  2. 2. R&D: RDA in RDF or: Can Resource Description become Rigorous Data? Karen Coyle Code4Lib 2008
  3. 3. So… <ul><li>What Karen said… </li></ul>
  4. 4. Thank you <ul><li>Any Questions? </li></ul>
  5. 5. So… <ul><li>What Talis is doing… </li></ul>
  6. 6. Proof of Concept <ul><li>Show how this technology could make our lives easier </li></ul><ul><li>Demonstrate that more rigorously modeled data improves interoperability </li></ul><ul><li>Or, at the very least, show something fairly cool </li></ul><ul><li>But… </li></ul>
  7. 7. I’m Lazy XKCD - http://xkcd.com/303/ Randall Munroe
  8. 8. Okay, Seriously <ul><li>Metadata Normalization </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Is a serious pain in the @$$ </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Is continual repetition of effort </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>We’re all doing this over and over again </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Aren’t you tired of it? </li></ul></ul>

  11. 12. A Distinction <ul><li>Metadata Harmonization : </li></ul><ul><ul><li>the “ability to use serveral different metadata standards in a single software system.” </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Metadata Normalization : </li></ul><ul><ul><li>mapping serveral different metadata standards to a single schema or structure for use in a single software system. </li></ul></ul>
  12. 14.
