Linked Data is recognized as one of the underpinnings for open data, open science, and data-driven research and learning in the Semantic Web era. Questions still exist, however, about what should be expected as Linked Data related knowledge, skills, and learning outcomes, and where to find relevant learning materials. This webinar will introduce a competency framework that defines the knowledge and skills necessary for professional practice in the area of Linked Data, developed by the Linked Data for Professional Educators (LD4PE) project and funded by the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS).
DCMI is pleased to announce that the three keynote speakers for this year's conference (colocated with TPDL2018) will be Natalia Manola, Herbert Van de Sompel and Medha Devare. All three are leading figures in their areas, and together will undoubtedly provide a variety of engaging and, in some cases, challenging viewpoints!
We are pleased to announce that DCMI's annual international conference, DC-2018, will be hosted by the University of Porto in Portugal, from September 10th - 13th.
We are also pleased to announce that the conference will be co-located with the Theory and Practice of Digital Libraries (TPDL) annual international conference
The conferences will deliver two, parallel programmes of peer-reviewed papers, tutorials and workshops. Delegates will register once, and will then be free to choose between the two programmes, with some plenary sessions (keynotes) and social events bringing all delegates together.
For a single registration you will be able to choose from a range of talks, workshops and tutorials!
update: Branka Kosovac will join Joseph Busch in presenting this webinar
DCMI is pleased to announce a new webinar: Save the Children Resource Libraries: Aligning Internal Technical Resource Libraries with a Public Distribution Website.
2017 has been a year of transition, with Stuart Sutton stepping down after six years at the helm of DCMI as its Managing Director. He has been succeeded by Paul Walk.
DCMI would like to extend its gratitude to Stuart for his tremendous service, during a challenging period. Stuart is known for his warmth and generosity, which combined have made so many people feel welcomed into the DCMI community.
