RDF Validation in the Cultural Heritage Community (Tutorial)

A session at DC 2014: International Conference on Dublin Core and Metadata Applications

Wednesday 8th October, 2014

1:00pm to 5:00pm (CST)

Note: Tutorial fee applies

Abstract: Resource Description Framework (RDF) does not natively provide rules for structuring descriptions or validating instance data. This tutorial will present the problems of 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, DPLA data model, 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 and BIBFRAME Profiles.
