Dr. Jeremy Debattista - Understanding Information Professionals: A Survey on the Quality of Linked Data Sources for Digital Libraries

In this presentation we discuss the experiences of Information Professionals (IPs) with regard to Linked Data quality. We highlight the shortcomings in terms of quality in linked data sources and the quality considerations taken by IPs when searching for such sources for their daily tasks such as metadata creation. Later on we demonstrate a new proof-of-concept linked data search tool which enables IPs to identify the best quality measures for an interlinking task in order to rank various linked data sources based on their quality.
