Linked Data for Cultural Heritage does a good job of warning readers that all linked data is not linked open data (LOD), that is—freely accessible and correctly linked. The book also identifies linked data’s inherent limitations, particularly those caused by incorrect metadata and inadequate information technology protocol, which fails to enable LOD to function at optimal efficiency. Linked Data for Cultural Heritage is an effective, fresh commentary on the current uses of library linked data and its possible future.—Technicalities, May/June 2017
Given that the overview of linked data presented here is generally accessible to those at all levels, I think that the volume achieves its objectives of being a resource for students and practitioners wishing to learn more about practical implementations and the workings of linked data models. —Christopher Colwell, Archives and Manuscript, vol. 45, no. 2
