NCompass Live: Life After MARC: Cataloging Tools of the Future

NCompass live smallJoin us for next week’s NCompass Live, “Life After MARC: Cataloging Tools of the Future”, on Wednesday, Nov. 25, 10:00-11:00 am Central Time.

Are you curious about the brave new world of post-MARC cataloging? Are you wondering what this BIBFRAME, Linked Data mumbo-jumbo you keep hearing about is, anyway? Attend this session to see demonstrations of a variety of tools to see how they each do their best to answer the question of what cataloging without MARC will be like, and what they can do in terms of transforming our catalogs’ legacy MARC data. Tools covered will include: RDA in Many Metadata Formats (RIMMF), BIBFRAME Editors (from the Library of Congress and Zepheira), and OpenRefine.

Presenter: Emily Nimsakont, Head of Cataloging & Resource Management, Schmid Law Library, University of Nebraska College of Law.
