Jointly released by OCLC and the Library of Congress, this white paper compares and contrasts the compatible linked data initiatives at both institutions. It is an executive summary of a more detailed technical analysis that will be released later this year.
Highlights From the Report
- Work on the Library of Congress’ BIBFRAME vocabulary has advanced nearly to the point of testing its use for original cataloging, which they will be doing later this year
- OCLC has published linked data on WorldCat.org using both the Schema.org vocabulary as well as extensions to that vocabulary defined at BiblioGraph.net
- LC and OCLC continue to work collaboratively to identify the different use cases of these efforts and how they complement each other in a rich bibliographic universe.
