The CoBiS is a network formed by 65 libraries. The project is a pilot for Piedmont aiming to provide the libraries with an infrastructure for LOD publishing, creating a triplification pipeline designed to be easy to automate and replicate. This was realized with open source technologies, such as the TARQL and JARQL tools that use SPARQL queries to describe the conversion of tables (CSV) or trees (JSON) into graphs (RDF data). The first challenge consisted in making possible the dialog of… 
Modeling the semantics of data sources with graph neural networks
TLDR
This paper presents a novel approach based on Graph Neural Networks (GNNs) to build semantic models of data sources, which outperforms the state of the art in cases of data source with the largest amount of semantic relations defined in the ground truth.
SeMi: A SEmanticModelingmachIne to build Knowledge Graphswith graph neural networks
TLDR
At the best of the authors' knowledge, this is the first technique that exploits a graph neural network to support the semantic modeling process and can be considered as a step ahead towards automatic and scalable approaches for building Knowledge Graphs.
Global trends of libraries development: optimism vs pessimism (foreign literature review) Part 1
TLDR
It is concluded that libraries should not only accumulate resources and provide access to them, but renew existing approaches to forms and content of their activities, as well as goals, missions and prospects for their development using various hard- and software, cloud computing technologies, mobile technologies and apps, social networks, etc.
Мировые тенденции развития библиотек: оптимизм vs пессимизм (по материалам зарубежной литературы) Часть 1
TLDR
It is concluded that libraries should not only accumulate resources and provide access to them, but renew existing approaches to forms and content of their activities, as well as goals, missions and prospects for their development using various hard- and software, cloud computing technologies, mobile technologies and apps, social networks, etc.

RML: A Generic Language for Integrated RDF Mappings of Heterogeneous Data
TLDR
The rml mapping language is introduced, a generic language based on an extension over r2rml, the w3c standard for mapping relational databases into rdf, which becomes source-agnostic and extensible, while facilitating the denition of mappings of multiple heterogeneous sources.

TLDR
The authors describe progress to date in publishing Linked Data on the Web, review applications that have been developed to exploit the Web of Data, and map out a research agenda for the Linked data community as it moves forward.

Wikidata: la soluzione wikimediana ai linked open data
TLDR
The paper examines Wikidata’s technical and theoretical features; its main objectives; the essential notion and meaning of ‘item’ and ‘property’; the state of the art three years after its launch – with regard to Wikimedia projects as well as to third parties; and an overview of the main tools created so far for the reuse of Wikidatas data.
