 LD4L Workshop, Tuesday February 24, 2015

facilitator: Simeon Warner

Table 1

  • Catalogers should curate relationships, identify things
  • People want to collect, exhibit, share -- academic & personal
  • How can we collect these re-uses?
  • Collection/exhibit as 1st class onject -- discoverable, private/public
  • Automated analysis of images, crowdsourced and expert annotation
  • Rating based on source
  • Enable feedback/correction - probability
  • "Curate the crowds" - be able to ask right people for help => "niche sourceing"
  • Models for enchanging data - happens in many places
  • Referrer data / "in links", finding commentary, social media refs, related items off-site
  • Building community around items / collections
  • Museum sharing via Wikipedia, "like" buttons, "outsourcing curation"

Table 2

  • Business analytics - understand branch libraries and storage facilities
  • Annotation as a proxy for usage
  • Zotero with resources
  • Combine digital and physical items and various spaces
  • Crowdsourcing description/transcription/...
  • good for genre? because defined by community
  • confidence data / probablities, fuzzy boundaries
  • LOD+RDF must deal with fuzzy - how to query?
  • "truthiness"
  • Works with 100's instances - "best instances"? ranking in context
  • Library Things, Good Reads - APIs / data ?
  • Large Scale / MOOC ?
  • Many lists, many places, many readers, community? re-use
  • computed collections / dynamic lists
  • Trends, emergent collections, predicting

Table 3

  • Virtual collections, research lists
  • Thematic community collections, guidance, boundaires, cross institutional
  • How to discover silos? Data hub, e.g. DJ sharing via brandio(?)
  • Ranking value of links - user vs. professional
  • Tools for user to link back
  • Links -> easy cross institutional collections, requires stable URIs
  • Centralized list service, convenient data export for reuse
  • User lists, RSS feed
  • Granularity - title, page, para -> annotations
  • Graph visualization and editing - understand environment, ratings
  • Entry points/goals - search/re-use
  • Historical role of gatekeepers - what happens when dis-intermediated?

Table 4

  • Annotation
  • Events around objects - everything is an event?
  • Scholars taking part with librarians
  • Provenance of annotation/selection
  • Use of faculty selections across institutions - reputations / critical mass
  • Use in exhibits, institutional sharing
  • Curation of items in different systems 
  • Set of works to find instances & similar items in different systems
  • Classes of user - faculty vs. student
  • Location of annoation / notification
  • Interop with other systems - Zotero, etc.
  • Surfacing of policies


  • No labels
