Free Webinar – Leadership Luncheon Series : What Library managers Need to Know About Linked Data

Date: Tuesday, January 15, 2013
Time: noon – 1:00 PM
Place: Online at
Presenter: Roy Tennant
Cost: Free (you must pre-register to receive the URL for the program)

“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.

Don’t miss this opportunity to hear a nationally-known speaker for free!  You must pre-register by January 10 at the link above to receive the URL for the program.

This training is funded in part by Federal Library Services and  Technology Act (LSTA) funds, awarded to New York State Library by the  Federal Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS).
