/From The Innovation Studio


Denmark’s national data well + web services = open metadata and functionality. Now we can build aps against these that allow us to enhance the public library ILS, share digital library collections like ebooks and audiobooks, and offer national library sites for users (PallesGavebod) or a national digital library (DDB). Link that up with OCLC’s WorldCat and you’ve got global, regional, national, and local contexts covered.

Collaborative? Check. Next? Innovation.

What should we do with this new capability? What are its practical uses and impacts for users? Will it be relevant in a rapidly changing world where the majority of users are not using library interfaces for discovery? Will it help local libraries and their resources become and remain visible?
This interactive session puts library professionals together with leaders in data, infrastructure, and webscale operations to devise innovations against the emerging infrastructure.
