This practical workshop will introduce participants to BIBFRAME tools, in particular BIBFRAME editor and BIBFRAME comparison service. These tools, created by Library of Congress for implementation and testing, will give participants the opportunity to compare MARC and BIBFRAME records, as well as creating BIBFRAME records from scratch.
