Liberté, Egalité et Free Données: The Use of Linked Data at the ISSN International Centre, Deanna White (ISSN International Centre), Pierre Godefroy (ISSN International Centre), Thomas Francart (Sparna)
The ISSN is a persistent identifier for continuing resources: this concept covers journals and the press as well as scholarly websites and databases. The uniqueness and sustainability of the ISSN are based on a dedicated and reliable system: the numbers are allocated by the ISSN International Centre and approx. 90 National Centers, for their respective countries. ISSNs are associated with a set of metadata grouped in the ISSN Registry and accessible since January 2018 via the ISSN Portal. There are currently over 2.1 million resources, in print and online described. ISSNs are used by all players in the distribution chain of continuing resources: publishers, subscription and distribution services, libraries, discovery tools, researchers and readers. In December 2019, the ISSN Portal started hosting the Keepers Registry which monitors the preservation of digital journals at the international level. The Portal is designed for both human and machine users, allowing navigation via a web browser as well as access via APIs. ISSNs are available as URIs on the ISSN Portal and resolvable via URN (an IETF standard), and via identifiers.org developed by EMBL-EBI. ISSN metadata is retrievable in RDF, JSON, and Turtle. The ISSN International Center has developed a data model based on both widely used ontologies (Schema.org and Dublin Core) for the simplest elements, and on expert ontologies (in particular Bibframe) for items specific to continuing resources. This presentation will provide a comprehensive overview of the ISSN Portal, its linked data model and its services, and discuss the challenge of interoperating with existing Persistent IDs and library catalogues.

IFLA Standards as Linked Data, Joseph Hafner (McGill University)
The IFLA Committee on Standards has a Linked Data Technical Sub-committee that is publishing all of the various IFLA standards in linked data. This has been a several year project to find the best way to move this project forward. This lightening talk will share information about this project and what is available this way. Joseph is the Chair of the Subcommittee and working with a company who is in the process of making this happen.

ID.LOC.GOV, Paul Frank (Library of Congress)
Many persons are not even aware of the existence of ID.LOC.GOV even though it is available for searching by anyone. It is a Library of Congress (LC) linked data service that is maintained and augmented continually by LC. After a short history, the focus will be on how to search it efficiently and effectively to find the data you are seeking.
