Full Text: Stanford Linked Data Workshop Technology Plan
The document was released on December 30, 2011.
From the Introduction of the Plan:
This is a plan for a multi-national, multi-institutional discovery environment built on Linked Open Data principles. If instantiated at several institutions, will demonstrate to end users the value of the Linked Data approach to recording machine operable facts about the products of teaching, learning, and research. The most noteworthy advantage of the Linked Open Data approach is that it allows the recorded facts , in turn, to become the basis for new discovery environments. This model includes the basic functions of generating, harvesting, and iteratively reconciling URIs as well as consumption of Linked Data.
This model was developed in conjunction with the Linked Data Workshop conducted at Stanford University 27 June through 1 July 2011, with support from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation’s Scholarly Communications Program, the Council on Library and Information Resources, and the Stanford University Libraries. In addition to the Workshop, a Literature Survey was produced to inform first the Workshop participants and then the research library community of “the practical aspects of understanding and applying Linked Data practices and technologies to the metadata and content of libraries, museums, and archives.”
