Linked Open Data Working Group Update:

The Linked Open Data Working Group held a business meeting at IGeLU 2019, including a presentation by Itai Veltzman on the linked data vision and roadmap for native linked data editor capabilities in Alma, which we are very excited about.  The presentation should be posted on the Knowledge Center soon.

Working Group co-chair Xiaoli Li and member K. T. Lam gave a presentation, Linked Data in Alma : URIs and BIBFRAME Conversion of MARC Tag 880  on issues related to URIs generated (or not generated) by BIBFRAME and how they could be resolved, URIs generated by Alma, and some issues related to Alma authority control, which we hope to work with the Alma Product Working Group to address. 

We continue to ask all customers to send us your ideas, use cases and “user stories” for ways you envision linked data working for your institutions.  You can find out more about it here:
