Exploiting graph-based data to realize new functionalities for scholar-built worksets

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

In this poster, we describe how the HathiTrust Research Center (HTRC) is developing a graph-based approach to representing scholar-built worksets in the HTRC's research workflows. The use of named graphs to express relationships among worksets, workset items (volumes and pages) and relevant external resources and to manage ownership, version control and access to worksets aligns well with HTRC's non-consumptive research architecture. In addition to managing scholars' research collections, HTRC workset graphs also provide a means to link individual workset items to descriptive metadata and allows scholars to annotate their worksets and the items in them.
