Bradley,

If you have created the Data Hub record for the dataset yourself, then you can simply delete it on the Data Hub (go to the dataset page, then Settings, then there's a Delete item in the “tab” list on the left). If someone else created the record, email that person, or email a Data Hub admin (e.g., Anja or me) and we can delete the dataset for you.

Best,
Richard

It is based solely on US Library of Congress library linked data (specifically, the Thesaurus for Graphical Materials), which at the time I created the site didn't have any equivalently accessible linked data. That has long since been rectified by the LoC. So t4gm.info is at best redundant and at worst potentially confusing.

But there doesn't seem to be much if any best practice around doing that, especially when the site by virtue of its listing with CKAN is part of the LOD Cloud diagram. What I want to do is 1) delist it from CKAN, and then 2) shut the site down, perhaps replacing it with a simple web service returning a 410 status code per RFC 2616. I assume it will be removed from the LOD cloud diagram when that is next updated from the CKAN data.
