At the Charleston Conference last year we presented a conceptual design for the Global Open Knowledgebase (GOKb), a project to create and maintain a community source e-resource knowledge base, one built by and maintained over time by the community and freely available for use by all. Since that time much progress has been made. The project has received funding from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, the initial conceptual design has been realized in a conceptual data model, and we are having conversations with a range of data providers and vendors. This session will provide an update on the scope and design of GOKb; describe points of intersection with our sister project in the UK, KnowledgeBase Plus; and outline ideas for a community maintenance plan. In this Lively Lunch we want to get feedback from the Charleston community on what GOKb could be and how it should be managed. We welcome all input at this formative stage in the project. Who should we be talking to? What will trip us up if we don’t do it right? How would you like to become involved?
