Linked Data and SHARE
ARL's SHARE project (http://www.share-research.org) "is building a free, open, data set about research and scholarly activities across their life cycle." Working with SHARE, the Center for Open Science (COS) has harvested and organized a wealth of metadata from various institutional repositories and other sources such as open data repositories. While COS has already provided a search function, there remains a need for other mechanisms to discover, search and visualize content within SHARE. With funding from the Sloan Foundation, the Sheridan Libraries at Johns Hopkins University, Portico and IEEE have developed RMap (http://rmap-project.info/rmap/), which features a method for building and displaying linked data information graphs.

Using the RMap protocol for aggregations known as DiSCO, which is based on the OAI-ORE protocol, and a set of REST APIs, the RMap team has worked with COS to develop a data model for SHARE and harmonize the SHARE metadata into a set of linked data information graphs. These linked data graphs represent a useful resource and lens for making new connections between content within the SHARE network, identifying gaps in SHARE metadata and visualizing the SHARE network as a linked data framework. The COS has expressed an interest for additional work with RMap and SHARE.

The RMap team has also generated linked data information graphs from all of the journal content from IEEE and additional content from ACM, NCBI and Portico, all of which was used to infer connections within the SHARE network.

One Size Does Not Fit All: Tuning the Discovery Service to Meet Stakeholder Needs
More often than not, a one-sized single solution does not fit. When implementing a discovery service, each institution has its own requirements and different types of users have different needs. In this session, the two universities will examine different configuration and customization options that are available to libraries when implementing a discovery service. Join Esther Onega, University of Virginia and Kristi Lobrano, Franklin University to discuss what libraries can do independently, and where vendor support comes in. Topics include branding, profile options, catalog and IR loading, linking, and website integration.

Open and Collaborative: Building the Big Ten Academic Alliance Geoportal Abstract
Ten member institutions of the Big Ten Academic Alliance, formerly the Committee on Institutional Cooperation (CIC) worked together to create the Big Ten Academic Alliance Geoportal, a discovery interface to facilitate access, and to connect scholars to geospatial data resources. Ten of the member institutions are participating in the project, including the University of Illinois at Urbana­-Champaign, Indiana University, the University of Iowa, the University of Maryland, the University of Michigan, Michigan State University, the University of Minnesota, Pennsylvania State University, Purdue University, and the University of Wisconsin-­Madison. The institutions worked together to identify openly available data sets to make searchable in the interface. The project then organized the collaborative creation and aggregation of discovery-focused metadata describing geospatial data resources and made those resources discoverable via an open source portal built in Geoblacklight. The collectively supported project provides the staffing and technical infrastructure to host and develop the services. The poster will show the organization of this collaborative project and the established processes for collaborative geospatial metadata creation and portal development. It will also outline upcoming work for the project, including interface assessment and plans to include licensed data in the discovery interface.
