    The ALA Core MARC Formats Transition Interest Group seeks speakers to present at its meeting during the ALA Core Virtual Interest Group Week! The meeting will be held on Friday, July 30th, 2021, at 2 pm Central Time.

    Libraries are actively exploring ways to transition from MARC and use linked data services to enhance discovery and facilitate use of collections. The ALA Core MARC Formats Transition Interest Group provides a forum to discuss and learn about ongoing efforts to transition from the MARC Standard for bibliographic data and examines new approaches and strategies for implementing bibliographic data models within the framework of linked open data and semantic web technology. If your library has done such a project, we want to hear from you! Consider submitting your proposal for a 15 to 20-minute presentation at the Core MARC Formats Transition Interest Group session during the ALA Core Interest Group Week!

    Potential topics include, but are not limited to:
    • Crafting linked open data to enhance discovery of your library collections
    • Library efforts to enhance and/or "sanitize" the library data in preparation for a format transition/transformation
    • Learning and research experiences in transitioning MARC to linked open data
    • Lessons learned from system migration and/or data transition

    In your proposal, please include your name, email, job title, and affiliated institution of the presenter(s), the title of the presentation, and an abstract of less than 300 words.
    Please submit your proposal to the Interest Group's Programming Co-chairs, Brian Clark (bpclark2@ua.edu) and Cindy Tian (ttian@nd.edu), by Wednesday, July 14, 2021.

    We look forward to hearing from you!

    Sincerely,
    Brian Clark, Cindy Tian
