Session recording

OCLC has been deeply involved in Linked Data research and practice for over a decade--from early explorations of Time Berners-Lee's early evangelism, to creating getting started guides for catalogers, to providing data sets to the library and research community and the creation of community-informed experimental applications. Please join us for this review of numerous experimental applications as well as fully functional linked data implementations. Discussion will also include the Entity Management Infrastructure, a partnership with LD4 and funded by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation. This session, for both novices and linked data experts, will summarize OCLC's findings on the impact of new workflows in the ground-shifting transition from traditional cataloging to linked data platforms. The presentation will highlight the integral engagement, participation, and feedback from OCLC members who have guided OCLC's efforts at every step. The presentation will also attempt to chart a linked data research path for the decade to come.
