Encoding Standards, Linked Data, BIBFRAME at Midwinter

Posted By James L. Soe Nyun, Wednesday, February 3, 2016

Interested in linked data, BIBFRAME or MARC news from the recent ALA Midwinter 2016 in Boston? I've written up minutes to several of the meetings I was able to attend during the conference, and these should be of particular interest to folks with an interest in encoding standards.

Some trends:

  • Full BIBFRAME implementation remains on the horizon, though closer than before.
  • MARC is definitely not dead, though it definitely is eyeing a linked data future.
  • Small linked data projects abound, and they seem closer to knitting together to form useful interfaces and tools.
  • Some linked data practitioners are getting more interested in the social space around their work, and are looking closer at issues of diversity, inclusiveness and privacy.

See the minutes at:

Please post your thoughts in the comments!
