Day 5: Workshops, 10:30am-12:00pm and 1:30-3:30pm: Linked Data (in-person, Pipitea Room)
A gentle introduction to linked data concepts (see also semantic web or knowledge graphs). What is linked data and why is it relevant? How does it work and who is using it? How can I query a knowledge graph. How is Wikidata relevant to libraries, and what applications should I know about? Participants will benefit from an internet connected device with web browser, with some exercises involving some light typing. No programming is required. The workshop is not Koha specific.
