Introduction to Linked Data - 2nd semester
To enable the student to acquire knowledge and develop expertise in key concepts, technologies, and standards on the basis of linked data in order for him to understand the objectives and the potential underlying linked data within the libraries and the potential they can bring to a wider sharing and dissemination of bibliographic data. At the end of this unit the students must be able to:
question the context of the changes brought about by semantic web and, more specifically, the linked data;
discuss the transformation of bibliographic data and understand the basic principles of its exposure related data;
discuss the future of data communication formats MARC / UNIMARC.
