In this presentation, Library staff review current activity of the BIBFRAME model on the international scene, including how Europe is exploring BIBFRAME, the interest in other parts of the globe and a large new project closer to home. Included are developments in the roles being played in the support of BIBFRAME by the Program for Cooperative Cataloging and the Italian book and metadata supplier, Casalini Libri.

BIBFRAME 2.0, the Library of Congress Pilot & Next Steps - June 12, 2018

June 12, 2018 VideoBeacher Wiggins highlighted the goals and accomplishments of the Library of Congress' BIBFRAME 2.0 pilot to date and gave an overview of the next steps. Nate Trail discussed the development of the BIBFRAME database, a complete base file that includes all the bibliographic records from Voyager. Catalogers use the bibliographic data in combination with authority data from id.loc.gov to describe resources for the BIBFRAME 2.0 pilot. Trail demonstrated features of the BIBFRAME database interface including end-user search capability, use of linked data queries to highlight relationships between resources and how the database interacts with data entered through the BIBFRAME editor. Jodi Williamschen and Les Hawkins discussed profiles developed for the BIBFRAME editor and illustrated workflows such as creation of a new work and instance, adding instance descriptions to an existing work, updating of an initial bibliographic control (IBC) description and creating new expressions relating to an existing work.

The SHARE-VDE Project: Fulfilling the Potential of BIBFRAME - February 6, 2018

February 6, 2018 VideoMichele Casalini and Tiziana Possemato discuss the SHARE Virtual Discovery Environment in Linked Data, a library community-driven research and development project with the main goal of contributing in bringing BIBFRAME into practice for the benefit of librarians and library patrons. Through the individual processes of analysis, enrichment, reconciliation, conversion and publication of data from MARC21 to RDF, and in the context of libraries with different systems, habits and cataloguing traditions, a three BIBFRAME layer architecture environment is established.
