When he's not over volunteering for professional associations, Mack is usually hanging out with his fiancé and his super lazy Australian Cattle Dog.

Amanda Roper is the Interlibary Loan and Reserves Specialist (official title) and Marketing and Communication Specialist (unofficial role) at Brenau University in Gainesville, Georgia.

Description: STEAM programs that connect youth audiences to science, technology, engineering, the arts, and math—continue to be a particularly hot topic in libraries, with plenty of conference programs and online learning opportunities devoted to the concept. Yet despite the growing number of STEAM resources available, libraries may find themselves wondering:

- What might STEAM programs look like particularly in libraries serving racially and ethnically diverse communities?
- How do my staff and I offer meaningful STEAM opportunities for diverse populations without specialized training?
- How do we help youth build strong foundations in STEAM through programs that are easily accessible and interesting to a community with a diverse population?

In a landscape where children of color tend to have fewer STEAM opportunities in school and extracurriculars, the library can aim to fill these gaps for their communities. This webinar will explore why it is necessary to offer STEAM programs for diverse youth and teen populations, and will include a variety of ideas for programs and resources for finding and creating your own programs.

At the end of this one-hour webinar, participants will:

We will begin with a basic overview of linked data principles before diving into techniques and tools for consuming and producing linked data. Participants will learn to manipulate linked data graphs using several tools and programming languages, including Ruby, PHP, JavaScript and SPARQL. We’ll review RDFa, JSON-LD serializations, framing and how JSON-LD can be used to easily publish linked data. Participants will also learn how to use framing to publish an existing JSON document as linked data and how to add RDFa to an HTML document.

Participants will gain the skills necessary to:

• recognize different linked data serializations,
• understand how to content negotiate for a particular serialization,
• locate and install tools and libraries for consuming linked data in the programming language of their choice, and
• manipulate linked data graphs using several programming languages, including Ruby, PHP and JavaScript.
