Data Transformation with XSLT
Taught by seasoned XML/XSLT developers from the Brown University and
University of Virginia libraries, this three-day workshop will explore
XSLT with specific focus on the role of XSLT in digital library
projects. The workshop will be mix of lecture and hands-on demonstration
and experimentation, culminating in the creation of a XSLT based library
Lectures, exercises and projects will allow the participant to gain
experience using some of the more powerful components of XSLT 2.0 and
XPath 2.0 in a library setting, including navigating the XML tree with
XPath; using and creating functions; combining source documents and
creating multiple result documents; sorting and grouping data; and using
branching and control structures.
This workshop is designed for information professionals with a strong
background in XML markup who would like to expand their understanding of
XSLT. A basic understanding of XSLT technology is encouraged, as is a
thorough familiarity with HTML markup.
