Implementing BIBFRAME: The UC Davis BIBFLOW Project

Registration is now open for our fall event!

Monday, November 16, 2015

 Registration is closed for this event
Refreshments, 5:00-6:00 PM; Meeting & Program, 6:00-7:45 PM


The Library of Congress' Bibliographic Framework Initiative (BIBFRAME), a library linked data model, offers the potential for rich bibliographic description of resources. How can it be adopted in an environment constrained by complex cataloging workflows and interdependencies on a large ecosystem of data, software and service providers? What impact will the implementation of BIBFRAME have on the daily operations of the library? The UC Davis IMLS funded BIBFLOW project was designed to investigate these questions. The area of greatest focus for the project is the impact on library technical services, i.e., cataloging and related workflows. Xiaoli Li, a primary member of the project team, will share her experiences and lessons learned. She will also give a preview of the linked data cataloging tools and workflows developed by the project and solicit feedback for the creation of a linked data implications roadmap. The information presented will help to fill an important gap in libraries’ understanding of the linked data landscape and work towards completing the puzzle of applications of linked data in the library community.

About the Presenter

Xiaoli Li received her MLS from the Southern Connecticut State University. She worked at Yale University Library and University of Washington Libraries before moving to University of California Davis where she is Co-head of Content Support Services Department. Since May 2014, Xiaoli has been part of the BIBFLOW project team which consists of members from the UC Davis University Library and Zepheira. The project, funded by Institute of Museum and Library Sciences, investigates the future of library technical services, i.e., cataloging and related workflows, in light of modern technology infrastructure such as the Web and new data models and formats such as Resource Description and Access (RDA) and BIBFRAME/Linked Open Data.
