With the active interest in the community in both linked data and BIBFRAME, LC thought it was a good time to hear some perspectives of several important system suppliers in the library community.  The vendors represented on this panel are each looking for how they will both continue to sustain and improve the systems they have in libraries and also plan how they can take advantage of the linkages that are increasingly going to be included in our data.  Thus the panel will focus on their views of linked data, and in particular BIBFRAME, and their roadmaps for near term product development in those areas. 


- Eric Miller, President, Zepheira

- Leif Pedersen, Senior Vice President of Product Management, R&D, and Marketing, Innovative Interfaces

- Ido Peled, Vice President, Solutions and Marketing, Ex Libris

- Sheridan Richey, Vice President, Product Management and Software Development, SirsiDynix

The session will open with an update on the Library of Congress BIBFRAME pilot:

- Sally McCallum, Library of Congress
