LD4 Conference on Linked Data: July 19-23, 2021
Pre-Conference workshops and tutorials: July 19
Sessions begin on July 20th
We’re excited to announce that registration for the 2021 LD4 Conference is open! Join us virtually on July 19-23, 2021 to learn concrete ways that linked data benefits GLAM institutions, and discover pathways to participation in linked data. The conference is free to attend: choose one session or many!
Whether you have already implemented linked data in your work or are just getting started, you will leave with a better understanding of what linked data is, how it can be used, and what you can do to get started or continue to incorporate linked data in your institutions or projects. By bringing together a broad range of perspectives, and centering diversity, equity, inclusion, and ethics in our discussions, we will create a community of practice for linked data in libraries.
We are delighted to have Jessica Meyerson and Lauren Klein as our conference keynotes. Other program highlights include panel sessions with the LD4 steering committee and the Library of Congress, workshops and tutorials on Sinopia and Wikidata, LD4 affinity group meetings, and many opportunities for learning, brainstorming, and engaging with linked data.

We hope that you’ll join us!
