Virtual Library: City of Edinburgh

Public libraries in the UK have been subject to severe budgetary restrictions.  This post discusses how the City of Edinburgh is using technology to connect people to the library collection in innovative way.  Of particular interest to us is the City’s efforts to link data through one portal, which is something we have discussed in the course. This type of project is an example of how linking data serves to not only maintain and promote the relevance of libraries, but to provide clients with an integrated approach to finding relevant and timely information.
