Zepheira to keynote Ohio Library Council Technical Services Retreat

The Ohio Library Council is the statewide professional association which represents the interests of Ohio’s public libraries as well as their trustees, Friends and staffs. The Keynote for this years technical service retreat on Apr 21 in Columbus, Ohio will be Eric Miller, co-founder and president of Zepheira.

This Keynote will provide an overview of the Web as a Linked Data platform and discuss the evolving technical, social, and policy trends that are shaping the application of these technologies (such as BIBFRAME) by the Library community. This talk will further demonstrate practical uses of these technologies and demonstrate how they may be used to lower costs; accelerate collaboration beyond our traditional community walls; and provide new ways which public libraries in Ohio can leverage the Web to support more effective end-user discovery, sharing, curation, and reuse of credible information.
