One thought on “LOD in the library world

  1. Laura Smart

    Ockerbloom at U. Penn has Open Book, which makes use of library linked data from id.loc.gov. See http://onlinebooks.library.upenn.edu/

    He is downloading LCSH/SKOS and keeping a local cache. He uses lexical processing techniques to massage the data for display on the Online Books page, drawing related title terms from related concepts (inferring relationships not explicitly included in the SKOS). He’s been mashing up Hathi Trust metadata with the id.loc.gov LCSH to get information for the inferences.
