Description

Librarians, archivists, computer scientists, and other professionals interested in modeling bibliographic descriptions as linked data are invited to view this webinar recording in which Jean Godby, Jeff Mixter and Shenghui Wang describe the conceptual and technical challenges involved in publishing linked data derived from traditional library metadata. This transformation is urgent because it is now common knowledge that most searches for information start not in the library, nor even in a Web-accessible library catalog, but elsewhere on the Internet. Modeling data in a form that the broader Web understands may help keep libraries relevant in the Digital Information Age.

View this webinar recording to gain more insights into linked data from Jean, Jeff, and Shenghui, including what lessons they learned about linked data as they wrote the book, Library Linked Data in the Cloud: OCLC’s Experiments with New Models of Resource Description, and how these lessons helped them to identify and prioritize the next steps for library linked data.
