OCLC and the Library of Congress to clarify approaches to library linked data

OCLC and the Library of Congress to jointly publish a new technical white paper

OCLC and the Library of Congress are hard at work to jointly publish a new technical white paper that will clarify our approaches to linked data and how they fit together to solve key library challenges. We anticipate availability of this technical white paper in late January 2015 and look forward to lively discussions during several joint presentations at the 2015 ALA Midwinter conference.

Mark your calendars now to join us in Chicago as we clarify our approach to library linked data and share practical insights into real-world implementations:  

Saturday, January 31, 1:00 – 2:30 pm
McCormick Place West, Room 474B

Please join us for a hot cup of coffee/tea as linked data implementers share their stories about what has worked and what hasn't, problems faced and solved, and remaining challenges and opportunities. Speakers will be drawn from major library linked data initiatives and their focus will be on practical considerations of linked data implementations. Presenters will speak briefly about their experiences to allow time for discussion with the audience.

Saturday, January 31, 3:00 – 4:00 pm
McCormick Place West, Room 474B

Join OCLC's Ted Fons and Richard Wallis as they discuss how library data stored in an entity-based architecture will revolutionize library workflows. Learn how entities (powered by linked data) will create new approaches to cataloging, resource sharing and discovery of your materials on the Web. Get practical tips to get started today.

Sunday Feb 1, 2015 (10:30AM – 12 noon)
McCormick Place West – W196a

This is an opportunity to share progress and concerns about BIBFRAME, the new bibliographic framework initiative led by the Library of Congress.
