Washington, DC (USA)
This session explores two projects at different points of the prototype-to-production workflow: IIIF (integration of the International Image Interoperability Framework) into a digital discovery environment; and a Linked Data Wikibase prototype (reconciliation tool and editor built to match library metadata workflows) transitioning to production. Temple University presents from the experimenter and practitioner point of view.

Several research libraries have joined with OCLC in a joint research project prototyping a new suite of linked data services. In this webinar, learn about this unique project uses the out-of-the-box services from Wikibase and a high-quality set of name entities available from FAST, VIAF, and Wikidata.

OCLC is working with several member institutions on an experimental project to evaluate Wikibase as part of a new linked data ecosystem. This presentation given by Jean Godby summarizes the work in progress, provides demonstrations of a pilot system, and offers a discussion of the implications with those managing digital collections.

UC-Davis is one of three institutions piloting a new suite of linked data services using out-of-the-box services from Wikibase and entities available from FAST, VIAF, and Wikidata. Washburn and Stahmer describe how the partnership aims to build new tools and best practices for designing linked data environments for production-level library workflows.
