Implications of BIBFRAME and Linked Data for Libraries & Publishers

While Linked Data is growing in interest in the library and publishing communities, its evolution and adoption is widespread in many industries. Academic libraries and vendors alike have numerous data silos, incapable of communicating effectively with other repositories and/or the broader web. The library community is rife with outdated business models, in part due to data formats and limitations. New ecosystems and integrations will be borne out of transforming these data silos into the broader and more accessible web of data.

BIBFRAME is the planned replacement for MARC, and while the framework is being evolved in working groups such as LD4P and LC, organizations are already beginning to experiment and deploy new business models around it.  Casalini Libri will share their foray into delivering BIBFRAME resources in addition to MARC records for customers. The transformation has begun.

 The Library.Link Network brings together libraries and their providers to inform the Web of their detailed, vetted and authoritative data about art, music, books/ebooks, special collections and more. MARC records are transformed into BIBFRAME resources, assets linked, and then published in a variety of vocabularies to the web for search engines and other applications to consume.  Users finding library resources on the web or other applications can be driven to the institution’s discovery layer for authentication and fulfillment. 

Due to the highly structured data in the library and publisher worlds, these organizations are well positioned to leverage existing data into the BIBFRAME and/or Linked Data realm.
