DCMI-AsiaPac regional workshop in Singapore: 'RDA, DC and Linked Data'

DCMI-AsiaPac will hold a regional workshop in Singapore on 15 August 2013 as part of the DCMI Regional Meetings Series. The theme for the one-day workshop will be "RDA, DC and LOD" and will be comprised of two half-day seminars. The Workshop will be held the day before the IFLA IT Section's conference on "User interaction based on library linked data" on 16 August. IFLA WLIC itself will run from 17-23 Aug 2013. Through the Workshop, the organizers intend to raise the awareness among librarians in the Asian region on the implementation of RDA and how library metadata (specifically DC) can be exposed as linked data to improve visibility and enhance collection usage. The objective is also to build confidence among Asian librarians to work well in the digital arena and be comfortable enough to adopt new technologies that will help improve their libraries' services. A secondary objective is to build a community for the DCMI Asia Task Group where regular discussion on metadata matters can be established. More information about the workshop is available at
