Abstract

In the age of big data and cloud computing, library and information science community get enticed to unlock their rich treasure of knowledge on the web. They are ambitious to link and publish their metadata into Linked Data (LD) cloud despite the lack of technology and the tools to experiment with LD. This paper explains the practical steps, how to be connected with any available structured metadata or any other available metadata with the help of freely available software Open Refine. Open Refine is instrumental to connect locally developed vocabularies with Library of Congress Subject Heading (LCSH).Open Refine and Linked Data applications play significant role to make data structure for metadata practitioners.
