The 23 Linked Data Things project organizers are pleased to announce that Things 16-19 are now published and available on the website. Thing 16 is guest authored by Annie Larson (College of Saint Benedict and Saint John's University) and explores the public services side of linked data. Thing 17 looks at the Social Networks in Archival Contexts project. Thing 18 walks you step-by-step through the process of setting up your own Wikibase and is guest authored by Jackie Rubashkin and Joe Cera (Berkeley Law Library, University of California, Berkeley). Finally, Thing 19 asks you to think more broadly about some of the pitfalls to the overall adoption of linked data in libraries.

About 23 Linked Data Things
23 Linked Data Things is a free self-paced online learning program that provides a structure for investigating linked data projects and obtaining hands-on experience in creating linked data. It is designed for library staff who want to learn more about linked data principles and explore how linked data can transform the way we think about metadata.
