LCSH.info shutdown

26 december, 2008 Martin

Unfortunately the Library of Congress has asked Ed Summers to take down LCSH.info. Apparently because it was ”confusing”. This is a shame since the Swedish Subject Headings were linked to LCSH through LCSH.info URIs.

Even though Ed hints that an official LC service might become available later on a better approach would have been to let LCSH.info exist until then and then redirect (both in an HTTP and SemWeb sense) the old URIs to the new ones. Or just let them coexist Or just leave the RDF and SPARQL-endpoint available.

Anyway, LCSH.info was a great service while it lasted.
