> "Beyond MARC" is a two day conference that examines the evolution of how ILSs are impacted by linked data, RDA and the BIBFRAME project. Cataloguing concepts are moving beyond viewing a resource as a physical entity to viewing them as links between the object, titles, authors, subjects. Methods and tools will require a revision of the MARC format and an evolution of the latter toward a new logic to allow cultural institutions such as libraries, archives and museums to match and link their data with data available on the web, thus contributing to the semantic web. Open source ILSs like Koha and tools like MarcEdit can make a significant contribution to this evolution. The conference includes one day of discussion and analysis and one day of practical training in MarcEdit and BIBFRAME. The conference further marks the upcoming release of the new Koha with Elasticsearch as its new search engine. This conference is promoted by Koha Gruppo Italiano for the international Koha community.
