  • The Web of Data

    The Web does not just contain documents. Web archiving is a method to preserve both data and documents.  Linked Data is growing considerably, with at least 28.5 billion triples in known collections. Tools being developed by the Semantic Web/Linked Data community could radically simplify the archival metadata management problem, and allow those metadata to be searched at scale and also used for data integration across collections in much more sophisticated ways. If care is taken in creating these data sets and tools, federation becomes much easier, and increases the possibility of mining data for previously undetected correlations and patterns.
