You may have heard about the Semantic Web, Linked Data, BIBFRAME and the Web of Data. There are many conversations about how these efforts will reveal the wealth of library resources to its users and help them make previously undiscovered connections. The 2015 Library Edition of the Horizon Report predicts that in two to three years, there will be widespread adoption of the Semantic Web and Linked Data technologies in academic and research libraries.
What does this all mean? And more importantly, what does it mean for academic libraries and your communities? How can you participate in this paradigm shift?
Please join us for Zepheira’s upcoming Webinar especially geared for Academic library professionals.
