Are you curious what Linked Open Data can do for our libraries and our patrons? Do you wonder if it’s the next best thing or just a fad? Come join us (and bring your lunch!) for a presentation and discussion about Linked Open Data. Jim Cross and Jessica Serrao will share what they learned at the Society of American Archivists conference, including a crash course on what Linked Open Data is and use cases from other institutions. Following will be an open discussion on what this means for Clemson Libraries and the future of discovery and reuse of library and special collections data.


This presentation was given at a Clemson University Libraries brown bag lunch on October 29, 2018. It presented to library colleagues what was learned about linked open data at the 2018 Society of American Archivists Annual Conference in Washington, DC held August 12-18, 2018.
