Jane-in, the Summer of Linked Data: the Jane-athon comes to San Francisco

If you're going to San Francisco, be sure to attend the second full Jane-athon--and wear some flowers in your hair.


A Jane-athon is a hackathon for metadata about Jane Austen and her works, where catalogers, developers, and vendors get together to explore RDA: Resource Description and Access and its application beyond the MARC environment. The first Jane-athon, Fun with Dick and Jane (and RDA), was a great success and a lot of fun. So make sure to include our event to your conference plans.


The second Jane-athon, the Jane-in, will take place at ALA Annual 2015 in San Francisco on Friday, June 26, 2015. It will be a day-long event, running from 8:30 am to 4:30 pm. Continental breakfast and lunch will be provided.
