On Thursday, February 23, 2012, over 140 people attended a morning plenary focused on linked open data for libraries, archives, and museums in New York City. The morning plenary and afternoon hands-on session were co-organized by METRO, NYPL Labs, and NYU, and featured the following:
A Panel Discussion and Q&A with Todd Carter (Tagasauris), Corey Harper (NYU Libraries), Evan Sandhaus (NY Times Research & Development) Seth van Hooland (Université Libre de Bruxelles), Erik Mannes (Ghent University - IBBT), and Rebecca Guenther (Library Consultant, formerly Library of Congress).
- “Free Your Metadata - Why it matters”: presentation by Seth van Hooland (Université Libre de Bruxelles) on the importance of metadata quality and the possibilities offered by vocabulary reconciliation.
