The Linked Open Data Special Interest Working Group is involved in testing and critiquing linked data conversion, raising complex questions such as how RDA and the IFLA Library Reference Model will be supported, and in connecting with other groups such as the PCC Task Force for URIs in MARC and others. We started discussions on the Linked Data Roadmaps and on what actions Ex Libris could take to increase experimentation with and adoption of linked data features in ways that bring value to customers.  

Those interested in the activities of the Linked Open Data SIWG are encouraged to join the mailing list at . If you want to be involved in the development testing and discussions you may also join our Basecamp – send an email to LOD WG Coordinator Laura Akerman, liblna[at] requesting to be added.
