CAMELOT is a contextual semantic data model that frames objects within the scope of the Bodleian Libraries, with context, including provenance.
The CAMELOT data model is a description of “real world” objects together with their properties and relationships.
The main aim of the data model is to support the development of information systems at the Bodleian Digital Library by providing a human-readable and machine-readable definition and format of data.
The implementation of a common data model promises the following benefits to the Bodleian Digital Library:
- compatibility of data between different systems and the opportunity for data integration
- a data model that can be used for reference by those within and outside the organisation
