Cornell will produce descriptions natively in RDF for hundreds of uncataloged noncommercial LPs in its Hip Hop collection. This collection supports a growing body of international scholars and educators who study Hip Hop not only for its global influence on popular music, art and style, but also for its role in articulating social and political issues. As such, it offers a promising test bed for exploring the use of linked data techniques to extend the reach of descriptive metadata. This work will complement Stanford's LD4P work, in association with the Music Library Association (MLA) and other partners, to develop a Performed Music Ontology based on BIBFRAME.
