Co-presented with Steven W. Holloway

Poster presented at LET Showcase, James Madison University, Harrisonburg, VA


JMU Libraries & Educational Technologies participated in a 2017 pilot project with VIVA to present special collections records through a BIBFRAME discovery platform. This poster describes the project’s goals, the steps we took to prepare our records for conversion into linked data by Zepheira, and our observations on usability of the discovery layer and the effects on search engine optimization.
