International Developments in Library Linked Data: Think Globally, Act Globally Presented by the ALCTS International Relations Committee and the LITA/ALCTS Linked Library Data Interest Group

Libraries have the potential to make major contributions to the Semantic Web, but are still emerging as global participants. RDA implementation and the BibFrame initiative have drawn fresh attention to the promise and potential of linked data. What are the international developments in linked data, emerging from libraries and other memory institutions? Come hear our speakers address current projects, opportunities and challenges.
