    You will need a computer for the presentation and Q&A.
    Audio is available through the computer (broadcast) and by telephone. We recommend you have a set-up for telephone audio as back-up even if you plan to use the broadcast audio as the voice over Internet isn't 100% reliable.

About the Webinar

In May 2012, the Library of Congress announced a new modeling initiative focused on reflecting the MARC 21 library standard as a Linked Data model for the Web, with an initial model to be proposed by the consulting company Zepheira.  The goal of the initiative is to translate the MARC 21 format to a Linked Data model while retaining the richness and benefits of existing data in the historical format. 

In this webinar, Eric Miller of Zepheira will report on progress towards this important goal, starting with an analysis of the translation problem and concluding with potential migration scenarios for a broad-based transition from MARC to a new bibliographic framework.

Speakers

Eric Miller is co-founder and president of Zepheira, which provides solutions for managing information across boundaries of person, group, and enterprise. Until 2007, Eric led the Semantic Web Initiative for the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) at MIT and was one of the key leaders in the development of the Resource Description Framework and other Semantic Web technologies.  Prior to his work at W3C, Eric was a Senior Research Scientist at OCLC Online Computer Library Center, Inc. in Dublin, Ohio, where he served as the co-founder and Associate Director of the Dublin Core Metadata Initiative.
