Bibliographic Framework Transition Initiative

The Library of Congress has announced that it has contracted with Zepheira to help accelerate the launch of the Bibliographic Framework Initiative.  A major focus of the project is to translate the MARC 21 format to a Linked Data (LD) model while retaining as much as possible the robust and beneficial aspects of the historical format.  Zepheira brings to the project extensive experience in LD technology for library applications. Further information is available on the Library of Congress website
