The Association of Research Libraries (ARL) Statistics & Assessment Program and the Digital Library Federation, a program of the Council on Library and Information Resources, are pleased to offer the following workshop. Taught by experienced XML/XSLT instructors and developers Matthew Gibson, Director of Digital Programs at the Virginia Foundation for the Humanities at the University of Virginia, and Christine Ruotolo, Digital Services Manager 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; and using branching and control structures.
