These will be put into perspective with other BIBFRAME, Linked Data, and Semantic Web initiatives taking place in the broader information community. Speakers, from the Library of Congress, will give an overview of continuing BIBFRAME work among the participants in BIBFRAME Pilot Phase 2. They will provide updates on LC and BIBFRAME 2.0 implementation, work on profiles in anticipation of a BIBFRAME Pilot Phase 2, and continuing LC BIBFRAME work with special formats (A/V, sound recordings, and prints and photographs). In addition, they will review LD4P (Linked Data for Production) initiatives and LC involvement with them, the Program for Cooperative Cataloging (PCC) BIBFRAME Task Group, and RDA’s influence on BIBFRAME 2.
