Overview »

Why the name change?

The original title of this presentation, Evolving Towards a Consortium MARCR Redis Datastore, reflected the current naming scheme that was articulated by Sally McCullum of the Bibliographic Framework Transition at the Library of Congress in a presentation she gave on that group's work. Later in 2012, this group formally released the same model with some minor changes (i.e. Work now became Creative Work) that dropped the term, MARCR, in favor of BIBFRAME.
