Fortunately, in these chaotic times BIBFRAME development has been able to proceed with little interruption.  In this different presentation format (for this Forum, but the usual format for everything now) we want to give you an update on several key projects.  LD4P and OCLC, with the assistance of Mellon grants, have been able to initiate very large new projects that build on their work over the last few years.  Meanwhile the Library of Congress is moving ahead with new BIBFRAME editor development and with refinement of the BIBFRAME to MARC conversion programs that are targeted for support of the BIBFRAME Pilot at the Library.  The Pilot output took a setback with the work-from-home transition but it continues in this new environment.


Join us on Wednesday morning!
