Linked Open Vocabularies. Europeana Professional - Home. AthenaPlus. Access to cultural heritage networks for Europeana AthenaPlus is a CIP best practice network started in March 2013 and ending in August 2015. The consortium is composed by 40 partners from 21 Member States. AthenaPlus will build on the successful experience developed by the previous ATHENA project – where LIDO and MINT, the Ingestion Server and Mapping Tool, widely used across the Europeana's ecosystem of projects, were developed - in order to further advance the effective infrastructure and tools to support museums and other cultural institutions in making available digital content through Europeana. AthenaPlus is in a strategic position to address this challenge, due to: its high institutional value (hundreds of European institutions are involved or associated with the project); the large amount of content made available to Europeana; the powerful services for institutions to be created by the project;

Within a specific project, MIMO brought together digital collections of musical instruments and has created a single online access point to them within Europeana. MIMO delivered 43,234 records represented in EDM to Europeana. Dewey Decimal Classification / Linked Data. Dewey Web Services. For a long time, the Dewey team at OCLC has wanted to do something with Linked Data.

Dewey Web Services

That is, apply Linked Data principles to parts of the Dewey Decimal Classification and present the data as a small “terminology service.” The service should respond to regular HTTP requests with either a machine- or a human-readable presentation of Dewey classes. There should be a URI (and, even better, a Web page that delivers a useful description) for every Dewey concept, not just single classes. The data should be presented in a format that is capable of handling rich semantic information and in a way that allows users or user agents to just “follow their nose” to explore the data.

For more complex stuff, the service should offer an API-like query access. Along comes Tim Berners-Lee's new-ish Linked Data meme “Raw Data Now!” For now, the latter approach seemed a more effective driving force that prompted us to confront several different issues that are relevant for either one. FAST Dataset Download. On this page you can download the most current FAST (Faceted Application of Subject Terminology) dataset.

You can read about the activity here, access the FAST data through a search interface at or access FAST as Linked Data at FAST is an enumerative, faceted subject heading schema derived from the Library of Congress Subject Headings (LCSH). The purpose of adapting the LCSH with a simplified syntax to create FAST is to retain the very rich vocabulary of LCSH while making the schema easier to understand, control, apply, and use. The schema maintains upward compatibility with LCSH, and any valid set of LC subject headings can be converted to FAST headings.

Get Yourself a Linked Data Piece of WorldCat to Play With

Those of you who attended the OCLC Linked Data Round Table at IFLA 2012 in Helsinki yesterday, will know that I got my own back on the folks who publish the press releases at OCLC, by announcing the next WorldCat step along the Linked Data road whilst they were still in bed. The Round Table was an excellent very interactive session with Neil Wilson from the British Library, Emmanuelle Bermes from Centre Pompidou, and Martin Malmsten of the Nation Library of Sweden, which I will cover elsewhere.
