Linked Open Data Enabled Bibliographical Data (LODE-BD) 3.0

Authors: Marcia Zeng, Imma Subirats

The Linked Open Data Enabled Bibliographical Data (LODE-BD) practical guide aims to support the selection of appropriate encoding strategies for producing meaningful LOD-BD (directly or indirectly). The latest version (3.0) of the LODE-BD provides recommendations applicable for structured data, describing bibliographic resources and research datasets. The core component of LODE-BD contains a set of recommended decision trees for common properties used in describing a resource instance, enabling data providers to make choices according to their development stages, internal data structures, and the reality of their practices.

Mapping BIBFRAME with RDA for Representative Expression of LRM

Authors: Mihwa Lee

Library Reference Model (LRM) as a new conceptual model for constructing linked data in library has impact on RDA as content rules and BIBFRAME as encoding format. Among LRM attributes (or properties), especially, representative expression is a new one. RDA has expanded the attributes to reflect representative expression of LRM, BIBFRAME should also accept the RDA elements for representative expression because BIBFRAME should reflect RDA attributes as encoding format. This poster is to propose the BIBFRAME mapping with RDA representative expression.

Research on the construction and application of the semantic-based ontology model for biographical data

Authors: Liu Yao, Li Si

Biography, a historical genre dating back to antiquity, is a scholarly resource in history and prosopography(Shimizu et al., 2020). It records the lives of individuals and serves as a witness to social customs and historical scenes. However, most biographies follow the traditional form of non-structured text and cannot reveal the semantic features of biographers(Hyvönen et al., 2019), which has hindered information mining and retrieval. Semantic Web technologies provide a solution through deep semantic descriptions. However, few studies explore the semantic modeling of biography. Given this, we constructed a biographical ontology based on existing ontology and terms extracted from an autobiography. On this basis, semantic applications, such as semantic retrieval, annotation, and reasoning, can be explored.

Improvement of metadata interoperability for promoting distribution and utilization of Japanese digital cultural resources

Authors: Daichi Machiya, Michiko Takahashi, Yuka Koguchi

The National Diet Library, Japan (NDL) has contributed to promoting utilization of Japanese digital cultural resources by operating Japan Search, the national metadata platform of Japanese digital content in various fields. While Japan Search accepts metadata regardless of schema to minimize the workload of data providers and enable rapid expansion of searchable databases, it is necessary to improve metadata interoperability to enable efficient utilization of resources. This presentation covers practices to improve metadata interoperability such as an initiative in the community providing metadata to Japan Search and improvement of RDF provided by Japan Search.
