We've all been hearing for several years about
BIBFRAME, its purposes, its development and its promise. We know it will change our lives! Many of us are eager to learn by doing, itching to get our hands dirty but unsure where to start. Come to the CaMMS Forum to review what we know and what we don't know, plus hear from two libraries already experimenting with BIBFRAME. The presentations will be followed by a question period.


Angela Kroeger (Archives and Special Collections Associate, University of Nebraska at Omaha) will give an overview of the current status of BIBFRAME development, including a brief introduction to what BIBFRAME is and what it does, which tools are available or under development, a glimpse what fully-implemented linked data looks like, a closer look at the four core classes of the BIBFRAME model, and a dab of philosophy.

Nancy Lorimer (Interim Head of the Metadata Department, Stanford University) will report on the
BIBFRAME-related work of Stanford metadata and library technology staff, introducing their plans for experimentation in the coming year. She will also discuss training catalogers in linked data concepts and technologies as well as the importance of involving a variety of staff in moving toward linked data experimentation and implementation.

Jackie Shieh (Resource Description Coordinator, George Washington University Libraries) will focus on the current state of her library's two years of exploring the transition from MARC to
BIBFRAME. She will share what has become routine and what still remains challenging.
