In this final webinar in the series, attendees will learn more about the relationship of RDA to the MAchine-Readable Cataloging (MARC) standard and the problems associated with MARC’s continued use with RDA. Attendees will be introduced to the Bibliographic Framework Initiative, or BIBFRAME, the Library of Congress’s attempt at providing a replacement for MARC. Since BIBFRAME will be encoded using eXtensible Markup Language (XML), the basics of XML will be covered as well. BIBFRAME will likely replace the MARC standard in the future. Therefore, a greater understanding of BIBFRAME will better prepare libraries for this transition.
