Pinned post

Hi, I've been around the Fediverse for some time now but never introduced myself.

I am a librarian from Cologne working on tools and projects around Linked Open Usable Data. I love the open, decentralized web and using/creating/maintaining free software. I also do some LIS teaching on IT topics.

I am tooting in English and in German but not frequently. I also toot for @lobid, @skohub and @swib.

Please boost for reach. So, anyone that is working on FOSS projects like web apps, sites, Linux apps, desktop environments, or other user interfaces, please let me know if you want them tested for accessibility. I can do both CLI, web, and GUI testing, and app testing on Android. I'm running Debian (on a ChromeBook but that's not too important), so just give me the name of the package, or the URL of the site or app. I can also do Flatpak!

Is there a library-related instance anywhere where we could host recordings of SWIB talks?

Like the last two years, will be held online in the end of November with help from the nice people of @collocall that provide the infrastructure (BigBlueButton, live streaming, Mattermost) and support.

Since 2009, ZBW & hbz have been providing funding and staff to make the annual conference happen. Not to forget the wonderful programme committee that is doing a great job at putting together the programme.

SWIB also has a Mastodon presence at @swib.

There is this conference "Semantic Web in Libraries"(SWIB) which I am involved in organizing. Each year, there's a great bunch of people meeting.

You have something interesting to share about in libraries or related institutions? Or have some ideas on how libraries could contribute more to the growth and maintenance of the Fediverse?

Please consider a submission (which is only an abstract). The deadline has just been extended to 11 July 2022: swib.org/swib22/

Just followed my first #Gitea account from the #fediverse! Here is now my first time mentioning a Gitea account: @Ta180m@git.exozy.me!

Thank you @ta180m@exozy.me for your work!

Im Sommer 2012 hat OCLC ja auch mal die ODC-BY-Lizenzierung von WorldCat.org Linked Data in Kombination mit Community Guidelines verkündet. Die Seite mit den Linzenzierungsangaben und Attribuierungsanforderungen wurde interesanterweise – laut Internet Archive – irgendwann zwischen dem 2021-08-16 and 2021-11-06 vom Netz genommen: web.archive.org/web/2021081610

Mein vorläufiges Fazit: OCLC scheint mir ganz konsequent zu handeln, indem sie immer noch alles daran setzen, ihren Hauptasset WorldCat weiterhin exklusiv verwerten zu können. Um dies zu erreichen, wird nun halt (mal wieder?) ein Konkurrent verklagt, während bisher die eigenen Kunden/Mitgliedsbibliotheken unter Druck gesetzt wurden.

Mir gefällt am GND-Explorer, wie die Satzart=Körperschaft umgangssprachlich mit "Organisation" bezeichnet wird in Filter und Graph. Dieses Detail bestätigt, dass sich die öffnet und genutzt werden soll.
