Despite the concept of Linked Data being over ten years old, it has yet to make a practical impact in the library world. Libraries prize standards and best practices, but there is no clear leader in the field and many Linked Data implementations appear experimental or isolated. Nonetheless, stakeholders in Sweden, Norway, the United States of America, and Australia are working to integrate Linked Data into the open-source library management system Koha. There are many challenges, but developers are collaborating globally to overcome them.
