RDA and Linked Data

It was announced today that the RDA terms for Content Type, Carrier Type, and Media Type have been published as open linked data in the Open Metadata Registry. The terms in these vocabularies have been “derived from the RDA/ONIX framework for resource categorization which established an extensible methodology for categorization of resources according to content and carrier.”

As noted in the announcement posted to Autocat, Gordon Dunsire says:

These vocabularies are crucial for the selection and identification of information resources. Their publication as linked data in RDF allows the terms to be used by all bibliographic metadata communities in the Semantic Web environment. I look forward to the future development and publication of mappings from the vocabularies to the RDA/ONIX Framework. Similar mappings of other content and carrier vocabularies, such as those for ISBD area 0, will support metadata interoperability between communities and improve resource discovery for all.”

Another RDA step forward …
