NISO`s February Webinar - Using Authority Data to Enhance the Semantic Web
NISO, the National Information Standards Organization, a non-profit association accredited by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI), identifies, develops, maintains, and publishes technical standards to manage information in our changing and ever-more digital environment. NISO standards apply both traditional and new technologies to the full range of information-related needs, including retrieval, re-purposing, storage, metadata, and preservation.
The Semantic Web provides an opportunity to use authority data to enable computers to search, aggregate, and combine information on the Web.
The webinar deals with the services that can result when the rich data included in name authority files, and other standardized vocabularies are linked via the Semantic Web.
- Linking Things and the Virtual International Authority File
- Authorities as Linked Data Hubs
- The Getty Vocabularies: 'Non-Authoritarian' Authority Files for Art, Architecture, and Material Culture
Registration for the webinar closes on February 9, 2011 at 12:00 pm Eastern.
