Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Feedback form is now closed.
This session will focus on the presentation and discussion of projects that implement linked data. Presentations about practical application of Wikidata/Wikimedia, BIBFRAME, and other linked data tools and methodologies will demonstrate the viability of linked data in art libraries and elucidate pathways towards the incorporation of linked data into library activity.

Rather than theoretical discussions of how linked data will impact libraries and discovery, this session will look at how linked data projects have been executed – and the resulting outcomes and workflows. The main intent of this session is to demonstrate viable and realistic ways that linked data has been applied to library projects and metadata. Through the presented strategies, resources, and workflows attendees will have concrete examples of how linked data is evolving and how it can be applied.
