Chemical Heritage Foundation (CHF) will work with consultants Data Curation Experts (DCE) to develop additional linked data functionalities for the widely-used Hydra repository platform, lowering barriers to linked data implementation for institutions using Hydra. The project will develop open-source code to incorporate existing name authority databases into Hydra's default metadata template. Catalogers will be able to see linked data vocabulary terms using an autocomplete function within the Creator field of Hydra's metadata template, reducing the time and expertise required for institutions to implement linked data functionality. The project will initially support the name authorities found in VIAF and FAST, but will also allow for easy future integration of additional linked data vocabularies.
