Short Session Description (one line): explains possibilities for deeper semantic linking using the inherent action properties of items

Full Session Description (as long as you would like): The RDA triplet structure provides an infrastructure that allows for powerful new linking associations based upon embedded semantic meanings. We will look at the possibilities of using Action values, properties associated with each element described, in order to create deeper semantic linking. Imagine searching for (1) any time an image of the sun represented "hope" OR (2) any character in a novel who was like Holden Caulfield, in that he represented youth and teenage rebellion and angst. Such actions or meanings could be used to search for deeper meanings -- if the metadata for such meanings and associations were present in the RDA records.

For additional information about this topic see the recent publication: "Making Search More Meaningful: Action Values, Linked Data, and Semantic Relationships" Online Searcher 39 (5) : 55-58 (September/October 2015).
