Linking Library Data for Quality Improvement and Data Enrichment

Uldis Bojārs, Artūrs Žogla, Elita Eglīte

Abstract

Dataset interlinking holds the potential for data quality improvement and data enrichment as demonstrated by the Linked Open Data project. This paper explores the library domain characterized by carefully curated datasets that require high quality standards. It presents the results of an experiment in dataset quality improvement and data enrichment conducted by linking library datasets and analysing the results. The experiment was performed using subject authority files from the National Library of Latvia and the Library of Congress. The paper concludes by discussing how Linked Data can be used for data enrichment.
