At the conclusion of the Monday business meeting (January 10, 2011, 1:30 to 5:30 pm in the San Diego Convention Center, Room 27B), there will be a presentation on Linked Data.

John Mark Ockerbloom, digital planner and researcher at the University of Pennsylvania, will give a presentation on linked open subject authority data from the Library of Congress (http://id.loc.gov/) and how it can be used to improve subject cataloging and browsing. Mr. Ockerbloom will describe how the LC data is structured (including a brief overview of RDF and SKOS), and explain how he has used it to improve The Online Books Page (http://onlinebooks.library.upenn.edu/) and the Penn Libraries' catalog. He will also show how he augmented and enhanced the authority data from LC, and discuss how widespread use of linked bibliographic and authority data may change how we build and use catalogs in the future.
