Mikko Lappalainen, development manager from the National Library of Finland, shared experience on "Linked Open Data as the bridge to a shared cultural heritage? Finnish experiences in adopting LOD practices in libraries and beyond". In the past five years, the National Library of Finland has been promoting the use of linked data technologies and practices to further the use and reuse of library data and strengthen the role of libraries in the digital age. Various organisations have adopted Finto's ontologies in the past few years, but ironically libraries have been lagging. The big idea behind the "ontologisation" of vocabularies is to build a national infrastructure of linked LOD vocabularies that could help make all public sector materials more semantically interoperable. Finto also develops the General Finnish Ontology YSO (based on an old library thesaurus YSA) and coordinates the national ontology work of the whole Finnish public sector.
