Target Audience: Law librarians interested in extending the reach of their catalogs
1) Participants will understand how linked data in our current catalog records can impact user searches.
2) Participants will understand the basic structure of Resource Description Framework (RDF).
Catalogers and systems developers might appreciate the potential of the Semantic Web, but it is difficult to see how a library’s catalog data can be linked in. Diane Hillmann, John Joergensen, and F. Tim Knight will provide an overview and live project examples of how Resource Description and Access (RDA), Search Engine Optimization (SEO), Uniform Resource Identifiers (URIs), and Resource Description Framework (RDF) can push libraries’ records onto the web and extend catalog functionality.
