DC-2014 post-conference workshop: 'Training the Trainers of Linked Data'

Tuesday, July 22, 2014

DCMI and the Texas Digital Library invite you to register for this day-long, hands-on "Training the Trainers of Linked Data" post-conference workshop to be held on Saturday, October 11, 2014. Linked Data has gained momentum, and practitioners are eager to use its principles to derive more value from metadata. Available handbooks and training materials focus on an audience with a computer science background. However, people with a non-technical education find it hard to understand what Linked Data can mean for them. This full-day, hands-on workshop will provide an overview of methods and case studies from the handbook "Linked Data for Libraries, Archives and Museums" (2014, ALA/Neal-Schuman). Using freely available tools and data, this workshop will teach you how to clean, reconcile, enrich, and publish your metadata. Participants will learn about concepts, methods, and tools that they can use on their own, or to teach others within their own institutions, to get more value from metadata.
