Keynote presented at the International Association of University Libraries Conference (IATUL), 20 June 2017 in Bolzano, Italy.
Library metadata was created to describe objects and enable a reader to understand when they had the same or a different object in hand. Now linked data concepts and techniques are allowing us to recreate, merge, and link our metadata assets in new ways that better support discovery - both in our local systems and on the wider web. Tennant described this migration and the potential it has for solving key discovery problems.
