The Linkable Neil Armstrong: Using BIBFRAME to Increase Visibility of Digital Collections

Carolyn Hansen, Sean Crowe

Abstract


This report describes the initial phase of an experimental project to increase Web visibility of the Neil Armstrong Commemorative Archive, a digital collection of archival materials concerning astronaut Neil Armstrong’s tenure at the University of Cincinnati. The project description includes explanation of the mapping process from Qualified Dublin Core to BIBFRAME as well as data reconciliation and linking to external authorities such as id.loc.gov, VIAF, and Wikipedia. Next steps in the project, such as integrating related MARC datasets from local library catalogs, are also discussed.
