Abstract: With the Bibliographic Framework Initiative—a community effort led by the Library of Congress (LC) and first announced in 2011—the library world has begun its transition from the MARC 21 communication formats. The data model will be grounded in Resource Description Framework (RDF) and, in conjunction with an RDF model, the new framework would embrace the Linked Data practices and methods with respect to sharing and publishing library data.
