Open Oregon Digital: Transforming metadata for the semantic web
Oregon Digital, the shared digital collections of the University of Oregon and Oregon State University, recently migrated its digital asset management systems to Hydra and its digital collection data to linked open data (LOD). The Hydra Project is an open source technical framework with a Fedora back-end for providing access, management and preservation of digital content. This paper outlines the steps taken by Oregon Digital to crosswalk data, standardise institutional and cross-institutional collections and publish URIs required for LOD implementation. It also discusses the future benefits of LOD for cataloguing, searching and discovery of the digital collections.
