This free webinar explores the concept of Linked Data, a powerful tool that can make all of your library's assets (materials, events, programs, databases and services) discoverable in local web searches, casting the widest net for library outreach. It takes a look at how Linked Data is being used in other industries, including the benefits it brings, and also discusses why it has been difficult to bring it into practice the library world. Additionally, attendees learn about how using Linked Data, especially to promote programs and events, can help your library become an increasingly relevant and necessary asset in your community.
