NISO/DCMI Webinar: "International Bibliographic Standards, Linked Data,
    and the Impact on Library Cataloging"
DATE: 24 August 2011
TIME: 1:00pm - 2:30pm EDT (17:00-19:30 UTC)
REGISTRATION: http://www.niso.org/news/events/2011/dcmi/linked


The International Federation of Library Associations and Institutions (IFLA)
is responsible for the development and maintenance of International Standard
Bibliographic Description (ISBD), UNIMARC, and the "Functional Requirements"
family for bibliographic records (FRBR), authority data (FRAD), and subject
authority data (FRSAD). ISBD underpins the MARC family of formats used by
libraries world-wide for many millions of catalog records, while FRBR is a
relatively new model optimized for users and the digital environment. These
metadata models, schemas, and content rules are now being expressed in the
Resource Description Framework language for use in the Semantic Web.

This webinar provides a general update on the work being undertaken. It
describes the development of an Application Profile for ISBD to specify the
sequence, repeatability, and mandatory status of its elements. It discusses
issues involved in deriving linked data from legacy catalogue records based
on monolithic and multi-part schemas following ISBD and FRBR, such as the
duplication which arises from copy cataloging and FRBRization. The webinar
provides practical examples of deriving high-quality linked data from the
vast numbers of records created by libraries, and demonstrates how a shift
of focus from records to linked-data triples can provide more efficient and
effective user-centered resource discovery services.


Gordon Dunsire is a freelance consultant with 25 years of experience working
in academic libraries and ten years in digital library research. He is a
member of IFLA's ISBD/XML Study Group and FRBR Review Group, and he chairs
the IFLA Namespaces Task Group. He is currently a member of a W3C Incubator
Group on Library Linked Data.

Thomas Baker, Chief Information Officer (Communications, Research and
Development) of the Dublin Core Metadata Initiative, was recently co-chair
of the W3C Semantic Web Deployment Working Group and currently co-chairs a
W3C Incubator Group on Library Linked Data.
