MARC Format Transition Interest Group (ALCTS LITA)

Description:  For at least the last five years, librarians have been talking about moving away from MARC as a descriptive standard, to linked data, and many different library linked data projects are underway. There’s been an even longer trend to less local editing of bibliographic records, and increased batch processing. This means it’s still unclear how the transition from MARC to linked data will occur, and what will happen to the library catalog. Will there be “original cataloging” in linked data? Will information seekers discover library materials through a web search and be routed back to the local library via links? Does this mean libraries will have to continue to maintain parallel MARC and linked data systems? Or does an “outside in” approach make more sense, where library discovery would be enhanced by linked data sets created outside the library? Find answers to these questions and more at this panel session.

Where:  GWCC, Room B204

When:  January 21, 3:00-4:00PM
