From Prototype to Production: Turning Good Ideas into Useful Library Services

From Prototype to Production: Turning Good Ideas into Useful Library Services

By Andrew K. Pace and Holly Tomren

CNI Fall 2018 Membership Meeting
Washington, DC (USA)

This session explores two projects at different points of the prototype-to-production workflow: IIIF (integration of the International Image Interoperability Framework) into a digital discovery environment; and a Linked Data Wikibase prototype (reconciliation tool and editor built to match library metadata workflows) transitioning to production. Temple University presents from the experimenter and practitioner point of view.

Lessons Learned from a Linked Data Prototype for Managing Bibliographic Data (video)

Lessons Learned from a Linked Data Prototype for Managing Bibliographic Data (video)

By Bruce Washburn, Stephen Hearn, Marc McGeem, John Chapman

Several research libraries have joined with OCLC in a joint research project prototyping a new suite of linked data services. In this webinar, learn about this unique project uses the out-of-the-box services from Wikibase and a high-quality set of name entities available from FAST, VIAF, and Wikidata.

Using Wikibase to Manage Linked Data for Digital Collection

By Jeff Mixter, Bruce Washburn, Jean Godby

CONTENTdm Users Group Meeting
Columbus, OH (USA) D

OCLC is working with several member institutions on an experimental project to evaluate Wikibase as part of a new linked data ecosystem. This presentation given by Jean Godby summarizes the work in progress, provides demonstrations of a pilot system, and offers a discussion of the implications with those managing digital collections.

Prototyping a Linked Data Platform for Production Cataloging Workflows

By Bruce Washburn and Carl Stahmer

LD4 Workshop
Palo Alto, California (USA)

UC-Davis is one of three institutions piloting a new suite of linked data services using out-of-the-box services from Wikibase and entities available from FAST, VIAF, and Wikidata.
