10:00 am CST - 11:00 am CST

This webinar will provide an overview of linked data and how it can be used in cultural heritage and library work. In this session, we will discuss using Resource Description Framework (RDF) to create semantically-rich data, as well as some of the tools available to create RDF from data in other formats. There will also be an overview of ontologies, which are used to define concepts being represented in the data, and how these concepts should relate to each other. We will end with a demonstration of SPARQL, the query language for RDF.
