What’s your Bibframe data look like? - Current State and Challenges of Bibframe Linked Data Interoperability
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 as for decades in the MARC format. This webinar will showcase three guest speakers who will share their thoughts on various aspects of interoperability followed by time for questions and discussion. 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.
