This PowerPoint presentation was used during the "Introduction to the Semantic Web and Linked Data" module of the pilot training project developed by the Library of Congress which tested the use of BIBFRAME for bibliographic description. This presentation explains the RDF data model, the use of URIs to identify resources, and other RDF "tools". BIBFRAME is discussed as one of many vocabularies and ontologies being used to describe relationships between resources on the Semantic Web. The wider concept of Linked Open Data (LOD) is introduced along the principles and practices that support it. The module's home page contains links to more materials.

- Distinguishes the RDF abstract data model and concrete serializations of RDF data.
- Knows that Uniform Resource Identifiers, or URIs (1994), include Uniform Resource Locators (URLs, which locate web pages) as well as location-independent identifiers for physical, conceptual, or web r
- Knows the "five stars" of Open Data: put data on the Web, preferably in a structured and preferably non-proprietary format, using URIs to name things, and link to other data.
- Knows the subject-predicate-object component structure of a triple.
- Understands that URIs and literals denote things in the world ("resources") real, imagined, or conceptual.
- Reuses published properties and classes where available.
- Understands that Linked Data (2006) extended the notion of a web of documents (the Web) to a notion of a web of finer-grained data (the Linked Data cloud).
