Venue: Bibliothèque nationale de France, Paris, Site François-Mitterrand

During the past few years, libraries have started experimenting with Linked
Data technologies: releasing open data in RDF, merging and aggregating

datasets, creating prototypes, proofs of concepts and new applications for
their end users, providing data services for developers inside and outside
the library domain. Linked Data has been advocated both as a powerful
vehicle to help libraries enter the Web and a new interoperability
framework which could encourage convergence with other domains and
communities such as archives and museums. The promise is also to make
library online services more attractive : search engines may be able to
link into library catalogues, making thereby much more easy to find
entries, books, publications, etc. New library models and standards such as
FRBR and RDA are now inspired by RDF and their latest developments
encompass the paradigm of the triple.

With the technology becoming mature, it is more than ever necessary to

build a Linked Data community in libraries, in order to share not only

data, but also tools, lessons learnt and demonstrated benefits of this

technology to end users. This one-day event aims at bringing up actual

realizations and demonstrating how Linked Data can maximize the benefit of
library data for the community at large. The goal of this event is to
encourage professionals who have started implementing semantic web projects
in libraries to share their feedback and best practices from a real life
perspective (and not only from a pure advocacy / experimental angle) with
those who are willing to do the same, and also facilitate networking and
possibly new projects between them.

This event targets participants ranging from three profile types of

     motivated librarians interested in Linked Data but not very
knowledgeable yet (beginners),
     confirmed digital curators and IT librarians who want to get more
in-depth, practical, hands-on experience in development (advanced),
     managers, middle-managers and decision-makers.

We are also interested in having participants and speakers from companies
and contractors who have experienced working on Linked Data projects with
libraries, not so much from the perspective of promoting a specific product
or service, but to share their own vision and feedback in implementing such
projects with cultural organizations at large. Dedicated tracks combining
plenary sessions, panels and tutorials should accommodate the interests of
all participants.

Issues will include technology, architecture and formats of course, but
also economic, legal and organizational challenges - all the aspects which
need to be taken in consideration to make innovation "happen".

Relevant topics may include:

     feedback on experiments with publishing and linking library data,
     creation of new services based on library linked data,
     institutional, regional or global partnerships derived from linked data
     recommendations and experiments with the use of library standards in
RDF,-use cases and use scenarios based on library linked data,
     linked data and open data, licensing issues,-reaching out to other,
related communities, e.g. publishing, search,
     organizational issues such as training, skill development or funding.

Two types of submissions will be considered:

     full papers: between 1500 and 3000 words. Full papers will be granted
30 minutes presentations and will be published in full on the conference
Website according to IFLA rules,
     short presentations: between 200 and 500 words. Short presentations
will be granted 15 minutes presentations and slides and abstract will be
published on the conference Website.

The language of the conference is English.

By submitting a paper or presentation, you guarantee that at least one of
the authors will attend the conference and present the paper or
presentation. No funding will be provided by IFLA nor BnF for attendance.

Submissions should be made via Easychair at the following address :

Programme committee co-chairs: Emmanuelle Bermes, Centre Pompidou and
Gildas Illien, Bibliothèque nationale de France

Deadline submission for full papers and short presentations: March 8. 2014
Notification of acceptance: May 9. 2014
Final version of full papers: June 28. 2014
Workshop date: Aug.14. 2014
