About the Event

Since 2014, Cornell University Library (CUL) has been collaborating with Harvard and Stanford Universities on Linked Data for Libraries (LD4L), an Andrew W. Mellon Foundation funded initiative to model and produce library data as linked data. In this talk, Kovari will review the efforts undertaken in LD4L and discuss on-going work at CUL to further model and produce library data as linked data, including leading a community effort for a rare materials ontology extension, testing native RDF original cataloging and experimenting with cross-collection authority creation and maintenance using a local triplestore.

About the Presenter

Jason Kovari serves as Head of Metadata Services at Cornell University Library; in this role, he directs the efforts of the metadata unit and consults on metadata issues for a wide variety of projects, including those of discovery, data modeling, preservation and linked data.
