Event Description

RDF is often discussed from the perspective of the semantic web. Yet, library applications and cataloging are looking at ways to utilize RDF. In this session, we will explore RDF from its use in the larger web environment to its future in cataloging. Resources for creating bibliographic data in RDF will be shared.

Audience: Anyone interested in RDF
