This research paper examines Library of Congress’ Biblographic Framework Transition Initiative, or BIBFRAME, through the lens of current Library and Information Science literature on introducing Linked Data principles into cataloging. This research paper aims to find whether BIBFRAME fulfills expectations of Linked Data based cataloging as well as whether BIBFRAME shows promise in overcoming drawbacks to MARC-based cataloging as expressed in the literature.
