Metadata Principles and Practices 04: Metadata Relationships

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.
