PCC and the Library of Congress strongly encourage the PCC membership and the broader library community to become more knowledgeable and attuned to the development and rollout of BIBFRAME and how it fits within libraries and the larger linked data sphere.
This site contains documents of interest to PCC members as the BIBFRAME Model develops and integrates into the PCC community.
