Multiple projects already use BIBO at their core, or are able to export and publish bibliographic related information using BIBO. Here is a list of these projects, and some informationa about how BIBO has been integrated in them. Please contact us, on the community group, to let us know about new projects that use BIBO so that we can list them in this section.

2. Zotero BIBO Converter

4. BIBO Element Set for Omeka
Omeka (http://omeka.org) is an open-source web application for creating online exhibits and archives of cultural heritage artifacts. The BIBO Element Set makes the properties from BIBO available to use in the metadata for items in Omeka. It can be used either stand-alone, or, when the Linked Open Omeka plugin (also in-progress) is present, will expose the metadata as linked data. (in-progress.
5. conStruct and structWSF
The conStruct and structWSF softwares are using BIBO as one of their core ontology. Two examples websites are the BKN Central and BKN People websites that uses BIBO for some bibliographic related information (right now, mostly people related data).

11. Chronicling America (National Digital Newspaper Program)
The Chronicling America website at the Library of Congress provides a view on millions of page of digitized newspaper content from around the United States. The site uses BIBO to model newspaper pages and issues in the Linked Data views supported on the site. For example the page for the New York Tribune has this rdf/xml representation or this issue page, which has this corresponding rdf/xml.
12. British Library (Data & Metadata Services)
This project uses some of the BIBO predicates to describe bibliographic information they are publishing. Here is their website about their RDF output using BIBO.
Projects expected to use BIBO in the future
These are projects that are supposed to use BIBO in the future.
Zotero is supposed to use BIBO in their exporters to export any citation related data. It has been part of some development version, but nothing is publicly available for now.
2. Talis Prism
Prism's core data model will be changed in a next version, and this new core data model will include BIBO.
