libhub v0.01


In the summer of 2015, Zepheira will introduce the Libhub Network, a Web-based data network designed to surface and connect libraries and their resources in a visible and actionable fashion. In the Network, each library will have their own set of data optimized for linking across the library resources, across other organizations with shared assets, and within the context of the broader Web to ensure that library content weaves into the Web in a usable and connected fashion.

Tonight we published an early sneak peek of a small example of The Linkable Molly Brown online, and her papers at Denver Public Library (sitemap). This pipeline utilizes our opensource tools to take in MARC records, materializes them into Bibframe Resources and contextually links these resources together. This data is published to the Web using and Bibframe vocabularies marked up in RDFa.

While there is still a lot of work to do (this is only the beginning 😉 ), this marks an important milestone toward making libraries visible on the web.
