Semantic web standards for digital libraries

Special issue call for papers from Digital Library Perspectives

Guest editor: Pedro Hípola, Research Manager, UNIR, Madrid, Spain


Semantic web technologies increasingly facilitate the development of new systems and procedures for the description, linking and interoperability of materials that are managed in digital libraries. Digital libraries have benefited from technologies related to linked data and ontology management. Standards related to metadata management have been developed, and valuable data models have also been proposed, such as those of DPLA and Europeana. This special issue of Digital Library Perspectives aims to showcase recent experiences in the use of standards related to the management of metadata, linked data and ontologies in digital libraries. The journal is seeking high quality original submissions, both conceptual and practical. Areas of interest include (but are not limited to):

  • The use of standards related to metadata management: RDF Schema, SPARQL, Data Models proposed for DPLA, Europeana, and other semantic mapping techniques
  • The use of standards related to linked data management: LOD, LODE.
  • The use of standards related to ontologies management: OWL, SKOS, FOAF, SWRL, Topic maps, ALPS, SIOC.
  • Recent experiences in projects related to SemanticWiki and DBpedia data
