In this session we will focus on ResourceSync, a contemporary, standardized, web-based framework to expose all kinds of resources (not just metadata) for a wide variety of use cases. We will briefly outline ResourceSync's capabilities and discuss some of its current use cases. These include resource discovery in IIIF-compliant systems, resource synchronization for Hydra-in-a-box and other repositories, aggregation of scholarly articles into the CORE repository, and the replication of evolving Linked Datasets. The session is aimed at managers, developers, and technologists that are working on digital library or repository projects and are interested in resource discovery, harvesting, and synchronization protocols. Attendees will gain a solid understanding of how ResourceSync can support the interoperability between library systems.
