Description: 

The web is evolving from a global information space for storing individual documents into a highly diverse information network in which pieces of data interlink and work synergistically together to create meaning. Speakers will introduce the Semantic Web and the basics of linked data. Particular attention on library linked data will include a review of the state of the art and some practical experience in linking library data to the greater linked data cloud.

Target Audience: Librarians, developers of web applications, information architects, and others interested in the basic concept of the semantic web, linked data and how libraries can take a leadership role in creating linked data solutions.
