The promise of Linked Data offers a rich network of information for the end user, making collections more discoverable throughout the wider web community. For the content provider, anticipated benefits include greater visibility, higher ranking in search engine results, and the opportunity to create new applications, not only on existing content, but the content of others.
In this 90-minute webinar, you'll learn how Elsevier, a commercial content provider in the STM realm, and OCLC, a library member cooperative, have implemented Linked Data, and how the contexual differences have impacted the way in which each organization has chosen to implement Linked Data. Michael Lauruhn and Ted Fons will discuss:
• The visible and measurable results of their work with Linked Data.
• Realized user benefits, and streamlined processes for the user experience.
• Costs versus return on investment.
• Implementation challenges, pitfalls, and lessons learned.
Join us on Thursday, August 28, to learn more about Linked Data, the value to content providers, and insights gained along the way.
