Moderator: Laura Dawson, Product Manager, Identifier Services, ISNI/Bowker/ProQuest
Speaker: Jenn Riley, Associate Dean, Digital Initiatives, McGill University Library
Speaker: Karen Yoshimura, Program Officer, OCLC
Speaker: Nannette Naught, VP, Strategy & Implementation, Information Management Team (IMT), Inc.
Speaker: Steven Folsom, Discovery Metadata Librarian, Cornell University

Current discussion puts undue emphasis on the philosophy and technology of linked data. Yes, it's cool and demands to be played with. And yes, the library community is late to the party. But what is required for success besides an interesting idea?

Join us to explore ontology design and data modeling in the real world. Learn about the people, processes, metrics, and yes the technology, needed to succeed.

This preconference is intended for Non-IT library staff that have a general understanding of linked data, and are ready to engage further in learning and applying data modeling concepts that are central to using/creating linked data in a production environment. Some knowledge of XML and HTML will be assumed (although not required).

Greetings--Just curious as to when/where the notes and slides will be available to attendees. I've searched around and not been able to find them on my own. (I do have Jenn Riley's, as she provided the location in her talk.)

Thank you so much,
