Abstract

For the past few years, librarians have heard how Linked Data will be the future of bibliographic data. Linked Data for Libraries, Archives, and Museums: How to Clean, Link and Publish Your Metadata tries to make sense of the hype. The goal of this book is to introduce “the process of making your collections available, from the arduous processes of cleaning and connecting to publishing it for the world” (xiv). Specifically, this book describes metadata standards including Linked Data, associated tools and technologies, and the sustainability of metadata and technologies. The authors critically evaluate various options that can be used to clean, enrich, and publish metadata along with the history, advantages, and disadvantages of each.
