Limit 40 participants.

First workshop is free, additional workshops are $15.

Online Registration: December 5, 2016 - March 17, 2017

The afternoon session will pick up where the morning session left off and address the different ways to transform and share metadata once it has been created.  The VRA floating palette tools for creating, exporting, importing, and manipulating embedded metadata will be demonstrated, along with more in depth coverage of transformations with discussion of XSLT and XML.  The VRA Transform Tool, which can transform the Excel created by the VRA floating palette into XML will be demoed in a hands-on mode. Once XML is created, an additional transform can be applied to create RDF (Resource Description Framework) with LOD (Linked Open Data). Further discussion of the data requirements for RDF and LOD (storing vocabulary names and refids in your data) will be discussed as well as strategies for dealing with legacy data.  Recommended prerequisites: Metadata Basics Session or SEI; experience creating metadata and applying standards on a regular basis; experience using Microsoft Excel.  Limited to 40 participants.
