Expected Outcomes, Tools, Schemas, and the Semantic Web

Expected Outcomes for this Webinar

In this webinar we will be using the Python programming language to manipulate MARC21 and MARCXML into BIBFRAME, Dublin Core, and graphs made-up of RDF triples in order to expose this linked data in the form of RDF xml, RDF N-triples, HTML5 RDFa, HTML5 microdata, and JSON Linked Data.

Webinar iPython Notebook

We will be using a web-based interactive computational environment, IPython notebook. This environment is becoming more popular among "big data" and other scientists and engineers building tools around large data-sets. Today we will be using these Python modules:
