RDA and the New BIBFRAME: Is Linked Data the Solution? - Philip Schreur, Head, Metadata Department, Stanford University Libraries

Moderator: Bronwen Bitetti, Associate Librarian, Center for Curatorial Studies, Bard College

The implementation of RDA (Resource Description and Access) by the Library of Congress as well as many national libraries and leading academic institutions in 2013 marks a significant shift in the library cataloging community. Built for the digital environment and capable of expressing complex relationships among entities and their manifestations, RDA promises increased access to resources of heterogeneous formats. In this session we will consider the impact of RDA post-implementation on end-user groups, examine the viability of using FRBR group 1 entities to describe graphic materials and their related manifestations, and speculate on RDA’s future within BIBFRAME, the new data model for web-based bibliographic description proposed by the Bibliographic Framework Initiative.
