Preserving Linked Data on the Semantic Web by the application of Link Integrity Techniques from Hypermedia
As the Web of linked data expands it will become increasingly important to preserve data and links such that the data remains useful. In this paper, the authors present a method for locating linked data to preserve which functions even when the URI (Uniform Resource Identifier) the user wishes to preserve does not resolve (i.e. is broken/not RDF) and an application for monitoring and preserving the data. This work is based upon the principle of adapting ideas from hypermedia link integrity in order to apply them to the semantic Web.
