Chicago -- In this LITA webinar learn how to use Schema.org and JSON-LC to expose your data on the internet. Web search engines such as Google, Bing, and Yahoo are integral to making information more discoverable on the open web. How can you expose data about your organization, its services, people, collections, and other information in a way that is meaningful to these search engines? This session will provide an introduction to both Schema.org and the JSON-LD data format. You’ll learn how to leverage Schema.org and semantic markup to achieve enhanced discovery of information on the open web.
