ZBW Labs: Publish Projects as Linked Data

Joachim Neubert

Abstract


ZBW Labs (http://zbw.eu/labs) gives insight into software developments of the
German National Library for Economics (ZBW). It presents applications and (web) services in an
experimental or beta state. In order to make information about these projects available on the web
of data, the underlying content management system Drupal is used to add semantic (RDFa) markup,
combing the DOAP (description of a project), schema.org and DC vocabularies. Though Drupal 7 has
RDF support built in natively, some customizations were required to make Linked Data URIs and
nested property structures available.
