Improving Discovery of and Access to Digital Repository Contents Using Semantic Web Standards: Columbia University’s Academic Commons

Hilliker, Robert J.; Wacker, Melanie; Nurnberger, Amy L.

This article describes the progress made towards developing Academic Commons (AC), Columbia University’s digital repository, as an interoperable repository through the use of RDF and non-RDF Semantic Web technologies. Approaches taken include the implementation of microdata to add semantic markup to HTML content; a collaboration with Oregon State University’s (OSU) digital repository, ScholarsArchive@OSU (SA@OSU), to implement an application that indexes RDF data from OSU for use in AC; as well as an exploration of the recently released MODS RDF.
