SKOS-2-HIVE WORKSHOP: Creating SKOS Vocabularies to Help Interdisciplinary Vocabulary Engineering
(This Workshop is also offered in Spanish)
Description of the workshop
The SKOS-2-HIVE workshop targets the use of semantic web technologies for representing and describing collections using multiple controlled vocabularies. The workshop focuses on basic understanding and usage of W3C's Simple Knowledge Organization Systems (SKOS), linked data, and the HIVE library of open source applications.
PART 1: Foundational Concepts and HIVE Basics addresses the conceptual design of structured vocabularies, including a range of semantic relationships; domain representation and issues central to identifying useful vocabularies; the application of basic SKOS tags; and basic techniques underlying the HIVE vocabulary server for enriching digital resource descriptions.
PART 2: Implementing HIVE covers more technical aspects of HIVE, including steps for implementing a HIVE server, an overview of the underlying algorithm, and more hands on activities (details and learning outcomes below).
Semantic web technologies provide innovative means for organizing, describing, and managing digital resources in a range of formats. Successful implementation and use of semantic web technologies requires both information professionals and system developers to become knowledgeable about the underlying intellectual construct and roadmap toward forming a semantic web. The IMLS-funded Helping Interdisciplinary Vocabulary Engineering (HIVE) project has been addressing these needs by working with the W3C's Simple Knowledge Organization Systems (SKOS) in the linked data environment. HIVE has been implemented using semantic web enabling technologies and machine learning to provide a solution to the traditional controlled vocabulary problems of cost, interoperability, and usability. HIVE vocabulary partners include the Library of Congress, the Getty Research Institute, the U.S. Geological Survey, and the National Library of Spain

This workshop will be hands-on, so no virtual attendance would be possible. Sorry for the inconveniences.
This workshop is information professionals (librarians, archivists, museum professional, web architects, and others); system developers; technologists/computer scientists, and students seeking knowledge about the basic framework and conceptual aspect of vocabulary design. Attendees may also have an interest in technical aspects of the semantic web, and in implementing and/or experimenting with technologies.
Have a basic understanding of subject metadata creation, indexing, or subject cataloging, and an interest in or experience working with vocabularies.
