The concept of relevance in retrieving information resources in discovery tools like Primo needs to be redefined. It should take into account the wider context of queries and retrieved items outside the central and local indexes. Content and relevance are inextricably interlinked. Relevance is only calculated for the isolated items in the indexed content. Many indexed items may have relevant connections to each other in the real world, but these are not visible within the system in any way. Starting point should be the customer’s full connected workflow instead of just the library’s collections. Linked Open Data appears to be a relevant approach. This presentation will give some real life use cases and try to give some tentative solutions.
