Linked Data: Zepheira Announces First Four Participating Libraries in New “Experimenter” Program
Following the success of its Early Adopter program with 12 participating public libraries in the US and Canada, Zepheira is pleased to announce the first four participants in its Experimenter Program.
This program builds awareness of the power of Linked Data through education and training, provides an assessment of the institution’s MARC data, and develops a pilot to experiment with publishing Linked Data to the Web. Upon discovery of library materials, users are automatically redirected to the Library’s PAC or Discovery Layer for further action.
The new participants include:
- Cedar Rapids Public Library (Iowa)
- Mohawk Valley Library System (New York)
- Southern Adirondack Library System (New York)
- Westchester Library System (New York)
The Experimenter program remains open to new participants through October 16th and runs through June 30, 2016.
Details about the Experimenter Program are available here.
