Our aim is to explain linked data in the context of library and information management. The webinar will cover:

  *   The ‘basics’ - what linked data is and why it is important
  *   Linked data’s role in modern web services
  *   Linked data’s potential as a tool for libraries and information managers
  *   How linked data can be used
  *   Relevance of linked data to RDA cataloguing.

If you cannot attend the live presentation, each registered participant is given 30 days’ unlimited access to the webinar recording, to view (or re-visit) at your convenience.

LRM in a Nutshell

We have also had a number of requests to repeat our first webinar, LRM (Library Reference Model) in a Nutshell – which explains the new conceptual model that forms the basis for RDA’s upcoming changes. Lynn Farkas Information Services is happy to announce that we will provide special access to this webinar recording until the end of January 2019. Please contact farkastraining at gmail.com for details of cost, and access instructions. Access to this webinar will require prepayment, so the sooner you contact us the longer you will have to view the webinar.

Helen and I look forward to your attendance at these webinars.

Kind regards,

Lynn Farkas, Director
