OCLC Unveils Meridian Tool for Creating, Curating, and Connecting Linked Data Entities

OCLC announced the following:

Introducing OCLC Meridian, a web application and set of APIs that libraries and other organizations that manage metadata for knowledge collections can use to create, curate, and connect linked data entities. Published in WorldCat Entities, this linked data is then available for use across a wide variety of services, systems, and data sets to connect to other knowledge streams where people search for information.

Meridian enables the creation of linked data entities and descriptive relationships from within libraries’ current workflows, forming connections to existing bibliographic records and other datasets in the global information ecosystem. Through these connections, WorldCat Entities data improves library discovery, findability, and relevance across the web.

This new service allows libraries and other organizations managing metadata to contribute to a shared linked data infrastructure. Libraries can contribute at their own pace and without disruptions to their current workflows.

For more information, read the press release.
