Library linked data

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Library linked data (LLD) is the use of linked data standards by libraries. These standards are usually applied to bibliographic and authority data sets with the hope of decreasing redundant cataloging work; and increasing visibility of library resources and interoperability with non-library systems.[1]

Use cases[edit]

In 2010, Byrne and Goddard have written that the "killer [library linked data] example isn't out there yet," and warned that implementation work will be hampered if clear use cases don't exist.[2]

Many groups have examined this issue, including the W3C Library Linked Data Incubator Group,[3] the Bibliographic Framework Initiative,[4] and the LD4L project.[5]
