BIBFRAME Transformation Data

These data are the result of a multi-step process aimed at enriching BIBFRAME RDF with linked data. The process takes in an initial MARC XML file, transforms it to BIBFRAME RDF/XML, and then four separate python files corresponding to the BIBFRAME 1.0 model (Work, Instance, Annotation, and Authority) are run over the BIBFRAME RDF/XML output. The input and outputs of each step are included in this data set. Input file types include the CSV; MARC XML; and Master RDF/XML Files. The CSV contain bibliographic identifiers to e-books. From CSVs a set of MARC XML are generated. The MARC XML are utilized to produce the Master RDF file set. The major outputs of the enrichment code produce BIBFRAME linked data as Annotation RDF, Instance RDF, Work RDF, and Authority RDF.
