Workshop Title: Training the Trainers for Linked Data
Day/Time: Tuesday, September 1st— 8:30-17:30
Workshop Leads: Seth van Hooland & Ruben Verborgh
Workshop Language: English (Simultaneous Portuguese translation)
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.
This workshop is part of the DCMI Train the Trainer series of workshops, tutorials and webinars dedicated to further development of the metadata professional workforce. The workshop is an updated version of a similar workshop held at DC-2014.
