MARC -> BIBFRAME/RDA transitions

The library world will be making a transition to a linked data format over the next number of years. The Library of Congress is leading the way with BIBFRAME and RDA is a thing too.

This is going to require a lot of new infrastructure at the core of library systems. Maybe we could take the time to (over-)engineer them with version control + provenance for the metadata. And serve it up with Memento, so that we can query description at different points in time?


Mostly brainstorming ideas for using this transition to maybe build not just the minimum possible information silo, but collective library infrastructure that enables new possible services.

I have a long way to go before I reach anything tangible or compelling.
