  7. 7. BIBFRAME “The Initiative aims to re-envision and, in the long run, implement a new bibliographic environment for libraries that makes "the network" central and makes interconnectedness commonplace.” ! - Bibliographic Framework as a Web of Data: Linked Data Model and Supporting Services, Zepheira for the Library of Congress, November 21, 2012 ! !

BIBFRAME “The Initiative aims to re-envision and, in the long run, implement a new bibliographic environment for libraries that makes "the network" central and makes interconnectedness commonplace.” ! - Bibliographic Framework as a Web of Data: Linked Data Model and Supporting Services, Library of Congress, November 21, 2012 ! ! • memory organization (libraries, museums, archives) • community / users they server

  11. 11. Purpose and Promise • Purpose: MARC Replacement • Promise: But so much more • Purpose: Serving Libraries • Promise: Related memory organizations and the users / patrons they serve • Purpose: Leverage existing Web standards and speak with a consistent voice • Promise: Visibility, Discoverability and Effectiveness

  23. 23. BIBFRAME Profiles 24
  24. 24. Small is Beautiful • BIBFRAME common model - flexible, designed to accommodate the needs of our community. • Recognize creative tension between past and future • Recognize creative tension of being useful across communities, but also community specific • Profiles are a simple, small, subset to of the model to support a specific community or entity description but sharable in a global context 25
  25. 25. Demo!
  26. 26. RBMS Profile • Metadata patterns than make sense to your community • Designed to accelerate collaboration and discovery • Interoperable in a larger descriptive framework • Allowing for experimentation • Benefiting from not having to wait for it “to be done”
  27. 27. Value of Linking RBMS data • Linking provides access to related content - richer context and new discoveries • Materials can be enhanced by others in the field to add to the value of your content. • Don’t need to know the relationships in advance grows organically
  28. 28. General Technology Hype Cycle
  29. 29. Phases of Linked Data / BIBFRAME Adoption Experimenters Early Implementers Data Publishers
 & Connectors Mainstream Workflow Back Office Systems • Clarify Space • Determine the Need • Define a Foundation • Draft Specifications • Test the Assumptions • Draft Standards • Evaluate Data, Processes, & Gaps • Begin to work at scale • Use other’s data • Participate – Publish, Share, Connect • “Final” Standards & Best Practices • New businesses and models • “There’s Linked Data in there!?”
  30. 30. Phases of Linked Data / BIBFRAME Adoption
  31. 31. Conclusions • BIBFRAME “MARC Replacement” but so much more • Serving not just libraries but related memory organizations and the users / patrons they serve • Recognizing the wide variability within libraries • No more gaming! • Leverage existing Web standards and speak with a consistent voice to support more effective visibility and discoverability of assets • BIBFRAME is a bridge between the best of the Web and Libraries • A mechanism for weaving the trust and credibility of Libraries into the Web.
