Bibliographic Framework (BIBFRAME) in Action | Library of Congress

The BIBFRAME Pilot is underway and is a component of a major effort by the Library of Congress to lead the library community into the linked open data world. Developing BIBFRAME requires involvement of information specialists to create a new ecosystem in which bibliographic data are compatible with the broader World Wide Web environment. Speakers will discuss progress to date, relevance of BIBFRAME in today’s environment, and the current status of the BIBFRAME Editor, including a demonstration of the modifications to the Editor from a programmer’s perspective.
