This presentation was held at the World Library and Information Conference 2012 in Helsinki. It is a companion to the position paper by Jürgen Kett et al. (http://nbn-resolving.de/urn:nbn:de:101-2012052306) which discusses the requirements on a national bibliography in the 21st century. The paper argues that a national bibliography needs to integrate itself into the World Wide Web, since this is where information exchange takes place today. This should be made using linked data technologies and the data should be published under an open license. As a case study, we present the work done at the Deutsche Nationalbibliothek, where circa 70% of the database is already published as linked open data.
