This is the second session of a six-part series. View the other sessions in this series.

When the library world moved from catalog cards to MARC, we gained the ability to share catalog records and develop online catalogs with more flexible searching and filtering. A shift to BIBFRAME and linked data is another opportunity to gain new abilities. Princeton University Library has been exploring how linked data can turn simple MARC textual notes into a navigable network of relationships as part of our LD4P project. Join us to hear how we have converted inscriptions in dedication volumes sent to Jacques Derrida into linked data.

Learning Outcomes

Upon completion of this session, attendees will learn how the W3C Web Annotation model can be used to encode dedications. Attendees will also learn about the specific processes and tools Princeton employed to transcribe and encode their Derrida dedications.

Who Should Attend

Anyone interested in how BIBFRAME and linked data can apply to copy-specific information.
