Representatives from CNI member organizations gather twice annually to explore new technologies, content, and applications; to further collaboration; to analyze technology policy issues, and to catalyze the development and deployment of new projects. Each member organization may send two representatives. Visit https://www.cni.org/mm/fall-2017 for more information.

Linked Data for Libraries and (Metadata) Production (LD4L/LD4P)

The Mellon Foundation-funded projects Linked Data for Libraries (LD4L) Labs and Linked Data for (Metadata) Production (LD4P) began in April 2016 as joint two-year follow-ons to the initial Mellon-funded LD4L project. LD4L Labs is a partnership led by Cornell together with Harvard, Iowa, and Stanford. LD4P is a partnership led by Stanford together with Columbia, Cornell, Harvard, Library of Congress, and Princeton. The overall goal of these projects is to make it easier for libraries and their users to create, use, and benefit from linked data, both linked data specifically designed for libraries and scholars, and broader sources of linked data on the web. In this briefing, we will report on the progress made by these two projects during their first 18 months. Topics include: discussion of the bibliotek-o bibliographic ontology and how and why it both extends and varies from BIBFRAME; a brief report on the metadata production pilots at the six LD4P partners; VitroLib, an ontology-driven linked data creation and editing tool; tools and services to provide lookup for linked-data authorities from multiple sources; and a report from the LD4P/LD4L Labs Community Input Meeting, held April 24-25, 2017 at Stanford University.
