As we are gear­ing to­wards es­tab­lish­ing Web 3.0 which is the Se­man­tic Web, pro­fes­sion­als in the field of in­for­ma­tion are work­ing hand in hand to de­velop method­olo­gies on how to put in­tel­li­gence in our search. A user can find what he/ she is look­ing for from the vast Web in­stead of a mis­lead­ing re­source (Cleve­land 2011). When Tim Bern­ers Lee de­vel­oped the Web, he never re­al­ized how his works would flour­ish and grow to the point that it is un­man­age­able. After 20 years of build­ing the Web, in his TED talk in 2009 about “The Next Web,” he in­tro­duced the idea of the OPEN DATA ini­tia­tive to un­lock the po­ten­tial of the Web and to pro­vide use­ful and in­tel­li­gent data. The tech­nol­ogy to re­al­ize this call, is what he called Linked Data.

This study at­tempts to cat­a­log the 23 mu­sic scores (com­po­si­tions) of the Jose Maceda Col­lec­tion (JMC) us­ing Linked Data Method­olo­gies for them to be pub­lished in the con­tin­u­ously grow­ing Web Ar­chi­tec­ture and to con­trib­ute to Linked Data Cloud, a uni­fied data­base or a union cat­a­log. The data set is cho­sen based on the unique­ness of its col­lec­tion which is an ex­cel­lent and vi­able com­pen­dium to be added to the Linked Data Cloud. JMC is lo­cated at the Cen­ter for Eth­no­mu­si­col­ogy Li­brary of the Col­lege of Mu­sic of the Uni­ver­sity of the Philip­pines. The Li­brary also houses a col­lec­tion of sound doc­u­ments com­pris­ing around 2,000 hours of record­ings on reel to reel tapes and cas­settes. JMC is the prin­ci­pal hold­ing of the UP Cen­ter for Eth­no­mu­si­col­ogy, founded in 1997 by José Maceda him­self. Due to its uni­ver­sal sig­nif­i­cance, the col­lec­tion was in­scribed on the In­ter­na­tional Reg­is­ter of the Mem­ory of the World Pro­gramme in 2007.

Re­source De­scrip­tion Frame­work (RDF) data model to pub­lish struc­tured data and links to con­nect and in­ter­link data of dif­fer­ent re­sources are the ba­sic tenets of Linked Data. To­gether with RDF Query Lan­guage and SPARQL pro­to­col, the 23 mu­sic scores can be re­trieved and ma­nip­u­lated by the users of JMC. Fur­ther­more, Web On­tol­ogy Man­i­festo con­tain­ing the Triples and N3-Triples model rep­re­sent­ing the de­scrip­tive cat­a­log of the said mu­sic scores is built to be sub­mit­ted to the Linked Open Data to con­trib­ute to the Se­man­tic Web of au­thor­ing knowl­edge data­bases of mu­sic in­for­ma­tion.
