This website documents community conventions in the use of W3C Linked Data Notifications (LDN) to integrate repository systems with relevant services in a distributed, resilient and web-native architecture.

The documentation specifies:

  • Use-cases where Notify may be used to good effect to integrate resources in repositories with resources in other networked systems.
  • Scenarios which describe an example operation (from one or more of the identified use-cases), typically involving a repository system and one other service. These operations are enabled by the exchange of notifications.
  • Notification Patterns (templates) which describe the payload for re-usable notifications. These notifications describe the individual LDNs sent between repositories and services, one or more of which may be used in a scenario. A given notification is defined in the context of a scenario, and uses a pattern.
  • A vocabulary which are used to provide values for certain properties in the notification payloads.
