BIBFRAME: New Vocabulary, New Experiments

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

The Bibliographic Framework Initiative (BIBFRAME) is still a work in progress. Development, experimentation, and testing continue as the library community looks ahead to life after MARC. This program will highlight recent developments including: the new BIBFRAME 2.0 model and vocabulary; the BIBFRAME pilot at the Library of Congress, which tested the ability of cataloging staff to create bibliographic descriptions in BIBFRAME; a demo of the BIBFRAME editor used for the LC pilot; and community experimentations with BIBFRAME and data conversions. Attendees will enhance their understanding of the framework that is intended to replace MARC and the challenges and successes in making the transition.
