Strategies for Sustaining Digital Libraries
by K. Skinner, M. Halbert
Publisher: Emory University Digital Library 2008
Number of pages: 123
This collection of essays on sustaining digital libraries is a report of early findings from pioneers who have worked to establish digital libraries, not merely as experimental projects, but as ongoing services and collections intended to be sustained over time in ways consistent with the long-held practices of print-based libraries. Particularly during this period of extreme technological transition, it is imperative that programs across the nation - and indeed the world - actively share their innovations, experiences, and techniques in order to begin cultivating new standard practices. The collective sentiment of the field is that we must begin to transition from a punctuated, project-based mode of advancing innovative information services to an ongoing programmatic mode of sustaining digital libraries for the long haul.

RDF and Linked Data have broad applicability across many fields. Requirements for detecting bad data differ across tasks, but nearly all involve some form of data validation. This book introduces data validation and describes its practical use.
