Purpose: Provides a dedicated forum for the discussion of conceptual models, such as IFLA-LRM and BIBFRAME 2.0, that serve as the basis for current cataloging standards or are expected to provide a foundation for future cataloging standards in a Linked Open Data environment. Topics of special interest include: theoretical foundations of bibliographical conceptual models; the implementation of bibliographical conceptual models in information systems (especially Linked Data-based systems); extensions of current conceptual models; ontologies and conceptual models used in GLAM institutions.

    The ALA Core
    Linked Data Interest Group (LDIG) supports learning and discussion related to the emerging role of library data in the semantic web. Our mission is to raise awareness of core semantic web technologies such as the Resource Description Framework (RDF) model for representing information, and of linked data initiatives which may be of interest to the galleries, libraries, archives, and museums (GLAM) community.

    The LDIG seeks a co-chair to serve for two years beginning in July 2021. Interest group co-chairs collaborate to plan events--including sessions taking place during ALA Annual and ALA Core Interest Group Weeks--facilitate ongoing discussion via ALA Connect, and share information with Core liaison staff.

    To indicate interest or request further information please contact LDIG co-chair Benjamin Riesenberg.
