This paper describes Linked Data and how the "Web of Documents" can be transformed into a "Web of Data". This approach is contrasted with the limited opportunities for linking data in traditional MARC-based bibliographic records. It includes a brief explanation of LD principles and standards, then explains how data can be embedded into HTML in several RDF serializations.

- Expresses data in serializations such as RDF/XML, N-Triples, Turtle, N3, Trig, JSON-LD, and RDFa.
- Knows HyperText Markup Language, or HTML (1991+), as a language for "marking up" the content and multimedia components of Web pages.
- Understands that Linked Data (2006) extended the notion of a web of documents (the Web) to a notion of a web of finer-grained data (the Linked Data cloud).
- Understands RDF serializations as interchangeable encodings of a given set of triples (RDF graph).
