Webinar:  Library Linked Data: From Vision to Reality
Date:  December 11, 2013
Time: 1:00 - 2:30 p.m. Eastern
Event webpage: http://www.niso.org/news/events/2013/webinars/linked_data



The library and cultural institution communities have generally accepted the
vision of moving to a Linked Data environment that will align and integrate
their resources with those of the greater Semantic Web. But moving from
vision to implementation is not easy or well-understood. A number of
institutions have begun the needed infrastructure and tools development with
pilot projects to provide structured data in support of discovery and
navigation services for their collections and resources.

Join NISO for our December 11 webinar where speakers will highlight actual
Linked Data projects within their institutions-from envisioning the model to
implementation and lessons learned-and present their thoughts on how linked
data benefits research, scholarly communications, and publishing.
