Evaluating RDA Registry profiles for linked-data cataloging

Session recording (The recording starts a few minutes into the live conference session; to see and hear the first few minutes of the presenter's content, view this pre-recorded version of the presentation.The pre-recorded version does not include the live session Q&A.)

Staff at the University of Washington (UW) Libraries are testing the Sinopia Linked Data Editor as a tool for creating bibliographic data, part of a larger goal to move cataloging out of the MARC format and into the Resource Description Framework (RDF) model and linked-data practices. Use of the Editor requires templates defining resources to be described and properties used to make statements. UW staff have built our templates using RDF properties and classes from the Resource Description and Access (RDA) Registry, and their use in the Sinopia environment differs from the use of BIBFRAME-based profiles in a number of ways: Libraries produce bibliographic data according to the RDA content standard; UW Libraries staff are generating RDA data in RDF without translating to the BIBFRAME model, which is distinct from RDA It allows a close look at "pure RDA" linked-data output and an opportunity to evaluate its usefulness It entails challenges related to the interaction of the profiles with the Sinopia environment, and opportunities to provide feedback for the developers of Sinopia based on its use with an alternate data model This presentation will include information about the creation of RDA application profiles for use with Sinopia, a brief look at using them in the Editor for some common library resource types, an overview of what data output from the RDA profiles looks like, and consideration of other ways that adoption of RDA-in-RDF has affected work on this project. The intended audience for this presentation includes technical services staff interested in what linked-data cataloging using RDA-in-RDF might look like and how it might compare to similar cataloging using the BIBFRAME model, as well as others interested in the RDA-in-RDF data model, cataloging in the Sinopia Linked Data Editor, or the move towards linked-data cataloging in general.
