Schema.org has become the de facto vocabulary for describing things on the web. With obvious Rich Snippet, Semantic Search and visibility benefits, you will find Schema.org markup embedded in the html of many sites large and small.
Backed by Google, Yahoo!, Bing & Yandex, advised, and encouraged by a W3C community; it continues to broaden and evolve across the web. The SchemaBibEx W3C Community Group proposed several significant bibliographic enhancements to Schema.org.
Domain specific extension has become a topic of interest, initially with external efforts such as BiblioGraph.net, and with the setting up of sub-domains such as bib.schema.org, legal.schema.org etc.
Richard, Chair of Schema Bib Extend, Editor of BiblioGraph.net, and active supporter of Schema.org, will explore the developments of, and experience around, the vocabulary. He will explain the differences between reviewed and external vocabulary extension models, and how others could engage with the vocabulary and/or its extension into their domain.
This session will cover:
- Benefits and adoption
- W3C Community Groups (Schema.org, SchemaBibEx)
- Vocabulary extension models - External/Reviewed
