Perhaps you’ve got lots of metadata at your institution — some of it in relational databases, or collections of XML docs, or possibly even an assortment of spreadsheets. Maybe you’ve been hearing a lot about RDF, SPARQL, and the limitless utopian possibilities of Linked Data, and want to get in on the action. So how do you get your data out those stale old formats and serialized in RDF where it can run amok in the sunny green fields of the Semantic Web? This talk will break down the decisions you’ll need to make and the pain points you’ll encounter as you attempt to migrate your metadata from tables to triples, elements to predicates, and/or strings to URIs.
