The state of structured data in Evergreen: 2.6 edition

Posted on Sat 22 March 2014 in Libraries

Yesterday at the 2014 Evergreen International Conference I presented Structured library data: holdings, libraries, and beyond--a talk about the work I've done specifically with Evergreen and making some of the connections with Koha and VuFind's capabilities. Lots of attendees seemed happy with the talk and the direction that we're going with Evergreen, and have hope for the future relevance of our libraries' resources within normal search engines, as well as all of the possibilities opened up by exposing this open data about our libraries (locations, hours, branch relationships, contact informatoin) and their resources in a much more consumable form.

There was so much energy in the room, I could have talked for another hour... I love the Evergreen community!
