LODE-BD Recommendations 2.0
How to select appropriate encoding strategies for producing
Linked Open Data (LOD)-enabled bibliographic data
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.
