Dashboard

The Community of Practice maintains a “Linked Data Development in Ex Libris Products” Dashboard at https://docs.google.com/document/u/1/d/e/2PACX-1vSYlQCkfBM-6jqAYUruFRVwk672OBeKG0c7CpwmIBtyw0QTpyJKiL4ORY3dtie9XpW1DB-IcnjLzOc1/pub which lists the current or proposed LOD developments in Ex Libris products. It is regularly updated. So for up to date information it is a good starting point.

The group recently wrote a report about URIs in Ex Libris Products, which can be viewed here: http://documents.el-una.org/2097/

We also run Town Hall meetings during the year. These are recorded to allow access to them in various time zones. You can find them under the Events link from the LOD CoP front page.

Town Hall Meetings

The last Town Hall meeting which took place on April 28 2022 was titled: URIs in Ex Libris Products. See our previous Town Hall meetings on YouTube (https://www.youtube.com/c/IGeLUandELUNAShowTell), Linked Open Data Playlist. Please keep an eye on the Events page for upcoming meetings.
