Experiments in BIBFRAME: A modular approach
Nancy Fallgren, Metadata Specialist Librarian, National Library of Medicine

The National Library of Medicine has been collaborating with Library of Congress on BIBFRAME development and experimentation from the Early Experimenters to the current Implementers. The goal of BIBFRAME is to develop a data sharing standard to replace MARC that is web-based, flexible, and extensible beyond the traditional library cataloging community (i.e., rule agnostic). To that end, NLM is focusing on flexibility and extensibility by experimenting with a ‘modular’ approach to BIBFRAME. This modeling approach is comprised of a core BIBFRAME vocabulary designed to be extended with existing descriptive schemes already developed by the various sectors of the cultural heritage community. Nancy will talk about this approach and the status of NLM’s experimentation.

BIBFLOW: An IMLS Project
Xiaoli Li, Co-head of Content Support Services Department, University of California Davis

BIBFLOW is a two-year project of the UC Davis University Library and Zepheira, funded by IMLS. Its official title is “Reinventing Cataloging: Models for the Future of Library Operations” and we are investigating the future of library technical services, i.e., cataloging and related workflows, in light of modern technology infrastructure such as the Web and new data models and formats such as Resource Description and Access (RDA) and BIBFRAME, the new encoding and exchange format in development by the Library of Congress. Xiaoli Li will be provide an update on the progress of this work.

3:00pm - 4:00pm
OCLC Links and Entities: The Library Data Revolution McCormick Place West
W474b
Description :

Join OCLC’s Ted Fons and Richard Wallis as they discuss how library data stored in an entity-based architecture will revolutionize library workflows. In this session, you will learn how entities (powered by linked data) will create new approaches to cataloging, resource sharing and discovery of your materials on the Web. Plus, attendees will get practical tips to get started today.
