Webinar: Nailing Jello to a Wall: Metrics, Frameworks, and Existing Work for Metadata Assessment

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.Friday, March 24, 2017

Webinar: Data on the Web Best Practices: Challenges and Benefits

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.Friday, March 03, 2017

Webinar: From MARC silos to Linked Data silos? Data models for bibliographic Linked Data

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.Thursday, February 02, 2017
