We have just extended the submission deadline for Semantic Web in Libraries conference 2022 until 11 July 2022. So there's still some time to hand in your submission (if you haven't already). swib.org/swib22/. #swib22

Im Sommer 2012 hat OCLC ja auch mal die ODC-BY-Lizenzierung von WorldCat.org Linked Data in Kombination mit Community Guidelines verkündet. Die Seite mit den Linzenzierungsangaben und Attribuierungsanforderungen wurde interesanterweise – laut Internet Archive – irgendwann zwischen dem 2021-08-16 and 2021-11-06 vom Netz genommen: web.archive.org/web/2021081610

Mein vorläufiges Fazit: OCLC scheint mir ganz konsequent zu handeln, indem sie immer noch alles daran setzen, ihren Hauptasset WorldCat weiterhin exklusiv verwerten zu können. Um dies zu erreichen, wird nun halt (mal wieder?) ein Konkurrent verklagt, während bisher die eigenen Kunden/Mitgliedsbibliotheken unter Druck gesetzt wurden.

For people who are interested in web standards, open source software and libraries/archives there's a good lineup of talks at the virtual SWiB conference next week:


I'm planning to tune into parts of it. I want to lean more about Linked Data Notifications, Oxford Common File Layout, JSKOS and how their conference "virtual booth" works out (basically small demos running in parallel on Day 4).

Some background info on the Library of the University of Amsterdam open and linked data project purl.org/cpl/3227

Two weeks before I leave the Library of the University of Amsterdam I proudly present the first results of our data publication project: open data website uba.uva.nl/opendata and @TriplyDB linked data portal lod.uba.uva.nl/ (see official announcement uba.uva.nl/en/content/news/202)
