CFP: Implementing Linked Open Data in the Real World - Session at ALA Annual (New Orleans - June 2018)

Exposing bibliographic and cultural heritage information as linked open data makes possible new modes of resource access and discovery. It also supports reuse and visualization of collections in novel ways. This program will introduce participants to linked open data in the real world through both introductory and intermediate level presentations on its application, including challenges inherent to moving towards a linked open data ecosystem.
Potential topics include:
  • Implementation of linked data project
  • Metadata analysis and evaluation
  • Linked open data visualizations
  • Entity reconciliation
  • Ontology alignment/mapping
