NISO/DCMI Joint Webinar: Translating the Library Catalog from MARC into Linked Data: An Update on the Bibliographic Framework Initiative

January 23, 2013
1:00 – 2:30 p.m. (Eastern Time)

In May 2012, the Library of Congress announced a new modeling initiative focused on reflecting the MARC 21 library standard as a Linked Data model for the Web, with an initial model to be proposed by the consulting company Zepheira.  The goal of the initiative is to translate the MARC 21 format to a Linked Data model while retaining the richness and benefits of existing data in the historical format.

In this webinar, Eric Miller of Zepheira will report on progress towards this important goal, starting with an analysis of the translation problem and concluding with potential migration scenarios for a broad-based transition from MARC to a new bibliographic framework.

The complete agenda and registration information is available on the NISO website.

Registration closes on January 23, 2013 at 12:00 pm Eastern.
