LD4L 2014, which was the Linked Data for Libraries original grant running from 2014-2016, has been completed. This page is part of the archive for that grant.
These use cases are work in progress...
The work of LD4L is heavily informed by use cases. If Linked Data is going to be "fit for purpose" and deliver value in a library context, its essential to know the users, uses and hoped for benefits for leveraging linked data.
Building on and distilled from the preliminary use cases and a revised subset , this page represents a further refined set of use cases to guide the ontology and engineering work for the project. The use cases divide into six "clusters" reflecting the data available to research institutions and libraries, and the core LD4L mission of leveraging the intellectual input of librarians, domain experts and scholars as they produce, curate and use scholarly information resources.

Cluster 1: Bibliographic + curation data
Cluster 2: Bibliographic + person data
Use Case 2.1: See and search on works by people to discover more works, and better understand people
Cluster 3: Leveraging external data including authorities
Cluster 4: Leveraging the deeper graph (via queries or patterns)
Cluster 5: Leveraging usage data
Cluster 6: Three-site services
