About

The following is a brief history of the Art and Science behind Zepheira.

  • 2007

    Our Humble Beginnings

    Spun off from W3C / MIT to leverage the power of the Web to solve problems worth solving.

    Zepheira helps businesses link fragmented data sources into easily searched wholes.

  • 2008

    Delivers Web Data solutions to Global Industry

    Zepheira quickly delivers business solutions to integrate, navigate and manage data within and across enterprises using Semantic Technologies to industries worldwide, including manufacturing, biotech, health care, financial services, medical research and defense.

    Organizations create vasts amounts of data every day, and the problem of not being able to stitch these assets together and discovering patterns is keeping them from making effective decisions

  • 2012

    Architects for the Future Library Industry

    In 2011, Zepheira was selected by the US Library of Congress to design the future standards for the Library Industry.

    BIBFRAME provides a foundation for the future of bibliographic description, both on the web, and in the broader networked world.

  • 2014

    The Libhub Initiative

    The Libhub Initiative aims to raise the visibility of Libraries on the Web by actively exploring the promise of BIBFRAME and Linked Data..

    I believe everyone benefits from the visibility of libraries and their content on the Web.

  • 2016

    The Library.Link Network

    Zepheira introduces the Library.Link Network as an open, decentralized, shared data platform which brings together libraries and their providers to tell the Web localized, comprehensive, connection-rich stories. Because every Library, Archive, Museum and Historical Society has a story to tell.
