Title: Linked Data - Globally Connecting Libraries, Archives, and Museums

 

In the past years, libraries have embraced their role as global participants in the Semantic Web. Developments in library metadata frameworks such as BibFrame and RDA built on standard data models and ontologies including RDF, SKOS and OWL highlight the importance of linking data in an increasingly global environment. What is the status of linked data projects in libraries and other memory institutions internationally? Come hear our speakers address current projects, opportunities and challenges. Sponsored by the ALCTS International Relations Committee. Co-Sponsored by ALCTS/LITA Linked Library Data Interest Group.
