Linked In: Library Data and the Semantic Web
Join us for our exciting program at ALA Annual
Linked In: Library Data and the Semantic Web, MCC 398 Saturday, June 25, 8am-10am
Librarians are fascinated by the potential of the Semantic Web, but it is hard to see how we transition out of MARC with so much legacy work and so much money tied up. Ross Singer and Eric Hellman will provide demonstrations of databases using RDF and MARC XML to make library data more web-friendly. The program will make the Semantic Web seem less futuristic and more immediate to our profession.
We'll follow this 90-minute discussion with a short Interest Group meeting. Hope you'll stick around to help plan for the rest of 2011 and 2012!
