RDF and LOD in Use Today

This session will be recorded

Previous sessions have dealt with RDF (Resource Description Framework) and LOD (Linked Open Data) as introductions and overviews of the topic; while it is still early days in terms of adoption, this session will highlight actual applications of RDF and LOD in use now. (4 speakers, 15-20 min each plus Q&A)   Julia Simic, moderator and presenter  Julia will talk about her work in migrating data from CONTENTdm to Hydra (converting to RDF,) including creating URIs for local terms not covered in other controlled vocabularies.  Jeff Mixter will talk about research applications currently in development at OCLC.  Rob Sanderson will talk about his work with IIIF (International Image Interoperability Framework) which provides interoperability in the use of images and image viewers by a set of common APIs including using LOD links to retrieve image details (rather than using proprietary zooming software).  Cory Lampert, University of Nevada, Las Vegas will talk about their Linked Open Data Project, a 2012 study which resulted in practical implementation and data transformation guidelines, workflows and tools, including visualization tools.

My passion is helping libraries share and disseminate their knowledge, services and products with people around the world. The web is fundamental in this process and to that end my current work involves helping libraries be more visible on the web. This includes not only making their data visible but also making themselves visible on the web.
