I don't understand why someone thought their needed to make a huge change to how we catalog. The AACR2 has been successful all these years why make major overhaul to something that is already working perfect. Changing from MARC to BIBFRAME wasn't carefully thought over. The price tag, such as training staff, purchase more equipment to store this information and the time to switch from one format to another was not carefully looked at before starting. To me it is more confusing and frustrating than anything-else. I could understand if you found something that you felt that this part of MARC needed to be improved. This appears to be changing the whole format of how we catalog. When you change to many things at once, it doesn't turn out what one thought it should be in the final results. Complete the changes you are trying to make and then present it to us so it will stop been so confusing. To me it's like a big soup and everyone is trying to add items to the pot, and you want everyone to be happy with what they are adding to the pot; but when you have too many cooks the results never turn out great. Thank you for allowing me to give my thoughts.

Subject: I would love to hear people's thoughts on a few questions
I would love to hear people's thoughts on a few questions:
1. How mature do you think the BIBFRAME model will be 1 year from today?
2. Do you think it is practice to use BIBFRAME as RDF as the interchange format (instead of MARC)?
3. How do you feel about migration of all your existing BIBs or at least migration on the fly of
MARC records being updated and of MARC records ingested from external sources?
4. How do you feel about doing original cataloging in the BIBFRAME model?
