Save the date for the 2019 LD4 Conference: May 10-11, in Boston, Massachusetts, USA, at the Martin Conference Center at Harvard Medical School. The LD4P initiative, supported by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, is hosting this conference to bring together those who are passionate about the adoption of linked data in libraries.


We’re seeking volunteers to join the Program Committee and set the themes, goals, format, and content of the meeting, from the overall vision down to the details of the two-day agenda. Our beautiful venue accommodates up to 150 people, with flexibility for multiple simultaneous activities. The possibilities are wide open for the direction and nature of this meeting: What would be most valuable to you in a community meeting? How can this community gathering best advance the adoption of linked data in libraries? Join the Program Committee and shape an event you want to be part of!


To be on the Program Committee, you should plan on attending the conference in Boston on May 9 and 10, 2019, and be available for bi-weekly teleconference calls beginning in December. (Program Committee members will receive a stipend to offset the cost of attendance.)


Fill in this short form ( by November 20 to join the Program Committee.
