Interested in learning more about BIBFRAME and Linked Data? Wondering how to prepare your library catalog? If so, please join NOTSL as we learn about Linked Data, the Library of Congress BIBFRAME Pilot, as well as practical applications of these topics.
NOTSL is pleased to welcome the following speakers for this important topic.
The LC BIBFRAME Pilot
Presented by Paul Frank, Acting Coordinator, NACO and SACO Programs, Library of Congress
The Library of Congress (LC) launched a BIBFRAME Pilot in June 2015. The pilot commenced with training in Linked Data and Semantic Web principles, and in September 2015, forty Library of Congress catalogers began creating BIBFRAME descriptions for monograph, serial, notated music, sound recording, audio visual, and cartographic resources.
This presentation will discuss the background to the LC BIBFRAME Pilot – the training in Linked Data and Semantic Web principles, the development of BIBFRAME Editor RDA profiles, and the hands-on instruction in using the BIBFRAME Editor RDA profiles. Successes as well as bumps along the way will be covered.
BIBFRAME for Dummies: What Can Catalogers Do now?
Presented by Roman Panchyshyn, Catalog Librarian and Assistant Professor, Kent State University
BIBFRAME and linked data are current hot topics in the cataloging and metadata community. The goal of this presentation will be to expose cataloging staff to some of the current tools, vocabulary, and projects underway with BIBFRAME so that they can understand the scope of the BIBFRAME project and if possible, choose to participate at an entry level. It will cover the basic terms and vocabulary of linked data, discuss what projects are currently out there, and what tools they can use to experiment or get started.
