OCLC Completes Project to Continue Helping Libraries Leverage Linked Data

OCLC announced the completion of a project “to develop a shared entity management infrastructure that supports linked data initiatives in the library community. As a result of this effort, OCLC has released millions of authoritative WorldCat Entities through a publicly searchable website and will continue to partner with libraries to develop the tools needed to fully incorporate linked data into library workflows and improve resource discovery through connections.”

OCLC worked on the project with an advisory group of libraries from around the world, and the more than 150 million WorldCat Entities are freely available to search at The Mellon Foundation helped fund the project via a grant, and with this grant, OCLC also developed OCLC Meridian (a linked data management tool) and APIs that will be released after a development partner phase that will explore how they can be integrated into library workflows.
