Linked Data in Libraries

About the 2021 LD4 Conference on Linked Data in Libraries

Participate in the conference to learn concrete ways that linked data benefits libraries and related institutions, and discover pathways to participation in linked data. By bringing together a broad range of perspectives, and centering diversity, equity, inclusion, and ethics in our discussions, the conference seeks to create a community of practice for linked data in libraries.

The conference will take place online July 12 through July 23, 2021.
