Session Title

Structuring Library Data on the Web with Schema.org: We're On It!

Presenter Information

Dan Scott, Laurentian University

Description

Until recently, there has been a disappointing level of adoption of schema.org structured data in traditional core library systems such as catalogues and institutional repositories. But there is still hope! In this session, l'll briefly (re)introduce you to the schema.org vocabulary as expressed in microdata and RDFa and convince you that it matters to libraries, explain how our W3 Schema Bib Extend group participates in the schema.org development process, identify library systems that now publish schema.org structured data by default, and explore emerging possibilities for enhancing libraries' presence on the web with structured data.
