Linked data in the library

This presentation is a brief introduction to acknowledge the understanding of linked data, which yields hope to link separate objects in a meaningful way. The topic and potential of linked data has been hotly debated and very exciting. However, the implementation of linked data is a complex and costly process, which triggers people to think “whether it’s the kingdom of structured data or an irritating buzzword.”Answering this question, technically and theoretically bringing down the understanding barrier towards linked data, this presentation will be very useful to you. I’m going to outline some difficult problems linked data is faced with. I will talk about what have been done with it so far and what influence it exerts on you as well. There is no need for you to be a web developer or a profes
sional cataloger. As long as you can open up a web page, you may understand. Anyway, hope it
will be a useful presentation that would encourage you to think, to guess, to smile, and make things
easier a little bit.
