Linked Data and bibliographic data: what are the use cases?

Posted by
|

In the current LODLAM landscape, most of the published datasets are metadata describing digital objects. Europeana for instance only publish metada for digital objects. However the report on the digitisation status of cultural heritage in Europe  [1] shows that only 10% of our cultural heritage is current digitised.  The question is should we also spend efforts trying to publish bibliographic data without digital objects as LOD? The European Library [2] for instance has released last year one of the largest library open dataset. However the uses cases and benefits of bringing bibliographic data together are still not clearly defined? How bibliographic data can complement the other datasets? What information is useful?

Let’s discuss it together!
