Linked Data and Libraries 2011 was held at the British Library Conference Centre in London on Thursday, July 14, 2011. Below find a selection of sessions and slideshows.
View the afternoon session below, or view the morning session here.
On the day of the conference, the British Library also introduced their new approach to publishing the British National Bibliography using linked data practices. Users can now preview the first subset of the LOD BNB, including books published or distributed in the UK since 2005, via the search service, the describe endpoint, and the SPARQL endpoint. Below are slides from a presentation by Neil Wilson, who heads the British Library’s Metadata Services, outlining the process behind creating the library’s LOD model.
Play with example records of an organization and a publication from the BNB preview, or check out the data model. To view more slides from Linked Data and Libraries 2011—including contributions from the Library of Congress and the University of Münster—visit the conference’s resource page.
