Subject: [BIGDATA] Data In Libraries: The Big Picture

Registration is now open for
Data In Libraries: The Big Picture<http://www.lib.uchicago.edu/conferences/ifla2016-data-in-libraries/>
a satellite pre-conference to the IFLA 2016 WLIC.

The one-day program will take place on August 10, 2016 and is hosted by the University of Chicago Library.

The modern, digital library has moved beyond its traditional focus on metadata, bibliographic, and authority data, and now manages or works with a broad set of data types, leveraging an ever-expanding set of tools and techniques to do so.  Those new tools also mean that even traditional data logs can be analyzed to improve the services librarians and libraries offer.  The emergence of linked data has simultaneously created a broad spectrum of new use cases for library data.  This conference will draw the "big picture" of library data, examining the full spectrum of library activities, and attempting to assess what is achievable using new data technologies in libraries.

There is no fee to attend this satellite session thanks to generous sponsorship from  EBSCO, OCLC and ExLibris.  However, space is limited to 100 attendees and pre-registration is required.
