BIBFRAME Implementation & Testing

Organizations have been invited to register BIBFRAME implementations and participate in the BIBFRAME testbed.

In last week’s announcement the Library of Congress said the following:

These are two separate initiatives that will be important for implementation testing in 2014. However, it is expected that there will be significant overlap: Testbed organizations are encouraged to register their implementations, and those who register their implementations are encouraged to participate in the Testbed.

They’ve also developed a “core vocabulary” to support BIBFRAME implementations which contains “the RDF properties, classes, and relationships between and among them.” More information is available on the vocabulary site which includes three vocabulary views derived from the master RDF file: Model View; Category View; and List View.
