This talk explains how LIBRIS, the National Library of Sweden's union catalog, has been linked via an interface to RDF datasets. The first speaker discusses the issue of metadata interoperability. The second speaker is interested in how libraries continually re-link vast datasets and believes that making information available to anyone is what libraries are about. He supports linking to information using technologies created and used outside the library community, whether these technologies are Web or Semantic Web.
