The Bibliographic Framework Initiative (BIBFRAME) is a major community challenge to provide an alternative to the deeply embedded MARC formats that will be more compatible with the Web and Internet environment that offers new opportunities to leverage information. The program speakers will address multiple facets of the development. Visit BIBFRAME at ALA for information on additional BIBFRAME programs and presentations.
