NSK scientific symposium: “Library Data: Interoperability, Linking and Exchange”
The National and University Library in Zagreb (NSK) is organising and hosting Library Data: Interoperability, Linking and Exchange, a scientific symposium that will be held on 28 and 29 November 2017 as part of a regular annual open conference bringing together users of the NSK integrated library system and the representatives of Croatian research and academic libraries.
The programme of the symposium is intended for information professionals and librarians in all types of libraries, regardless of a library software that they use or the degree of automation or computerisation in their libraries. Its purpose is to prompt as wide as possible a professional debate concerning this aspect of library activities and bring attention to new insights in relation to issues concerning the significance of automation, standardisation and computerisation in library operations, provide opportunities for the exchange of experiences among partakers and stakeholders in this area, and present examples of good practice resulting from widely and comprehensively using ICT and digital technologies in library operations.
The symposium’s programme will address the following themes:
– interoperability and library systems: data, semantic, process and legal interoperability,
– exchange and reuse of library data,
– finding, identifying and linking of library data: identifiers, linked open data, semantic web;
– libraries and disruptive technologies,
– implementation and development of standards, formats, regulations and models,
– library automation and computerisation, systems librarianship,
– contemporary library services based on library data: library catalogues, union catalogues, discovery services,
– libraries and the Internet of Things (IoT), big data, research data.
The symposium is organised with the support of the Croatian Ministry of Culture and no attendance fee is required.
