Jane-In, The Summer of Linked Data: Library Data meets Linked Data at the San Francisco Jane-athon

Our second-ever Jane-athon will continue the exploration of collaborative cataloging in a Linked Data world through the creation of Jane Austen-related RDA data using the RIMMF tool. The Jane-athon is an excellent opportunity for catalogers, developers and vendors to connect and work together to create library data in an experimental environment. You can learn more about the first Jane-athon here<http://rballs.info/topics/p/jane/janeathon.html> and here<http://www.rdatoolkit.org/janeathon>--it was a great success and a lot of fun, and we expect the Jane-In to be even more so.

The Jane-In will include an expanded afternoon session focused on what can be done with the created data, and, if developer registrants desire, a special table for data creation will be provided.

The Jane-In is a preconference event at the American Library Association's Annual Conference in San Francisco, but you do not need to be a librarian or attend the conference to join in on the Jane-In. Simply go to the registration link below, choose between the member or nonmember option (non members will have to create an ALA account but are not required to become members), and when you arrive at the Registration Category page and scroll down to the bottom of the page and select the Single Session option. After another page of questions, you will arrive at the Sessions and Events page, where you can chose the RDA Jane-athon for purchase.

The second Jane-athon, the Jane-in, will take place at the Moscone Convention Center in San Francisco on Friday, June 26, 2015. It will be a day-long event, running from 8:30 am to 4:00 pm. Continental breakfast and lunch will be provided.
