Building Bridges is an immensely important theme: bridges connect communities, connect ideas, connect generations and practices. But they need to be built with caution. Although bridges can create a safe pathway through unsettling times, they can allow us to distance ourselves from the cause of that turbulence. The realities of the Sematic Web, disruptive innovation, and social justice are shaking our world.   They cannot and should not be avoided. How can libraries, especially Technical Services, fold these emerging concepts into the core of what they are and what they do?

Philip Schreur is currently the Associate University Librarian for Technical and Access Services at Stanford University.  He earned a PhD from Stanford in Medieval music theory and an MLIS from the University of California, Berkeley.  Philip has been the Chair of the Program for Cooperative cataloging and deeply involved in the implementation of the new cataloging rules Resource, Description and Access (RDA) in the United States. With a mid-career move to HighWire Press, he developed an interest in the automated taxonomic analysis of digital texts.  Currently, he is in charge of coordinating linked-data project development for the Stanford University Libraries (SUL).  Initial areas of interest include the use of linked data as a mechanism for identity management across traditional resources and those within the digital library, the integration of linked data from disparate sources, and the transition of traditional technical services workflows to processes rooted in linked open data.
