LODE-BD Recommendations 2.0
From the post:
LODE-BD aims to support the selection of appropriate encoding strategies for producing meaningful Linked Open Data (LOD)-enabled bibliographical data (directly or indirectly). The LODE-BD recommendations are applicable for structured data describing bibliographic resources such as articles, monographs, theses, conference papers, presentation materials, research reports, learning objects, etc. – in print or electronic format.
The core component of LODE-BD contains a set of recommended decision trees for common properties used in describing a bibliographic resource instance. Each decision tree is delivered with various acting points and the matching encoding suggestions. The full range of options presented by LODE-BD will enable data providers to make their choices according to their development stages, internal data structures, and the reality of their practices.
What's new in LODE-BD 2.0
- Background information and references are moved into appendixes.
- Metadata terms recommended by LODE-BD 2.0 are not limited to subject-specific domains. Agricultural-related namespaces and vocabularies are removed from the 2.0 version. LODE-BD now are appropriate for use by any data providers and repositories.
- A road-map is added to guide the navigation of LODE-BD sections.
- A crosswalk is added which maps the metadata terms used in the LODE-BD 2.0 with schema.org properties. It is attached as Appendix 4.
The post also breaks down the report into individual sections.
Of particular interest will be:
As with most crosswalks, the mapping does not enumerate the properties that compelled the crosswalk author to make the connections they did.
It it had, it would be easier to maintain and to merge with other crosswalks.
