Description

CONTENTdm is a digital asset management service from OCLC. Working closely with product and technology colleagues, OCLC Research has partnered with three CONTENTdm institutions to investigate how to convert current CONTENTdm metadata into linked structured data, manage that data, create new data, and leverage the structed data to improve the end-user experience of CONTENTdm. The project is divided into three phases. The first phase focuses on converting CONTENTdm data into structured linked data. In the second phase we will investigate how to use the new data in the existing CONTENTdm application. Finally, the third phase will involve developing data pipelines and services to more efficiently convert and create structured linked data for CONTENTdm. Wikibase, the platform used to support WikiData, was selected for this project because it provides a large number of services and features that are critical to this work. It also has a large and engaged community of support. This talk with discuss the framework for the project, provide a technical overview of the data and services, and share participant feedback from the first phase of project.
