Google, Bing and Yahoo have joined their efforts and have created schema.org, a site that offers “a one stop resource” for metadata structure for web pages.
There are two schema that stand out as excellent additions to library web sites:
- Thing:CreativeWork:Book could effectively make book lists and even crawled library catalogs search engine friendly.
- Thing:Organization:Library is perfect for any library web site’s “About” page.
Neither of these will add flash or content to your site or catalog, but it will make them more visible to search engines, and will ultimately increase the use and usability of your library as a whole. If you are involved with your library web site, this needs to be added to your “to do” list!
