The web is changing from a web of documents to a web of data; from a web that can be read by humans, to one that can be read by machines. These fascinating advances are changing both the nature of the web and the way we access information. They also provide a host of opportunities for librarians to those wanting to shape the information landscape of the future.
This comprehensive introduction to the Web of data and the semantic Web highlights ways information professionals are using these new technologies to disseminate information. Key content areas include:

• Open data
• The semantic web and embedded semantics
• Data silos
• Libraries and the Web of data
• The future of the librarian and the semantic Web

Facilitating Access to the Web of Data is an indispensable guide for anyone helping to facilitate access to the Web.
