Semantic Web In Libraries, Nov 25-27 2013

Be sure to tune in for the Semantic Web in Libraries Conference, taking place in Hamburg Germany 25-27 November.  Workshops on 25 November will not be streamed, but sessions on 26 and 27 November will be streamed and recorded. You can follow along the Twitter hashtag, #swib13. It’s once again a great program and thanks to the streaming video is a fantastic way to tune in to the most up to date discussions on Linked Open Data in libraries and GLAMs.

From their site:

Linked Open Data (LOD) has become a widespread method for the publication and management of data on the web. Many libraries and related institutions have already run projects or launched products that comply with the LOD paradigm. New projects, services and tools are emerging continuously.

The SWIB conference aims to provide substantial information on LOD developments relevant to the library world and to foster the exchange of ideas and experiences among practitioners. SWIB encourages thinking outside the box by involving participants and speakers from other domains, such as scholarly communications, museums and archives, or related industries.

As in the years before, SWIB13 will be organized by the North Rhine-Westphalian Library Service Centre (hbz) and the ZBW – German National Library of Economics / Leibniz Information Centre for Economics. The conference language is English.
