Zepheira Teaches Libraries About Linked Data and BIBFRAME
Zepheira developed an online training program, Linked Data and BIBFRAME for Libraries, which is focused on the applied use of those vocabularies. The program lasts 4–5 weeks and is typically offered twice per month via Zepheira’s learning management environment. Libraries that register for January’s special group sessions by Dec. 19 will receive early access to course materials.
Linked data and BIBFRAME are designed to help the web find and reflect libraries’ offerings. Zepheira decided that libraries should have a baseline of knowledge and awareness about how to begin using them, so it created the program to offer content from industry experts. There are also online discussions and locally focused exercises in the course. After the training is completed, libraries can participate in alumni discussions and retain access to course content and tool updates.
