SWSIG intro WLIC2013

  1. 1. IFLA—Semantic Web special Interest Group   Welcome to the 3rd open session of the SIG ! Singapore – 79th WLIC 2013 News / contact / join : http://www.ifla.org/en/swsig
  2. 2. ABOUT THE SWSIG - previous WLICs   Milan 2009 : – Satellite meeting “Emerging trends in technology: libraries between Web 2.0, semantic web and search technology” – first thoughts of creating a Semantic Web working group within the IT section Göteborg 2010 : Open session “Libraries and the semantic Web”, co-organized by IT, Cataloguing and Classification & Indexing sections Puerto Rico 2011 : first meeting of the SIG Helsinki 2012 : official approval of the SIG by IFLA and 2nd meeting of the SIG
  3. 3. ABOUT THE SWSIG   Mission of the SWSIG : – to be an open place to discuss subjects related to the topic of Semantic Web and libraries – to raise awareness among the library community about the relevance and potential of Semantic Web technologies for libraries – to seek convergence with other cultural heritage organizations and with the actors of the Web at large
  4. 4. ABOUT THE SWSIG - other events   Singapore 2013 : – Satellite meeting “User Interaction Built on Library Linked Data” Paris 2014 (BnF, August 14th) : – Satellite meeting “Linked Data in libraries: Let's make it happen !”
  5. 5. What about today ?   Feedback from Helsinki : need for less presentations and more discussions : – to share recipes and best practices – to allow everyone to share their own experience – to raise new topics for future discussion WE NEED YOU !!! The output of today's discussion will be used as input for next year's satellite meeting
  6. 6. 4+ topics for discussion   Standards and mappings Linking and Cooperation Using and reusing Linked Data Tools and recipes
  7. 7. Quickly introducing our discussion topics   Seems an important topic as IFLA is a main standardization body for libraries Previous years : Gordon Dunsire reported from the Namespaces Technical Group Questions may include : – how to identify and encourage actual use of these standards in their RDF expression – how does this effort relate to other standards outside IFLA – best practice on mapping MARC (and other non- RDF formats) to RDF Standards and mappings
  8. 8. Quickly introducing our discussion topics   The Semantic Web is mainly about creating links. Links are not only a data issue but also an organization /cooperation issue. As a major cooperation body between libraries, how can IFLA contribute the necessary effort to link data ? Questions may include : – trust issues when linking to external data – technical issues (tools to create links) – cooperation building: what do we have and what do we need ? Linking and Cooperation
  9. 9. Quickly introducing our discussion topics   Strong focus of our satellite meeting on how linked data actually benefits to users. Demonstrating this benefit is necessary as a selling point of Linked Data to library managers. Questions may include : – trust issues when reusing external data – ideas of interesting interfaces / services that demonstrate the benefit of library Linked Data for end users – Licensing issues Using and reusing Linked Data
  10. 10. Quickly introducing our discussion topics   Recipes for a quick-win publication of Linked Data seems to be a major concern of many libraries wanting to release their data as Linked Open Data. Questions may include : – successful / unsuccessful use of existing tools – Tools wishlist – Required skills and training in Semantic Web technology for librarians Tools and recipes
  11. 11. 4+ topics for discussion   Linked Data and Semantic Web for beginners ? Standards and mappings Linking and Cooperation Using and reusing Linked Data Tools and recipes ... ... ... Session continues : – split in 4+ groups – 30 to 40 minutes discussion – 5 minutes report from each group
