Abstract: Momentum has slowly been gathering over the past five years toward replacing the MARC record system. Development work is now underway within the Library of Congress (LC) to develop a new Bibliographic Framework, focusing on the ecosystem surrounding bibliographic information exchange, however it is by no means the only node in the web of exchange. In 2011, The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation generously funded the National Information Standards Organization (NISO) to undertake a community effort to describe those other elements and put forward a roadmap of additional work that might need to be undertaken before a transition to a new environment can be executed. This article describes the planned Bibliographic Roadmap project and the progress to date in gathering the needs of a variety of affected stakeholders—not just libraries—and prioritizing what next steps are necessary to create a new bibliographic ecosystem that will be fully integrated into the greater web of knowledge and information.
