- FORCE 2018;
- Library Juice Academy;
- ALCTS webinar: Performed Music & BIBFRAME: Enriching the Ontology
Date: Wednesday, March 28, 2018
All webinars are one hour in length and begin at 11am Pacific, noon Mountain, 1pm Central, and 2pm Eastern time.
This series of six webinars builds on the introductory series From MARC to BIBFRAME: Linked Data on the Ground, 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.
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.

The FORCE 2018 conference is a different kind of meeting, where stakeholders come to the table for an open discussion, on an even playing field, to talk about changing the ways scholarly and scientific information is communicated, shared and used. Our common goal is to maximize efficiency and accessibility.
Researchers, publishers, librarians, computer scientists, informaticians, funders, educators, citizens, patients, and others attend the FORCE meeting with a view to supporting the realisation of promising new ideas and identifying new potential collaborators.

The CILIP Copyright Conference, taking place on 25 April in London, has once again drawn together established experts to deliver a cutting-edge event, exploring the following issues:
- What is the relationship between big data, open content, Wikipedia and open data and how does access and sharing of data within the UK’s copyright, licensinnd publishing framework fit?
- How can academics fulfil their Open Access funding requirements whilst retaining the freedom to publish in the journals of their choice?
- What can librarians and information professionals do to navigate the complexities of managing a growing corpus of contracts for the supply of digital content?
- What are the latest developments in licensing and how will these impact upon the resources that can be accessed, copied and used?
The programme has been developed with Naomi Korn, Managing Director of NKCC, who will be chairing the conference and will be joined by an expert panel of speakers.
