International Association of Sound and Audiovisual Archives (IASA)

I attended the 42nd conference of IASA in Frankfurt last week and spoke to the Organising Knowledge Task Torce. There is a lot of interest in semantic metadata and Linked Open Data in particular amongst the archival community. Some archivists are already well versed in Semantic Web techniques and technologies, others are just beginning to think about how to make their collections findable online, and others know that they have well-structured metadata in their catalogues but are not sure how best to transform these to fully digital formats.

I have written more about the conference on my blog, VocabControl.
