Agenda Midwinter 2012, Sunday, Jan. 22, 10:30-12

The LITA/ALCTS Linked Library Data Interest Group (LLD-IG) will be meeting from 10:30-12 on Sunday, January 22 in the Lone Star Ballroom C2 of the Sheraton Dallas.

We're hoping for a visit from Jon Voss, founder and organizer of the LOD-LAM movement, for a presentation on the current state of LOD-LAM. This will be followed on by other updates and reports on Linked Data activities. We can also make time for a limited number of lightning talk style presentations of no longer than 5 minutes if you have projects or topics that you'd like to share. If you'd like to give a brief talk, please contact the interest group chairs. The remainder of the morning will be a business meeting, including updates from sub-groups formed at Annual in New Orleans, and planning for the Annaheim Preconference. 

Additionally, we are looking for volunteers to replace Karen Coyle & Corey Harper as co-chairs, or volunteers for a new chair and chair-elect. The current chairs intend to stay involved in the group, but feel that after one year of informal meetings and a year of formal existence, it's time for new leadership. Please contact the interest group chairs if you'd like to consider stepping into this leadership role.
