BIBFRAME Model Overview


The Library of Congress has launched the Bibliographic Framework Transition Initiative to better accommodate future needs of the library community. A major focus of the initiative will be to determine a transition path for the MARC 21 exchange format to more Web based, Linked Data standards. Zepheiraand The Library of Congress are working together to develop a Linked Data model, vocabulary and enabling tools / services for supporting this Initiative.

BIBFRAME.ORG provides an overview of this effort. This site offers:

  • demonstration area where the model is being tested and displayed using different test suites of data
  • View of the BIBFRAME vocabulary along with supporting formal specifications
  • Educational resource on how the BIBFRAME vocabulary relates to MARC21 fields and subfields
  • Code and supporting services.
