You’ve heard and read about library-linked data, and even attended webinars and conference programs to learn what it’s all about. For traditional MARC catalogers, gaining a deeper understanding of linked data requires a mental “reboot,” best achieved through concrete exposure and practice. In this hands-on session using freely available Protégé software, participants will see and interact with the internal structure of an ontology. Attendees will experiment by editing a pre-loaded ontology, creating RDF triples, generating machine inferences, and executing SPARQL queries. Please note: This deep dive session is scheduled for 2.5 hours, running across both the ‘B’ and ‘C’ time slots.

NOTE: Due to the structure of this program, it was not recorded; however, the program’s supplemental materials are available.
