RE: Suggestions for a textbook?

Hi Atilla,

I will be teaching a new module on semantic web next semester and I have decided to go with a combination of the following:

[1] A Semantic Web Primer
By Paul Groth, Frank van Harmelen, Rinke Hoekstra

[2] Semantic Web for the Working Ontologist: Effective Modeling in RDFS and OWL
Dean Allemang, James Hendler

[3] Foundations of Semantic Web Technologies
By Pascal Hitzler, Markus Krotzsch, Sebastian Rudolph

[4] Linked Data: Evolving the Web Into a Global Data Space
By Tom Heath, Christian Bizer

[1] gives a good overview of the various technologies (RDF, RDFS, SPARQL, OWL, Ontologies and Rules) and how they fit together. However, it only scratches the surface, therefore I would suggest [2] as a practical guide for developing applications using these technologies and [3] for a more in-dept look at the theory underpinning them.
Whereas [4] gives an excellent overview, how these technologies and others are being used to build a web of data.
Both [1] and [3] have exercises at the end of each chapter.

I would be interesting in knowing what others are using.

This might be suitable for a computer science course, but as the name suggests is focused on foundations.

@Book{FOST, author = {Pascal Hitzler and Markus Kr{\"o}tzsch and Sebastian Rudolph}, title = {Foundations of Semantic Web Technologies}, year = {2009}, publisher = {Chapman \&{} Hall/CRC} }

Hi all,
What would be a good textbook on semantic Web technology and applications for an intro grad course? If no suitable textbook is available, then please suggest suitable books for reading assignments.
Thanks in advance.
