Linked Data Users Group

Linked Data for Libraries Users Group

Update for March 2020: The Linked Data for Libraries Users Group will reschedule the next all-Users Group meeting to sometime in fall 2020. Please check this page for future updates.

As a result of a successful Linked Data Summit held in March 2017, MCLS facilitated the formation of a multi-state Linked Data for Libraries Users Group. The purpose of the group will be for libraries to discuss the latest developments in Linked Data for libraries, share experiences, explore new products, and raise awareness.
