About the session

In an age where information is vast and interconnected, libraries must adapt to the dynamic landscape of knowledge organization and access. The second session of the Open Perspectives Forum 2024 focuses on "Open Linked Data in Libraries," a powerful concept that has the potential to revolutionize information discovery and exploration.

Embracing open standards and interoperability principles, open linked data allows libraries to create a network of interconnected data, breaking down information silos and enriching the search experience for users. Imagine seamlessly navigating across various information resources, connecting disparate pieces of knowledge to unlock deeper insights and understandings.

During this session, experts will shed light on the key benefits of implementing open linked data in library systems and catalogs. They will share examples of successful collaborations between libraries and other institutions to create a global network of interconnected data. However, we will also address the challenges libraries may encounter during the adoption process and how these challenges can be effectively addressed.

Join us in this exploration of open linked data's potential to create a collaborative knowledge landscape that benefits researchers, students, and the broader public. Together, let's pave the way for more accessible, interconnected, and insightful knowledge discovery within libraries.
