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.

    The Coalition for Networked Information (CNI) recently posted the video of a project briefing from its fall meeting that will likely be of interest to readers of this list: "Cultural and Technical Transformations: Benefits from Yale's Linked Data Cross-Collection Discovery Platform" is now openly available:

    https://www.cni.org/topics/digital-humanities/cultural-and-technical-transformations-benefits-from-yales-linked-data-cross-collection-discovery-platform

    In the presentation, Susan Gibbons (vice provost for collections and scholarly communication) and Robert Sanderson (director for cultural heritage data) describe Yale University's discovery platform that brings together collections from its museums, libraries, archives, and special collections. The system improves upon existing linked open data-based infrastructures by seamlessly integrating full-text search with graph-based queries and demonstrates the value of connecting and enriching data across domain, organizational and institutional boundaries.

    All videos from CNI's Fall 2022 Membership Meeting (https://www.cni.org/mm/fall-2022) are now freely and openly available from the event website, and on CNI's YouTube and Vimeo channels. Please feel free to share these resources widely!
