Interested in linked data, BIBFRAME or MARC news from the recent ALA Midwinter 2016 in Boston? I’ve written up minutes to several of the meetings I was able to attend during the conference, and these should be of particular interest to folks with an interest in encoding standards.
- Full BIBFRAME implementation remains on the horizon, though closer than before.
- MARC is definitely not dead, though it definitely is eyeing a linked data future.
- Small linked data projects abound, and they seem closer to knitting together to form useful interfaces and tools.
- Some linked data practitioners are getting more interested in the social space around their work, and are looking closer at issues of diversity, inclusiveness and privacy.
