*WORKSHOP DESCRIPTION*

*SKOS-2-HIVE* workshops focus on using semantic web technologies for
representing and describing collections using multiple controlled
vocabularies. The workshop focuses on basic understanding and usage of W3C's
Simple Knowledge Organization Systems
(SKOS<http://www.w3.org/2004/02/skos/>), linked
data, and the HIVE library of open source applications.

There are two workshop components:

1. *Foundational Concepts and HIVE Basics*. This component addresses the
conceptual design of structured vocabularies, including a range of semantic
relationships; domain representation and issues central to identifying
useful vocabularies; the application of basic SKOS tags; and basic
techniques underlying the HIVE vocabulary server for enriching
digital resource descriptions.

2. I*mplementing HIVE*. This component covers more technical aspects
including steps for implementing a HIVE server.

Workshop outlines and learning outcomes provided further below.
Workshop rationale: Semantic web technologies provide innovative means for
organizing, describing, and managing digital resources in a range of
formats. Successful implementation and use of semantic web technologies
requires both information professionals and system developers to become
knowledgeable about the underlying intellectual construct and roadmap toward
forming a semantic web. The IMLS-funded Helping Interdisciplinary Vocabulary
Engineering (HIVE) <https://www.nescent.org/sites/hive/Main_Page> project
has been addressing these needs by working with the W3C's Simple Knowledge
Organization Systems (SKOS) <http://www.w3.org/TR/skos-reference/> in the
linked data environment. HIVE has been implemented using semantic web
enabling technologies and machine learning to provide a solution to the
traditional controlled vocabulary problems of cost, interoperability, and
usability. Current HIVE vocabulary partners include the Library of
Congress<http://www.loc.gov/index.html>,
the Getty Research Institute <http://www.getty.edu/research/>, and the U.S.
Geological Survey <http://www.usgs.gov/>.

**WORKSHOP OUTLINE AND LEARNING OUTCOMES*

*Morning Session: Foundational Concepts and HIVE Basics, 8:30 AM-12:00 PM*

*Overview*

This session addresses traditional thesaural concepts and the extension of
these concepts via SKOS/linked data, HIVE and the semantic web.

*Audience*

This workshop targets information professionals (librarians, archivists,
museum professional, web architects, and others); system developers; and
students seeking knowledge about the basic framework and conceptual aspect
of vocabulary design.

*Prerequisites*

Have a basic understanding of subject metadata creation or subject
cataloging.

*Learning Outcomes*

- Evaluate controlled vocabulary, thesauri, and ontologies that would best
fit your information environment's needs.

- Identify basic thesaural relationships including: relative, associative
and hierarchical.

- Use basic SKOS tags to identify the above thesaural relationships.

- Become familiar with using the HIVE software and the HIVE processes.

*
**Lunch on your own 12:00 PM-1:00 PM*

*
**Afternoon Session: Implementing HIVE 1:00 PM-4:30 PM*

*Overview*

This session provides details on the HIVE system, underlying algorithms,
source code, and the library of system features.

*Audience*

System developers, as well as technologists, librarians, and information
scientists who are interested in the technological side of the semantic web,
and who may be implementing, experiments with, and/or extending HIVE
technologies.

*Prerequisites*

Java programming, and object oriented design.

*Learning Outcomes
*
- Understand the architecture of the HIVE vocabulary server.
- Become familiar with information retrieval techniques and how HIVE applies
them to vocabulary terms.
- Gain experience indexing documents with HIVE and KEA (a machine learning
application).
- Learn how to integrate HIVE vocabulary services into other tools.
- Learn how to use the SPARQL language for querying content in HIVE.
