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.
