Hooland, Seth van, and Ruben Verborgh. Linked Data for Libraries, Archives and Museums: How to Clean, Link and Publish Your Metadata. London: Facet Publishing, 2014.

A lot of my research on linked data to date has been from the perspective of collection management and heritage. This book nicely explained how the metadata of collections can be stored (and queried) as linked data. It also provides examples of SPARQL queries and compared RDF to common formats like CSV, JSON, XML, etc.
