Metadata/linked data and semantic web expert, Karen Coyle (she’s also an award winning author), has published an informative item on her blog for anyone wanting to learn more about linked data. The post comes a few weeks before Coyle participates in the RDA and the future of library metadata webinar. Three part series (one session per week, a different speaker each time) begins on May 11th. Karen speaks about the semantic web and why libraries need to be a part of it on May 18th.
The blog post “Visualizing Linked Data” has Karen using the Open Library (an INFOdocket favorite) and the Virtual International Authority File, These sources, “can present authors in a Semantic Web form.”
