Getting in the Game: Three Free Tools that Take You From Flat Data to RDF

Susan Jane Williams, Independent Cataloging and Consulting Services

Greg Reser, Metadata Librarian, UC San Diego (Embedded Metadata and the Info Panel tool)
Matthias Arnold, Heidelberg Research Architecture - Visual Resources, University of Heidelberg (CSV to Core 4 XML Transform tool)
Jeff Mixter, Software Engineer, OCLC Research (Core 4 XML to RDF Transform tool)  

Three free desktop tools (or transforms) have been developed recently. They provide means to embed metadata into images and export them to CSV, transform flat CSV data into VRA Core 4 XML, and transform VRA Core 4 XML into RDF. The three developers will demonstrate each tool, and guide the participants through the use of the tools. A step-by-step sequence will take the users from embedding metadata in images and then CSV (comma separated values) export (alternatively participants can start with their own metadata CSV or Excel file) to VRA Core 4 XML and then to RDF. At each stage there will be discussion of workflows and what data is needed to form validating XML and useful RDF. Users may bring their own local data samples (say 50-500 records) saved in CSV (or Excel) for discussion.

Maximum Participants: 20

Fee: $35
