Ed. by Jane Greenberg and Eva Mendez.

Haworth Pr.


257 pages




Greenburg (information and library sciences, U. of North Carolina at Chapel Hill) and Mendez (librarianship and information science, Universidad Carlos II de Madrid, Spain) assemble 12 articles that discuss how and why librarians and other information professionals should build a more library-like internet through "semantic knitting"--creating a more closely joined relationship between information. They present Semantic Web foundations, standards, tools, projects (such as RDF, the Simple Knowledge Organization System, and Friend Of A Friend), and philosophical ideas. Article authors work in Semantic Web development, knowledge management, library science, information and media studies, application development, and other fields in North America and Europe. The book is aimed at professionals, researchers, educators, and students in library and information science, computer science, information architecture, Web design, and Web services. It has been co-published simultaneously as Cataloging & Classification Quarterly, vol. 43, nos. 3/4, 2007.
