Event Linked Data & Next Generation Catalogs

by ALAConnect Helpdesk (staff) on Sat, Jun 9, 2012 at 01:08 am

Timezone:
US/Pacific (-7)

Timezone:
US/Pacific (-7)

Discussions on the concepts of linked data have been everywhere, but practical strategies for its implementation are hard to find. “Linked data,” a recommended best practice for exposing, sharing and connecting pieces of data information and knowledge on the Semantic Web, is expected to be fully embraced by the next generation catalogs already in the later stages of development. During this session, attendees will learn about the basic concepts of linked data and the impacts and benefits of adapting linked data in the area of future bibliographical control. To supplement our discussion, developers from a few next generation catalog systems will demonstrate their implementations of linked data.

Featuring:
Cory Harper (NYU); Phil Schreur (Stanford); Theodore Fons (OCLC); Yvette Diven (Serials Solutions) Jennifer Bowen (eXtensible Catalog)

The group will have a business meeting following our program.
