Several of the Ivy League libraries and the Library of Congress are upgrading current infrastructure to use linked open data to enhance information.
Stanford Libraries has received a $1.5 million grant from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation “to support library initiatives that develop and advance the use of linked open data,” according to information released by Stanford Libraries.
Stanford Libraries will lead a team representing Columbia, Cornell, Harvard, Princeton and the Library of Congress. The new grant comes after a 2014 award from the foundation to the same group to define the issues involved in libraries shifting to data standards that are compatible to the semantic web.
