These use cases are work in progress...

The work of LD4L is heavily informed by use cases. If Linked Data is going to be "fit for purpose" and deliver value in a library context, its essential to know the users, uses and hoped for benefits for leveraging linked data. 

Building on and distilled from the preliminary use cases and a revised subset , this page represents a further refined set of use cases to guide the ontology and engineering work for the project. The use cases divide into six "clusters" reflecting the data available to research institutions and libraries, and the core LD4L mission of leveraging the intellectual input of librarians, domain experts and scholars as they produce, curate and use scholarly information resources.
