Linked Data for Libraries Users Group forming

As a result of a successful Linked Data Summit held in March 2017, MCLS is facilitating 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. A steering committee is being formed, and Andrea Kappler, Cataloging Manager for the Evansville Vanderburgh Public Library in Evansville, IN, has agreed to chair the fledgling committee.

Andrea is currently seeking additional steering committee members and input on the group’s future activities. If you are interested in participating in the users group either as a member or a leader, please fill out this brief survey BY SEPTEMBER 8. An initial virtual meeting of the group will be held on October 4 at 11am Eastern (10am Central) to discuss the results of the survey and set a course for action. Details for joining the virtual meeting will be forthcoming.

Thank you to Andrea for taking the lead!
