Keep it growing
Really, we can’t fix everything
For facts and for meaningDomain experts and enthusiasts know more than we doAnd have more resources to devote to understanding of specific resourcesOur value is in connections and curationAnd facilitating new knowledge by othersWe don’t “own” the information ecosystemWe must do what it takes to scale up to current and future volumes of data
We will be increasingly reliant on othersSlide13
For users:To mine usage data to provide more relevant and authoritative discoveryTo start from the most relevant information and provide easy means for quick expansionTo coherently display conflicting informationFor cataloguers:To flag dead ends for review and actionTo mine and show candidate connections for reviewTo highlight potentially conflicting informationTo hide complexity (URIs, etc)
We will be increasingly reliant on systemsSlide14
The data and systems are all in the cloudLibrary-based discovery less important but likely still around for a whileSeveral ways systems can navigate the graphCrawlingDereferencingQuery federation(See http://linkeddatabook.com/editions/1.0/#htoc84)
So how will Linked Data systems work?Slide15
CreativityJudgmentQuick analysisAbility to see patternsGood technical instinctsTrust
What skills are needed in the future for cataloguers?Slide16
Watch it grow!
