LD4L 2014

Welcome to the Linked Data for Libraries original 2014-2016 grant.  The original LD4L grant was a collaboration between three institutions (Cornell University, Harvard University and Stanford University) with the support of a nearly $1 million grant from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.  The goal of the project was to create a Scholarly Resource Semantic Information Store (SRSIS) model that works both within individual institutions and through a coordinated, extensible network of Linked Open Data to capture the intellectual value that librarians and other domain experts and scholars add to information resources when they describe, annotate, organize, select, and use those resources, together with the social value evident from patterns of usage. Our intent was to do so using existing ontologies and Open Source technology.

The original grant, running from 2014-2016, has been completed.
