|Cataloging: Linked Data and Bibframe in Context|
Event Type: SWFLN Webinar|
Start Time: 11:00 AM
End Time: 12:00 PM
This session will introduce the concept of linked data and why it is significant, explain the Bibframe data model and the current state of Bibframe, and explain how linked data and Bibframe are related. We will look at Library of Congress’ Bibframe proof of concept sinopia.io, speculate on how a Bibframe/linked data environment might change our current work, and introduce some activities that allow users to contribute to linked data initiatives now.
Participants will be able to recognize the concepts of linked data, resource description framework, and the Bibframe abstraction levels and core classes. Participants will have the information necessary to consider how they might contribute to linked data initiatives.
Academic Library staff will be interested in this workshop because it provides insights into possible future workflows and how RDA 3R fits into that workflow.
Public Library staff will be interested in this workshop because it provides insights into how linked data can expose books in a series.
School Library staff will be interested in this workshop because it provides a look at how we might be working with catalog records in the future.
Special Library staff will be interested in this workshop because it provides some ideas for linked data initiatives that may be useful in highlighting collections.
