Title: Cobis Linked Open Data Portal
Team: Synapta (& Friends!)
The CoBiS Linked Open Data pilot project provides a unique point of access to the collections of seven of the 65 specialized libraries forming the CoBiS network. We merge cataloguing data from five different pieces of software, also linking to multimedia content. The interlinking focuses on Wikidata and VIAF, and the reference ontologies are BIBFRAME and Schema.org. During the implementation of the project, we developed and released as open source JARQL, an innovative triplification software (https://github.com/linked-solutions/jarql), and we developed OLAF (https://olaf.synapta.io/), a mix’n’match-style interface to crowdsource the interlinking of authority files.
