On October 4, 2017, ELTE University Library and Archives will hold a conference entitled “Paradigm Shift in Libraries?”. Ágnes Rácz, Director of Collection Development, NSZL and Miklós Lendvay, Director of E-services, NSZL will also deliver presentations at the professional meeting.

In her lecture entitled National Library Platform. The national library and the information technology renewal program for central services, Ágnes Rácz will present plans related to the National Library Platform (NLP), and key issues of NLP, such as common cataloging, further development of central databases and related services (MOKKA, MKDNY, NPA, ODR), the nationwide system of article processing, the issue of the Hungarian National Bibliography, integration of processing electronic and digitized documents, as well as working out new rules and standards in library cataloging with special regard to these documents.

In his presentation, Miklós Lendvay will report on the first European BIBFRAME Workshop. This workshop is a forum of dialogue between representatives of the European librarian community and the Library of Congress, and it also serves as a forum for sharing knowledge and experience gained by European libraries. Over the past years, a number of linked data projects have taken place in libraries. The librarian community is in need of a modern international standard for the exchange of bibliographic data. According to the intentions of the Library of Congress, BIBFRAME will replace MARC, so preparations for the introduction of BIBFRAME in Europe are gaining momentum.  Some countries took control, while the others keep on waiting. Anyway, what we need is a greater visibility of BIBFRAME, and we must start making it more international.
