Metadata Principles and Practices: Metadata Relationships

 Registration is closed for this event

This final workshop in the Metadata Principles and Practices series focuses on the role of expressing relationships in metadata to enhance resource discovery.  Topics to be covered:

  • How the Metadata Encoding and Transmission Standard maintains links between metadata and the resources they describe
  • How the Semantic Web, RDF and Linked Data semantically articulate relationships between entities to aggregate metadata components and enable users to find resources related to their research interests
  • The Bibliographic Framework (BibFrame) as an application of RDF and its potential as a replacement for MARC 21

Learning Objectives:

  • Describe the role of relationships in enabling resource acquisition
  • Identify technologies for articulating relationships in metadata
  • Assess the current status and potential of BibFrame as a replacement for MARC

Target Audience:
Any staff involved with cataloging, metadata or digital initiatives interested in examining current and future trends in the development of metadata.

Completion of "Metadata Principles and Practices 1: Metadata Basics" or similar knowledge and experience with XML.
