Abstract

Linked Data has become an important issue, not only for the process of building the web of data, but also for the mutual knowledge transfer between libraries and the web of data. Based on a study concerning Linked Open Data applications in libraries and the qualifications of future librarians involved in the development of such applications, we built a one day training program for academic librarians. The overall goal was to make librarians literate and heighten awareness concerning the Linked Open Data technology on a single day. With the help of that training program, the librarians should become cognitively able to reflect on the integration of Linked Data in their current working environment. We considered it therefore necessary to couple the training program with the development of cognitive strategies. In this paper we will give an in-depth description of the didactical approach, the theoretical and practical components as well as their possible combinations.
