    Mini-workshop: Hands-on with Marva<u1:p></u1:p><o:p></o:p>

    You are invited to a joint ALA Linked Data Interest Group and LD4 mini-workshop that will be a hands-on introduction to Marva, LC's Bibframe editor, led by Paul Frank from the Library of Congress Policy, Training, and Cooperative Programs Division. The session will be a high-level introductory lesson to Marva and how it can be used to catalog Bibframe resources, as it is used at the Library of Congress.  If you feel intrepid, you can participate by opening a browser on your own computer and following along as Paul demonstrates how to catalog a couple of resources, such as a monograph or a music CD.<u1:p></u1:p><o:p></o:p>
