*NISO Webinar: Experimenting with BIBFRAME: Reports from Early Adopters*

*Date: *April 8, 2015

*Time: *1:00 – 2:30 p.m. Eastern time

*Event webpage:*



In May 2011, the Library of Congress officially launched a new modeling
initiative, Bibliographic Framework Initiative, as a linked
data alternative to MARC. The Library then announced in November 2012 the
proposed model, called BIBFRAME. Since then, the library world is moving
from mainly theorizing about the BIBFRAME model to attempts to implement
practical experimentation and testing. This experimentation is iterative,
and continues to shape the model so that it’s stable enough and broadly
acceptable enough for adoption.

In this webinar, several institutions will share their progress in
experimenting with BIBFRAME within their library system. They will
discuss the existing, developing, and planned projects happening at their
institutions. Challenges and opportunities in exploring and
implementing BIBFRAME in their institutions will be discussed as well.
Topics and speakers are:

• *Experimental Mode: The National Library of Medicine and experiences with
BIBFRAME* – *Nancy Fallgren*, Metadata Specialist Librarian, National
Library of Medicine, National Institutes of Health, US Department of Health
and Human Services (DHHS)

• *Exploring BIBFRAME at a Small Academic Library* – *Jeremy Nelson*,
Metadata and Systems Librarian, Colorado College

• *Linked Data for Libraries (LD4L)* – *Nancy Lorimer*, Head, Metadata
Dept, Stanford University Libraries
