LOD: Issue 9 of Europeana Tech Features Presentations From Semantic Web in Libraries (SWIB) Conference

Issue 9 on Europeana Tech is Now Available Online.

From the Introduction/Letter From the Editors:

Every year the SWIB (Semantic Web in Libraries) is a highlight for Linked Open Data in libraries and related organizations.

Annually held in a different German city, SWIB is hosted and organized by the Leibniz Information Center for Economics and the Hochschulbibliothekszentrum des Landes Nordrhein-Westfalen. Since its conception in 2009 the programme has grown from a strictly German speaking audience to an international and diverse crowd.


This special SWIB issue of EuropeanaTech Insight sees articles from FedoraNetwerk Digitaal Erfgoed, The University of Illinois Urbana-ChampaignFinnish National Library and the German National Library of Science and Technology (TIB). It’s becoming clearer that LOD is not just being seen as a librarian and information specialists tool for experimentation but true value is being derived from this work enriching user experiences and collection contextualization. As more platforms work to integrate LOD as the standard we can only imagine what use cases and valorizations we’ll see at SWIB 2018.
