BIBFRAME Workshop in Europe 2022

The aim of the BIBFRAME Workshop in Europe is to be a forum for sharing knowledge about the practice of, production with, and planning of BIBFRAME implementation.
We bring together people working in the transition from MARC to Linked Data using the BIBFRAME model and related tools.
The workshop areas are strongly focused on the practical implementation of BIBFRAME, not a theoretical Linked Data / Semantic Web event.

Conference Participation

There is no attendance fee for the BIBFRAME Workshop.
Please note, however, that all participants must register for the event, whether they intend to join us in person or virtually.

Call for Proposals

The call for proposals is now open.

The BIBFRAME Workshop in Europe is excited to announce its 2022 workshop in September 2022.

The conference is open to all those interested in the use of BIBFRAME, or other ontologies, in the context of libraries and information management. Although the physical conference is traditionally held in Europe, our virtual event will truly be open to all and we encourage community members from around the globe to attend. Proposals for presentations may be for work that is practical or experimental.
Those interested in submitting a proposal may propose a presentation (15 minutes), a lightning talk (5 minutes), or a panel (up to 30 minutes). Opportunity will be given during the conference itself to suggest extemporaneous lightning talks as well. Proposals should include a title and a short abstract (up to 1,500 characters).

The Workshop encourages proposals on the following or related topics of importance to the community:

 • planned or real linked data implementations in a library context
 • tools for the creation and/or editing of BIBFRAME
 • data of record in a shared environment
 • conversion to and from BIBFRAME
 • BIBFRAME training

 • integration of BIBFRAME into library applications
 • integration of BIBFRAME and Wikidata
 • exchange of BIBFRAME between systems
 • BIBFRAME and the Web
 • entity management

 • BIBFRAME and cataloging guidelines
 • BIBFRAME as an open standard
 • BIBFRAME and interlibrary loan
 • BIBFRAME and holdings data
 • BIBFRAME and provenance data
 • BIBFRAME and licensed data

 • BIBFRAME and discovery
 • BIBFRAME and ethics
 • BIBFRAME and music
 • BIBFRAME and art
 • BIBFRAME and rare materials
 • BIBFRAME and ...

Proposals should be submitted to the Workshop via the online submission form, which can be found here, before June 30, 2022.

Linked data in libraries is rapidly moving from the experimental to the practical, mostly due to community efforts. We are excited for this opportunity for the community to share their latest efforts and help us move forward together.
