Are you baffled by BIBFRAME? Overwhelmed by ontologies? Or feeling turmoil about Turtle? Then this workshop is for you. Learn the practical foundations of Linked Data with a particular focus on serials in this one-day workshop. The presenters will go beyond just talking about RDF triples and actually break down linked data technology and how its application can be utilized for serials. Topics to be covered:

  •     Linked Data 101
  •     Ontology Basics
  •     Turtle Tutorial
  •     BIBFRAME
  •     Other ontologies for libraries
  •     CONSER Standard Record to BIBFRAME 2.0 Mapping
  •     Current hot topics in serials and linked data
Attendees are strongly encouraged to bring a laptop. The presenters will be demonstrating online linked data tools that attendees will have the opportunity to use, and the workshop will include hands-on exercises working with ontologies and creating linked data descriptions of serials.
