The Library of Congress is planning for 2021 to be an expansion year for its BIBFRAME cataloging operation as a large project involves bringing all the cataloging staff into BIBFRAME. This means that interchange using both BIBFRAME and MARC will also expand, as will the potential for new developments for systems based on either format. This Update will hear about plans of Ex Libris for Linked Data -- How bridging the BIBFRAME and MARC workflows might work in the Folio development -- And an OCLC intent to be able to “adroitly” consume and export BIBFRAME data.
Join us on Sunday morning!
