Event Details

Session leaders: Richard Urban
Description: This ERRT session will review the efforts to translate IMLS Digital Collection and Content collection-level XML records into Linked Data.

• Mapping from XML to RDF/XML syntaxes
• Analyzing Collection-level metadata patterns using SIMILE Gadget
• Reconciling values against Linked Data Vocabularies, such as the LoC Thesaurus of Graphic Materials and
Freebase Locations using Google Refine
• Providing different serialization formats using TALIS Morph

While much of the session will be devoted to pragmatic how-to topics,  we will conclude by relating these activities to ongoing research agendas on collection-level description, collection development, and the logical forms of metadata records.
