Metadata Principles and Practices 4: Metadata Relationships
August 17, 10:30 am - 12:30 pm (CDT)
This final workshop in the Metadata Principles and Practices series focuses on the role of expressing relationships in metadata to enhance resource discovery. Topics to be covered include how the Metadata Encoding and Transmission Standard maintains links between metadata and the resources they describe, how the Semantic Web, RDF and Linked Data semantically articulate relationships between entities to aggregate metadata components and enable users to find resources related to their research interests, and the Bibliographic Framework (BibFrame) as an application of RDF and its potential as a replacement for MARC 21.

August 21 & 23, 10 am - 12 pm (CDT)
This course is an introduction to managing and editing data by learning the syntax and construction of a regular expression, which is a sequence of characters that define a search (and sometimes replace) pattern. The basic characters used to construct a pattern will be discussed and then the patterns will be used in hands-on examples. Regular expressions are used in integrated library system search/replace reports, and some text editors (like Notepad++). Register today at https://www.amigos.org/node/4546.
