Abstract: The term “discovery layer” implies a concept of lamination, which we use to explore how domain knowledge could be applied to large federated search environments. Using the publishing history of Daniel Defoe’s Robinson Crusoe as a case study, we use bibliographic scholarship in the English literary studies community to establish lines of inheritance on all four levels of the FRBR paradigm: work, expression, manifestation and item. We created a small demonstration of a visualization generated from linked data extracted from the scholarly literature, to show how literary scholarship, when encoded as linked data, can create lines of inheritance and influence that enable users to fulfil the fifth user task of the new Library Reference Model: exploration.
