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.

- Knows the "five stars" of Open Data: put data on the Web, preferably in a structured and preferably non-proprietary format, using URIs to name things, and link to other data.
- 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).
