Guest webinar: Linking to the Future: the University of Minnesota and the Linked Data for Production Project

Mar 11, 2019

Linked Data for Production (LD4P) is a multi-year, Mellon-funded collaborative project to create infrastructure and best practices for the creation, migration, and discovery of library metadata in an RDF-based format. For phase 2 of the project, the LD4P partners issued an open call for libraries to join a cohort that will begin to produce linked data in a sandbox developed in cooperation with the PCC (Program for Cooperative Cataloging).

The University of Minnesota Libraries’ successful proposal focuses on the cataloging of artists’ books and fine press materials.

My colleagues and I attended the November Amigos virtual conference Innovating with Metadata. The conference opened with a keynote address by Amanda Sprochi about the new International Federation of Library Associations (IFLA) Library Reference Model (LRM) and how it will have a major impact on RDA (Resource Description and Access).
