1 W3C and RDF

2 Why OCLC is a W3C Member Access to networked information resources –the browser and online access –the breath and depth of networked information resources –new ways of publishing Less obvious ways –enhanced interoperability –restructuring of business relations –a transformational way in how goods and services are delivered The Web is transforming our environment

3 RDF Objectives Resource Description Framework Machine understandable metadata Support structured values Support metadata bureaus Encourage authenticated metadata Base for a variety of descriptions: –cataloging, privacy, accessibility, IPR,...

4 RDF Components Formal data model Syntax for interchange of data Schema Type system (schema model) Syntax for machine-understandable schemas Query and profile protocols

5 RDF Data Model Imposes structural constraints on the expression of application data models – for consistent encoding, exchange and processing of metadata Enables resource description communities to define their own semantics Provides for structural interoperability
