In May 2010, CLIR/DLF, in partnership with the British Library, held a Global Digital Libraries Linked Data workshop to better understand the Semantic Web and envision its application in a library context. By the end of the workshop, it was clear that there was a great need for a coordinated effort to continue exploring the impact Linked Data will have on libraries, as well as demonstrative projects. Open Linked Data is a complex concept that requires many conversations to successfully seed and mobilize efforts within the library, archives, and museum communities.
