POST: Fitting the Pieces Together: Progress on Linked Data for Libraries

Trevor Owens (Institute of Museum and Library Services) provides a recap of the Linked Data for Libraries (LD4L) Workshop that took place at Stanford University in February, 2015, in a post on the IMLS blog.

Owens notes that “one of the central points of focus at the meeting was to work through a series of use cases in which librarians and library users might make use of linked data-based services to aid their use of library resources” that are “quite useful in illustrating how linked data can help meet the needs of particular library user communities.”

Owens goes on to provide links to lightning talks and presentations, the “tweetwall” archive of the #LD4L twitter stream, and other resources for learning more about linked open data.
