This multi-state event will take place online and in-person at both Indiana Wesleyan University, Indianapolis North Campus and Lansing Community College, West Campus. Speakers and participants will interact in-person and remotely.

The morning will feature an overview and update in Lansing on the Library of Congress BIBFRAME pilot project presented by Beacher Wiggins (Director for Acquisitions and Bibliographic Access, Library of Congress) and a presentation from Indianapolis delivered by Jeff Penka (VP of Product at Zepheira) on the implications for libraries.

Afternoon sessions will include presentations from:

* Michigan State University Library on how they are preparing staff for the Linked Data environment - Lansing

* Andrea Kappler of the Evansville Vanderburgh (IN) Public library on their experience converting their MARC catalog data to BIBFRAME/Linked Data for publishing on the Web. The presentation will also cover how the library attempted to measure the impact of Linked Data on library services and collection usage. - Indianapolis

* Indiana State Library on their Evergreen Indiana Linked Data project - Indianapolis

* MCLS and the Library of Michigan on their MeLCat Linked Data project - Lansing

This summit is an opportunity for librarians to explore the possibilities of what a fully integrated Linked Data world means for libraries and our communities. This event will also provide updates and presentations exploring what is already happening to make that possibility a reality.
