Many datasets are published on the Web using semantic Web technologies. These datasets contain data that represent links to similar resources. If these datasets are linked together by properly constructed links, users can easily query the data through a uniform interface, as if they were querying a single dataset. In this paper we propose an approach to discover (semi) automatically links between RDF data based on the description models that appear around the resources. Our approach also includes a (semi) automatic process to maintain links when a data-change occurs.
