|Interest in LODLAM||
LOD is changing the way IFLA standards are published and made available for use in the broader community. The linkage back to IFLA relevant communities is something I am particularly interested in and can contribute to. I see my attendance as related specifically to my ongoing work with the IFLA FRBR Review Group.
|Linked Open Data Projects||

In addition I represented BAnQ on the Linked Open Data Working Group of the PCDHN (Pan-Canadian Documentary Heritage Network), the group that developed the ""Out of the Trenches"" proof-of-concept. Will be giving a presentation on this (with Sharon Farnel of Uof Alberta) at the Canadian Library Association conference May 30, 2013 (not up on the web yet).
