Abstract Open data becomes not only the responsibility but also a development opportunity for the government, scientific research institutions, libraries and other cultural heritage institutions. The Shanghai Library, starting from the genealogical data, has been dedicated to constructing the historical documents and data services platform through reorganizing its traditional resources by utilizing the Linked Open Data technologies. The genealogy data services platform, through BIBFRAME-based ontology design, data transformation from RDB to RDF, system design on the basis of the four principles of Linked Data as well as the system development based on the framework of semantic technologies, supports bibliographic control in the Internet environment and satisfies general users’ needs for tracing their family roots, and professional researchers’ demands for data mining.
