Linked Data for Libraries

Thursday, November 6, 2014
Long Room Hub, Trinity College Dublin

Linked Data: is it just a techie buzzword? 
Does it have any relevance to libraries? 
Will it transform library catalogues and cataloguing activities as we know them?

If you have been intrigued by the concept of linked data, but are not sure what it actually is and how, precisely, it relates to libraries in general and cataloguing in particular, this seminar is for you. No prior knowledge is required; the talks from international data and cataloguing experts are designed to appeal to novices and experts alike.


In general, the aims of the seminar are as follows
To contextualise and explain what linked data is
