Lucy McKenna - NAISC: A Linked Data Interlinking Approach for the Library Domain

The Novel Authoritative Interlinking of Schema and Concepts, or NAISC, approach describes an interlinking framework, provenance model and graphical user-interface that has been designed with the needs and expertise of information professionals in mind. The aim of NAISC is to facilitate information professionals to engage in the process of Linked Data interlinking with greater ease, efficiency, and efficacy.

The purpose of LD interlinks are to enhance the knowledge associated with a specific Thing, or entity, such as a person, place, concept or object. These links have the potential to transform the Web into a globally interlinked and searchable database rather than a disparate collection of documents. Datasets that are rich in interlinks allow for improved information discoverability, with users being guided to a wealth of related information from a single data search.
