E102 Getting Ready for the Semantic Web

RDA is here for testing and the LCSH is in RDF on the web with links to SKOS. It seems that libraries are getting their bibliographic data ready for the semantic web. Since the semantic web is still a new concept for most librarians, Yang explains in simple terms what it is using demos, and covers semantic web technologies such as RDF (Resource Description Framework), URI (Uniform Resource identifier), SKOS (Simple Knowledge Organization System), ontologies, and SPARSQL. This is a great session for anyone who wants to understand the semantic web and its potential for library applications.
