“The Magic” – restructuring the EAD to RDF XSLT transform

Wed, 12 Oct 2011 08:20:37 +0000

By Pete Johnston In a previous post I described how I had used an XSLT transform to generate RDF/XML from the EAD XML representation of the Mass Observation Archive catalogue exported from the CALM archival data management system. My approach was to take the XSLT I’d created within the LOCAH project to process the Archives […]

Linking to LOCAH

Wed, 12 Oct 2011 08:20:11 +0000

As readers of this blog will know, we followed closely in the footsteps of the LOCAH project and we are now linked to the Archives Hub dataset. Which is nice. See as an example Our other  external links are: -DBpedia (for some places, people & organisations) e.g. – Geonames (for some places) e.g. […]

This is our final blog post for the JISC RDTF (now Discovery) SALDA project on the completion of the six month project. I’m sure there will be more related blog posts here in the coming months. Things we have produced The SALDA Project has produced the following: The catalogue data of the Mass Observation Archive […]

Converting EAD data to RDF Linked Data

Mon, 25 Jul 2011 11:56:15 +0000

In my last blog post I discussed how to setup our server to handle the URIs being created within our Linked Data, and said the next step was for us to turn our EAD/XML data from Calm in to RDF/XML Linked Data. This is a big step, until now our process looked something like this: […]

Cost/benefits of the open data approach

Mon, 18 Jul 2011 09:54:35 +0000

We have been asked to assess how much it has cost us in terms of time and resources to make our data openly available, so here goes. Our approach to the project was to have a dedicated project manager (me) working 0.5 FTE, using the skills of Pete Johnston for the transformation to Linked Data […]

Setting up our URIs and the Talis Platform

Wed, 13 Jul 2011 09:58:23 +0000

Time to set up our URIs and upload our data to one of our Talis Platform stores. In a previous post we discussed which URIs to use. We settled on – we felt this should be stable, and allow for integration with other Special Collection records in the future (while not conflicting with other Library data). […]

Following in our footsteps

Wed, 06 Jul 2011 10:38:41 +0000

Question: If others wanted to take a similar approach to your project, what advice would you give them. Our advice at the start would be: 1. Get your data ready. We are working on our catalogue data to make it more structured so that we can be ready to export to other formats and make […]

Local data for local people

Mon, 06 Jun 2011 15:20:31 +0000

This  is to add to Pete’s  post on the transformation of our data. The SALDA project is really searching for a framework or a set of tools to enable us to transform our other archive collections into Linked Data. What we have discovered so far is that there is a model that we can apply […]

The data transformation

Mon, 16 May 2011 15:15:45 +0000

by Pete Johnston I’ve been working on a first attempt at processing the Encoded Archival Description (EAD) XML output provided by Karen from their CALM database in order to generate RDF data for the Mass Observation Archive. My starting point has been the work done within the LOCAH project, to which I’ve also been contributing, […]
