All descriptions of use cases in the Social and Emergent Uses Cluster are

Could you please look at them and provide feedback if they make sense,
summaries are understandable, etc?

The use cases are linked from [1]. Attached below are use case names and

P.S. A task that we have remaining is to complete the extracted use cases

Uldis and Jodi



* [[Use Case Community Information Service]] (shared
w/[[Use_Cases#Cluster:_Bibliographic_data|Bibliographic data cluster]])
: Collaboratively curate metadata, in order to announce recently published
books, articles, photographs, videos, etc. which would be of interest to a
designated community. This involves selection, remixing, and republication.

* [[Use Case Crowdsourced Catalog]]
: Distributed individuals (possibly volunteers) improve and enhance catalog
records, and create new ones

* [[Use Case Mendeley Research Networks for linking researchers and
: Collect a crowdsourced scientific publication data base, including user
annotations, tags and usage data. Use this information for discovering new
metadata (e.g., relations). Provide API to this data.

* [[Use Case Open Library Data]] (Jeff) (shared
w/[[Use_Cases#Cluster:_Bibliographic_data|Bibliographic data cluster]]) -
wiki editing
: Make Open Library bibliographic metadata reusable by publishing as linked
data. Use this information in other applications (e.g., for locating full
text of items). In consequence, users who encounter references to books on
the Internet, in a variety of environments, are able to link to a source of
access to the book, e.g. a full text version available at the Internet

* [[Use Case Peer to Peer Bookswapping]]
: Facilitate the swapping of e-books and paper books (Uldis to amend the use
case re paper books) among members of a community. Use linked data for
aggregating distributed catalog holdings made by individuals.

* [[Use Case Ranking Search Results by Popularity using Circulation Data]]
: Publish circulation data as linked data. Use the open, aggregated
circulation data for ranking search results (e.g., in OPACs).

* [[Use Case Social Annotation]]
: Use linked data to publish and share user annotation to works and
fragments of works (e.g., paragraphs). Use this crowdsourced information in
new and existing applications.

* [[Use Case Social Recommendations]]
: Provide users with recommendations or search rankings based on information
available about item popularity and user activity. Help the exchange of user
activity [and item circulation] data by expressing it in a machine-readable
form (RDF).

* [[Use Case Support This Book Button]]
:Websites use a button which users can click to indicate interest in helping
bring a book into the public domain. This distributed information is
collected and centralized by Gluejar, who negotiate with publishers based on
the interest.

===Other Emergent and New Uses===

* [[Use Case Crosslinking Environment Data and the Library]]
: A non-library system which makes extensive use of a classification system
(a thesaurus, a gazetteer and a chronicle) is interlinked with a library
classification system.

* [[Use Case Publish Data for Lightweight Application Development]]
: Linked data is used to support mashups, with less upfront understanding of
data formats required.

* [[Use Case SEO]] (elements of this may belong in other clusters, too)
: Structured data is exposed from library catalogs to ensure that library
data is searchable through Web search engines.
