About this Item

The SHARE-VDE Project: Fulfilling the Potential of BIBFRAME
Michele 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 (Person/Work, Instance, Item) is established. The deliverables of the project include the conversion into BIBFRAME of over 100 million bibliographic and authority records for the entire catalogue of the participating institutions. The SHARE-VDE project is carried out through discussion and experimentation of the options for the native RDF data creation, enhancement and sharing of all type of resources with the library, archive and museum communities, also revealing the richness within the data of existing collections, often hidden or unexpressed in a traditional catalogue.
