Materials from the National Information Standards Organization (NISO) virtual conference, “The Semantic Web Coming of Age: Technologies and Implementations” are now online. The event took place on February 19, 2014.
We’ve also embedded the slide decks below.
Summary from NISO
The Semantic Web, the phrase coined by Sir Tim Berners-Lee, envisioned the Internet as a common framework of data that can be shared across numerous platforms. Libraries and publishers are among those leading the charge with projects and initiatives aimed at making information and resources more widely available in the greater web of data.
This virtual conference will look at the challenges and opportunities available through the Semantic Web, highlighting applications, projects, and initiatives that are changing the way libraries and publishers structure their metadata and improve the accessibility of their content.
