As Linked Data is becoming one the prevalent topic in the Library, many institution are moving toward a transformation from traditional library data architecture (using MARC21) to newly developed Linked Data friendly formats (i.e. BIBFRAME). Library of Congress, as developer fo BIBFRAME, has been publishing a number of applications to transform more traditional formats inot BIBFRAME. Marc-to-BIBFRAME2 is a series of interlinked xsl stylesheets that take MARC/XML as input and outputs BIBFRAME. The University of Alberta Library Linked Data Enrichment tool is an easy-to-use Web based conversion application that leverage the LoC's marc2bibframe2 xslt package to transform MARC data (either in .mrc or .xml) to BIBFRAME. In addition this tool uses six different APIs to enrich all names (personal or corporate) and title with proper URLs. Since this conversion/enrichment tool has a user-friendly graphical user interface, using it does not require any background knowledge of XSLT, APIs or any other scripting language and all necessary actions can be done by only clicking a button. The application package is written fully in Python and is available as an open source package on GitHub. Therefore, it can be a very good start for converting and enriching data of those institution with smaller budget and a gateway for bringing their data and interest into the Linked Data ecosystem.
