Modelling Library Linked Data in Practice

Prongué, Nicolas ; Schneider, René

In this paper we present reflections and recommendations concerning the
conversion of library metadata into Linked Data. We will briefly describe the
different data models that exist for this purpose and argue their strengths and
weaknesses with a special focus on the entification issue, before illustrating
this problem with the description of three different ongoing projects. As will
be outlined afterwards, it is essential to distinguish at the start of a project
between data-driven or user-driven design approaches. As an alternative, the
realization of a Linked Data project for bibliographical data might also lead
to a hybrid approach were the design process shifts reciprocally between the
analysis of the data and the user needs.
