Previous presentations on linked data have promoted the attitude of "if you publish it, they will come." How do we know our linked data is being used by others? How do we justify the effort spent to create the linked data? How are institutions publishing linked data evaluating the use of their data, specifically use by non-library entities? Panelists from institutions currently publishing linked data will attempt to answer these questions and provide insight into how they are defining the value of publishing linked data.
