The Open Metadata Pathfinder project will deliver a robustly validated demonstrator of the effectiveness of opening up archival catalogues to widened automated linking and discovery through embedding RDFa metadata in Archives in the M25 area (AIM25) collection level catalogue descriptions. It will also implement as part of the AIM25 system the automated publishing of the system's high quality authority metadata as open datasets. The project will include an assessment of the effectiveness of automated semantic data extraction through natural language processing tools (using GATE) and measure the effectiveness of the approach through statistical analysis and review by key stakeholders (users and archivists). All outputs of the project will be integrated into AIM25 resources and workflows, ensuring the sustainability of the benefits to the community.
The digital literary and linguistic resources in the Oxford Text Archive and in the British National Corpus have been available to researchers throughout the world for several decades. Technical enhancements to the resource discovery infrastructure will allow wider dissemination of open metadata, will facilitate interaction with research infrastructures, and the knowledge and expertise achieved will be shared with the community.
lobid-resources is a service which offers access to metadata about bibliographic resources (books, articles, pdfs etc.). Since the data has been released under a CC0-licence - making it Linked Open Data and thus contrasting the Linked Data released by other libraries - any interested party may download a complete dump of that linked data . The data is based on the latest exports released by the hbz in the form of RDF/ISO2709.
The data can be queried via a SPARQL-Endpoint.
OAPEN is a project in Open Access publishing for humanities and social sciences monographs. The consortium of University-based academic publishers who make up OAPEN believe that the time is ripe to bring the successes of scientific Open Access publishing to the humanities and social sciences.
„Die Einsatzmöglichkeiten aktueller Informations- und Kommunikations-technologien in Studium und Lehre an der Fakultät durch Bündelung und Kommunikation ins Bewusstsein der Lehrenden und Lernenden zu rufen und dadurch einen selbstverständlichen Umgang mit diesen Technologien zu befördern“ – so lautet, knapp formuliert, das Ziel des Hochschul-entwicklungsprojekts ePUSH.
