===============================================================

ABOUT THE WEBINAR

Libraries have been creating metadata for resources for well over a
century. The good news is that library metadata is rules-based and
that the library cataloging community has built up a wealth of
knowledge about publications, their qualities, and the users who seek
them. The bad news is that library practices were fixed long before
computers would be used to store and retrieve the data. Library
cataloging practice continues to have elements of the era of printed
catalogs and alphabetized cards, and needs to modernize to take
advantage of new information technologies. This metadata, however,
exists today in tens of thousands of databases and there is a large
sigh heard around the world whenever a librarian considers the need to
make this massive change.

As with all large problems, this one becomes more tractable when
broken into smaller pieces. Karen Coyle will present her "five stars
of†library data," an analysis of the changes needed and some steps
that†libraries can begin to take immediately. She will also discuss
the†"open world" view of the linked data movement and how this view
can†increase the visibility of libraries in the global information
space.†This webinar will give an introduction to the types of changes
that†are needed as well as the value that can be realized in library
services. Attendees will learn of some preparatory steps have already
been taken, which should confirm that libraries have indeed begun the
journey "From Here to There."

TOPICS AND SPEAKERS

Karen Coyle is a librarian specializing in metadata development, with
a particular interest in the future of bibliographic control. She
recently served on the W3C Incubator Group on Library Linked Data, and
has written three Library Technology Reports on the Semantic Web and

Working Group and currently co-chairs a W3C Incubator Group on Library
Linked Data.
