OC selected </li></ul><ul><li>Articulating the link between ISAD(G), Linked Data, Open Metadata and faceted searching </li></ul><ul><li>Aim to test the value of Linked Data – does it improve searching; does it speed up data input and editing; does it enhance or supplant indexing? </li></ul><ul><li>Questions include: how to deal with subject terms (use UKAT – out of date?); which URI scheme to use? How will the user benefit – what are the tangible, demonstrable gains? </li></ul><ul><li> </li></ul>
