Purpose: Provides a forum for discussion of issues related to Linked Library Data and the role of library metadata in the Semantic web. Goals include: raising awareness of Semantic Web technologies, such as the Resource Description Framework (RDF) and the use of URIs as identifiers within bibliographic descriptions; promoting research on linked data challenges, such as domain modeling and vocabulary selection and design; and informing the ongoing development of existing metadata standards for Libraries, Archives and Cultural Heritage Institutions.

    BCMIG provides a forum for the discussion of conceptual models, such as IFLA-LRM and BIBFRAME 2.0, that serve as the basis for current cataloging standards or are expected to provide a foundation for future cataloging standards in a Linked Open Data environment. For the 2021 Core Interest Group Week, summer 2021, BCMIG is pleased to offer a presentation that addresses a fundamental topic in current conceptual model-based cataloging: what is entity-based description? 

    Title: Bibliographic Entities are Described by Sets

    Abstract: A set theoretical frame based on Svenonius's (2000, p.32-35; 2018, p.715) theory of bibliographic entities is the departure point for this short talk on entity description. This talk will briefly show how properties of bibliographic entity descriptions may be identified using a frequent pattern data mining algorithm over targeted sets of existing metadata descriptions. The MARC21 corpus used in this case was comprised of clustered sets of publishers and publisher locations from the library MARC21 records found in the Platform for Open Data (POD). POD is a data aggregation project involving member institutions of the IvyPlus Library Confederation and contains seventy million MARC21 records, forty million of which are unique.

    Presenter: Jim Hahn, Head of Metadata Research, University of Pennsylvania Libraries. "As the first Head of Metadata Research, Jim works collaboratively across the Libraries, developing a vision for the services, technologies and policies to enhance discovery of collections, and incorporating international standards and best practices for linked data and metadata.  He plays a critical role in the Penn Libraries' participation in the LD4P2 grant and the Share-VDE project, as well as developing future partnerships."
