Eyal Oren, Giovanni Tummarello "A lookup index for Semantic Web resources", Proceedings of the ESWC Workshop on Scripting for the Semantic Web, in conjunction with ESWC, 2007.
Developers of Semantic Web applications face a challenge with respect to the decentralised publication model: where to find statements about encountered resources. The ¿linked data¿ approach, which mandates that resource URIs should be de-referenced and yield meta- data about the resource, helps but is only a partial solution and not followed widely. We present a simple lookup index that crawls and indexes resources on the Semantic Web. Our index allows applications to automatically retrieve sources with information about a certain resource. In contrast to more feature-rich Semantic Web search engines, our index is limited in scope and functionality and is therefore simple, small, and scalable.
