Linked Data and Libraries: What? Why? How? (NCompass Live)

On Wednesday, January 11, 2012, 10-11:00 a.m. Central Time NCompass Live presents the webinar Linked Data and Libraries: What? Why? How?
In October of 2011, the Library of Congress released a statement outlining its efforts to move away from the MARC 21 format and toward another carrier for library data. According to the statement, “Linked Data principles and mechanisms” will be the focus of this project. You may be wondering, what is Linked Data? What could it mean for our library catalogs? How do we create Linked Data? In this session, Emily Nimsakont, the NLC’s Cataloging Librarian, will answer those questions and more.

Will this be achieved somewhere? I'd be interested in listening to it.
