You’ve heard about hackathons--but have you ever heard of a Janeathon? Drawing on the hackathon model of bringing people together to explore new ideas by setting them to task equipped only with software and their collective gumption and enthusiasm, ALA Publishing and the RDA Development Team announce the first ever event designed to catalog Jane Austen resources with software specifically designed to use RDA. In addition to building practical experience with ‘native’ (not MARC-based) RDA, participants will explore the very real issues inherent in using Resource Description Framework (RDF) statements in aggregated “packages” ready to contribute to the Linked Data world.
