This Confluence wiki site, maintained by DuraSpace prior to the recent merger with LYRASIS, will transition from the duraspace.org domain to the lyrasis.org domain on Saturday, Nov 16 beginning at approximately 7pm ET. A period of downtime of 2-3 hours is expected. After the transition, this wiki will be available at https://wiki.lyrasis.org/. All links to duraspace.org wiki pages will be redirected to the correct lyrasis.org URL. If you have questions prior to or following the transition please contact: wikihelp@lyrasis.org.

About the Moving Image Extension

Harvard will assess BIBFRAME's effectiveness as a data model for describing moving image materials for research needs, and identify domain-specific extensions to BIBFRAME, as well as vocabularies for description of these materials in a linked data environment.

Harvard project proposal

April 2017 project update

For questions or comments, please contact Christine Fernsebner Eslao, Metadata Management, Harvard Library: eslao [ at ] fas [ dot ] harvard [ dot ] edu or submit issues via https://github.com/HLITS/LD4L_Film_Ontology

Deliverables
  • Extension to BIBFRAME for moving image materials
  • BIBFRAME profile for moving images descriptions
  • Set of published BIBFRAME descriptions for a variety of moving image resources
  • Written evaluation of the project and set of recommendations for future research and development
  • Presentation of project findings to appropriate communities.
Current Activities

Analysis/Modeling

  • Discussion papers and recommendations 
  • Ontology extension files
  • Application profile and conversion mappings 
  • Survey of related ontologies and linked data efforts
  • Pattern documents for types of moving image resources, extending shared activities model, modeling physical details (durations, defects, sound, color, relationships between works and expressions, item history)
  • Ontology file with extension terms

See Harvard LD4L Labs wiki for documents
