'New OCLC Position Paper Articulates the Value of Linked Data to the Library Community'

OCLC announced the following:

OCLC, the worldwide leader in library cataloging and metadata services, has released ‘Linked data: The future of library cataloging,’ a position paper that articulates the value that linked data can bring to library catalogs, and the tools already available to help ease libraries into creating a more interconnected experience for information seekers.

The brief, 12-page paper follows OCLC’s path from decades of linked data research, to experiments and prototypes, the creation of more than 150 million WorldCat Entities, and, most recently, to the web application and APIs now available through OCLC Meridian that libraries can use to get started.

For more information, read the press release.
