Dear colleagues,

We are pleased to announce three free open online learning series below on
metadata and linked data for the library and cultural heritage community.
The asynchronous, self-paced modules are designed to provide the students
with an active, interactive learning experience with a variety of hands-on
exercises and assessments. These webinar series are supported through an
award from the Institute of Museum and Library Service's Laura Bush 21st
Century Librarian Program for the project "Building a Workforce of
Information Professionals for 21st Century Global Information Access" for a
four-year period (2014-18).

The webinars are available through the following project site:

- "XML Metadata Standards" by Rebecca S. Guenther introduces the students
to the emergence of XML-based metadata for organizing information
resources, covering such topics as a comparison of various major XML
metadata schemes and interoperability issues in metadata implementation.

- "Linked Data for Librarians" by Seth van Hooland and Ruben Verborgh
provides an introduction to implementing Linked Data in library
settings (*Introduction
to Semantic Web and Linked Data
<http://course.freeyourmetadata.org/introduction/>*) and then explores more
advanced aspects of Linked Data applications, projects, and skills, such as
metadata cleaning, reconciliation, and enriching (*Advanced course on
applications, projects, and skills related to Linked Data

We always welcome your comments, suggestions, and feedback about your
learning experience.
