The webinar will look at the complexities of moving from MARC to BIBFRAME, and from BIBFRAME back to MARC. Although many libraries are experimenting with BIBFRAME as the new standard for recording bibliographic data, many institutions will require MARC data for their cataloging needs for years to come. The webinar will also look at other notable areas of progress at the Library of Congress as part of its BIBFRAME initiative.
Participants will come away from this webinar with an understanding of:
- The challenges presented by mapping from MARC to BIBFRAME
- The challenges presented by mapping from BIBFRAME to MARC
- BIBFRAME progress at the Library of Congress
