What’s Your Bibframe Data Look Like? – The Current State and Challenges of Bibframe Linked Data Interoperability
Thursday, January 19, 1:00 – 2:00pm CT
As Bibframe is adopted across the library industry, the topic of interoperability is one that must be addressed so that metadata continues to serve the purpose it has for decades in the MARC format. Presented by the Core Linked Data Interest Group (LDIG), this webinar will showcase three guest speakers who will share their thoughts on various aspects of interoperability followed by time for questions and discussion. The session will be recorded and the link will be posted in the LDIG group afterward.
Nancy Lorimer of Stanford will share her deep understanding of cataloging workflows to describe how cataloging requirements and expectations in Bibframe relate to interoperability.
Kirk Hess from OCLC will discuss the technical aspects of interoperability when working with RDF data compared to MARC record data.
Finally, Jim Hahn from University of Pennsylvania will discuss his work with differing “flavors” of Bibframe data given that ShareVDE’s Bibframe data is slightly different than the Library of Congress’s Bibframe data.
