NISO/DCMI Webinar: Deployment of RDA (Resource Description and Access) Cataloging and its Expression as Linked Data

Wednesday, March 20, 2013

A NISO/DCMI Webinar with Alan Danskin of The British Library will be held online at 1:00PM Eastern Time (17:00 UTC) on 24 April 2013. Registration for this webinar closes 24 April 2013 at 12:00PM Eastern (16:00 UTC). A seminar at the British Library in April 2012 marked the fifth anniversary of a 2007 meeting at which representatives of the Dublin Core, Semantic Web, and RDA communities jointly recommended that the then-draft cataloging standard RDA be provided in the form of vocabularies and application profiles usable for Linked Data. One year after this anniversary meeting and one year closer to the general deployment of RDA in libraries, this webinar will take stock of progress towards developing application profiles based on RDA and discuss the practicalities of exposing RDA-based data in the Linked Data cloud.
