We invite you to attend the following sessions to hear from linked data experts and library peers as they share implementation experiences, lessons learned and real-world solutions that show library linked data in action.

 

·        Beyond the Looking Glass: Real World Linked Data. What does it take to make it work?

 

Join us to explore ontology design and data modeling in the real world. Learn about the people, processes, metrics and yes, the technology needed to succeed.

 

This preconference is intended for Non-IT library staff who have a general understanding of linked data, and are ready to engage further in learning and applying data modeling concepts that are central to using/creating linked data in a production environment. Some knowledge of XML and HTML will be assumed (although not required).

 

When: Friday June 26, 8:30 am – 4:00 pm
