As a founding sponsor, Zepheira's introduction of the *Libhub Initiative
<http://www.libhub.org/>* creates an industry-wide focus on the collective
visibility of libraries and their resources on the Web. Libraries and
memory organizations have rich content and resources that the Web can not
see or use. The *Libhub Initiative* aims to find common ground for
libraries, providers, and partners to publish and use data with
non-proprietary, web standards. Libraries can then communicate in a way Web
applications understand and Web users can see through the use of enabling
technology like Linked Data and shared vocabularies such as schema.org and
BIBFRAME <http://www.loc.gov/bibframe/>. The *Libhub Initiative* uniquely
prioritizes the linking of these newly exposed library resources to each
other and to other resources across the Web, a critical requirement of
increased Web visibility.

In this webinar, Eric Miller will talk about the transition libraries must
make to achieve Web visibility, explain recent trends that support these
efforts, and introduce the Libhub Initiative -- an active exploration of
what can happen when libraries begin to speak the language of the Web.


*Eric Miller* is the President of Zepheira <http://zepheira.com/>. Prior to
founding Zepheira, Eric led the Semantic Web Initiative for the World Wide
Web Consortium (W3C) at MIT where he led the architectural and technical
