Good news, even with my several columns on BIBFRAME and its implementation in LD4P‘s Sinopiaeditor for TS-SIS’s Technical Services Law Librarian publication. (TSLL). I am submitting my summer 2020 report for the granting Special Interest Sections.
For this report, I will generally describe the survey responses, lay out the plan for future writing on the topic, and describe the technical difference of metadata in the form of RDF and linked-open-data. The grant committee is expecting this report by the end of this week [2020-07-17] (aye…). But I am pretty far along (despite my super busy week).
The next steps will be to step-up my external publication efforts, produce a FINAL report to the grant committee in September, and then…well, I have more ideas.
I have acquired the right-plenty collection of responses from my national survey (with a few international contributors) about use and expectations of BIBFRAME and Sinopia. The survey data will generate some kind of writing associated with it separately from the larger project (even as it becomes subsumed by the larger ‘thing’) because I want a whole section of analysis on the people-side of the work.
I have also been working on getting ‘under the hood’ of the technical aspects to the BIBFRAME Editor as implemented by LD4P’s Sinopia. This part has been slower – not for lack of interest or confusion, but the shift to remote working (due to Covid 19) has messed up some routines. Many of these are being put back together…anyway..I am getting a solid education of the JSON Schema – which organizes much of the order in the background. This part has been super fun to see the ranges of applications that use JSON as well as its potential.
Note, I am not at all a programmer – but my systems-oriented thinking grows.
