--------------------------

The LITA/ALCTS MARC Formats Transition Interest Group is pleased to host
two presentations on transitioning MARC metadata to other formats and
environments at ALA Annual in Chicago, IL.

Date: Saturday, June 29, 2013
Time: 3:00-4:00 PM
Location: E351 McCormick Place

*"On BIBFRAME Instance"*
**
Presenter: Kevin Ford, Digital Project Coordinator, Network Development and
MARC Standards Office, Library of Congress

This presentation will explore the nature of a BIBFRAME Instance within the
BIBFRAME Model which is currently being developed to replace the MARC
Bibliographic communication format.  Defined as "an individual, material
embodiment of a BIBFRAME Work that can be physical or digital in nature," a
BIBFRAME Instance is understood to be an atomic unit of a specific BIBFRAME
Work.  The Library of Congress's Network Development and MARC Standards
Office has been experimenting with this definition by way of transforming
MARC Bibliographic records to BIBFRAME resources, an exercise that
invariably raises the question: "How do we best identify, and create,
BIBFRAME Instances from MARC records?"  A number of data elements in MARC -
such as provider information, physical details, and publisher
identification numbers - present themselves as good starting points, but no
one data point is perfect.  A number of them, in fact, must be used as part
of a complicated calculus to identify and create BIBFRAME Instances.  This
presentation will look closely at the equation behind identifying BIBFRAME
Instances from MARC data points, LC's current experimentation with
transforming MARC records, and it will review future implications stemming
from a more atomic approach to bibliographic description.

*"Redesigning the English Short Title Catalog: From MARC to Data Agnostic
Triplets." *
Presenters: Brian Geiger, Co-Director of the English Short Title Catalog
for North America, and Carl Stahmer, Associate Director of the English
Broadside Ballad Archive

The English Short Title Catalog is the most comprehensive guide available
to the output of the press in the English-speaking world before 1801. The
project is both a bibliography that aims to record every distinct item
printed during the “hand-press era” in England and its territories, and a
union catalog that lists both copies of those items held by libraries and,
more recently, digital reproductions of those copies.  Begun in the late
1970s, the database currently contains about 500,000 records and more than
3 million holdings. The ESTC is co-managed by the British Library (BL) and
the Center for Bibliographical Studies and Research at the University of
California, Riverside, and is freely available at http://estc.bl.uk.
 Although the ESTC is an exemplar scholarly research tool, over the last
few years it has become increasingly clear that the project needs to be
updated and enhanced in order to capitalize on the latest available
technologies. Hundreds of thousands of records from contributing libraries
and an ever-growing metadata collection from online archives need to be
matched against the ESTC to enrich and improve the file, a number that is
prohibitively expensive to process with the traditional means of student
matchers and professional catalogers.  Researchers, no longer content to
simply search for and download records, increasingly want both to edit and
comment on ESTC data and to harvest and manipulate ESTC data for their own
research. Traditional library catalog records and access software, however,
make this kind of data curation, mining and acquisition cumbersome at best
and, in many cases, impossible. Data transformation will help to ensure
that the ESTC meets the changing needs of its users and partners and, by
harnessing their energy and enthusiasm, continues to grow in size and
accuracy and remains the central organizing tool of the printed history of
the early modern era.

We hope you will join us.
