Introduction to Linked Data for Libraries

Many library technologists believe that Linked Data can empower the next generation of library metadata services, both by exposing library structured data more widely to applications and users across our networked world, and by providing library systems with access to richer repositories of descriptive data from other sources. This one-hour presentation will explore the technical underpinnings of linked data, the richer user experience afforded by deeper contextual metadata, and some examples and case studies of library applications already underway.

Presenter: Dr. Timothy J. Dickey

Dr. Timothy J. Dickey is an adult public service librarian with the nationally-acclaimed Columbus Metropolitan Libraries, and a library science educator teaching library technology, reference, and research methods, for the faculties of Kent State University and San José State University. Prior to these positions, he assisted Lynn Silipigni Connaway at the OCLC Office of Research, specializing in user studies and data mining research.
