An Introduction to XML and XML Applications 

March 1113, 2015, in Washington, DC

(see http://www.arl.org/events/upcoming-events/event/132#.VJL47kAFMAA for more information and registration)

Taught by experienced XML instructors and developers Matthew Gibson, director of digital initiatives at the Virginia Foundation for the Humanities at the University of Virginia, and Christine Ruotolo, digital services manager for humanities and social sciences at the University of Virginia Library, this three-day workshop is designed for the relative newcomer to XML. The workshop will be a mix of lecture and hands-on demonstration and experimentation. Some topics the workshop will cover include:

  • Differences between XML and HTML and SGML
  • Writing well-formed XML
  • Writing and validating XML with DTDs, Schema, and Schematron
  • XML Namespaces
  • Exploring XML applications specific to librarians and digital humanists: MODS, METS, TEI, KML, etc.

Transforming Library Metadata with XSLT

May 2022, 2015, in Washington, DC

(see http://www.arl.org/events/upcoming-events/event/133#.VJL6HUAFMAA for more information and registration)

Taught by experienced XML/XSLT instructors and developers Matthew Gibson, director of digital initiatives at the Virginia Foundation for the Humanities at the University of Virginia, and Christine Ruotolo, digital services manager for humanities and social sciences at the University of Virginia Library, this three-day workshop will explore XSLT with a specific focus on the role of XSLT in digital library projects and an emphasis on practical tasks such as metadata crosswalking. The workshop will be a mix of lecture and hands-on demonstration and experimentation.

Lectures, exercises, and projects will allow participants to gain experience using some of the more powerful components of XSLT 1.0 and 2.0, including:

  • Navigating the XML tree with XPath 2.0
  • Working with recursion, modes, and named templates
  • Using and creating functions
  • Combining source documents and creating multiple result documents
  • Sorting and grouping data
  • Using branching and control structures

This workshop is designed for information professionals who have a good understanding of XML and work with it frequently. While some understanding of and experience with XSLT is a plus, this is not a requirement.
