Bibliographic Framework as a Web of Data: Linked Data Model and Supporting Services

The Library of Congress is pleased to report that we have reached two important milestones with respect to our Bibliographic Framework Initiative: the introduction of a draft data model for web-based bibliographic description and a first meeting of a small group of early experimenters currently exploring the feasibility of the proposed model.  The new model is simply called BIBFRAME, short for Bibliographic Framework.
The model document is a high-level view of the BIBFRAME model - a primer.  Although the model is a draft and expected to change, we want to share it now with the community not only so that you are informed of progress being made but also to engender conversation and constructive feedback.   The URL for the document  Bibliographic Framework as a Web of Data: Linked Data Model and Supporting Services is:  http://www.loc.gov/marc/transition/pdf/marcld-report-11-21-2012.pdf
