The Competency Index for Linked Data (CI) is a set of topically arranged assertions of the knowledge, skills and habits of mind required for professional practice in the area of Linked Data. Its primary goal is to provide a means for mapping learning resource descriptions to the competencies those resources address to assist in finding, identifying, and selecting resources appropriate to specific learning needs.
