CaMMS Forum on Bibframe: Notes From the Field
Sunday, Feb. 1, 1-2:30 pm
McCormick Place West, W183c

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.
