After a well-received presentation at the 2015 Denver conference, Jeremy Nelson returns to review and expand on the topic of BIBFRAME and linked data. The promise of BIBFRAME and other library linked-data vocabularies is that library data can be better integrated with the wider web through better descriptions for search engines and other “big data” applications from various corporate and non-profits. BIBFRAME specifically is attempting to reducing redundancy in catalog efforts and improving the operational efficiencies in libraries.

This interactive presentation introduces the concepts behind library linked data and BIBFRAME, the Library of Congress linked-data vocabulary for replacing MARC for library bibliographic data, and one example of a BIBFRAME-based catalog called bibcat, sponsored by the Library of Congress. Some early examples of BIBFRAME-based technologies will also be demonstrated for the interest group.

Cost is $50 per person
