 Linked Data: Making Library Data Converse with the World
Thursday, June 24, 2010 (Full Day 8am-5pm), location TBA
Cosponsored by ALCTS Metadata Interest Group.
Semantic Web experts say that library metadata must be transformed into Linked Data so it can function in the broader web environment. What does this mean, and how urgent is it? What concrete steps will ensure that libraries are effective participants in the Semantic Web? Presenters will describe the principles of Linked Data and relate them to library-centered linked data projects. Attendees will participate in hands-on exercises to create linked data.
