The DCMI-AsiaPac Workshop will be held a day before the IFLA IT Section's conference on "User interaction based on library linked data" on 16 August. IFLA WLIC itself will run from 17-23 August 2013. DCMI-AsiaPac is part of the Dublin Core Metadata Initiative's Regional Meetings Series. The workshop will raise awareness among librarians in the Asian region of the implementation of Resource Description and Access (RDA) and how library metadata (specifically DC) can be exposed as linked data to improve visibility & enhance collection usage. Our objective is also to build confidence among Asian librarians to work well in the digital arena and be comfortable enough to adopt new technologies that will help improve their libraries' services. A secondary objective is to build a community for the DCMI Asia task group where regular discussion and work on metadata matters can be established.

The theme for the workshop will be "RDA, DC and LOD" and it will be made up of 2 half-day seminars. The morning seminar will focus on introductory concepts which are very important for our region where most librarians are still working with MARC and are not exposed to linked data or Semantic Web technologies. The afternoon seminar will focus on implementation—what and how librarians can expose both their MARC and DC metadata as linked data.
