Hot Topic: Metadata Transformation Basics

Tuesday, 24 July '18   10am – 12pm PDT
Innovative’s Virtual Classroom


Linked data — A moment of library opportunity. A path for moving beyond aging metadata infrastructures into the¬ digital lives of the communities we serve. But what is linked data? And how can it help us transition out of MARC and onto the semantic web? How do we start to design a plan for our individual libraries to make this transition? Join Martha Rice Sanders, Senior Consultant at Innovative, along with her fellow Innovative Library Consultants for an introductory survey of linked library metadata and how early adopters are using it in their libraries. Walk away prepared to lead discussions in your library and start the move out of the catalog and into increased engagement and improved user experiences.
