innovation in metadata design, implementation & best practices

DC-2012 pre-conference semantic metadata tutorials

The two DC-2012 full-day pre-conference tutorials will each provide information professionals with beginning knowledge and skills necessary to design and development of semantic metadata including design of ontologies and controlled vocabularies useful in linked data on the open Web. The tutorials will also focus on design of metadata application profiles to meet an organization or company's needs to publish to the open Web using OWL and topic maps ontologies. Presenters Karen Coyle and Sam Oh have extensive experience teaching and working with professionals practicing in all forms of memory institutions (libraries, museums and archives) as well as the private sector. The tutorials are designed to address the needs of professionals with either minimal technical skills or those with extensive skills in non-semantic metadata wanting to develop knowledge and skills in the context of linked data and the Semantic Web.
