Paper on Linked Data and Format Registries

Dave Tarrant of Southampton University (with co-authors Steve Hitchcock and Les Carr) has recently published a paper in the International Journal of Digital Curation: “Where the Semantic Web and Web 2.0 Meet Format Risk Management: P2 Registry“.

This describes the work Dave has done on creating a Linked Data registry (‘P2’) to hold information about file formats from PRONOM, DBpedia and elsewhere (which has in turn influenced the recent OPF work on file format registries).

The paper explains in detail how such a system works,so well worth a look if you are wondering what a ‘Linked Data file format registry’ actually looks like.  (It also provides a useful general introduction to RDF and Linked Data).
