Accessing DDI 3 as Linked Data - Colectica RDF Services

Presenter 1
Dan Smith

Linked Data represents an opportunity to publish the structured data of DDI 3 and publish it in a way that can be interlinked to become even more useful. Linked data makes use of existing web technologies standardized by the W3C such as HTTP and URIs and extends them to enable the machine actionability of web information. The DDI 3 has a very robust information model containing many relationships between metadata items. This can be seen through the DDI 3's use of references to enable reuse. This DDI model can also be represented in RDF. This paper examines why serializing DDI as RDF can be beneficial, how DDI 3 can be represented in RDF, stored in a repository, and queried using the standard SPARQL query language. An example of these concepts is demonstrated using Colectica RDF Services.
