    Troubleshooting Linked Data Authority Records

    When accessing or referencing linked data resources, catalogers or metadata librarians may encounter statements that seem incorrect. Sometimes linked data authorities for entities, particularly individuals and organizations, contain factual errors. How can these potential issues be assessed? Can individuals provide constructive feedback to the organization that hosts the authority record(s)? This session will discuss these issues, and how best practices may differ for different platforms and data sources.
