DCMI Webinar: Two-Part Series on with Richard Wallis

Wednesday, October 21, 2015

Join independent consultant Richard Wallis, former Technology Evangelist for OCLC and currently working with Google on, for this two part, in-depth webinar mini-series look at titled " in Two Parts: From Use to Extension". The webinar series examines the use of and its extension in the bibliographic and wider domains. Part 1 of the series titled "Fit For a Bibliographic Purpose" on 18 November 2015: (a) traces the history of the vocabulary, plus its applicability to the bibliographic domain, and (b) the Schema Bib Extend W3C Community Group--why it was set up, how it approached the creation of bibliographic extension proposals, and how those proposals were shaped. The second more technical webinar in the series on 2 December 2015 explains the extension mechanism for external and reviewed/hosted extensions, and their relationship to the core vocabulary. Wallis will take an in-depth look at, demonstrate, and share experiences in designing, and creating a potential extension to the vocabulary. He will step through the process of creating the required vocabulary definition and examples files on a local system using a few simple tools, then sharing them on a publicly visible temporary cloud instance before proposing to the group.
