SWFLN MARC, BIBFRAME, and their Relationship to RDA

Description:
This webinar is the THIRD in a SERIES OF FOUR that will lead all to a common place of knowledge. Once these webinars are completed, a face-to-face workshop will be planned to reinforce and build upon the foundation provided in these webinars. This webinar will provide attendees a non-technical overview of linked data and related concepts, such as Resource Description Framework (RDF). Benefits and problems associated with a linked data environment will be discussed, as well as its connection to Resource Description and Access (RDA), the new cataloging standard.

Academic Library staff will be interested in this workshop because the developers of new cataloging standards, such as RDA and BIBFRAME, are incorporating linked data concepts into these standards. It is important to understand linked data as it is likely to play a major role in the future of library cataloging.

Public Library staff will find this training beneficial because the developers of new cataloging standards, such as RDA and BIBFRAME, are incorporating linked data concepts into these standards.
