Expanding the Foundation for RDA as Linked Data: Mapping MARC21 Bibliographic to LRM/RDA/RDF

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

The University of Washington Libraries is committed to using RDA/LRM/RDF (RDA as linked data) to represent RDA description sets. RDA/LRM/RDF has not been widely adopted, and few test datasets exist. This could change rapidly if libraries transform legacy MARC data to RDA/LRM/RDF. Presenters describe a mapping project between the MARC21 bibliographic standard and RDA/LRM/RDF. In addition to describing the cross-organizational team, which includes information professionals from the University of Washington, the KB (the National Library of the Netherlands), and Emory University, the presentation addresses project workflows managed at the University of Washington. A live tour of the GitHub repository follows, with demonstrations of the work performed, and a call for additional collaborators. The project builds on work from the University of Washington, the RDA Steering Committee, and the MARC of Quality, including data produced by catalogers using RDA/LRM/RDF in Sinopia, an expanded set of updated Sinopia resource templates, and a transformation tool using Python and RDF Mapping Language (RML) to generate and publish BIBFRAME versions of our RDA data in Sinopia.
