The linked Swiss metacatalog

The project aims to integrate the metacatalog swissbib into the semantic web, with the creation of a Linked Data service. This implies the transformation of the metadata of swissbib into a semantic format based on the RDF model (Resource Description Framework). The data will be linked with other datasets on the web. An application exploiting the added value of the new semantic structure will be developed and integrated to the basic services of swissbib.

Through this web-compatible format, the data will have a better interoperability and present more flexible possibilities for reuse.


The project is realized within the CUS programme 2013-2016 P-2 "Scientific Information : access, processing and preservation". It is jointly carried out by the Haute école de gestion de Genève, the Hochschule für Technik und Wirtschaft Chur and the Basel University Library. The project started on 1 November 2014.
