A Linked (Open) Data hub at the Norwegian Directorate for Cultural Heritage - a case study

Carl Anders Olsson

The Norwegian Directorate for Cultural Heritage has since 2014 been working on establishing a centralized Linked (Open) Data hub for its own heritage related digital information. This RDF-hub, which contains content from seven separate databases, has a web based search interface on its top. There is also an associated SPARQL-endpoint which offers both the public and third party developers’ access to the open part of this data. The technical infrastructure is built using a standard RDF approach using predominantly open source tools. 
This proposed presentation aims at giving an overview of the key components of this new infrastructure from both a technical and content vise point of view. It will also address issues concerning the further development of the data hub. Key concepts are issues relating to:
• The benefits or drawbacks of mapping parts of this data to other heritage vocabularies such as EDM, CIDOC CRM etc.
• Challenges with the ambition to share as much of the data as possible with both other governmental agencies and with the public
• New or other uses of the aggregated data in relation to reporting, planning or research
• Potential third party interest and use of the openly shared material in mobile or web based dissemination or in other revenue generating activities
