BIBFRAME Talks & Interest Groups

LITA/ALCTS MARC Formats Transition Interest Group

Saturday, June 28, 2014 - 3:00-4:00pm
Las Vegas Convention Center, Room N-111

RDA, MARC and BIBFRAME: transition and interaction, with Gordon Dunsire and Deborah Fritz.
How do RDA, MARC 21, and BIBFRAME relate? MARC 21 treats a resource as a single entity, similar to ISBD, BIBFRAME uses two entities, and RDA uses four. How these entities interact is the key to understanding the issues facing cataloging in a linked data environment. How can four go into one? Can two go into four? The presentation describes ongoing work in aligning RDA elements with BIBFRAME and with MARC 21, how an RDA editing tool can input RDA and output MARC21, and discusses the outcomes to date.

Gordon Dunsire is Chair of the Joint Steering Committee for RDA, and has been involved in the development of RDA: Resource Description and Access since the 1997 Toronto conference on the future of AACR. He is also Chair of the IFLA Namespaces Technical Group, and participates in various projects and working groups that develop library and cultural heritage standards for use in linked data applications and the Semantic Web. He was formerly Head of the Centre for Digital Library Research at the University of Strathclyde, following a career in academic libraries as cataloger, systems librarian, and senior manager. He presents and publishes widely at international level (http://www.gordondunsire.com/publications.htm).

Deborah Fritz is a founder and co-owner of The MARC of Quality (TMQ, Inc), a provider of cataloging training and MARC record software, established in 1992. She is the author/co-author of two major works on cataloging using MARC, and is currently in the process of transitioning the company’s training from AACR to RDA, and expanding its software beyond MARC to RIMMF.

ALCTS CRS Holdings Information Committee

Saturday, June 28, 2014 - 3:00-4:00pm
Las Vegas Convention Center, Room S-229

Three presentations demonstrating three different perspectives on the manipulation and use of holdings data:

MarcEdit and OCLC Integration
Terry Reese, the developer of the MarcEdit software program, will discuss MarcEdit and current integration opportunities, focusing on the new OCLC Metadata API service. He will demonstrate how MarcEdit has been able to utilize that service to provide deep integration to support direct and local bibliographic editing of WorldCat data directly within MarcEdit, as well as support batch holdings management through the interface.  The presentation will discuss the current capabilities, some gaps, and how interested individuals could get started.

BIBFRAME, ISSN, and the Future of Serials
Regina Reynolds, Coordinator, U.S. ISSN Center, Library of Congress shares her thoughts about the ISSN and the future of serials description and access as we transition from MARC21 to BIBFRAME.  The future of the ISSN is intimately bound to the future of CRs. How are these resources changing, and what are some impacts of those changes?  The presentation will include a high-level view of changes in continuing resources, challenges faced by BIBFRAME in modeling serials, and an introduction of a model for serials, PRESSoo, developed by the ISSN International Centre and the Bibliothèque nationale de France. Some potential benefits of a linked data approach to serials and other continuing resources will also be presented.

The AUDITOR and holdings verification
Josh Pyle, CTO and President of Dublin Six, will discuss holdings verification through the use of The AUDITOR software package. Installed on an institution’s network, The Auditor passively monitors all network traffic and makes libraries aware of every form of content that is being used and presents this information in COUNTER-style reports. The Auditor’s reports include content from every publisher on every platform, and also reports on content from open access or free information sources. Sophisticated click-stream analysis infers library holdings in real-time. Unexpected access denials, including broken links, are detected immediately.

CaMMS Forum - Translating BIBFRAME, or, What is all this #$%!?: Making its potential mutually intelligible to catalogers and coders alike

Sunday, June 29, 2014, 1:00-2:30pm
Las Vegas Convention Center, Room N-111

Presentations include:

  • Storming the Semantic Web. How will libraries, archives, and other cultural-heritage organizations take the Semantic Web by storm? Dorothea Salo will lay out the landscape, demonstrate promising projects, and suggest ways to get involved. Presented by: Dorothea Salo, Faculty Associate, School of Library and Information Studies, University of Wisconsin-Madison.
  • LC's MARC to BIBFRAME Converter: Practical, Fast, and Fun! Linked Data for Libraries and working with the BIBFRAME converter. Philip Schreur will candidly discuss what they discovered about the converter and the model itself in their recent work. Presented by: Philip Schreur, Head, Metadata Department, Stanford University.
  • Toy Stories: The State of Semantics in a Semiotic World. Old paradigms versus totally new adventures. How might we come together, across disciplines, to use linked data in real world solutions?
