 I.    Introductions

Including any brief announcements (open positions, special projects, etc.)

 II.   SHARE-VDE Project and Casalini Libri’s steps towards the supply of BIBFRAME data

Michele Casalini will describe the prototype SHARE Virtual Discovery Environment, a project that has three interrelated goals:

1.  Experimenting with MARC records enriched with URIs through the reconciliation processes of varying forms of the same entity

2.  Conversion into BIBFRAME 2.0 datasets

3.  Publication on a three-layered portal following the BIBFRAME data model (person/work -- instances (publication) -- item levels)

The roadmap to produce and distribute BIBFRAME data in conjunction with the supply of print and digital resources will also be addressed.

III. Discussions and experience-sharing

  • Linked-data projects: in Europe, your library, etc.
  •  Other discussion topics (as time permits)

 Please bring suggested topics and questions of interest to you!
