1. How You Can Make the Transition from MARC to Linked Data Easier
An OCLC TAI CHI webinar (November 5, 2015)
Presenters: Jean Godby and Karen Smith-Yoshimura
From OCLC’s experiences in datamining WorldCat to identify entities that can be exposed to the semantic Web, we’ve learned that there’s a lot of data that can be parsed easily and made into “statements” – and sadly, a lot that cannot be without a lot more effort. In this webinar, Jean Godby and Karen Smith-Yoshimura of OCLC Research offered examples from their multilingual bibliographic structure and performers extraction adventures of what metadata specialists can do now to make it easier to transform text strings in MARC data into the entity-“things” we later expose as linked data that others can consume.
