Library Data [R]evolution: Applying Linked Data Concepts

In recent years, libraries have made increasing explorations into applying linked data concepts to library metadata. Leaders from OCLC and the Library of Congress shared insights into the evolving metadata landscape. Two libraries discussed their active pursuits of linked data projects using BIBFRAME and Schema.org standards, and how linked data is changing workflows and consumption of library data. An OCLC update and in-depth discussion on the current and future directions of OCLC cataloging and metadata services were also part of this event.
