Visibility and digital accessibility of the School of Salamanca in a linked open-data environment

  • This paper raises the bibliographic and technological approach to increasing visibility and accessibility of the work of the School of Salamanca in the current technological state of the web. The objective is to avoid the cultural effect of not acting in this field, for which authors draw an analogy with Plantin's privilege in 16th-Century Spanish printing. The Virtual Library of the School of Salamanca is described as a Linked Open-Data resource about the authors of this school and their digitized works, in which the relationships between authors and concepts are crucial. For this purpose, different properties of the DBpedia ontology are used, and the descriptions of the authors are systematically linked to other Linked Open-Data resources. All descriptions (authors, works and concepts) are offered in Europeana Data Model and MARC 21. Also discussed are the advantages of Wikipedia and Wikidata in increasing visibility. A summary of this text was presented at the international conference organized by the Max Planck Institute for the History of European Law: "The School of Salamanca: A Case of Global Knowledge Production?", held in Buenos Aires from 24th to 26th October 2018.
