Over coffee this morning, Mr Jackson and I drew a Linked Data graph (click for bigger):
What do you think about it? Is it detailed enough – or is it too pedantic? I suspect I’m not using a consistent level of abstraction across the whole graph. It was a
first second attempt over a only a very small cup of coffee.
Some if not all of the terms in the graph will already have formal equivalents and HTTP URIs. Anbody care to suggest any? Some are probably already to be found at Chris Gutteridge‘s (and colleagues’) data.southampton.ac.uk – can we work the above up into actual real Linked Data triples using a standard notation?
Finally (so many questions): this still doesn’t quite solve the problem of a standard format for publishing the opening hours themselves. Could that be something as simple as a .csv file? (Easy to update by library staff.) Wouldn’t it be amazing if every
academic library in the country published its opening hours (along with its geographical location and contact details) in such a format at a stable URL?
