Join OCLC’s Ted Fons, Corey Harper of New York University, and Phil Schreur of Stanford University as they trace the evolution of linked data technology over the years, and demonstrate practical applications of the latest linked data technologies being utilized in libraries today.

Five years ago linked data was introduced to the library community as a powerful technology with great promise for libraries, visionary but abstract. In the years since, what was a buzzword has become a fixture in our lexicon. Yet as our understanding of the technology has progressed and solidified, we still struggle to identify the specific benefits of linked data within our individual institutions. Join OCLC’s Ted Fons, Corey Harper of New York University, and Phil Schreur of Stanford University as they trace the evolution of linked data technology over the years, and demonstrate practical applications of the latest linked data technologies being utilized in libraries today.
