Successful data sharing requires that users of your data understand the data format, the data semantics, and the rules that govern your particular use of terms and values.

Eric Prud’hommeaux, Tom Baker
Every structured exchange requires consensus about the structure. The Shape Expressions (ShEx) language captures these structures in an intuitive and powerful syntax.

Marcia Zeng
Linked Data is recognized as one of the underpinnings for open data, open science, and data-driven research and learning in the Semantic Web era.

A metadata application profile (MAP) is a construct that provides a semantic model for enhancing interoperability when publishing to the Web of Data.

Christina Harlow
With the increasing number of repositories, standards and resources we manage for digital libraries, there is a growing need to assess, validate and analyze our metadata - beyond our traditional approaches such as writing XSD or generating CSVs for manual review.

Bernadette Farias Lóscio, Caroline Burle dos Santos Guimarães, Newton Calegari
There is a growing interest in the publication and consumption of data on the Web. Government and non-governmental organizations already provide a variety of data on the Web, some open, others with access restrictions, covering a variety of domains such as education, economics, ECommerce and scientific data.

Bernadette Farias Lóscio, Caroline Burle dos Santos Guimarães, Newton Calegari
Existe um interesse crescente na publicação e consumo de dados na Web. Organizações governamentais e não-governamentais já disponibilizam uma variedade de dados na Web, alguns abertos, outros com restrições de acesso, abrangendo diversos domínios como educação, economia, segurança, patrimônio cultural, eCommerce e dados científicos.

The dream of Linked Data: if we just get our data online, the promised Semantic Web will eventually rise. Everybody will be able to query our data with minimal effort.

Stephanie Lemieux
Many organizations have content dispersed across multiple independent repositories, often with a real lack of metadata consistency. The attention given to enterprise data is often not extended to unstructured content, widening the gap between the two worlds and making it near impossible to provide accurate business intelligence, good user experience, or even basic findability.

Richard Wallis
In this second more technical webinar in the series, Independent Consultant, Richard Wallis, explains the Schema.org extension mechanism, for external and reviewed/hosted extensions, and their relationship to the core Schema.
