Abstract

Linked Data, long an emerging trend, is beginning to approach maturity. The gradual shift from the realms of library research and development into more mainstream production operations in cultural heritage institutions is starting to produce accessible tools and techniques, consensus around best practices, and an ever growing list of practical use cases. This keynote will explore the background and current state of LODLAM, with a focus on tools, techniques, use-cases and end-user facing applications. Potential vendor roles, both for Ex Libris products and more broadly, will be discussed along with user-group community efforts to bring the output of linked data research and open source development into the suites of tools available as off-the-shelf library discovery and metadata management solutions.
