Purpose: Provides a forum for discussion of issues related to Linked Library Data and the role of library metadata in the Semantic web. Goals include: raising awareness of Semantic Web technologies, such as the Resource Description Framework (RDF) and the use of URIs as identifiers within bibliographic descriptions; promoting research on linked data challenges, such as domain modeling and vocabulary selection and design; and informing the ongoing development of existing metadata standards for Libraries, Archives and Cultural Heritage Institutions.

  • 1.  Call for new co-chairs - Core Linked Data Interest Group

    Posted Jun 02, 2023 11:19 AM

    The ALA Core Linked Data Interest Group (LDIG) seeks 2 new co-chairs to serve for two years beginning in July 2023. Co-chairs collaborate to plan events - including sessions taking place during ALA Annual and ALA Core Interest Group Week - facilitate ongoing discussion via ALA Connect and share information with Core liaison staff.

    The 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 technologies such as the Resource Description Framework (RDF) model for representing information; the use of URIs as identifiers within bibliographic descriptions; promoting research on linked data challenges, such as domain modeling and vocabulary selection and design; and informing the ongoing development of exiting metadata standards for libraries, archives, and cultural heritage institutions.

    To indicate interest or request further information, please contact LDIG co-chairs Jeff Mixter (mixterj@oclc.org) and Nicole Lewis (nicole_lewis@byu.edu).
