With the project "Emblematica Online – Linked Open Emblem Data" we set out to publish the Wolfenbüttel collection of digitized emblem books as Linked Open Data and utilized XProc, first to model the existing publication workflow and then to execute the transformation of TEI-encoded structural metadata documents to RDF/XML.

In the modelling phase we detect flaws in the underlying data and conversion routines. We were able to fix most of the problem and construct an XProc pipeline which turns Emblem Schema documents into RDF/XML documents. With the help of the latter pipeline we published information about approximately 12300 emblems in 220 emblem books as Linked Open Data.
