Hi @ all,
we’d like to use this opportunity to jump into the conversation and say “hi”.
We are a small team of librarians and developers at Leipzig University Library, Germany. In an environment of many interesting and open technical projects, our context is electronic resource management. Since 2013 we are working on an open source linked data solution to manage our ERM data, that is contracts, licenses, packages and metadata for indexing in our discovery system.
Our editor (http://amsl.technology/?lang=en) is used productively in 4 German university libraries and is completely based on LD technologies, with an Open Link Virtuoso triple store holding all data.
For several reasons we are looking for a new technical platform, and are very interested in using FOLIO - both for its promising technology stack and its big international community.
Currently we are working on a small prototype app for one part of our system, mostly to try out linking FOLIO with a Virtuoso instance and a LD vocabulary. If this works well, we will decide whether to continue developing our whole Linked Data ERMS as a FOLIO module - which we think would be a great way to integrate it into a modern library environment, especially as it is a promising candidate to migrate our whole library systems to in the future.
I din’t see in your post where exactly your current interest in using Linked Data for FOLIO lies - is it in working with the data itself (as we plan to do), importing data or in publishing metadata as LOD?
Either way, we’ll be very interested in taking part in the discussions and developments to come.
Best regards from Germany,
Annika - and the amsl team
