OCLC and the Library of Congressóworking together to clarify approaches to library linked data

OCLC and the Library of Congress are actively engaged and committed to working together to address library challenges using linked data technologies.

Starting in August 2014, the two groups initiated monthly strategic communications followed by a joint technical workshop in September to dig deeper into the technical complexities. Topics discussed at these meetings included:

  • Structure and content of BIBFRAME pilot records
  • WorldCat holdings use cases
  • Similarities and differences between BIBFRAME and Schema.org SchemaBibExtend vocabularies

The result was a commitment to co-author a white paper that will clarify how both approaches fit together to address specific library needs and challenges.

Look for additional white paper updates and joint presentation details at future conferences and events including the ALA Midwinter conference in late January.


Summary: OCLC and the Library of Congress are actively engaged and committed to working together to address library challenges using linked data technologies.
