The Bibliographic Framework Initiative, or BIBFRAME, is intended to provide a replacement to the MARC format as an encoding standard for library catalogs. Its aim is to move library data into a Linked Data format, allowing it to interact with other data on the Web. In this session, Emily Nimsakont, the NLC’s Cataloging Librarian, will cover the basics of BIBFRAME, describe what it can provide for users of library catalogs that MARC can’t, and outline what librarians should be aware of regarding this change in the cataloging landscape.

  • Beyond MARC BIBFRAME and the Future of Bibliographic Data Emily Dust Nimsakont Cataloging Librarian • Nebraska Library Commission NCompass Live • January 2, 2014 Photo Credit: http://www.flickr.com/photos/28376044@N00/4350621750/
  • What is BIBFRAME?
  • “The Bibliographic Framework Initiative (BIBFRAME) is an undertaking by the Library of Congress and the community to better accommodate future needs of the library community. A major focus of the initiative will be to determine a transition path for the MARC 21 exchange format to more Web based, Linked Data standards. Zepheira and The Library of Congress are working together to develop a Linked Data model, vocabulary and enabling tools / services for supporting this Initiative.” - http://bibframe.org

  • A History of BIBFRAME Photo Credit: http://www.flickr.com/photos/37657778@N07/4867695239/
  • May 2011 – Bibliographic Framework Initiative announced by LC October 2011 – Bibliographic Framework Plan published – Linked Data model to be used
  • November 2012 – BIBFRAME Draft Model & Primer published
  • January 2013 – bibframe.org launched at ALA Midwinter August 2013 – discussion papers updated (use cases, annotations, resource types, authority)
  • What is Linked Data, anyway? Photo Credit: http://www.flickr.com/photos/49968232@N00/12364944
  • Wikipedia says… “Linked Data describes a method of publishing structured data, so that it can be interlinked and become more useful. It builds upon standard web technologies, such as HTTP and URIs - but rather than using them to serve web pages for human readers, it extends them to share information in a way that can be read automatically by computers.” http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Linked_Data
  • resource links to resource links to resource links to resource links to resource
  • links to data data data data links to data data links to data data data links to data data data
  • HTML <h1>This is a heading.</h1> <p>This is a paragraph.</p>

  • Relationships are key Photo credit: http://www.flickr.com/photos/brenda-starr/3509344100/

  • BIBFRAME Model & Vocabulary http://bibframe.org
  • Core Classes • • • • Work Instance Authority Annotation
  • Work “Resource reflecting a conceptual essence of the cataloging resource”
  • Instance “Resource reflecting an individual, material embodiment of the Work”
  • Authority “Resource reflecting key authority concepts that have defined relationships reflected in the Work and Instance”
  • Annotation “Resource that asserts additional information about other BIBFRAME resource”
  • BIBFRAME & RDA
  • “RDA is an important source of elements in the vocabulary for BIBFRAME, even though it generally aims to be independent of any particular set of cataloging rules.” http://www.loc.gov/bibframe/faqs/

  • “The change in rules for metadata creation, represented by RDA, will also help library metadata to be more useful, though perhaps to a lesser extent than BIBFRAME.” Jason W.

  • Timeline? “The MARC standard is responsible for the creation of millions of bibliographic records from all parts of the globe. We recognize the need to continue supporting MARC during the transition, and, most likely, for years to come as libraries determine their timetable for making a change.” http://bibframe.org/contribute Photo Credit: http://www.flickr.com/photos/8525214@N06/9661431073
  • How will catalogers’ jobs change? Photo Credit: http://www.flickr.com/photos/77476789@N00/2304874364
  • “I believe we will certainly need to change most of our cataloging habits, standards, an d tools…but that losing the quality and granularity of the data itself should not be a requirement.” Gildas Illien, BnF http://www.niso.org/publi cations/isq/2013/v25no4
