Session recording

Resources discussed during session
As linked data technologies allow institutions to piece together metadata fields from various ontologies, local metadata standards can continue to be customized while providing interoperability and semantic connections that would not otherwise be possible. Whether your institution uses Dublin Core or another standard as its base, it can sometimes be challenging to consider which ontologies are appropriate to use and why. For instance, the Samvera MODS and RDF Description Metadata Subgroup provided guidelines for utilizing a variety of ontologies, including BIBFRAME, together to map MODS to RDF. In other cases, the linked data community is creating new domain-specific ontologies. How do these various strategies provide richer linked data? What are the potential pitfalls? In this informal Birds of a Feather, participants will be encouraged to share their own examples and discuss developments related to the emergence of new standards.
