Presentation Title: Metadata: the Key to Linking Data
Presenters: Dick Miller, Thea S. Allen and Joanne Banko from Lane Medical Library, Stanford University.
Description: This session will feature real-life applications used by Stanford University's Lane Medical Library staff to use metadata to link data within the catalog and library website, which helps the user utilize both seamlessly. We will show how the work behind the scenes helps those on the front end search, identify and find information sought, as well as ways in which metadata and linked data can be used in the future.
