Linked swissbib - swissbib The project linked.swissbib.ch aims to integrate the metacatalog swissbib into the semantic web, with the creation of a Linked Data service. This implies the transformation of the metadata of swissbib into a semantic format based on the RDF model (Resource Description Framework). The data will be linked with other datasets on the web. An application exploiting the added value of the new semantic structure will be developed and integrated to the basic services of swissbib. Through this web-compatible format, the data will have a better interoperability and present more flexible possibilities for reuse.
