In the past few years, the amount of data published on the Web based on the Linked Data principles for publishing and connecting structured data on the Web has increased dramatically. Linked data best practices are now ready to be followed by a relevant number of data providers, leading to the creation of a global data space: the Web of Data. In such a context the Florence Seminar intends to focus on interoperability and open linked data in libraries, analysing standards, experiences and best practices for adopting semantic web technologies in this area.

Such paradigm of data enrichment and interconnection offers solutions to many of the actual library issues, like enhanced web searching, authority control, classification, data portability and disambiguation. In this context the Seminar’s purpose is to outline the benefits of linked data for libraries, while offering suggestions on practical ways in which libraries can participate in the development of the semantic web. The participation of different stakeholders, reflecting the actual trend in enhanced exchange of data, should ensure new market opportunities, the development of publishing and dissemination models, together with a fruitful exchange of professional experiences.
