  1. Responding To The Post-truth Phenomenon (Mon, 02 Oct 2017)
    In 2016, the Oxford Dictionaries declared that their Word Of The Year was to be "post-truth", which they defined as: "relating to or denoting circumstances in which objective facts are less influential in shaping public opinion than appeals to emotion and personal belief" This decision reflects the way in which the concept of post-truth has quickly become a widely-acknowledge ...(+184 chars)
    In 2016, the Oxford Dictionaries declared that their Word Of The Year was to be "post-truth", which they defined as: "relating to or denoting circumstances in which objective facts are less influential in shaping public opinion than appeals to emotion and personal belief" This decision reflects the way in which the concept of post-truth has quickly become a widely-acknowledged phenomenon and a mainstream concern. It should be of particular concern to those, such as librarians, with a professional interest in the provision of access to accurate information.

DCMI's Infrastructure Advisory Committee is overseeing a project to modernise the site and to improve the management of a significant amount of content, some of which goes back to 1995! We are taking advantage of two technologies in particular - Github, and Hugo - a static-site-generator. The migration of content to use these new technologies has involved the transformation of content from HTML to a combination of Markdown and YAML - the formats used by Hugo.

  6. Webinar: How to Design Build Semantic Applications with Linked Data (Fri, 19 May 2017)
    This webinar, presented by Dave Clarke, co-founder and CEO of the Synaptica group of companies, will demonstrate how to design and build rich end-user search and discovery applications using Linked Data. The Linked Open Data cloud is a rapidly growing collection of publicly accessible resources, which can be adopted and reused to enrich both internal enterprise projects and public-facing information systems. The webinar will use the Linked Canvas application as its primary use-case.

  8. Webinar: Me4MAP - A method for the development of metadata application profiles (Fri, 21 Apr 2017)
    A metadata application profile (MAP) is a construct that provides a semantic model for enhancing interoperability when publishing data to the Web of Data. When a community of practice agrees to follow a MAP's set of rules for publishing data as Linked Open Data, it makes it possible for such data to be processed automatically by software agents. Therefore, the existence of a method for MAP development is essential to providing developers with a common ground on which to work.

  10. Webinar: Nailing Jello to a Wall: Metrics, Frameworks, and Existing Work for Metadata Assessment (Fri, 24 Mar 2017)
    With the increasing number of repositories, standards and resources we manage for digital libraries, there is a growing need to assess, validate and analyze our metadata - beyond our traditional approaches such as writing XSD or generating CSVs for manual review. Being able to further analyze and determine measures of metadata quality helps us better manage our data and data-driven development, particularly with the shift to Linked Open Data leading many institutions to large-scale migrations.

    There is a growing interest in the publication and consumption of data on the Web. Government and non-governmental organizations already provide a variety of data on the Web, some open, others with access restrictions, covering a variety of domains such as education, economics, e-commerce and scientific data. Developers, journalists, and others manipulate this data to create visualizations and perform data analysis. Experience in this area reveals that a number of important issues need to be addressed in order to meet the requirements of both publishers and data consumers.

  14. Webinar: From MARC silos to Linked Data silos? Data models for bibliographic Linked Data (Thu, 02 Feb 2017)
    Many libraries are experimenting with publishing their metadata as Linked Data to open up bibliographic silos, usually based on MARC records, to the Web. The libraries who have published Linked Data have all used different data models for structuring their bibliographic data. Some are using a FRBR-based model where Works, Expressions and Manifestations are represented separately. Others have chosen basic Dublin Core, dumbing down their data into a lowest common denominator format.
