Talk by Karen Coyle, kcoylenet. Title: Mistakes Have Been Made
Abstract: The cultural heritage data communities are racing forward into the future with FRBR, BIBFRAME, RDA, and other bibliographic models. Unfortunately, these models are weighted down with the long history of bibliographic description, like stones in our pockets. As someone who worked on the cusp between card catalogs and machine-readable data, Coyle looks back on the moments in our recent history when we should have emptied our pockets and moved forward. As one who was there, there are ''mea culpas''. Coyle will also surprise you with the truth about FRBR and some radical thinking about what to do with that past that is holding us back from achieving the future we should be pursuing.
