Session recording

Metaphactory (https://metaphacts.com/) is a linked data software framework for managing, querying, and exploring knowledge graphs. It supports rapid prototyping and provides an environment for testing and applying search and discovery strategies driven by linked data. Among its features, metaphactory includes a built-in templating engine that facilitates the creation of custom search forms and visualizations. Yale University Library used funds from its Linked Data for Production (LD4P2) cohort subgrant to purchase a metaphactory license, and staff are currently in the process of receiving training from the vendor (metaphacts GmbH) in order to develop expertise in using the features of the software. As the only LD4P2 institution to use its subgrant funds to purchase a license for enterprise-grade software built entirely on linked data standards, Yale's experience with metaphactory is unique in the LD4P2 cohort. A demonstration and critical evaluation of the tool will provide attendees with a concrete example of the possibilities and potential limitations of using a discovery platform that is linked data native.
