We've had talks and sessions galore about Linked Data at code4lib in past years. Let's focus on linking. Bring data you want to publish and link to or link from and your ideas about new ways we can push data linking into being part of our regular approach to how we put our libraries' content and services on the web. At the start of the session we'll run a quick poll to see who wants to link to what and how, and we'll pair or group up and get to work from there. May a kajillion links bloom!

If you need an "intro to linked data" we can prep a good list of readings/talks to review before you come. But please come ready to link! Organizer type person: Dan Chudnov, GWU Libraries, @dchud or dchud at gwu edu
