Elasticsearch as hub for linked bibliographic metadata by Sebastian Schübach

Elastic Zurich Meetup

The project linked-swissbib aims to extend the Swissbib catalogue - the metacatalogue of all Swiss university libraries among others - towards a semantically enriched bibliographic metadata platform. To accomplish this goal we split the originally monolithic Swissbib records into several distinct bibliographic concepts, transform these newly created documents into JSON-LD and partially enrich them with resources from third-party providers like DBPedia. The modularly built platform linked-swissbib will provide different modes of access to the customers, currently planned are a search catalogue and a RESTful API.
