“Linked data” is increasingly discussed in the professional literature and at conferences. But what is it, exactly, and why should we care? This session will start with a simple definition of linked data and follow up with specific examples of library linked data “in the wild”. Since the Library of Congress is proposing to use linked data to re-architect library metadata in a post-MARC world, this topic is both timely and important.
