The University of Minnesota Libraries is one of 17 cohort institutions participating in the Mellon-funded Linked Data for Libraries (LD4P): Pathway to Implementation grant project. At last year's LibTech conference, presenters provided background on the LD4P project, and gave a preview of what the linked data editor might look like. This presentation will provide updates on the project at large, and U of M's participation. It will include a live demonstration of the Sinopia metadata editor, and include information about our efforts to contribute University of Minnesota-affiliated researcher data to Wikidata. We will also include a discussion on what the future of LD4P and linked data might be, as the current phase of the grant project nears its end.
