As part of the Linked Data for Production: Closing the Loop (LD4P3) grant, Cornell University and Stanford University have collaborated on the exploration of the use of linked data to enhance discovery. In this presentation, we will describe our work in two separate areas: (a) the use of linked data to enhance knowledge panels and author and subject browse pages in the Cornell production catalog, and (b) our review of work relationships captured by various linked data sources and how these relationships can support specific discovery tasks.

In late December of 2021. Cornell University integrated information from Wikidata, DBPedia, and the Library of Congress linked data service into the library catalog. We will review the earlier experimental work that led to this integration, related usability results, and the stakeholder feedback which informed the final production integration.

In addition, we have been exploring how work relationships and aggregations, such as those provided by Library of Congress hubs and ShareVDE's BIBFRAME transformation of Program for Cooperative Cataloging data, can provide clusters of related works. We will review potential designs for using these clusters to display related works and results in the library catalog.
