Linked Open Data SIWG
At the IGeLU 2011 annual conference in Haifa, on September 12, 2011 a session βLinked Open Data and Ex Libris Productsβ took place. The purpose of this session was drawing the attention to the subject of linked open data in libraries using existing Ex Libris library systems. A number of cases of publishing and consuming linked data using Aleph and Primo were presented in four talks. A list of recommendations for library systems vendors and Ex Libris in particular was delivered asking Ex Libris for their vision. Ex Libris articulated and demonstrated their interest at that session and the Linked Open Data Special Interest Working Group was established thereafter.
