Library of Congress BIBFRAME Update

Sunday, June 24, 2018;  10:30-12:00

New Orleans Convention Center, Room 260-262


The BIBFRAME Update will focus on several large implementations, and different approaches to  converting our MARC records to the BIBFRAME data model.  Presentations will include the ongoing Library of Congress Pilot 2 with 60 catalogers and 20 million converted MARC records; the SHARE-VDE conversion of millions of MARC records to make sharable BIBFRAME descriptions; the Plains2Peaks service hub project for Colorado and Wyoming that transforms multiple formats into BIBFRAME; and OCLC’s work with 11 million MARC records converted to BIBFRAME. 


Join us on Sunday morning!

Library of Congress BIBFRAME 2.0 Pilot progress report                                                              

Beacher Wiggins,   Library of Congress

Jodi Williamschen,   Library of Congress

After almost a year of activity, the LC BIBFARME Pilot 2 has yielded data and feedback that will inform next steps for LC and BIBRAME.  LC has used this information from the Pilot to make decisions and issue a report assessing the Pilot.  The Pilot included catalogers inputting original cataloging into a BIBFRAME editor that are then added to the Library’s BIBFRAME catalog.  After a year of changes, data reloads, and software adjustments, the Library has a working database with four billion triples converted from 20 million MARC records.   Progress and issues will be discussed along with a description of the merge and match process and the new input techniques the editor enables, along with its limitations.   This presentation will address some of the outcomes and decisions.      


From MARC to BIBFRAME in the SHARE-VDE project 

              Tiziana Possemato, Casalini Libri - @Cult

SHARE-VDE is a research and development initiative driven specifically by the library community to facilitate the implementation of BIBFRAME in libraries. This presentation describes the project components including: conversion of over 100 million bibliographic and authority records from 12 North American institutions to BIBFRAME 2.0; reconciliation of entities, creating clusters; enrichment of these reconciled clusters with URIs from external sources; and the publication, supply, and management of authority and bibliographical data in RDF. Technical hurdles will be described, along with the solutions adopted, results, feedback, and evidence received from the international library community.


Using BIBFRAME in multi-institutional projects  

Jeremy Nelson, Colorado College

The Plains2Peaks service hub project for Colorado and Wyoming in the Digital Public Library of America (DPLA) program uses BIBFRAME linked data by ingesting metadata from academic and public libraries, consortiums, and museums into a BIBFRAME RDF knowledge graph from which a Metadata Application Profile is generated in JSON-LD.  The challenge of supporting different ingestion vocabularies like MODS and Dublin Core and different formats like JSON, CSV, and XML to BIBFRAME RDF was met through the RDF Mapping Language (RML) for transforming raw data into BIBFRAME Works, Instances, and Items. In Colorado Alliance’s BIBCAT project, MARCXML from three academic libraries and one public library is converted to BIBFRAME RDF using the Library of Congress marc2bibframe software and then mapped via RML from BIBFRAME to for improved web discovery.


OCLC research with BIBFRAME

              Nathan Putnam, OCLC

Since the release of BIBFRAME 2.0 from the Library of Congress, OCLC Research has experimented with the BIBFRAME 2.0 Converter to evaluate what type of BIBFRAME data OCLC could produce and what modifications, if any, were needed to support OCLC use cases. This presentation will discuss the OCLC Research process in converting approximately 11 million MARC records to BIBFRAME 2.0, what issues were discovered, and what will continue to be useful when converting MARC to BIBFRAME.
