lobid.org is the North Rhine-Westphalian Library Service Center's (hbz) Linked Open Data service. The akronym 'lobid' stands for "Linking Open Bibliographic Data". We support the process of creating Linked Open Bibliographic Data out of existing libraries and other associated data.
Our target is the conversion of existing bibliographic data and associated data to Linked Open Data .
While the first service deals with publishing metadata about bibliographic resources as Linked Open Data, the second service provides a worldwide Linked Data based index of library institutions. Both services are still in an experimental stadium.
