far-stretching case. Or this item rather calling for enabling mesh-ups, not doing them? (Antoine)
  7. Citations : how to express curated lists of works, as in bibliographies and reading lists, and ,how to express the state of scholarly knowledge or debate about works and the relationships between them.(From
  8. Find e-books see
  9. Fix subject headings see
  10. Compare subject headings from different sources (e.g. LCSH and NYT SH
  11. BibOnto specification group might be another place to look for ideas Looking at the mailing list, it will be very difficult to give ourselves the task to investigate this. We should count on informal contacts (e.g. with Mike Bergman) to push the the XG relevant cases. (Antoine)
  12. "Linked Open Copac Archives Hub" (LOCAH) - finding aids as linked data
  13. UDC in linked data
  14. archives and linked data, knitting together multiple identifiers
  15. open source, open catalog, RDF support, versioning, FRBR-like domain model
  16. Precision and quality assessment of library data : library metadata is created in standards-based library systems, which are expressly required to enforce the standards, and which will only accept data that meets the standards. Data sharing initiatives among libraries necessitate that practices must be as uniform as possible across a wide number of institutions. The maximal ontological commitment is essential. It is also necessary to strongly control the consistency of data when it is created -- e.g., with application profiles, using criteria that can form the basis of syntactic validation, quality control, and consistency checks (+ training of the catalogers in the proper application of the conceptual system).
