Project description

Objectives

  1. To learn how to describe resources by tagging documents using RDFa
  2. To try different vocabularies and compare their pros and cons (schema.org, BIBFRAME, Dublin Core)
  3. To document challenges in the implementation of the above objectives
  4. To reflect upon the potential applications of RDFa for libraries

Project stages

  2. Select an online space and tools to publish tagged content [Status: completed – the website/blog ecommonplacebook.com ; built with WordPress.org software ; hosted through Canadian Web Hosting]
  3. Produce a series of tagged blog posts [Status: ongoing]
