Open Linked Data (LOD) is providing an excellent opportunity for repositories, libraries, and archives to expand the use of their holdings and advance the work of researchers. The implementation of the GeoLink Knowledgebase has created an exciting LOD framework for organizations specializing in Earth Sciences. As an NSF EarthCube Building Block, GeoLink brings together several powerful data sources, such as BCO-DMO, Rolling Deck to Repository (R2R), Data One, IEDA, IODP, and LTER, with publication providers such as the MBLWHOI Library’s Woods Hole Open Access Server (WHOAS), ESIP, and AGU. While publishing to the GeoLink knowledgebase offers a great way to make collections and metadata more findable and relevant, becoming a linked data publisher is not the only way to engage with linked data or the GeoLink project. Any repository can use simple, easily customizable code developed by members of the GeoLink team to add live GeoLink content to a page based on the item's metadata, leveraging GeoLink’s powerful framework for searching across repositories, organizations, and disciplines.
