CaMMS Forum: BIBFRAME Experimentation and Development
When: Sunday, June 28, 2015 - 1:00pm to 2:00pm
Location: Moscone Convention Center 132 (N)
BIBFRAME, in the early stages of development, has moved into a time rich
with experimentation and possibilities. Come and join us for a lively
hour of presentation and discussion, covering experimental projects
underway at the University of Washington and about vocabulary
development occurring with a group of partner libraries.
*Speaker 1: Joseph Kiegel*
The University of Washington has been working actively on BIBFRAME since
2014.This presentation describes three separate projects.The first
involved staff training in RDF and BIBFRAME, and then a review of
converted MARC records.The process of organizing for the review is
described and sample results are given.In a second project, a mapping
from RDA Core to BIBFRAME was developed and tested using native RDA
cataloging.A third project, which is in its initial stages, involves
assembling a body of topically related material in CONTENTdm, MARC and
EAD and converting them to BIBFRAME.
*Speaker 2: Nancy Fallgren*:
The National Library of Medicine ('NLM') has proposed that BIBFRAME
should be a lean, broadly shareable vocabulary that is supplemented with
more specificity from other more specialized descriptive schema. Toward
that goal, NLM has been collaborating with Zepheira, George Washington
University, and University of California, Davis, on development of
Zepheira's BF Lite vocabulary. This presentation will provide an update
on the progress of that collaboration.
*Joseph Kiegel* is Head of Cataloging and Metadata Services at the
University of Washington Libraries in Seattle.Beginning his career as a
cataloger, he has held supervisory positions in cataloging and
monographic acquisitions for 30 years.He has been active in the UW
Metadata Implementation Group and in an XSLT Study Group.He has served
on committees in the Orbis Cascade Alliance regarding collaborative
technical services and the implementation of a shared ILS.He has an MLIS
and an MA in Russian from the University of Iowa.
*Nancy Fallgren*is the Metadata Librarian in the Cataloging and Metadata
Management Section of the National Library of Medicine. She became
involved with BIBFRAME in October 2012 as NLM's representative to the
Library of Congress' Early Experimenters group and has been actively
working on BIBFRAME development ever since. Nancy leads NLM's BIBFRAME
experimentation team and is also a member of NLM's Linked Data
Infrastructure Working Group.
