Libraries, archives and museums are facing up to the challenge of providing access to fast growing collections while managing constrained budgets. Key to this is the creation, linking, and publishing of good quality metadata, which allows library collections to be discovered, accessed and disseminated in a sustainable manner.  In this handbook, metadata experts van Hooland and Verborgh introduce the core concepts of metadata standards and Linked Data, and show how they can be applied to existing metadata. Giving readers the tools and understanding to achieve maximum results with limited resources, this book covers such crucial topics as

  • The value of metadata
  • Metadata creation, including architecture, data models, and standards
  • Metadata cleaning
  • Metadata reconciliation
  • Metadata enrichment through Linked Data and named-entity recognition
  • Importing and exporting metadata
  • Ensuring a sustainable publishing model
This handbook delivers the necessary conceptual and practical understanding to empower institutions to make the right decisions when making their resources accessible on the Web.

Review:

"...an important addition to the library science canon. Many important concepts to understanding linked data are covered within and it will open your eyes to the possible challenges ahead with sharing your own data. Even if you never work on the applications or project to share data, as a data creator, it is good to keep these problems and concepts in mind as you catalog and create vocabularies." -- Online Audiovisual Catalogers "...this book chooses a natural flow for starting to understand how linked data applies to the work of cultural institutions and the many ways their work and collections fit on the Internet. It goes beyond technical details to provide a broader historical context for linked data and its uses in libraries, archives, and museums...as a primer for understanding the wider-picture of how all these pieces sit together, it is a great resource. This book would be very suitable as a core text and jump off point in a class on linked data. Or, for that matter, as an open data course with linked data as a focal point, as I do feel it is generalized enough to be somewhat useful for those interested in enriching and linking data sets outside of a LAM setting. Finally, it is of course a good resource for working professionals who want a manageable starting point for figuring out what linked data is and how they can start incorporating it into their workflows and day-to-day efforts." --Open Language Archives Community

"Van Hooland and Verborgh provide an accessible and useful road map for making intelligent decisions about how to best create and publish linked data for cultural heritage collections." --metaware.buzz

"A comprehensive primer on linked data concepts that can easily be used as either a linked data textbook for library and information science educators or a linked data handbook for library, archive, and museum technical services ... definitely a book that LIS educators and library technical services and information technology professionals should put on their short list for this year's professional reading purchases." --Technicalities
