Linked data implementers invited to participate in online survey by 31 July

 

OCLC Research is conducting a survey to learn details of specific projects or services that format metadata as linked data and/or make subsequent uses of it. OCLC Research Library Partners Metadata Managers Focus Group members are aware that many in the libraries/archives/museum community are excited by the potential of linked data applications to make new, valuable uses of existing metadata.

If you or a colleague have implemented or are implementing linked data projects or services by publishing data as linked data or by ingesting linked data resources into your own data or applications, please take the survey at https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/LinkedDataSurvey by 31 July 2014.

The expected time to complete the survey is 15-20 minutes for each project described. Feel free to share the link to the survey with others.

Examples collected will be shared for the benefit of others wanting to undertake similar efforts, wondering what is possible to do and how to go about it. Participating institutions will be identified with the projects described, but contact information will be held confidential. Responses to this survey will be valuable to others who are also interested in starting Linked Data projects.

See the hangingtogether.org blog post, So who is using linked data? And for what? for more information or contact Program Officer Karen Smith-Yoshimura with questions.
