LOD WG Update, December 2020

The IGeLU/ELUNA Linked Open Data Working Group (LODWG) held its first virtual Town Hall on Dec. 3, 2020. The topic was “From MARC to BIBFRAME and back again.” The meeting was co-facilitated by Laura Akerman (former LODWG coordinator) and Xiaoli Li (current LODWG coordinator). Over 80 people attended this online event which generated lots of very good discussions.

The meeting recording has been posted on YouTube at: https://youtu.be/ZwQ6o42yNyo. The introductory slides are accessible here: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1y16kcSJkimTGla9LvpGFTVXR5xQ0L0lO/view?usp=sharing

The LODWG will have three more Town Halls (on a quarterly basis). If you have suggestions for topics for future meetings, please email Xiaoli Li (xlli@ucdavis.edu) or Laura Akerman (liblna@emory.edu). The WG would like to thank everyone who attended the first meeting. The time and topic for the 2nd Town Hall will be announced in early 2021.
