Bibliographic Framework Initiative (Library of Congress)

The Library of Congress > BIBFRAME > Announcements, Resources, and Reports > Update Forum, January 30, 2023 - 1-2pm (ET)

MONDAY, January 22, 2024, 1:00 - 2:00 pm (ET) / 10:00 - 11:00 am (PT)

The community is seeing BIBFRAME implementation advances with systems on which many libraries depend for their catalog and bibliographic control activities. Thus it is timely to recall how important it is to maintain standardization so that we do not lose the easy interchange we have today with MARC. This forum will feature BIBFRAME activities of two of our valuable community institutions: ExLibris and OCLC. ExLibris will describe their plans for using BIBFRAME linked data as defined by the Library of Congress with their system, Alma. And OCLC will follow with developments underway for supporting libraries that will be using BIBFRAME. These presentations emphasize how standard BIBFRAME is a key to our community’s integrated environments – where interchange is highly important.
