Facilitating Access to the Web of Data

Chris Mavergames said the following about the new Facet book Facilitating Access to the Web of Data by David Stuart:

‘All in all, Stuart has produced a must-read for any library or information professional (or anyone working in the delivery, structuring and organization of information via the web, which includes a whole host of other folks). Without getting mired in technical details, but yet providing enough for the uninitiated to get a “flavour” for what’s involved, there is enough here to sink one’s teeth into and links to other resources for further reading to expand on the concepts introduced in this work. I highly recommend it!’

Mavergames is an Information Architect at the Cochrane Collaboration in Freiburg, Germany.  The full review can be read on his website which is also an excellent resource for librarians interested in web 2,0 and linked data.

More information about the book, including the table of contents and a free sample chapter can be found on the Facet website.
