A couple of weeks ago I made a short presentation at a linked data session at the American Association of Law Libraries (AALL).

At the time, I was intrigued by [...]

Yesterday I did a long program for NELINET, entitled “Trepidation or Anticipation?: The Future of Cataloging and Catalogers.” This topic has been a theme of mine for some time, and I’d been invited to do this program after doing a similar, though shorter, one at the Massachusetts Library Association in the spring.
