NISO Virtual Conference: BIBFRAME & Real World Applications of Linked Bibliographic Data

Wednesday, June 15, 2016
11:00 A.M.-5:00 P.M., EDT

Preliminary Agenda: http://www.niso.org/news/events/2016/virtual_conference/jun15_virtualconf/

In the four years since the Library of Congress launched the BIBFRAME project, a tremendous amount of progress has been made in transferring traditional bibliographic information into new structures that are more grounded in linked-data and web-centric principles. This virtual conference will explore implementations of BIBFRAME data, and related approaches to sharing and interacting with it. Speakers will address active projects based on linked data and how those services are improving interactions and discovery of information resources.

Confirmed speakers include: Shana McDanold, Georgetown University; Carolyn Hansen, University of Cincinnati; Ted Lawless, Thomson Reuters; Michael Lauruhn, Elsevier; Tim Thompson, Princeton University; Eric Miller, Zepheira; and Carl Stahmer, University of California-Davis.

NISO virtual conferences are six-hour events that are held online in a webinar-like format. Two breaks (one for lunch, one mid-afternoon) for the comfort and convenience of attendees are scheduled into the day. You’ll get the time to adequately examine a complex topic from a variety of perspectives with the convenience of virtual participation!

Registration is per site (access for one computer) and closes at 4:00pm (EDT) on Tuesday, June 14, 2016 (the day prior to the conference). Discounts are available to NISO members and students. Can’t be with us for the whole program? All virtual conference registrants receive access to the recording of the event for one year, so don’t hesitate to register for the event even if travel or other obligations preclude you from attendance on the day of the live broadcast.
