this series

This series of six webinars builds on the introductory series From MARC to
BIBFRAME: Linked Data on the Ground
<http://www.ala.org/alcts/confevents/upcoming/webinar/MARCBIBFRAME>, which
was presented in fall 2016 and is now available free of charge. It
describes the continuing BIBFRAME initiatives taking place at the Library
of Congress as well as within the broader information community.

Description: Linked data offers the possibility of better expressing the
rich data and relationships among entities found in performed music
resources. BIBFRAME does not currently encode many of these relationships,
but can be extended to support semantically rich descriptions of the
complex web of relationships among works, events, performers, and mediums
of performance. This webinar introduces and describes the Performed Music
Ontology, an extension to BIBFRAME 2.0 for recorded music resources,
developed by a subgroup of the Linked Data for Production project. Come
learn about the ontology, its relationship to other standards such as RDA
and Doremus, tools to use, and about the ongoing evolution of the ontology.

Learning outcomes: Participants will learn about the Performed Music
Ontology, its relationship to BIBFRAME and other standards, tools to use,
experiences in using the ontology for cataloging, and current and future
plans for the ontology's framework, governance, and use.

Who should attend? Anyone interested in library linked data and music.


Nancy Lorimer has nearly 20 years of experience as a music cataloger and
now heads the Metadata Department at Stanford University, where she
oversees original cataloging in MARC and MODS, and participates in linked
data planning. Nancy is a member of the Linked Data for Production project,
and led the Performed Music Ontology subproject as part of that grant.
Nancy is active in the Music Library Association and the Program for
Cooperative Cataloging.
