In 2018 the University of Alberta Library (UAL) joined the LD4P2 Cohort as a part of a wider strategy for linked data and BIBFRAME implementation. During the same year the Canadian BIBFRAME Readiness Task Force (CBRTF) was formed to produce documentation that outlines the impact of migrating from MARC to BIBFRAME on libraries in Canada; to assess the understanding of and readiness for BIBFRAME transition in libraries in Canada; and to make recommendations for how the Canadian Federation of Library Associations / Fédération canadienne des associations de bibliothèques (CFLA-FCAB), Fédération des milieux documentaires (FMD), and Library and Archives Canada can support Canadian libraries’ transition to BIBFRAME. In this session, UAL’s experience and successes working towards BIBFRAME implementation will be juxtaposed to the findings of the CBRTF survey that few libraries in Canada are fully prepared to transition from MARC to BIBFRAME in the near future. Through this juxtaposition we will examine the current state of BIBFRAME readiness in Canada and outline CBRTF recommendations for a shared path forward.
