Semantic web, Linked data, Bibframe, LODLAM… It’s hard to get into a library conversation these days without hearing about the possibilities for linked open data in the library setting. This workshop/session will look at developments around the linked data discussion in libraries, introduce the core concepts of linked data, and sketch out a business case for linked data approaches to classification. Come learn what linked data is about and how it might impact library processes and practices.
