This resource was developed by the Library of Congress as one part of a pilot training project which tested the use of BIBFRAME for bibliographic description. The purpose of this module is to introduce the Semantic Web, Linked Data concepts, and some basic tools. Topics covered include the role of semantically linked data in creating useful web services and connecting datasets on the web. The limits of the current MARC based environment are contrasted with the promise of integrating data more fully with Semantic Web resources to enhance user services. This home page contains links to PowerPoint presentations, quizzes, and assignments.
