Title: "Continuing Resources, Diachronic Works, and the Progression Toward a Linked Data Worldview" Description: Metadata models and guidelines continue to move toward a linked data worldview. While the metamorphosis of continuing resources into diachronic works progresses, we are developing our understanding of the concepts and building blocks that form its foundation. This forum will provide insight into linked data modeling for serials so far by highlighting the research and work done with continuing resources in the LC BIBFRAME pilot and the LD4P2 project. It will also provide a closer look at multi-volume monographs as diachronic works along with updates on diachronic works within the LC-PCC PS.
