OCLC Researcher and Other Staff Contribute to W3C Library Linked Data Draft Final Report and Other Linked Data Activities
Jeff serves on the overall Library Linked Data Incubator Group, along with two other OCLC staff: Software Architect Tod Matola and Dewey Decimal Classification Assistant Editor Michael Panzer.
These activities with the W3C are among a variety of Linked Data-related research and standards activities at OCLC.
Linked Data offers the potential for publishing information in a manner that permits far greater utility "in the flow" of the network. It also facilitates unexpected connections, uses and value that may be realized by many parties, including parties with which the hosting/publishing agency might not normally have had contact.
