  • Unconference - Day 1

    Sessions labeled "Unconference" are participant driven sessions on topics of mutual interest. Over the weeks leading up to the conference, we'll be gathering topics and making them available for review here on the website. There is a planning session scheduled during the lunch break on the first day of the conference—22 September. Have a topic to suggest? Some controversial idea? Some late-breaking issue of interest (e,g, schema.org)? If so, leave a brief description at unconf (at) dublincore (dot) net and we will make the growing list available here.

    Workshop Abstract: The objective of the workshop is to exchange best practices and experiences on using Linked Open Data for taxonomies and thesauri for government metadata in different countries and to share other experiences that might be of interest to people working on metadata in a government context.

    Agenda:

    1. Introductions and scene setting
    2. Governance of the community
    Due to change of focus in his work, Palle Aagaard has decided to step down as co-chair of the DC-Government community.

Anyone else who is interested to chair or co-chair the DC-Government community is encouraged to step forward. The workshop will decide who will chair the community.
    3. Lightning presentations and discussion on vocabularies
    We invite representatives of government organisations to give a brief presentation on how they use metadata for government information. For example the use of vocabularies in the government domain. Do you have any experience with creating and maintaining a local vocabulary or with using core vocabularies of others (like EuroVOC, AGROVOC, GEMET) in your application, this is your opportunity to share your lessons learned and your issues with other people in the government domain.
    Please announce your contribution to Hans Overbeek who will convene this workshop. Expected contributions by: Ton Zijlstra of EPSI and Hans Overbeek of the Dutch government
    4. Future charter and group activity

    Workshop Abstract: In this session we will introduce the Europeana Data Model (EDM) and show how Europeana Libraries (see: http://www.europeana-libraries.eu/) a project to develop a sustainable library-domain aggregation infrastructure for Europeana will investigate how library-domain metadata can be aligned with the EDM. The Europeana Data Model is being developed by Europeana, a portal that gives access to the digitised cultural and scientific heritage of Europe (see: http://www.europeana.eu/portal/). It is intended as an integration medium for collecting, connecting and enriching the descriptions provided by Europeana content providers. EDM has been developed reusing classes and properties from other namespaces wherever possible, including RDF, SKOS, OAI-ORE and Dublin Core. Furthermore, Europeana is beginning to experiment with Linked Open Data, undertaking a pilot with willing partners, including libraries.

    Agenda:

    1. Welcome and introduction
    2. The Europeana Data Model (EDM)
    3. Examples how EDM works for libraries
