BiblioGraph is a new service changing the way academic, public and government library users explore and access library catalogs. With BiblioGraph, you can enhance the portability, visibility, and value of your library’s catalog so users can explore and access resources from anywhere on the web.

 EBSCO recently created a new video series that dives into the benefits of transforming library catalogs to BIBFRAME resources. You can now watch the full series in which we talk about what Linked Data, BIBFRAME and BiblioGraph are, and explain their importance and benefits to libraries.

  1. What is Linked Data?
    In this first video, you learn all about Linked Data, a method of publishing and linking different pieces of information on the Internet, and how it can benefit libraries. Senior Product Manager Gloria Gonzalez explains what Linked Data is and why it is important for enhancing discovery by enriching library data.

  2. What is BIBFRAME?
    In the second video in the series, Greg Padilla, Director of SaaS Innovation, talks about BIBFRAME – a Linked Data model and vocabulary for bibliographic data. In addition to introducing BIBFRAME, we also look at the characteristics that define the more traditional MARC format and make a side-by-side comparison between the two. Discover how the digital focus of BIBFRAME enables libraries to better manage, share, and connect their resources.

  6. Challenges & Solutions
    Many libraries currently describe their collections using formats such as MARC; formats that were created long before the Internet and do not have the flexibility that today's digital environment requires. Explore some of the challenges these traditional formats pose for libraries and learn how BIBFRAME and EBSCO's BiblioGraph are helping to overcome these challenges.
