Abstract:Since the advent of Linked Data (LD) in circa 2006, the participation of many institutions in publishing their data online has led to rapid growth of a Linked Open Data (LOD) cloud. In the library field, major libraries from countries around the world have become aware of the value of LOD and are making an effort to publish the quality metadata that they hold as LOD. The National Library of Korea (NLK) joined this movement in 2012. With the quantitative increase in LOD, it has become necessary to build LOD-based application services both to enable more institutions to participate in publishing LOD and to provide real benefits to users. This paper describes the LOD data model of the National Library of Korea, the core of its developing LOD-based application service and planned interface. The paper evaluates and discusses the anticipated effects of the new system for its target audience.
