The role of LODE-BD for the long-term management of digital objects (DOs)

Read about the role of LODE-BD for the long-term management of digital objects (DOs) in the article “Preserving digital heritage: At the crossroads of Trust and Linked Open Data” (Iryna Solodovnik and Paolo Budroni, p.251) :

LODE-BD stands for (Linked Open Data enabled Bibliographical Data) and is a reference tool that provides assistance on how to decide on metadata modelling, encoding and implementation. It provides all necessary paths on how to create meaningful and comprehensive  bibliographic data (readable for both humans and web engines) and on how to share the data among different systems and with the LOD universe.

The articles explains how LODE-BD can be used to enable semantic interoperability of persistent identifiers of digital objects:
To ensure high levels of data sharing and long-term re-use of data, APARSEN recommends the developement of an Interoperable Framework for Persistent Identifiers, paving the way for a ‘Ring of Trusted Persistent Identifiers for Linked Open Data’. The framework’s ontology of this 'Ring' can be mapped to LODE-BD metadata. LODE-BD qualifies for this mapping because its nine metadata clusters are consistent with the corresponding work, expression, and manifestation concepts used in FRBR (Functional Requirements for Bibliographic Records). Moreover, being mapped to Dublin Core (simple and qualified) and to other metadata and schemes designed to support bibliographical data on the Web, LODE-BD metadata can be seen as one-size-fits-all approach for encoding meaningful LOD-ready bibliographical data concentrated on the data, not on the scheme.
