*Program Summary:*

** **

How will subject, genre/form, and classification elements be handled in the
BIBFRAME? What are the challenges and opportunities in analyzing and
organizing our subject, genre, and classification data in new ways?  The
presenter, President Eric Miller, Zepheira, has contracted with the Library
of Congress to provide a Bibliographic Framework Transition
Initiative<http://www.loc.gov/marc/transition/> (BIBFRAME)
model and analysis of related issues. In this program he will focus on the
‘authority’ entity in the BIBFRAME, and talk about pragmatic aspects of its
application and use. He will also discuss the benefits of the ‘authorities’
entity in the BIBFRAME for our users, and the benefits for catalogers in
the areas of searching and assigning subject, genre/form, and
classification in a linked data world. Join us for a lively presentation.
There will be time for questions.****
