The following program is part of ALA President Jim Rettig’s “Grassroots
Program” initiative, and so is not listed as either an ALCTS or a LITA
program. However, it should be of interest to members of both Associations!
You are cordially invited to attend the following presentation at the ALA
Annual Conference in Chicago:
From Legacy Data to Linked Data: Preparing Libraries for Web 3.0
Monday, June 13th, 8:00-10:00 AM Hilton Lake Ontario Room
How can library cataloging data be transformed to function within “Web 3.0”
and be understood by non-library web applications? Speakers from both the
library and Semantic Web communities will explore the situation in a
non-technical manner and describe current work underway to transform legacy
library data into linked data.
