ALCTS webinar: Linked Data and Annotations: What We Stand to Gain


Date: Wednesday, March 21, 2018

All webinars are one hour in length and begin at 11am Pacific, noon Mountain, 1pm Central, and 2pm Eastern time.


This is the second session of a six-part series.  View the other sessions in this series.


This series of six webinars builds on the introductory series om MARC to BIBFRAME: Linked Data on the Ground, which was presented in fall 2016 and is now available free of charge. It describes the continuing BIBFRAME initiatives taking place at the Library of Congress as well as within the broader information community.  


Description: When the library world moved from catalog cards to MARC, we gained the ability to share catalog records and develop online catalogs with more flexible searching and filtering. A shift to BIBFRAME and linked data is another opportunity to gain new abilities. Princeton University Library has been exploring how linked data can turn simple MARC textual notes into a navigable network of relationships as part of our LD4P project. Join us to hear how we have converted inscriptions in dedication volumes sent to Jacques Derrida into linked data.


Learning outcomes: Upon completion of this session, attendees will learn how the W3C Web Annotation model can be used to encode dedications. Attendees will also learn about the specific processes and tools Princeton employed to transcribe and encode their Derrida dedications.


Who should attend? Anyone interested in how BIBFRAME and linked data can apply to copy-specific information.



Joyce Bell is the Head of Cataloging and Metadata Services at Princeton University Library. She retains a commitment to her first library position as an Arabic cataloger by ongoing involvement with the Middle Eastern Librarians Association and current membership on the Asian and African Materials section of ALA’s Committee on Cataloging. Joyce has been leading Princeton’s participation in the Linked Data for Production (LD4P) project with a talented and dedicated group of staff.
