Are you planning to attend the 13th International Digital Curation Conference (IDCC18), to be held Feb 19-22, 2018? Fedora Product Manager David Wilcox will offer a workshop entitled Supporting FAIR Data Principles with Fedora on Monday, Feb. 19, at the NH Collection Barcelona Tower.

Fedora supports FAIR data principles by providing services that help make data Findable, Accessible, Interoperable, and Re-usable. Participants will get an introduction to Fedora and learn how to create and manage content in Fedora in accordance with linked data best practices and the Portland Common Data Model. Attendees will also learn how to import resources into Fedora and export resources from Fedora to external systems and services as part of a digital curation workflow. Both new and existing Fedora users will be interested in learning about and experiencing Fedora features and functionality first-hand.

Workshop details and schedule are available here: Draft agenda and workshop information.
