Date: April 8, 2015

ABOUT THE WEBINAR

In May 2011, the Library of Congress officially launched a new modeling initiative, Bibliographic Framework Initiative, as a linked data alternative to MARC. The Library then announced in November 2012 the proposed model, called BIBFRAME. Since then, the library world is moving from mainly theorizing about the BIBFRAME model to attempts to implement practical experimentation and testing. This experimentation is iterative, and continues to shape the model so that it’s stable enough and broadly acceptable enough for adoption. 

In this webinar, several institutions will share their progress in experimenting with BIBFRAME within their library system. They will discuss the existing, developing, and planned projects happening at their institutions. Challenges and opportunities in exploring and implementing BIBFRAME in their institutions will be discussed as well.

Topics and speakers are:

• Experimental Mode: The National Library of Medicine and experiences with BIBFRAME – Nancy Fallgren, Metadata Specialist Librarian, National Library of Medicine, National Institutes of Health, US Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS)

• Exploring BIBFRAME at a Small Academic Library – Jeremy Nelson, Metadata and Systems Librarian, Colorado College

• Linked Data for Libraries (LD4L) – Nancy Lorimer, Head, Metadata Dept, Stanford University Libraries
