Reminder: SLA-Georgia Spring Meeting & Luncheon June 28th: “Introduction to Linked Data for Librarians”

Reminder to RSVP by Monday, June 25th. See below for details!

You’re invited to the Special Libraries Association Georgia Chapter spring meeting and luncheon at the Hudson Grille Midtown on Thursday, June 28th, 11:45am-1:00pm. Our guest speaker, fellow SLA-Georgia member Cliff Landis, will explain what linked data is and how libraries are taking advantage of this technology.

Introduction to Linked Data for Librarians
Linked data is fundamentally changing how people will access information in the future, and you’re already using it! In this session, you’ll see how Google, Wikipedia, and the Library of Congress are using linked data to connect metadata worldwide. Explore how libraries and archives are using linked data to visualize relationships between historical figures and to improve visibility for underrepresented groups. Wrapping up, you will discover how you can make a few small edits to your organization’s website and catalog to improve both findability and outreach using linked data.

Cliff Landis is Digital Initiatives Librarian at the Atlanta University Center Robert W. Woodruff Library in Atlanta, Georgia. Cliff’s research interests include information organization, digitization, linked data, archival technology, metadata, user-centered service, assessment, and the co-evolution of humanity and technology.

This exhibition tells the remarkable story of the Iraqi Jewish experience and provides a vivid and unparalleled record of Baghdad’s Jewish communal life from the end of the Ottoman era to the early 1970s. In both English and Arabic, the 2,000 square foot exhibition features 23 recovered original artifacts and a “behind the scenes” video of the preservation process. Participants will also get a unique behind-the-scenes tour of the museum’s library and archives by Jeremy Katz, Archives Director of the Cuba Family Archives for Southern Jewish History at the Breman Museum.

Starting at 6:00pm, we’ll have time for food and networking with a selection of Middle Eastern cuisine from Dolce Catering. Exhibition and archives tours will begin at 6:30pm.
