From Open Stacks to Open Descriptions: How Library Linked Data Radically Alters How Libraries Will Share Knowledge

December 16 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm GMT

From Open Stacks to Open Descriptions: How Library Linked Data Radically Alters How Libraries Will Share Knowledge

“Linked data applications will empower users in new ways, delivering multiple knowledge journeys that will better represent different cultures, disciplines, and pedagogies. It is a watershed technological advancement for libraries. Not just a change in the back office business of cataloging and classification, it will improve what libraries are collectively able to accomplish in a dynamic, pluralistic, information environment.”

“Moving from a records-based approach towards more granular, flexible systems that rely on entities, persistent identifiers, and descriptions will, of course, change roles within cataloging, technical services, reference, and other library departments. But this isn’t just a move to be more efficient or to support better findability of library resources.”

“Join OCLC experts Rachel Frick and Nathan Putnam and Torsten Reimer from the British Library who will discuss the implications of linked data and entity descriptions across a range of important issues, including:

  • New roles and responsibilities for metadata librarians
  • Better representation of diverse communities and perspectives
  • The ability to partner with and support other knowledge and memory institutions
    Improved discovery opportunities”

“Find out where we are now and where we’re going as a community from some of the leading experts involved in today’s linked data strategies, planning, and technology development.”
