[MCN-L] DCMI Webinar - __May 19__ (correction) Modeling Intangible Entities in the Cultural Domains for Digital Archiving Inbox

2021-05-10 Thread DCMI Announce
This webinar is scheduled for Wednesday, May 19th, 2021, 21:00 UTC and
is free (but registration required).

There are a variety of new cultural domains for which we need to
design metadata schemas. It is widely recognized that data models are
crucial to design metadata schemas – we need to identify objects for
which we create metadata. This webinar aims to present a set of
generalized data models designed for metadata about resources in
cultural domains such as intangible cultural heritage and popular
culture. The presenter will first introduce the generalized data
models and then discuss data models designed in the Media Arts
Database project and related projects in which they are involved.

Learning objectives for the webinar

* Data Modeling for Digital Archiving of Cultural Entities:
Fundamental aspects to model tangible/intangible entities in the
cultural domains for organizing them as a digital collection.

* Data Modeling for Media Arts (manga (Japanese comics), animation,
video games, new media arts and performing arts): Data models as a
foundation for metadata schema development in new cultural domains as
a case study.

* From Item-centric organization to Content-oriented organization of
metadata for digital collections: Shift in the organization for
digital collections from traditional item-centric resource
organization to content-oriented resource organization in the Internet
and Linked Open Data environments.

[MCN-L] DCMI/ASIS webinar about Data Documentation Initiative (DDI) on April 21

2021-04-07 Thread DCMI Announce
Date: Wednesday, April 21st, 2021
Tim: 14:00 UTC (convert to your local timezone [1])

Presenters:
- Jane Fry, Data Services Librarian, Carleton University
- Arofan Gregory, Independent Consultant
- Jared Lyle, Executive Director, DDI Alliance and Archivist, ICPSR,
University of Michigan
- Barry Radler, Distinguished Researcher, University of Wisconsin-Madison

The webinar will discuss the Data Documentation Initiative (DDI)
standard for describing the data produced by surveys and other
observational methods in the social, behavioral, economic, and health
sciences, with an emphasis on DDI-Codebook and DDI-Lifecycle.
DDI-Codebook is a light-weight version of the standard, intended
primarily to document simple survey data. DDI-Lifecycle is designed to
document and manage data across the entire life cycle, from
conceptualization to data publication, analysis and beyond. It
encompasses all of the DDI-Codebook specification and extends it to
more complex, linked, and longitudinal data. Based on XML Schemas,
DDI-Lifecycle is modular and extensible.

The presentation will also briefly discuss the DDI Alliance
organizational structure, as well as products currently under
development.

The learning objectives for the webinar are:

- To understand DDI-Codebook, including when and how to use it.
- To understand DDI-Lifecycle and an applied example.
- To understand how the DDI Alliance organization maintains the DDI
metadata standard.

The webinar is free for DCMI members. For further information,
including instructions on how to join as a DCMI member, see [2].

[apologies for cross-posting]

DCMI is pleased to announce the first in a new series of webinars!

Tiago Lubiana will talk about the Wikiproject COVID-19. This project is working 
to curate and organization information about COVID-19 on Wikidata and 
Wikipedia. The scale and pace of a global pandemic have highlighted issues 
around the consistent structuring of information, such as the scope of 
geographically-bound statements and the time period of outbreaks, along with 
challenges for quickly updating information on pages across multiple languages. 
The Wikiproject collaboration has created data models for relevant concepts, 
using ShEx entity schemas that can be validated via SPARQL queries. This 
webinar will introduce the Wikiproject and show examples of the data models at 
work.

Tiago Lubiana is a PhD candidate in bioinformatics at the University of São 
Paulo and curator at Mee (an information startup in São Paulo).

[MCN-L] DCMI 2020 postponed - alternative virtual event announced

2020-03-31 Thread announce
[apologies for cross-posting]

This is an important announcement regarding the DCMI 2020 International 
Conference on Metadata, Ottawa.

With regret, due to the Covid-19 pandemic and the consequent uncertainty and 
disruption which will continue for the medium term, the DCMI 2020 Organising 
Committee has taken the decision to postpone the DCMI 2020 International 
Conference on Metadata until Autumn 2021. We have now closed the Call For 
Participation for this year, and will write to those who had already submitted 
a proposal. We apologise to those of you who may have begun preparing for this, 
and trust that you understand that this is unavoidable.

Now for some more positive news! We are planning an alternative event for 
September 2020. We are calling this DCMI Virtual. This will be a programme of 
virtual, invited, moderated sessions including presentations, tutorials, expert 
panel discussions and keynotes. We will do our best to make these as 
interactive as possible, with moderated question and answer sessions.

More details will follow here soon:

https://www.dublincore.org/conferences/2020/

Our plan is to offer 2-3 hours of sessions in any one day, distributed over a 2 
week period. We intend to alternate the sessions between two different 
time-periods to cater for people in different time-zones. All sessions will be 
recorded and made available to registered delegates.

Please look out for more detailed announcements and updates in the coming days 
and we hope you can join us in what is bound to be a stimulating DCMI Virtual 
Event!

Looking further ahead - we are planning to hold the conference in Ottawa in 
2021 as we had planned to do in 2020, subject to confirmation at a later date.

And finally, looking back, a reminder that the Proceedings from the DCMI 2019 
International Conference on Metadata, Seoul, South Korea are available:

23rd - 26th September, 2019.

Since the late 1990s, the Dublin Core conference has been a major venue for 
discussions on where innovation opportunities for metadata might lie and where 
existing good practices may be consolidated. The conferences have drawn 
participants not only from universities, research institutions and LAMs 
(libraries, archives, and museums), but also from corporations and government 
agencies. Continuing the legacy of the Dublin Core conferences from the last 
two decades, the DC2019 conference seeks inspirational submissions on 
developments of innovative tools, practices, and solutions, while addressing 
theoretical, analytical, and empirical aspects of metadata.

The Organising Committee has just published the call for participation:

SESSION DESCRIPTION:

Post-truth issues are adversely affecting people all around the world. The
metadata and knowledge organization communities have a mission to help
people access information that is as objective, comprehensive and as
relevant as possible. This session is an open invitation to members of our
community to engage with these issues, contribute ideas for solutions, and
consider whether DCMI has a potential role to play in charting a path
forward.

In 2016 the Oxford English Dictionary chose ‘post-truth’ as word of the
year. Their decision was based on the proliferation of fake news stories
and misinformation that accompanied both the US national election and the
British EU referendum. On Earth Day in April 2017 thousands of people
gathered in London for a March for Science, protesting the negative impact
of post-truth culture and politics on science, research and education.

How can the metadata community engage with, and respond to, these issues?
In this session, David Clarke will describe the problem space and comment
on the issues from the perspective of knowledge organization and
information science. The session will include ample time for delegate
participation, including a discussion about how the metadata community can
get involved and contribute ideas for solutions.

SESSION PRESENTER & FACILITATOR:

*David Clarke* is a Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts, London, and an
Associate of St. George’s House, Windsor. He is cofounder and CEO of the
Synaptica® group of companies, providers of enterprise software solutions
for knowledge organization and discovery. He served on the authoring
committee of the 2005 version of the US national standard for controlled
vocabularies, ANSI/NISO Z39.19. David leads research and development at
Synaptica, including software solutions for taxonomy and ontology
management, text analytics and auto-categorization, image annotation and
indexing, and Linked Data management. He is involved in educational
outreach programs including LD4PE, the Linked Data for Professional
Education initiative of DCMI. Synaptica software solutions have attracted
numerous international awards including: Knowledge Management World
magazine’s 100 Companies that Matter in KM and Trend Setting Product of the
Year (multiple awards between 2011 and 2017). In 2016 Clarke was awarded
the Knowledge Management Leadership Award by the Global Knowledge
Management Congress.

SESSION DESCRIPTION:

All of those who are involved in scholarly communications have the same end
goal: to conduct, facilitate and/or communicate research, and have that
research be discoverable. Whether they’re funders, authors, preprint
servers, publishers, libraries, repositories; or the numerous tools seeking
to add value through search, discovery, annotation, or analyses; so many of
these organizations contribute along the way but often important details
get mistyped, misrepresented, or missed out entirely.

We all face the same problem—how to include as much useful information as
possible. This includes basic information but also license information,
funding/grant data, ORCID iDs, organization IDs, clinical trial data,
and—along the way—corrections and retractions. How can we manage the
efficient entry and use of clean and complete metadata, in a way that can
grow and permeate through other systems usable by all in the scholarly
communications chain?

We envision a future with better metadata, not only increasing
discoverability of content, but also benefiting reputation management,
attribution, discoverability, efficiency, data reproducibility and
reusability, in addition to future services that don’t yet exist!

A group of organizations (including Crossref, DataCite, ORCID, OpenAIRE,
California Digital Library, Wikimedia, OCLC among others) have come
together to rally the community around this critical issue in scholarly
communications: sharing richer metadata.

Metadata 2020 is a collaboration that advocates richer, connected and
reusable metadata for all research outputs with the understanding that:

   - Richer metadata fuels discoverability and innovation;
   - Connected metadata bridges the gaps between systems and communities;
   - Reusable metadata eliminates duplication of effort.

We seek input from librarians, publishers, aggregators, service providers,
funders, data repositories and researchers, to share user stories and
insights about the journey that metadata takes, and to help prioritize
goals and tactics for Metadata 2020. Metadata 2020 is a campaign that is
bigger than just one organization or sector, but a collective
responsibility shared by us all.

This workshop invites contributions from specialists in the librarian
community to help advance the library element of a metadata maturity model.
This element will contribute to a larger maturity model in service of the
wider scholarly communications community.

WORKSHOP FACILITATORS:

*Clare Dean*, *Community Outreach Manager, Metadata 2020*

Clare Dean is the Community Outreach Manager for the advocacy campaign
Metadata 2020, founded by a number of organizations including Crossref,

SESSION DESCRIPTION:

Linked Data for Production (LD4P) is a Mellon-supported collaboration
between six institutions (Columbia, Cornell, Harvard, Library of Congress,
Princeton, and Stanford) to begin the transition of technical services
production workflows to ones based in Linked Open Data (LOD). This first
phase of the transition focuses on the development of the ability to
produce metadata as LOD communally, the enhancement of the BIBFRAME
ontology to encompass the multiple resource formats that academic libraries
must process, and the engagement of the broader academic library community
to ensure a sustainable and extensible environment. As its name implies,
LD4P is focused on the immediate needs of metadata production such as
ontology coverage and workflow transition. The focus of LD4P is on the
identification, evaluation and adaption of existing viable tools to
immediate production needs. A related project, LD4L-Labs, focuses on
solutions that can be implemented in production at research libraries
within the next three to five years. Their efforts focus on the enhancement
and development of existing or new linked data creation and editing tools,
exploration of linked data relationships, analysis of the graph to directly
improve discovery, BIBFRAME ontology development, piloting efforts in URI
persistence, and metadata conversion tool development needed by LD4P and
the broader library community.

As part of LD4P, Stanford is leading the development of a Performed Music
Ontology and is converting four key technical services production pathways
from MARC-based to RDF-based in a project called the Tracer Bullets. In
this panel, we will discuss our work on these projects, highlighting
achievements and difficulties of current efforts, as well as plans for
future work. In this panel, we plan to discuss our work on these projects,
highlighting achievements and difficulties of current efforts, as well as
plans for future work. On the Performed Music Ontology, we will discuss our
work on extending BIBFRAME 2 with community input to better support
description of music artifacts. With regards to the “Tracer Bullets”, we
will go through the progress on our four designated end-to- end pathways:
vendor-supplied copy-cataloging (Tracer Bullet 1); original cataloging
(Tracer Bullet 2); deposit of a single item to the Digital Repository
(Tracer Bullet 3); and ingestion of a collection into the Digital
Repository (Tracer Bullet 4). We have examined each of these pathways, from
acquisition to discovery. Based on that analysis, we are converting all key
elements in those workflows to a process rooted in linked data, balanced
with the current needs and resources of the systems interacting with those
pathways. Our emphasis is on the completeness of the pathway, and we plan
for the workflows themselves to be expanded in the future to account for
additional complexities and fully leveraging the capabilities of the RDF
data models once our initial pathway has been established.

For these tracer bullet pathways, Stanford is developing parallel
processing streams. Resources flowing through these pathways will be
processed in the traditional way with MARC or MODS-based metadata. A
parallel, linked data workflow will be created for LD4P and duplicative
metadata created. This metadata currently feeds into a parallel discovery
environment so that we mimic the entire processing workflow. The metadata
can also be sent to various library vendors and programs so that they can
begin to adjust their businesses to incorporate linked data. Although this
solution requires duplicative effort, it will allow Stanford to experiment
with an alternative pathway without being dependent on the results for
discovery. It also has the benefit of testing the new pathway with actual
library resources and staff so that a true measure of effort and cost to
implement the new paradigm can be evaluated.

LD4P has completed the first year of its two-year grant and has made
substantial process on the Tracer Bullets. In our panel presentation, we’d
like to focus on five main areas:

*SESSION DESCRIPTION:*

The idea of application profile was proposed at a Dublin Core workshop in
2000 as a way to customize metadata for specific application domains,
mixing-and-matching multiple metadata vocabularies as needed, and to share
these customizations within communities of practice. This day-long event
will start with a look back at how the discourse around profiles has
evolved since 2000, then it will examine new technologies that can help us
tame the boundless sea of Linked Data with controlled metadata. This event
is sponsored by the DCMI, which participates in W3C efforts to develop
standards relevant to profiles and seeks direction for its future work, and
by LD4, a coordinated program to advance the use and utility of linked data
in research and cultural heritage organizations, especially libraries.

*We ask the following questions:*

   - Can Linked Data conceptualization and design be enhanced with metadata
   profiles?
   - How can profiles provide different views: data validation vs
   discovery, strict vs tolerant?
   - How can we express profiles for processing by machines?
   - How can we publish profiles for human consumption?

[MCN-L] DCMI Webinar: How to Design & Build Semantic Applications with Linked Data

2017-05-19 Thread DCMI Announce
PLEASE EXCUSE THE CROSS-POSTING

*How to Design & Build Semantic Applications with Linked Data*
*DCMI/ASIS Joint Webinar*

*=*
*:: Presenter:* Dave Clarke, Synaptica
*:: Time:* 10:00am - 11:15am EDT
   (UTC 14:00:00 - World Clock: http://bit.ly/Webinar-Clarke)
*:: Date: *Wednesday, 14 June 2017
*:: Registration: *http://dublincore.org/resources/training/#2017clarke
*=*

*ABOUT THE WEBINAR:*

This webinar will demonstrate how to design and build rich end-user search
and discovery applications using Linked Data. The Linked Open Data cloud is
a rapidly growing collection of publicly accessible resources, which can be
adopted and reused to enrich both internal enterprise projects and
public-facing information systems.

The webinar will use the Linked Canvas application as its primary use-case.
Linked Canvas is an application designed by Synaptica for the cultural
heritage community. It enables high-resolution images of artworks and
artifacts to be catalogued and subject indexed using Linked Data. The talk
will demonstrate how property fields and relational predicates can be
adopted from open data ontologies and metadata schemes, such as DCMI, SKOS,
IIIF and the Web Annotation Model. Selections of properties and predicates
can then be recombined to create Knowledge Organization Systems (KOS)
customized for business applications. The demonstration will also
illustrate how very-large-scale subject taxonomies and name authority
files, such as the Library of Congress Name Authority File, DBpedia, and
the Getty Linked Open Data Vocabularies collection, can be used for content
enrichment and indexing.

There will be a brief discussion of the general principles of graph
databases, RDF triple stores, and the SPARQL query language. This technical
segment will discuss the pros and cons of accessing remote server endpoints
versus cached copies of external Linked Data resources, as well as the
challenge of providing high-performance full text search against graph
databases.

The webinar will conclude by providing a demonstration of Linked Canvas to
illustrate various end-user experiences that can be created with Linked
Data technology: faceted search across data collections; pinch and zoom
navigation inside images; the exploration of concepts and ideas associated
with specific points of interest; the discovery of conceptually related
images; and the creation of guided tours with embedded audio-visual
commentary.

*ABOUT THE PRESENTER:*

*Dave Clarke* is co-founder and CEO of the Synaptica® group of companies,
providers of enterprise software solutions for knowledge organization and

*ABOUT THE WEBINAR:*

A metadata application profile (MAP) is a construct that provides a
semantic model for enhancing interoperability when publishing to the Web of
Data. With a MAP, each property is defined as an RDF vocabulary term with
the definition of domain, range, and cardinality. According to the DCMI
document "Interoperability Levels for Dublin Core Metadata", a MAP is a
construct that enhances semantic interoperability. Therefore, when a
community of practice agrees to follow a MAP's set of rules for publishing
data as Linked Open Data, it makes it possible for such data published the
LOD cloud to be processed automatically by software agents.

A MAP is therefore a construct of great importance and the existence of a
method for its development is essential to give MAP developers a common
ground on which to work. The absence of such a method leads to a
non-systematic set of MAP development activities that might result in MAPs
with less quality.

This Webinar will present Me4MAP, a method for the development of metadata
application profiles. Me4MAP was defined in the context of a PhD and is
still now being tested and refined. It is a method that is approached
through a software engineering perspective. With Me4MAP, we do not propose
a universal solution; rather, our intention is to establish a starting
point for the study and design of methods for the development of MAPs.

*ABOUT THE PRESENTER:*

Mariana Curado Malta is an Associate Professor at Polythecnic of Oporto,
Portugal and a researcher in CEOS.PP, Portugal. Currently, she is on leave
in the Laboratorio de Inovación en Humanidades Digitales in the Universidad
Nacional de Educación a Distancia in Madrid, Spain. Her research work is
framed in a project (POSTDATA), financed by a European Research Council
Starting Grant that aims to publish poetry data (and related data) as
Linked Open Data. In POSTDATA she is responsible for the semantic
modelling. Her research interests are related to methods for the
development of metadata application profiles and the quality of MAPs in
particular and metadata in general. She is the co-author of Me4MAP, a
method for the development of metadata application profiles. Mariana Curado
Malta has a PhD in Technologies and Information Systems from University of

*NKOS Workshop at DC-2017: Call for Participation*

The 11th U.S. *Networked Knowledge Organization Systems (NKOS) Workshop* will
take place on Saturday, October 28 as part of DC-2017
 in
Crystal City, VA (Washington, D.C.). Proposals are invited for
*Presentations* and *Demos*.

*Important Dates:*

*Submission deadline:* Friday, June 30, 2017
*Notification of acceptance:* Tuesday, August 15, 2017


*Submission:*

For more information and to submit a proposal, please visit the NKOS Call
for Participation at
http://dcevents.dublincore.org/IntConf/index/pages/view/nkosCall on the
DC-2017 website.

*Workshop Themes:*

*Research Data Management (RDM).* NKOS welcomes presentations that focus on
the knowledge organization issues related to controlled vocabularies, name
authority, taxonomy, and other KOS to enable access to collections, e.g.,
in order to be able to replicate scientific results. What are the KOS
requirements related to data storage and preservation; and communication,
coordination and collaboration to support librarian and researcher needs?

*Aggregation.* The objective of linked open data is to provide distributed
access to vocabularies and content that uses vocabularies. Actually using
vocabularies to aggregate distributed content is a special case that
reconstructs collections that are now dispersed. Examples include
Renaissance artist sketchbooks, natural history collections from
enlightenment humanists, etc.

*Metadata Enrichment.* This theme relates to reusing existing metadata
sources and adding additional controlled vocabularies, name authority,
taxonomy, and other KOS to create new resources. E.g., building a new data
resource based on selecting content from the Code of Federal Regulations
and enriching the collection by adding new vocabularies.

*Authority Control.* How does authority control work in a global linked
data community? What agencies should and are willing to be responsible for
the names of public agencies, companies, subsidiaries, brands and
trademarks, and artists who constitute a national group based on birth
place and/or area of activity.

*Metrics and Quality.* How are controlled vocabularies, name authority,
taxonomy and other KOS quantified and qualified? What are the appropriate
dimensions of use and validation. Does Google Analytics have a role? Are
there other methods and practical applications?

*Life Cycle Management.* What is the common lifecycle of terms within
controlled vocabularies, name authority, taxonomy and other KOS? What are
the downstream impacts and best practices for handling of vocabulary
changes?

PLEASE EXCUSE THE CROSS-POSTING

*Nailing Jello to a Wall: Metrics, Frameworks, & Existing Work for Metadata
Assessment*

*DCMI/ASIS Joint Webinar*
*with **Christina Harlow**, Cornell University Library*

*===*
*:: Presenter:* Christina Harlow
*:: Times:* 10:00am - 11:15am EDT
(UTC 14:00:00 - World Clock: http://bit.ly/Harlow-2017)

*:: Registration:* http://dublincore.org/resources/training/#2017harlow
*===*

*ABOUT THE WEBINAR:*

With the increasing number of repositories, standards and resources we
manage for digital libraries, there is a growing need to assess, validate
and analyze our metadata - beyond our traditional approaches such as
writing XSD or generating CSVs for manual review. Being able to further
analyze and determine measures of metadata quality helps us better manage
our data and data-driven development, particularly with the shift to Linked
Open Data leading many institutions to large-scale migrations. Yet, the
semantically-rich metadata desired by many Cultural Heritage Institutions,
and the granular expectations of some of our data models, makes performing
assessment, much less going on to determine quality or performing
validation, that much trickier. How do we handle analysis of the rich
understandings we have built into our Cultural Heritage Institutions'
metadata and enable ourselves to perform this analysis with the systems and
resources we have?

This webinar sets up this question and proposes some guidelines, best
practices, tools and workflows around the evaluation of metadata used by
and for digital libraries and Cultural Heritage Institution repositories.
What metrics have other researchers or practitioners applied to measure
their definition of quality? How do these metrics or definitions for
quality compare across examples – from the large and aggregation-focused,
like Europeana, to the relatively small and project-focused, like Cornell
University Library's own SharedShelf instance? Do any metadata assessment
frameworks exist, and how do they compare to the proposed approaches in
core literature in this area, such as Thomas Bruce and Diane Hillmann's
2004 article, "The Continuum of Metadata Quality"? The Digital Library
Federation Assessment Interest Group (or DLF AIG) has a Metadata Working
Group that has been attempting to build a framework that can be used
broadly for digital repository metadata assessment - the state of this
work, and the issues it has raised, will be discussed in this webinar as
well. Finally, how does one begin to approach this metadata assessment –
what tools, applications, or efforts for performing assessment exist for
common digital repository applications or data publication mechanisms?

This webinar hopes to provide some solutions to these questions within
existing literature, work, and examples of metadata assessment happening
'on the ground'. The goal is for webinar participants to walk away prepared
to handle their own metadata assessment needs by using the existing work
outlined and being better aware of the open questions in this domain.

*ABOUT THE PRESENTER:*

*Christina Harlow* works on metadata operations for the Cornell University
Library. This work involves building out data infrastructure, ETL (extract
transform load) functions, and Linked Open Data usage in service of
distributed metadata management for Cornell's library repositories and
systems.

*ABOUT THE WEBINAR:*

There is a growing interest in the publication and consumption of data on
the Web. Government and non-governmental organizations already provide a
variety of data on the Web, some open, others with access restrictions,
covering a variety of domains such as education, economics, e-commerce and
scientific data. Developers, journalists, and others manipulate this data
to create visualizations and perform data analysis. Experience in this area
reveals that a number of important issues need to be addressed in order to
meet the requirements of both publishers and data consumers.

In this webinar we will discuss the key challenges faced by publishers and
data consumers when sharing data on the Web. We will also introduce the W3C
Best Practices set (https://www.w3.org/TR/dwbp/)to address these
challenges. Finally, we will discuss the benefits of engaging data
publishers in the use of Best Practices, as well as improving the way data
sets are made available on the Web.

*From MARC silos to Linked Data silos? Data models for bibliographic Linked
Data*

*===*

*ABOUT THE WEBINAR:*

Many libraries are experimenting with publishing their metadata as Linked
Data to open up bibliographic silos, usually based on MARC records, to the
Web. The libraries who have published Linked Data have all used different
data models for structuring their bibliographic data. Some are using a
FRBR-based model where Works, Expressions and Manifestations are
represented separately. Others have chosen basic Dublin Core, dumbing down
their data into a lowest common denominator format. The proliferation of
data models limits the reusability of bibliographic data. In effect,
libraries have moved from MARC silos to Linked Data silos of incompatible
data models. There is currently no universal model for how to represent
bibliographic metadata as Linked Data, even though many attempts for such a
model have been made.

In this webinar, you’ll see:

   - a survey of published bibliographic Linked Data, the data models
   proposed for representing bibliographic data as RDF, and tools used for
   conversion from MARC records
   - an analysis of different use cases for bibliographic Linked Data and
   how they affect the data model
   - recommendations for choosing a data model

We also present efforts at the National Library of Finland to open up our
bibliographic metadata, including the national bibliography Fennica, the
national discography Viola and the article database Arto, as Linked Data
while trying to learn from the examples of others. We are setting up a
conversion process from MARC records to BIBFRAME and Schema.org compliant
RDF, which we are going to publish as Linked Data using various
technologies including a SPARQL endpoint, HDT compressed RDF dumps and a
Linked Data Fragments API.

*This webinar is an extended, in-depth version of the SWIB16 conference
presentation ”From MARC silos to Linked Data silos?”*

*Minimum Experience Level: *

Basic familiarity of bibliographic metadata and Linked Data assumed

*NKOS Workshop: Second Call for Presentations and Demos*

*The 16th European NKOS workshop will take place on Saturday 15th October
as part of the International Conference on Dublin Core and Metadata
Applications 2016 (DC 2016) in Copenhagen, Denmark.*


*:: Submission deadline:* Friday, 8 July 2016 *(now extended!)*
*:: Notification of acceptance:* Tuesday, 16th August 2016
*:: Email proposal submissions to:* koraljka.go...@lnu.se
*:: Additional Workshop information:*

*:: DC-2016 Conference website:*
http://dcevents.dublincore.org/IntConf/dc-2016


*Proposals are invited for the following:*

a) *Presentations* (typically 20 minutes plus discussion time, potentially
longer if warranted) on work related to the themes of the workshop (see
below). An option for a short 5 minute project report presentation is also
possible.

b) *Demos* on work related to the themes of the workshop (see below).


*Please email proposals* (maximum 1000 words for presentations and 500
words for demos, including aims, methods, main findings and underlying
work, relevance to themes of workshop) to Koraljka Golub (
koraljka.go...@lnu.se). Proposals will be peer-reviewed by the program
committee. At least one presentation author needs to register for the
workshop (this is a strict requirement).


*Themes for the 16th NKOS workshop will be:*

(1) KOS Alignment. KOS alignment or terminology mapping plays a vital role
in NKOS for many years. This year we want to sort out the needs (use cases)
of KOS alignments in the new environment of Linked Open Data. We plan to
collect methodologies, best practices, guidelines and tools. This includes
manual and automatic alignments.
(2) KOS Linked Open Data. Recent years have seen an increasing trend to
publication of KOS as Linked Data vocabularies. We need discussion of
practical initiatives to link between congruent vocabularies and provide
effective web services and APIs so that applications can build upon them.
(3) Subject metadata for research data. With increasing recognition of the
need to manage research data as part of universities research output,
subject metadata represent particular challenges that need to be addressed
from theoretical as well as practical perspectives. We plan to discuss
existing issues, especially in terms of interoperability across disciplines
as well as applications, and strive towards establishment of best practices
and guidelines.

*Further timely presentations/demonstrations will be selected from the
following topics in the CfP:*

(4) KOS-based recommender systems. The suggestion of the right meaningful
concepts is a mission critical phase for searchers in modern DL.
(5) Meaningful Concept Display and Meaningful Visualization of KOS.
(6) Standards developments.
(7) Evaluation of KOS-based systems – methods and practical experience.

*KOS applications are a regular and important part of NKOS workshops.
Example topics include:*

(8) KOS in e-Research metadata contexts - intersection between research
data, KOS, Semantic web.
(9) Social tagging. What is the role of social tagging and informal
knowledge structures versus established KOS? (How) can tagging be guided
and informed by KOS?
(10) Users interaction with KOS in the online environment.
(11) KOS and learning. What is required to use KOS effectively to convey
meaning, to assist users to express their information needs to assist in
sense making and learning?
(12) Multilingual and Interdisciplinary KOS applications and tools.
(13) Specific domains, such as environmental, medical, new application
contexts, etc.

After the workshop, copies of both proposals and presentations will be made
available on both the workshop website and the DC-2016 conference website.
Submissions are subject to the DCMI copyright provisions (

***PLEASE EXCUSE THE CROSS-POSTING***

*DCMI/ASIST Joint Webinar Series in partnership with AIMS: Agricultural
Information Management Standards*

SKOS in Two Parts: Generic Tools and Methods for SKOS-based Concept Schemes


*with Joachim Neubert (ZBW Leibniz Information Centre for Economics,
Germany) & Osma Suominen (National Library of Finland)*

**
*:: Dates:* Wednesday, 16 March 2016 &

**

*ABOUT THE WEBINAR SERIES:*

In the past seven years, SKOS has become a widely recognized and used
common interchange format for thesauri, classifications, and other types of
vocabularies. This has opened a huge opportunity for the development of
generic tools and methods that should apply to all vocabularies that can be
expressed in SKOS. While expensive, proprietary or custom-developed
solutions aimed at one particular thesaurus or classification have been
dominant, now more and more open source tools are being created to deal
with various aspects of vocabulary management. In this series of two
webinars with Joachim Neubert (ZBW Leibniz Information Centre for
Economics, Germany) and Osma Suominen (National Library of Finland), we
start on 16 March 2016 with Webinar 1 by examining skos-history, a method
and toolset to nail down changes in a vocabulary. We follow with Webinar 2
on 6 April 2016 focusing on Skosmos, a full-fledged web application for
publishing SKOS vocabularies.


*ABOUT WEBINAR 1 (16 March 2016):*

Change Tracking in Knowledge Organization Systems with skos-history

When a new version of a vocabulary is published, users want to know "What’s
new?" and "What has changed?" Vocabulary managers had differing strategies
to answer these questionsrelying on internal logs of the vocabulary
management system or the intellectual collection of changes deemed
relevant. These methods generally are not available to third parties using
a vocabulary, or for example are trying to keep vocabulary mappings up to
date.

Having vocabularies published in SKOS as RDF triples has changed this
situation: Vocabularies can be compared algorithmically, and deltas between
versions can be computed. This data can be loaded into a version store, and
evaluated by SPARQL queries. Therefore, the published versions alone are
sufficient to get the differences.

The webinar will explain how you can create a version store, how
skos-history interlinks versions and deltas, and how queries can get a grip
on added or removed concepts, on changed notations, or on merges and splits
of concepts. We will show how aggregated change information about a concept
scheme can be obtained, and how the complete change history of a single
concept across multiple versions can be traced. Finally, you will learn how
you can adapt skos-history queries to the features of a particular concept
scheme in which you are interested.


*ABOUT WEBINAR 2 (6 April 2016):*

Publishing SKOS Concept Schemes with Skosmos

With more and more thesauri, classifications and other knowledge
organization systems being published as Linked Data using SKOS, the
question arises how best to make them available on the web. While just
publishing the Linked Data triples is possible using a number of RDF
publishing tools, those tools are not very well suited for SKOS data,
because they cannot support term-based searching and lookup.

This webinar presents Skosmos, an open source web-based SKOS vocabulary
browser that uses a SPARQL endpoint as its back-end. It can be used by e.g.
libraries and archives as a publishing platform for controlled vocabularies
such as thesauri, lightweight ontologies, classifications and authority
files. The Finnish national thesaurus and ontology service Finto, operated
by the National Library of Finland, is built using Skosmos.

Skosmos provides a multilingual user interface for browsing and searching
the data and for visualizing concept hierarchies. The user interface has
been developed by analyzing the results of repeated usability tests. All of
the SKOS data is made available as Linked Data. A developer-friendly REST
API is also available providing access for using vocabularies in other
applications such as annotation systems.

We will describe what kind of infrastructure is necessary for Skosmos and
how to set it up for your own SKOS data. We will also present examples
where Skosmos is being used around the world.

***PLEASE EXCUSE THE CROSS-POSTING***

Creating Content Intelligence: Harmonized Taxonomy & Metadata in the
Enterprise Context
*DCMI/ASIST Joint Webinar*

*===*
*:: Presenter:* Stephanie Lemieux
*:: Date:* Wednesday, 27 January 2016
*:: Time:* 10:00am - 11:15am EST
 (UTC 15:00:00 - World Clock: http://bit.ly/webinar-lemieux)
*:: Registration:* http://dublincore.org/resources/training/#2016lemieux
*===*

*ABOUT THE WEBINAR:*

Many organizations have content dispersed across multiple independent
repositories, often with a real lack of metadata consistency. The attention
given to enterprise data is often not extended to unstructured content,
widening the gap between the two worlds and making it near impossible to
provide accurate business intelligence, good user experience, or even basic
findability.

How do you bring all those disparate efforts together to create content
intelligence across the organization? This webinar will describe the
benefits and challenges in developing metadata and taxonomy across multiple
functional areas, creating a unified Enterprise Content Architecture (ECA).

Hear about real enterprise metadata & taxonomy harmonization projects in
different contexts, including a greeting card company, a media company, an
automotive manufacturer and a consumer food manufacturer. See how they
worked to harmonize across a number of diverse systems that supported
multiple functions, from creative processes to manufacturing to reporting.

In this webinar, you will learn:

   - how the concept of Enterprise Content Architecture unifies multiple
   disciplines, including information management, data management and content
   strategy;
   - the difference and similarities between master data and business
   metadata;
   - how enterprise-level metadata and taxonomy helps drive semantic
   interoperability and improve business processes;
   - how taxonomy can be harmonized across diverse systems and provided as
   a service; and
   - how to build support and governance for enterprise-level attention to
   taxonomy and metadata from within a project.

*Participant Experience Level:* Basic familiarity with taxonomy and
metadata assumed.

*ABOUT THE PRESENTER:*

*Stephanie Lemieux* is the President and Primary Consultant at Dovecot
Studio. She is a passionate advocate of taxonomy, search and other
marvelous pursuits in content organization. She has worked with
organizations in various industries, such as Nickelodeon, General Mills,
UPS, and the United Nations. Prior to focusing her energies on Dovecot
Studio, she was a senior consultant and taxonomy practice lead with Earley
& Associates. She speaks, blogs and writes whenever she can to help spread
the good taxonomy word. Stephanie has a Masters degree in Library and
Information Studies (MLIS) from McGill University with a specialization in

*The Metadata Summit* in Copenhagen launches DCMI's 3rd decade and provides
a forum for looking forward to new challenges and backward at challenges
met and challenges unresolved. Every year the DCMI community gathers for
both its *Annual Meeting* and its *International Conference on Dublin Core
& Metadata Applications*. The work agenda of the DCMI community is broad
and inclusive of all aspects of innovation in metadata design,
implementation, and best practices. While the work of the Initiative
progresses throughout the year, the *Conference* and *Annual Meeting* provide
the opportunity for DCMI "citizens" as well as newcomers, students,
apprentices, and early career professionals to gather face-to-face to share
knowledge and experience.

The Summit in Copenhagen will provide for public- and private-sector
initiatives beyond DCMI that are doing significant metadata work with the
opportunity to come together, to compare notes, and to cast a broader light
into their particular metadata work silos. Through such a gathering of the
metadata communities, DCMI advances its "first goal" of promoting metadata
interoperability and harmonization.

*Technical Program Submissions:*
The Technical Program includes peer-reviewed Papers, Project Reports, and
Posters. Submission to the Technical Program will span metadata research,
design, and application as a critical core value of effective information
systems across domains -- science, humanities, business, government,
cultural memory, and the professions. It will explore the domain-crossing
intersections of metadata lifecycle documentation, publication, and
management. Submissions are welcome that address the challenges of emergent
areas of metadata interest including big data and big and smart metadata.
The submissions to the Technical Program will be reviewed by an
international panel of experts.

*Submission Deadline:* 13 May 2016

Schema.org in Two Parts: From Use to Extension
*DCMI/ASIST Joint Webinar*

===
*:: Presenter:* *Richard Wallis*
*:: Times: *10:00am - 11:15am EST (UTC 15:00:00)
*:: Dates:* Wednesday, Part 1 - 18 Nov. 2015 | Part 2 - 2 Dec. 2015

*:: Part 1 Free Registration: *http://bit.ly/wallis-part1
*:: Part 2 Free Registration:* Coming soon (check Webinar Website above)
===

*ABOUT THIS 2-PART WEBINAR SERIES:*

When it was first introduced in 2011 Schema.org was seen by many as a grab,
by Google and other search engines, for the semantic web landscape, or as
something only of interest to the SEO community wanting their products
displayed more prominently in search results. It was therefore somewhat of
a surprise to the library community when, less than a year later, the
global library cooperative OCLC introduced Schema.org structured data
markup into the pages for the 300 million plus resources on Worldcat.org.

Things have changed significantly since those early days. Schema.org
structured data is now published on over 10 million web domains; the
vocabulary has expanded to include over 600 Types and nearly 1,000
Properties; it’s core capability for describing bibliographic resources has
been greatly extended. There is now a specific bibliographic extension --
bib.schema.org and, Schema.org implementations and discussions are becoming
common in the library community.

Join Independent consultant Richard Wallis, former Technology Evangelist
for OCLC, currently working with Google on Schema.org, for this two part,
in-depth mini-series look at Schema.org, its use, and extension in the
bibliographic domain and beyond.

*PART 1 WEBINAR: Fit For a Bibliographic Purpose*

*Date/Time:* Wednesday, 18 November 2015 at 10:00am-11:15am EST (UTC
15:00:00 - *World Clock:* http://bit.ly/Webinar-1_Wallis)

*Abstract:* In this first webinar in the series, Independent Consultant,
Richard Wallis, traces the history of the Schema.org vocabulary, plus its
applicability to the bibliographic domain. He will share the background to,
and activities of, the Schema Bib Extend W3C Community Group he chairs; why
it was set up; how it approached the creation of bibliographic extension
proposals; and how those proposals were shaped. He will then review the
current status of the vocabulary and the recent introduction of the
bib.schema.org and auto.schema.org extensions. Although Richard will be
using bibliographic examples, the content of this webinar will be of
interest and relevance to those in other domains, and/or considering other
extensions.

*PART 2 WEBINAR: Extending Potential and Possibilities*

*Date/Time:* Wednesday, 2 December 2015, 10:00am-11:15am EST (UTC 15:00:00
- *World Clock:* http://bit.ly/Webinar-2_Wallis)

*Abstract:* In this second more technical webinar in the series,
Independent Consultant, Richard Wallis, explains the Schema.org extension
mechanism, for external and reviewed/hosted extensions, and their
relationship to the core Schema.org vocabulary. He 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 Schema.org group.

*ABOUT THE PRESENTER:*

Richard Wallis Independent Consultant, is a distinguished thought leader in
Linked Data and Semantic Web who has been at the forefront of the emergence
of these technologies for over 20 years. He is Chair of the Schema Bib
Extend, and Schema Architypes, W3C Community Groups and evangelist for the
adoption of Linked Data in cultural heritage and the wider Web. He has an
international reputation for insightful and entertaining keynote sessions
at library, Web, and Semantic Web focused events. Currently working with
OCLC, Google, and the banking industry on the extension, application and
use of the Schema.org vocabulary; he is a pragmatist who believes in

*ABOUT THIS [RESCHEDULED] WEBINAR:*

Opening up and linking data is becoming a priority for many data producers
because of institutional requirements, or to consume data in newer
applications, or simply to keep pace with current development. Since 2014,
this priority has gaining momentum with the Global Open Data in Agriculture
and Nutrition initiative (GODAN). However, typical small and medium-size
institutions have to deal with constrained resources, which often hamper
their possibilities for making their data publicly available. This webinar
will be of interest to any institution seeking ways to publish and curate
data in the Linked Data World.

Keizer and Caracciolo will provide an overview of bottlenecks that
institutions typically face when entering the world of open and linked
data, and will provide recommendations on how to proceed. They will also
discuss the use of standard and linked vocabularies to produce linked data,
especially in the area of agriculture. They will describe AGRISAs, a
web-based resource linking agricultural datasets as an example of linked
data application resulting from the collaboration of small institutions.
They will also mention AgriDrupal, a Drupal distribution that supports the
production and consumption of linked datasets.

*Redux:* *An update of a webinar first presented in 2013*.

*ABOUT THE PRESENTERS:*

*Johannes Keizer* has worked for the Food and Agriculture Organization of
the UN since 1998, primarily as head of the FAO documentation group. The
bibliographic database AGRIS and the multilingual concept scheme AGROVOC
were completely remodeled under his leadership. In the Office of Knowledge
Exchange, Research and Extensions, he heads a staff of 20—the AIMS
(Agricultural Information Management Standards and Services) team which
provides standards, tools, and advice for FAO stakeholders. The AIMS Team
provides the technical backbone for the global Coherence in Information for
Agricultural Research for Development (CIARD) Initiative. Through EC
framework projects such as NeON, D2Science, and agINFRA, the AIMS Team has
channeled the results of innovative European research into the
international work of FAO to combat hunger and poverty in the world.

*Caterina Caracciolo*, PhD, has served as an Information Specialist at the
Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) since 2006.
Currently, she is responsible for the AGROVOC Concept Scheme, and
participates in the GACS Working Group and the Wheat Data Interoperability
Working Group (RDA). Her main interest lay in the area of semantics for
data integration and sharing, with a special focus on data specific to the
domains of agriculture, biodiversity, natural science and environment in
the broad sense. She regularly serves on program committees for
international conferences and publishes in conference proceedings and
journals in the area of semantic web and information sharing in agriculture
and biodiversity. She has worked in various EC-funded projects and also
served as Work Package leader in the NeOn and SemaGrow projects.

*ABOUT THE WEBINAR:*

The *OpenAIRE Guidelines for Data Source Managers* provide recommendations
and best practices for encoding of bibliographic information in OAI
metadata. The *Guidelines* have adopted established standards for different
classes of content providers: (1) Dublin Core for textual publications in
institutional and thematic repositories; (2) DataCite Metadata Kernel for
research data repositories; and (3) CERIF-XML for Current Research
Information Systems.

The principle of these *Guidelines* is to improve interoperability of
bibliographic information exchange between repositories, e-journals, CRIS
and research infrastructures. They are a means to help content providers to
comply with funders Open Access policies, e.g. the European Commission Open
Access mandate in Horizon2020, and to standardize the syntax and semantics
of funder/project information, open access status, links between
publications and datasets. The presenters will provide an overview of the
*Guidelines*, implementation support in major platforms and tools for
validation.

*ABOUT THE PRESENTERS:*

*Pedro Príncipe* is an information specialist at University of Minho
Documentation Services (Portugal) on the Open Access Projects Office. He
has worked since 2010 in the OpenAIRE projects and infrastructure, in
support, helpdesk and dissemination activities. He is member of the
OpenAIRE guidelines team and co-author of the OpenAIRE guidelines for data
source managers.

*Jochen Schirrwagen* is research fellow at Bielefeld University Library,
Germany. He has worked since 2008 in the knowledge infrastructure projects
DRIVER and OpenAIRE in the fields of metadata management, aggregation and
contextualization. He is co-author of the OpenAIRE guidelines for data
source managers and coordinates its further evolvement.

*Webinar Abstract: *

Being able to reliably and efficiently identify entire or subsets of data
in large and dynamically growing or changing datasets constitutes a
significant challenge for a range of research domains. In order to repeat
an earlier study, to apply data from an earlier study to a new model, we
need to be able to precisely identify the very subset of data used. While
verbal descriptions of how the subset was created (e.g. by providing
selected attribute ranges and time intervals) are hardly precise enough and
do not support automated handling, keeping redundant copies of the data in
question does not scale up to the big data settings encountered in many
disciplines today. Furthermore, we need to be able to handle situations
where new data gets added or existing data gets corrected or otherwise
modified over time. Conventional approaches, such as assigning persistent
identifiers to entire data sets or individual subsets or data items, are
thus not sufficient.

In this webinar, Andreas Rauber will review the challenges identified above
and discuss solutions that are currently elaborated within the context of
the working group of the Research Data Alliance (RDA) on Data Citation:
Making Dynamic Data Citeable. The approach is based on versioned and
time-stamped data sources, with persistent identifiers being assigned to
the time-stamped queries/expressions that are used for creating the subset
of data. We will further review results from the first pilots evaluating
the approach.

*Presenter:*

*Andreas Rauber* is Associate Professor at the Department of Software
Technology and Interactive Systems (IFS) at the Vienna University of
Technology (TU-Wien). He furthermore is president of AARIT, the Austrian
Association for Research in IT and a Key Researcher at Secure Business
Austria (SBA-Research). He is co-chairing the RDA Working Group on Data
Citation together with Ari Asmi and Dieter van Uytvanck.

He received his MSc and PhD in Computer Science from the Vienna University
of Technology in 1997 and 2000, respectively. In 2001 he joined the
National Research Council of Italy ([http://www.cnr.it/sitocnr/home.html
CNR]) in Pisa as an ERCIM Research Fellow, followed by an ERCIM Research
position at the French National Institute for Research in Computer Science
and Control (INRIA), at Rocquencourt, France, in 2002. From 2004-2008 he
was also head of the iSpaces] research group at the eCommerce Competence

[MCN-L] DCMI Webinar: Approaches to Making Dynamic Data Citable: Recommendations of the RDA Working Group

2015-03-16 Thread DCMI Announce
**Please excuse the cross postings**


*DCMI/ASIST Joint Webinar*

*Approaches to Making Dynamic Data Citable: Recommendations of the RDA
Working Group*

*:: Presenter:* Andreas Rauber
*:: Date:* Wednesday, 8 April 2015
*:: Time:* 10:00am - 11:15am EDT (World Clock: 14:00 UTC
http://bit.ly/Webinar-Andreas_Rauber)
*:: Registration:* http://dublincore.org/resources/training/#2015rauber

*ABOUT THE WEBINAR:*

Being able to reliably and efficiently identify entire or subsets of data
in large and dynamically growing or changing datasets constitutes a
significant challenge for a range of research domains. In order to repeat
an earlier study, to apply data from an earlier study to a new model, we
need to be able to precisely identify the very subset of data used. While
verbal descriptions of how the subset was created (e.g. by providing
selected attribute ranges and time intervals) are hardly precise enough and
do not support automated handling, keeping redundant copies of the data in
question does not scale up to the big data settings encountered in many
disciplines today. Furthermore, we need to be able to handle situations
where new data gets added or existing data gets corrected or otherwise
modified over time. Conventional approaches, such as assigning persistent
identifiers to entire data sets or individual subsets or data items, are
thus not sufficient.

In this webinar, Andreas Rauber will review the challenges identified above
and discuss solutions that are currently elaborated within the context of
the working group of the Research Data Alliance (RDA) on Data Citation:
Making Dynamic Data Citeable. The approach is based on versioned and
time-stamped data sources, with persistent identifiers being assigned to
the time-stamped queries/expressions that are used for creating the subset
of data. We will further review results from the first pilots evaluating
the approach.

*ABOUT THE PRESENTER:*

Andreas Rauber is Associate Professor at the Department of Software
Technology and Interactive Systems (IFS
http://www.ifs.tuwien.ac.at/ifs/frontpage) at the Vienna University of
Technology (TU Wien http://www.tuwien.ac.at/). He furthermore is
president of AARIT http://aarit.at/, the Austrian Association for
Research in IT and a Key Researcher at Secure Business Austria
(SBA-Research). He is co-chairing the RDA Working Group on Data Citation
together with Ari Asmi and Dieter van Uytvanck.

He received his MSc and PhD in Computer Science from the Vienna University
of Technology in 1997 and 2000, respectively. In 2001 he joined the
National Research Council of Italy (CNR) in Pisa as an ERCIM Research
Fellow, followed by an ERCIM Research position at the French National
Institute for Research in Computer Science and Control (INRIA), at
Rocquencourt, France, in 2002. From 2004-2008 he was also head of the
iSpaces research group at the eCommerce Competence Center
http://www.ec3.at/.

*** Please excuse the cross postings ***

VocBench 2.0:  A Web Application for Collaborative Development of
Multilingual Thesauri
*DCMI/ASIST Joint Webinar*


*:: Time:* 10:00am EST (World Clock: 15:00 UTC
http://bit.ly/DCMI-Webinar-Stellato)
*:: Presenters:* Caterina Caracciolo  Armando Stellato
*:: Date:* Wednesday, 4 March 2015
*:: Registration:*
http://wiki.dublincore.org/index.php/DCMI_Handbook/webinars#2015caracciolo


*ABOUT THE WEBINAR:*

VocBench is a web-based platform for the collaborative maintenance of
multilingual thesauri. VocBench is an open source project, developed in the
context of a collaboration between the Food and Agricultural Organization
of the UN (FAO) and the University of Rome Tor Vergata. VocBench is
currently used for the maintenance of AGROVOC, EUROVOC, GEMET, the
thesaurus of the Italian Senate, the Unified Astronomy Thesaurus of Harvard
University, as well as other thesauri.

VocBench has a strong focus on collaboration, supported by workflow
management for content validation and publication. Dedicated user roles
provide a clean separation of competencies, addressing different
specificities ranging from management aspects to vertical competencies in
content editing, such as conceptualization versus terminology editing.
Extensive support for scheme management allows editors to fully exploit the
possibilities of the SKOS model, as well as to fulfill its integrity
constraints. VocBench has been open source software since version 2 -- open
to a large community of users and institutions supporting its development
with their feedback and ideas.

During the webinar, Dr. Caracciolo and Dr. Stellato will demonstrate the
main features of VocBench from the point of view of users and system
administrators, and explain in what way you may join the project.

*ABOUT THE PRESENTERS:*

*Caterina Caracciolo*, PhD, has served as an Information Specialist at the
Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) since 2006.
Currently, she is responsible for the AGROVOC Concept Scheme, and
participates in the GACS Working Group and the Wheat Data Interoperability
Working Group (RDA). Her main interest lay in the area of semantics for
data integration and sharing, with a special focus on data specific to the
domains of agriculture, biodiversity, natural science and environment in
the broad sense. She regularly serves on program committees for
international conferences and publishes in conference proceedings and

languages, our languages of description both enable and isolate. The push
to break out of the isolation of the metadata silos in which professionals
inevitably design, implement and manage metadata in order to discover the
intersections of our treasure troves drives much of today's discourse and
emerging practice in metadata. The emergence of massively integrated Web
presences such as Europeana and the Digital Public Library of America
(DPLA) along with the reshaping of public access globally through

*Webinar Abstract: *

As a founding sponsor, Zepheira's introduction of the Libhub Initiative
creates an industry-wide focus on the collective visibility of libraries
and their resources on the Web. Libraries and memory organizations have
rich content and resources that the Web can not see or use. The Libhub
Initiative aims to find common ground for libraries, providers, and
partners to publish and use data with non-proprietary web standards.
Libraries can then communicate in a way Web applications understand and Web
users can see through the use of enabling technology like Linked Data and
shared vocabularies such as schema.org and BIBFRAME. The Libhub Initiative
uniquely prioritizes the linking of these newly exposed library resources
to each other and to other resources across the Web, a critical requirement
of increased Web visibility.

In this webinar, Eric will talk about the transition libraries must make to
achieve Web visibility, explain recent trends that support these efforts,
and introduce the Libhub Initiative -- an active exploration of what can
happen when libraries begin to speak the language of the Web.

*Presenter: Eric Miller*

Eric Miller is the President of Zepheira. Prior to founding Zepheira, Eric
led the Semantic Web Initiative for the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) at
MIT where he led the architectural and technical leadership in the design
and evolution of the Semantic Web. Eric is a frequent and sought after
international speaker in areas of International Web standards, knowledge
management, collaboration, development and deployment.

*ABOUT THE WEBINAR:*

As a founding sponsor, Zepheira's introduction of the *Libhub Initiative
http://www.libhub.org/* creates an industry-wide focus on the collective
visibility of libraries and their resources on the Web. Libraries and
memory organizations have rich content and resources that the Web can not
see or use. The *Libhub Initiative* aims to find common ground for
libraries, providers, and partners to publish and use data with
non-proprietary, web standards. Libraries can then communicate in a way Web
applications understand and Web users can see through the use of enabling
technology like Linked Data and shared vocabularies such as schema.org and
BIBFRAME http://www.loc.gov/bibframe/. The *Libhub Initiative* uniquely
prioritizes the linking of these newly exposed library resources to each
other and to other resources across the Web, a critical requirement of
increased Web visibility.

In this webinar, Eric Miller will talk about the transition libraries must
make to achieve Web visibility, explain recent trends that support these
efforts, and introduce the Libhub Initiative -- an active exploration of
what can happen when libraries begin to speak the language of the Web.

*SPEAKER:*

*Eric Miller* is the President of Zepheira http://zepheira.com/. Prior to
founding Zepheira, Eric led the Semantic Web Initiative for the World Wide
Web Consortium (W3C) at MIT where he led the architectural and technical
leadership in the design and evolution of the Semantic Web. Eric is a
frequent and sought after international speaker in areas of International
Web standards, knowledge management, collaboration, development and
deployment.

*ABOUT THE WEBINAR:*

The Learning Resource Metadata Initiative (LRMI) is a collaborative
initiative that aims to make it easier for teachers and learners to find
educational materials through major search engines and specialized resource
discovery services. The approach taken by LRMI is to extend the
schema.org ontology
so that educationally significant characteristics and relationships can be
expressed. In this webinar, Phil Barker and Lorna M. Campbell of Cetis will
introduce schema.org and present the background to LRMI, its aims and
objectives, and who is involved in achieving them. The webinar will outline
the technical aspects of the LRMI specification, describe some example
implementations and demonstrate how the discoverability of learning
resources may be enhanced. Phil and Lorna will present the latest
developments in LRMI implementation, drawing on an analysis of its use by a
range of open educational resource repositories and aggregators, and will
report on the potential of LRMI to enhance education search and discovery
services. Whereas the development of LRMI has been inspired by schema.org,
the webinar will also include discussion of whether LRMI has applications
beyond those of schema.org.

*SPEAKERS:*

*Lorna Campbell* has worked in the domain of open education technology and
interoperability standards for over fifteen years and has contributed to
the development of a number of learning resource metadata specifications.
Phil and Lorna were commissioned by Creative Commons to manage the third
phase of the Learning Resource Metadata Initiative. LRMI is co-led by
Creative Commons and the Association of Educational Publishers (AEP)--now
the 501(c)(3) arm of the Association of American Publishers.

*Phil Barker* is a research fellow at Heriot-Watt University who has worked
supporting the use of learning technology in Higher Education for twenty
years. For much of this time he has worked with Lorna M. Campbell as part
of Cetis. His work focuses on supporting the discovery and selection of
appropriate resources, and he has contributed to the development of a
number of learning resource metadata specifications. He was on the
technical working group of the learning resource metadata initiative and
has since worked on the third phase of LRMI promoting its uptake and use.

*Workshop Abstract: *

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.


*Workshop Tutors:*

*SETH VAN HOOLAND *is an Assistant Professor at the Universit#233; libre
de Bruxelles (ULB), where he leads the Master in Information Science. After
a career in the private sector for a digitization company, he obtained his
PhD in information science at ULB in 2009. He recently taught a special
course on linked data at the Information School of the University of
Washington. He is also active as a consultant for both public and private
organizations.

*RUBEN VERBORGH* is a researcher in semantic hypermedia at Ghent University
? iMinds, Belgium, where he obtained his PhD in computer science in 2014.
He explores the connection between semantic web technologies and the web's
architectural properties, with the ultimate goal of building more
intelligent clients. Along the way, he has become fascinated by linked
data, REST/hypermedia, web APIs and related technologies. He is the
co-author of a book on OpenRefine and several publications on web-related
topics in international journals.

*Session Abstract: *

Resource Description Framework (RDF) does not natively provide rules for
structuring descriptions or validating instance data. This tutorial will
present the problems of data structuring and validation in RDF. There will
be a discussion of current techniques that are being proposed as solutions
(SPIN, Data Shapes, ICV, etc.). Using examples from the cultural heritage
community (Europeana Data Model (EDM), Digital Public Library of America
(DPLA) Metadata Application Profile (MAP), etc.), speakers will present
actual cases where validation and record-like structuring is needed. It
will relate these efforts to the concept of application profiles, drawing
on some existing examples, such as Dublin Core Application Profiles (DCAP)
and BIBFRAME Profiles.

*Learning Outcomes:*

Attendees will able to:

   1. Understand why validation is a significant issue with RDF and OWL;
   and, how constraints in those languages differ from our usual concept of
   constraints;
   2. Identify and monitor today's efforts, and those in development, to
   solve this problem of validation;
   3. Describe some of the specific validation issues with cultural
   heritage data; and
   4. Articulate the issues in their own cultural heritage context.

Attendees will be encouraged to ask questions of speakers with real life
experience with linked data and the issues of validation.

*NOTE:* This tutorial is especially recommended for DC-2014 delegates new

   *Metadata Intersections: Bridging the Archipelago of Cultural Memory*
***

Metadata is fundamental in enabling ubiquitous access to cultural and
scientific resources through galleries, libraries, archives and museums
(GLAM). While fundamental, GLAM traditions in documentation and
organization lead to significant differences in both their languages of
description and domain practices. And yet, the push is on for radically
open cultural heritage data that bridges these differences as well as those
across the humanities and the natural sciences. DC-2014 will explore the
role of metadata in spanning the archipelago of siloed cultural memory in
an emerging context of linked access to data repositories as well as
repositories of cultural artifacts.

This year, the DCMI Annual Conference and Meeting of DCMI (DC-2014) is
being hosted by the Texas Digital Library and held in Austin on the
beautiful University of Texas campus. Four days of exciting sessions have
been planned. While early registration has been extended, please don't wait

*Session Abstract: *

This session will focus on establishing requirements for implementing
Application Profiles from the perspective of software developers. In
particular, our interests include the requirements necessary for performing
validation and quality checks within tools, and the extent to which
established and developing constraint languages remain valuable in our
context.

*Scope and Motivation: *

Over the last fourteen years, the DCMI community has focused much of its
efforts on the development of Application Profiles as a means to enable
reuse of properties across multiple schemas, as well as constraint
languages to express those profiles. Building on the DC-2013 special
session Application Profiles as an Alternative to OWL Ontologies
http://dcevents.dublincore.org/IntConf/index/pages/view/APaltOO, this
session will explore the requirements for defining and implementing
Application Profiles from the perspective of software developers and other
implementers. In particular, our session will focus on the requirements
necessary for performing validation and quality checks within tools, and
the extent to which established and developing constraint languages, such
as Description Set Profiles and Shape Expressions/RDF Data Shapes, remain
valuable in our context.

*Confirmed Panelists:*

   - Mark Matienzo (mark at matienzo.org), DPLA, USA (Facilitator)
   - Kevin Ford, Library of Congress, USA
   - Thomas Johnson, Oregon State University, USA
   - Eric Miller, Zepheira, USA
   - David Wood, 3 Round Stones, USA

*Open Questions Guiding the Session:*

   1. How can Application Profile-based validation provide meaningful
   feedback to a user editing a record or set of statements?
   2. From the perspective of an implementor, what do we mean by
   validation, and does this mean different things from the perspective of
   implementers building user-facing tools or automated systems to perform
   these checks?
   3. How are existing constraint languages valuable to implementers,
   particularly if the tools we are building cannot interpret or act on them
   natively?
   4. Should we prioritize developing tools that can interpret serialized
   constraint definitions, or ensuring that our tools and systems can
   serialize their constraints into one of these languages?

*Special Session Sponsors:*

   - Digital Public Library of America (DPLA)
   - DCMI Technical Board

[MCN-L] Final week to book for Making metadata work, ISKO-UK/BCS/DCMI joint event

2014-06-10 Thread DCMI Announce
Dear Colleagues,

*Making metadata work*
Monday 23rd June 2014 - BCS Office, 5 Southampton Street, London WC2E 7HA.

Please don't forget to book for this popular event before the deadline of
16 June. There are still places for the afternoon session, with an array of
first class speakers. See more  at 
http://www.iskouk.org/events/metadata_June_2014.htm#introduction.

The  morning workshop and  tutorial are already full booked. We're sorry to
disappoint anyone who's missing them, but we hope to repeat the Sharepoint
tutorial on another date - possibly 15 Sept and/or 26 November. Do please
let us know if you are interested.

*Afternoon meeting on 23 June* (Plenary, 14.00 ? 18.00)
Martin White: The importance of metadata for high quality Search
Sean Bechhofer: Wf4Ever: metadata for ?Research Objects?
Mark Sandler: Semantic Media: a new paradigm for navigable content for the
21st century
Richard Ranft: Enhancing discovery of the British Library's audio
collections
Antoine Isaac: A portrait of Europeana as a Linked Open Data case (in
progress)
Andrew MacFarlane: Analysing creative image search queries to determine
important facets

The speakers and presentations are described in more detail on our website
at  http://www.iskouk.org/events/metadata_June_2014_pm.htm. As usual
there will be more networking, wine and nibbles from 18.00.

*Morning options*
*a) Tutorial: Metadata management in Sharepoint* (10.00 -12.00)
While Sharepoint 2013 offers more metadata capabilities than ever before,
the range of options can make it hard to implement the most effective way.
Management of controlled vocabularies is a particular challenge. This
tutorial will enable you to pick the brains of an experienced consultant,
Marc Stephenson of Metataxis.
*b) Workshop: Vocabularies and the potential for linkage* (9.30 ? 12.30;
now fully booked)
Various approaches to the linkage of value vocabularies (KOSs) and/or
element set vocabularies (metadata schemas) will be described by
Pierre-Yves Vandenbussche (Fujitsu, Ireland), Dan Brickley (Google), Gordon
Dunsire and Stella Dextre Clarke, with emphasis on the opportunities as
well as the barriers to widespread adoption. After that is a case study
from Johan De Smedt and Agis Papantoniou, both of TenForce, that draws on
more than one technique. The subsequent discussion will address the
prospects for take-up, aiming to help participants with application or
development of similar techniques and projects.

*Registration fee and booking*
Full day, including lunch and a choice of tutorial or workshop: ?120 (or
?70 for members of ISKO, IRSG or DCMI and for full-time students);
Afternoon only: ?60 (or ?25 for members of ISKO, IRSG or DCMI and for

*ABOUT THE WEBINAR:*

The concept of Linked Data has gained momentum over the past few years, but
the understanding and the application of its principles often remain
problematic. This webinar offers a short critical introduction to Linked
Data by positioning this approach within the global evolution of data
modeling, allowing an understanding of the advantages but also of the
limits of RDF. After this conceptual introduction, the fundamental
importance of data quality in the context of Linked Data is underlined by
applying data profiling techniques with the help of OpenRefine. Methods and
tools for metadata reconciliation and enrichment, such as Named-Entity
Recognition (NER), are illustrated with the help of the same software. This
webinar will refer to case-studies with real-life data which can be re-used
by participants to continue to explore OpenRefine at their own pace after
the webinar. The case-studies have been developed in the context of the
handbook Linked Data for Libraries, Archives and Museums, which will be
published by Facet Publishing in June 2014 (
http://www.facetpublishing.co.uk/title.php?id=9641category_code=102).

*PRESENTERS:*

*Seth van Hooland* is an assistant professor at the Universit? libre de
Bruxelles (ULB), where he leads the Master in Information Science. After a
career in the private sector for a digitization company, he obtained his
PhD in information science at ULB in 2009. He is currently teaching a
special course on linked data at the Information School of the University
of Washington. He is also active as a consultant for both public and
private organizations.

*Ruben Verborgh* is a researcher in semantic hypermedia at Ghent University
- iMinds, Belgium, where he obtained his PhD in computer science in 2014.
He explores the connection between semantic web technologies and the web's
architectural properties, with the ultimate goal of building more
intelligent clients. Along the way, he has become fascinated by linked
data, REST/hypermedia, web APIs and related technologies. He is the
co-author of a book on OpenRefine and several publications on web-related
topics in international journals.

This event will be a showcase for the latest developments in the evolution
of the Semantic Web, exploitation of Knowledge Organization Systems (KOS),
metadata annotation to aid workflow automation, information retrieval in
networks of diverse media assets, Linked Data, and other opportunities for
using metadata. It is a Joint Meeting of ISKO UK, IRSG (Information
Retrieval Special Interest Group of BCS, the Chartered Institute for IT)
and DCMI (Dublin Core Metadata Initiative). The day will be modular:
attendance in the morning is optional, with a choice of workshop or
tutorial, while the afternoon program is for everyone.

*MORNING OPTIONS:*

*a) Tutorial: Metadata management in Sharepoint (10.00 - 12.00)*

While Sharepoint 2013 offers more metadata capabilities than ever before,
the range of options can make it hard to implement the most effective way.
Management of controlled vocabularies is a particular challenge. This
tutorial will enable you to pick the brains of an experienced consultant,
Marc Stephenson of Metataxis.

*b) Workshop: Vocabularies and the potential for linkage (9.30 - 12.30)*

Various approaches to the linkage of value vocabularies (KOSs) and/or
element set vocabularies (metadata schemas) will be described by *Pierre-Yves
Vandenbussche* (Fujitsu, Ireland), *Dan Brickley* (Google), *Gordon Dunsire*
 and *Stella Dextre Clarke*, with emphasis on the opportunities as well as
the barriers to widespread adoption. After that is a case study from *Johan
De Smedt* and *Agis Papantoniou*, both of TenForce, that draws on more than
one technique. The subsequent discussion will address the prospects for
take-up, aiming to help participants with application or development of
similar techniques and projects.

NISO/DCMI Webinar: Cooperative Authority Control

ABOUT THE WEBINAR:

Libraries around the world have a long tradition of maintaining authority
files to assure the consistent presentation and indexing of names. As
library authority files have become available online, the authority data
has become accessible -- and many have been published as Linked Open Data
(LOD) -- but names in one library authority file typically had no link to
corresponding records for persons and organizations in other library
authority files. After a successful experiment in matching the Library of
Congress/NACO authority file with the German National Library's authority
file, an online system called the Virtual International Authority File
(VIAF) [1] was developed to facilitate sharing by ingesting, matching, and
displaying the relations between records in multiple authority files.

VIAF has grown from three source files in 2007 to more than two dozen files
today. The system harvests authority records, enhances them with
bibliographic information and brings them together into clusters when it is
confident the records describe the same identity. Although the most visible
part of VIAF is a HTML interface, the API beneath it supports a linked data
view of VIAF with URIs representing the identities themselves, not just
URIs for the clusters. It supports names for person, corporations,
geographic entities, works, and expressions. With English, French, German,
Spanish interfaces (and a Japanese in process), the system is used around
the world, with over a million queries per day.

The service harvests some 30 million authority records, enhances them with
information from 100 million bibliographic records to produce a file of 20+
million clusters, each representing a person, organization, jurisdiction,
work, or expression. In addition to supporting a Web browser HTML
interface, the API to VIAF supports content negotiation for other views,
such as RDF-XML and MARC-21. Bulk dumps of the VIAF clusters are available
under the ODC-By attribution license.

The Webinar will cover some of the challenges VIAF meets in dealing with
many different formats and approaches to describing identities, the
relationship of VIAF to the source authority files, to other identity
systems such as ORCID and ISNI, VIAF's approach to sustainability,
governance and persistence, and how ambiguity is recognized and managed.

ABOUT THE SPEAKER:

Thomas Hickey [2] is Chief Scientist at OCLC where he helped found OCLC
Research. Current interests include metadata creation and editing systems,
authority control, parallel systems for bibliographic processing, and
information retrieval and display. In addition to implementing VIAF, his
group looks into exploring Web access to metadata, identification of FRBR
works and expressions in WorldCat, the algorithmic creation of authorities,
and the characterization of collections. He has an undergraduate degree in
Physics and a Ph.D. in Library and Information Science.

ABOUT THE WEBINAR:

One key challenge for e-Government programs around the world has been the
lack of easily accessible information about the metadata schemas,
controlled vocabularies, code lists, and other reference data that provide
interoperability among a broad diversity of data sources.

The Asset Description Metadata Schema [1] was developed for exchanging
information about such interoperability assets. The schema was developed
with support from the European Commission with the objective of
facilitating interoperability across eGovernment programmes in Europe, but
it is already proving its usefulness in a wider context, for example to
describe specifications maintained by DCMI and W3C. One key implementation
of ADMS is in a federation of semantic asset repositories on the Joinup
server [2].

Libraries that collect government information will benefit if such
information is based on a set of commonly used schemas, vocabularies and
code lists, making it easier to aggregate information from multiple
sources. This webinar introduces the ADMS schema and discusses examples of
its implementation.

ABOUT THE SPEAKERS:

Makx Dekkers has been the editor in the development and consensus process
for ADMS. He is an independent information professional who has been
working in areas of information management, metadata and interoperability
for more than three decades. After a career start in library and
information networking and international cooperation, he became the
Managing Director at DCMI in 2001, a position he held until 2011. Since
then, he has been involved with projects concerning interoperability in the
areas of Open Government Data and Public Sector information.

Stijn Goedertier, has been working since 2010 as a contractor for the
Interoperability Solutions for European Public Administration (ISA)
Programme of the European Commission. His interests include digital public
services, administrative processes, and semantic interoperability. Since
2011, he has been closely involved in the development and promotion of the
e-Government Core Vocabularies and Asset Description Metadata Schema (ADMS)
together with public administrations and standardisation organisations in
Europe. In that context, Stijn was also responsible for the design and
operation of the federation of semantic asset repositories on Joinup [2].
Stijn is also a manager at PwC Technology Consulting where he focuses on
Information Management. He has a Master degree in Business Engineering and
a PhD in Process Mining.

ABOUT THE WEBINAR:

Open data is a crucial prerequisite for inventing and disseminating the
innovative practices needed for agricultural development. To be usable,
data must not just be open in principle -- i.e., covered by licenses that
allow re-use. Data must also be published in a technical form that allows
it to be integrated into a wide range of applications.

This webinar describes the technical solutions adopted by a widely diverse
global network of agricultural research institutes for publishing research
results. The talk focuses on AGRIS, a central and widely-used resource
linking agricultural datasets for easy consumption, and AgriDrupal, an
adaptation of the popular, open-source content management system Drupal
optimized for producing and consuming linked datasets.

Agricultural research institutes in developing countries share many of the
constraints faced by libraries and other documentation centers, and not
just in developing countries: institutions are expected to expose their
information on the Web in a re-usable form with shoestring budgets and with
technical staff working in local languages and continually lured by
higher-paying work in the private sector. Technical solutions must be easy
to adopt and freely available. The webinar will be of interest to any
institution seeking ways to publish and curate data in the Linked Data
cloud.

ABOUT THE SPEAKERS:

Johannes Keizer has worked for the Food and Agriculture Organization of the
United Nations (FAO) since 1998, primarily as head of the FAO documentation
group. The bibliographic database AGRIS and the multilingual concept scheme
AGROVOC were completely remodeled under his leadership. In the Office of
Knowledge Exchange, Research and Extensions, he heads a staff of 20 -- the
AIMS (Agricultural Information Management Standards and Services) team --
which provides standards, tools, and advice for FAO stakeholders. The AIMS
Team provides the technical backbone for the global Coherence in
Information forAgricultural Research for Development (CIARD) Initiative.
Through EC framework projects such as NeON, D2Science, and agINFRA, the
AIMS Team has channeled the results of innovative European research into
the international work of FAO to combat hunger and poverty in the world.

Caterina Caracciolo is senior information specialist at the FAO. After
working at the National Council of Research (CNR) in Pisa, she joined FAO
in 2006. Since then, she has worked on various aspects related to
information management and sharing, with special focus on metadata. She is
currently involved in the SemaGrow project and part of the AGROVOC
management team at FAO. She holds a PhD in Computer Science from the
University of Amsterdam.

The oldest RDF vocabularies in existence are just fifteen years old.  It is
time to look systematically at how ownership and responsibility for today's
vocabularies will pass to the next generation.  DCMI and W3C are sponsoring
a special session at the DC-2013 conference in Lisbon on 3 September about
the long-term preservation and governance of RDF vocabularies [1].

This session focuses on issues related to the usability of RDF vocabularies
in the long term (as defined in decades) -- continued access to
documentation, inheritance of ownership and maintenance responsibility, and
the continued resolvability of domain names.  What role might memory
institutions play in the long-term preservation of vocabularies?

A discussion paper has been prepared as a starting point for this session
[2], and readers are welcome to post comments or suggestions on the
DC-VOCABULARY mailing list ([3], sign up at [4]).

ABOUT THE WEBINAR:

VIVO is a semantic web application focused on discovering researchers and
research publications in the life sciences.  The service, which uses
open-source software originally developed and implemented at Cornell
University, operates by harvesting data about researcher interests,
activities, and accomplishments from academic, administrative,
professional, and funding sources.  Using a built-in, editable ontology for
describing things such as People, Courses, and Publications, data is
transformed into a Semantic-Web-compliant form.  VIVO provides automated
and self-updating processes for improving data quality and authenticity.
Starting with a classic Google-style search box, VIVO users can browse
search results structured around people, research interests, courses,
publications, and the like -- data that can be exposed for re-use by other
systems in a machine-readable format.

This webinar, held by a veteran at the Albert R. Mann Library Information
Technology Services department at Cornell, where the VIVO project was born,
presents the perspective of a software developer on the practicalities of
building a high-quality Semantic-Web search service on existing data
maintained in dozens of formats and software platforms at large, diverse
institutions.  The talk will highlight services that leverage the Semantic
Web platform in innovative ways, e.g., for finding researchers based on the
text content of a particular Web page and for visualizing networks of
collaboration across institutions.

SPEAKER:

John Fereira, a senior programmer/analyst and technology strategist at
Cornell University, is a contributing member of the VIVO project team.  He
also consults on issues related to information technology in higher
education with an emphasis on open-source, modular, distributed software
systems and is currently working on systems based on VIVO software for
international Agricultural Information systems communities.

Registration closes one hour before the webinar begins.

ABOUT THE WEBINAR:

A seminar at the British Library in April 2012 marked the fifth anniversary
of a 2007 meeting at which representatives of the Dublin Core, Semantic
Web, and RDA communities jointly recommended that the then-draft cataloging
standard RDA be provided in the form of vocabularies and application
profiles usable for Linked Data.

One year after this anniversary meeting and one year closer to the general
deployment of RDA in libraries, this webinar will take stock of progress
towards developing application profiles based on RDA and discuss the
practicalities of exposing RDA-based data in the Linked Data cloud.

SPEAKER:

Alan Danskin, Metadata Standards Manager at The British Library, where he
has worked in various capacities since 1987, including implementation of
MARC 21.  He currently represents the library on the Joint Steering
Committee for the Development of RDA (Resource Description and Access) for
which he until recently served as chair. He has served as chair of the
Cataloguing  Indexing Group of the Chartered Institute of Library and
Information Professionals and is a member of the Book Industry
Communication Bibliographic Standards Group.

DC-2013 will explore questions regarding the persistence, maintenance, and
preservation of metadata and descriptive vocabularies. The need for stable
representations and descriptions spans all sectors including cultural
heritage and scientific data, eGovernment, finance and commerce. Thus, the
maintenance and management of metadata is essential to address the long

engage in the exchange of knowledge and best practices in developing a
sustainable metadata ecosystem.

Beyond the conference theme, DCMI welcomes submissions of papers, project
reports and posters addressing the broad array of topics impacting metadata
research, design, and practice in domain and cross-domain contexts. Such
contexts include, but are not limited to, corporations, cultural memory
institutions, education, government, scientific fields, recordkeeping,
preservation, curation, institutional repositories, and publishing.

ABOUT THE WEBINAR:

In May 2012, the Library of Congress announced a new modeling initiative
focused on reflecting the MARC 21 library standard as a Linked Data model
for the Web, with an initial model to be proposed by the consulting company
Zepheira.  The goal of the initiative is to translate the MARC 21 format to
a Linked Data model while retaining the richness and benefits of existing
data in the historical format.

In this webinar, Eric Miller of Zepheira will report on progress towards
this important goal, starting with an analysis of the translation problem
and concluding with potential migration scenarios for a broad-based
transition from MARC to a new bibliographic framework.

SPEAKER:

Eric Miller is co-founder and president of Zepheira, which provides
solutions for managing information across boundaries of person, group, and
enterprise. Until 2007, Eric led the Semantic Web Initiative for the World
Wide Web Consortium (W3C) at MIT and was one of the key leaders in the
development of the Resource Description Framework and other Semantic Web
technologies.  Prior to his work at W3C, Eric was a Senior Research
Scientist at OCLC Online Computer Library Center, Inc. in Dublin, Ohio,
where he served as the co-founder and Associate Director of the Dublin Core
Metadata Initiative.

ABOUT THE WEBINAR

As described in the April NISO/DCMI webinar by Dan Brickley, schema.org is
a search-engine initiative aimed at helping webmasters use structured data
markup to improve the discovery and display of search results. Drupal 7
makes it easy to markup HTML pages with schema.org terms, allowing users to
quickly build websites with structured data that can be understood by
Google and displayed as Rich Snippets.

Improved search results are only part of the story, however. Data-bearing
documents become machine-processable once you find them. The subject
matter, important facts, calendar events, authorship, licensing, and
whatever else
you might like to share become there for the taking. Sales reports, RSS
feeds, industry analysis, maps, diagrams and process artifacts can now
connect back to other data sets to provide linkage to context and related
content. The key to this is the adoption standards for both the data model
(RDF) and the means of weaving it into documents (RDFa). Drupal 7 has
become the leading content platform to adopt these standards.

This webinar will describe how RDFa and Drupal 7 can improve how
organizations publish information and data on the Web for both internal and
external consumption. It will discuss what is required to use these
features and how they impact publication workflow. The talk will focus on
high-level and accessible demonstrations of what is possible. Technical
people should learn how to proceed while non-technical people will learn
what is possible.

ABOUT THE WEBINAR

Schema.org--a collaboration of the Google, Yahoo!, and Bing search
engines--provides a way to include structured data in Web pages. Since its
introduction in June 2011, the Schema.org vocabulary has grown to cover
descriptive terms for content such as movies, music, organizations, TV
shows, products, locations, news items, and job listings. The goal of
Schema.org is to improve the display of search results, making it easier
for people to find the right web pages. The Schema.org initiative has
emerged as a focal point for publishers of structured data in Web pages,
especially but not exclusively in the commercial sector.

This webinar will explore how the publication methods of Schema.org relate
to the methods used to publish Linked Data. Must data providers commit to
one or the other, or can the two approaches exist side-by-side, even
reinforcing each other?

TOPICS AND SPEAKERS

Dan Brickley is best known for his work on Web standards in the W3C
community, where he helped create the Semantic Web project and many of its
defining technologies. Dan is currently working on outreach activities
related to the Schema.org initiative. Previous work included six years on
the W3C technical staff, establishing ILRT's Semantic Web group at the
University of Bristol, and more recently at Joost, an Internet TV start-up,
and at the Vrije University Amsterdam. He has been involved with resource
discovery metadata since 1994 when he published the first HTML Philosophy
guide on the Web, and has been exploring distributed, collaborative
approaches to finding stuff ever since.

Thomas Baker, Chief Information Officer of the Dublin Core Metadata
Initiative, has recently co-chaired the W3C Semantic Web Deployment Working
Group and the W3C Incubator Group on Library Linked Data.

This seminar marks five years of progress in library linked data since the
?London Meeting? of 2007 London Meeting of 31 April/1 May 2007 between DCMI
and Joint Steering Committee for the Development of RDA stimulated
significant development of Semantic Web representations of the major
international bibliographic metadata models, including IFLA?s Functional
Requirements family and the International Standard Bibliographic
Description (ISBD), and MARC as well as RDA itself. Attention is now
beginning to focus on the management and sustainability of this activity,
and the development of high-level semantic and data structures to support
library applications.

The DCMI Bibliographic Metadata Task Group [1] and the DCMI Vocabulary
Management Community [2] will hold inaugural meetings the day before the
seminar. The venue for both days is the British Library, St. Pancras,
London.
