Over the past fifteen years, my perspective on tackling information
interoperability problems for web-based scholarship has evolved
significantly. My initial work, including OAI-PMH and OpenURL, started from
a repository-centric approach. It took into account the existence of the
Web, but merely piggyback on it. Starting with OAI-ORE, the approach became
web-centric and started to fundamentally embrace the Architecture of the
World Wide Web and related technologies. This shift is characterized by an
approach that consists of first translating a problem related to scholarly
information interoperability to a problem for the Web at large, next
devising a Web-centric solution at that level, and then bringing it back to
the scholarly Web. I have come to consider this Web-centric approach not
just as a design choice but rather as an essential component for
sustainable Web-based scholarly infrastructure. In this Webinar, I will
illustrate this shift by means of design patterns from various
interoperability efforts, including Open Annotation, Memento, ResourceSync,
Signposting the Scholarly Web, and Robust Links.
