BIBFRAME Task Force: MLA Report 2015

BIBFRAME Task Force Meeting Report
MLA Annual Meeting 2015, Denver, Colorado
Submitted by Kimmy Szeto, Chair

The BIBFRAME Task Force met informally at the MLA Annual Meeting in Denver on Thursday, February 26, at 6 PM. Present at the meeting were: Kirk-Evan Billet, Kevin Kishimoto, James Soe-Nyun, Kimmy Szeto, Anne Adams, Sophie Rondeau, Hermine
Vermeij, Anna Alfeld LoPrete, Catherine Busselen, Tracey Snyder, and Beth Iseminger.

Task force members made introductions and reported on their general experience working together, followed by working group leaders reporting on their progress. We then delved into the specifics of our analysis of MARC-to-BIBFRAME conversion, a central component of our charge which the majority of us is currently working on. We discussed the goals of the analysis, and decided to create uniform scope, methodology, procedures, and formatting of analysis results across the working groups. At the end of the meeting, we established a target date for the analysis work, and developed a list of questions for further reflection and discussion after the Annual Meeting.
