One Comment on “Metadata reconciliation”

  1. One way to deal with compound access points, e.g., personal names appearing in name/title strings in the description of a resource, will be to find or provisionally create a URI for the whole string signifying the work entity. The person as creator and the title as a kind of label could be specified in relation to the work entity, and the person’s name could then be reconciled to obtain the person’s URI, found or provisional, as part of linked data about the work, and indirectly about the resource. Is this kind of deconstruction of the entities that get rolled up into compound statements in resource descriptions part of the vision for metadata reconciliation? Or is having this kind of expanded work space a luxury we can’t afford?
