Meet the Author! Jean Godby on Library Linked Data

On Thursday, 12 January 2017, the ASIS&T Meet the Author Series webinar will feature Jean Godby.

As many in the library community have acknowledged, the new Web is a growing "cloud" of interconnected resources that identify the things people want to know about when they approach the Internet with an information need. Jean's book Library Linked Data in the Cloud describes OCLC’s contributions to the transformation of the Internet from a web of documents to a web of data. The presentation provides an update on OCLC’s linked data experiments since the book was published.
