Please join NCTPG and OCLC for a special Linked Data event at the San Francisco Public Library!
This event will be in addition to our Annual Meeting in the spring.
Library Data [R]evolution:
Applying Linked Data Concepts
Tuesday, February 10, 2015, 9:30 am – 3:00 pm
San Francisco Public Library
(Portions of this event will be live-streamed for virtual participants)
In recent years, libraries have made increasing explorations into applying linked data concepts to library metadata. Hear leaders from OCLC and the Library of Congress share insights into the evolving metadata landscape. Learn about two libraries’ active pursuit of linked data projects using BIBFRAME and Schema.org standards, and see how linked data is changing workflows and consumption of library data. Later, join us for an OCLC update and in-depth discussion on the current and future directions of OCLC cataloging and metadata services.
(Note: The morning session will be live-streamed and open to virtual participants.)
