Creating linked descriptive data for CONTENTdm

OCLC is in the midst of a pilot project to study how to shift CONTENTdm to a linked data environment. Learn about the technical approaches considered when designing the prototype and see a demonstration of the prototype linked data cataloging interface.

OCLC's CONTENTdm system is used to describe and manage information about digitized materials, and OCLC is in the middle of a pilot project to study how to shift CONTENTdm to a linked data environment. The study has prototyped a new cataloging interface that guides catalogers towards creating rich and high-quality linked data descriptions.

This presentation will provide background on the pilot project, discuss the technical approaches considered when designing the prototype, and demonstrate the prototype linked data cataloging interface.
