The SWIB conference (Semantic Web in Libraries) is an annual conference focusing on Linked Open Data (LOD) in libraries and related organizations. It is held in Germany, by turns in the Cologne region and Hamburg.

These areas of focus are supplemented by presentations of research projects in applied sciences, industry applications, and LOD activities in other areas. SWIB mainly targets IT staff, developers, librarians and researchers.

“Date/Time: April 21, 2016 from 2:00pm to 3:00pm ET
Please join us for a 60 minute ACRL-Choice Webinar presented by Rowman & Littlefield.

Libraries must change their practices and transform their role to maintain centrality in the evolving university environment. Forces confronting university libraries include the shift from print to digital documents, the evolving nature of the scholarly record, the economics of information, and the demographics of the profession. To adapt, libraries must consider the library as place and the retirement of print collections. They must develop the capacity to preserve digital content, reposition the library in the information marketplace, and define the library’s job in the age of the smart machine. This webinar presents concrete steps academic libraries should take to advance their place on campus.
