Library Linked Data Model is an important topic for librarianship and it is equally of interest to the many organizations that provide products and services to that community. Ex Libris, as one of those organizations, frequently gets asked: “Where do we see it fitting into our plans?”. In order to be able to answer questions like this, we need to ask: “What exactly are the problems being solved for the profession by this technology that can only be solved with the Library Linked Data model?” What most developers/providers of products analyzing the potential of library linked data would see is that at this stage, this technology is very much in the research stage. The presentation talks about the research ExLibris is involved in and how this can be utilized by innovative libraries to help defining the actual use cases in which the potential of the Library Linked Data Modell is indeed exploited.
