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. His website is http://clifflandis.net/.
