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.

  • Slides from the ALA 2016 Midwinter Library of Congress BIBFRAME Update Forum (Sunday, Jan. 10, 2016)

This session is another in a series that introduces BIBFRAME. The speakers demonstrate the BIBFRAME Editor, the tool to input bibliographic data into the BIBFRAME format, and highlight other BIBFRAME developments.

BIBFRAME is a major community challenge to provide an alternative to the deeply embedded MARC formats that will be more compatible with the Internet and linked data environment, and that offers new opportunities to leverage information. This update at the Annual Meeting of the American Library Association in Las Vegas, Nev., shares information on current developments as work continues on this significant effort.
