A203: Web Driven Revolution for Library Data

1:30 p.m. - 2:15 p.m.
Richard Wallis, Technology Evangelist, OCLC

Many believe that the web’s influence on libraries is limited to social networking interaction and the design of discovery interfaces. However, the way the web now handles metadata is driving fundamental changes in our world, changes that will revolutionize the processes that underpin metadata management, sharing, and cataloguing. The symptoms have been visible for some time—linked data, web ad- dressable authority files, search engine knowledge graphs, BibFrame—but we are now starting to see the effects in moves toward the management of entities and away from cataloguing individual records. Wallis explores the issues and describes the impacts and benefits for library resource visibility on the web, and internal library workflows.
