Creating Library Linked Data: What Catalogers and Coders Can Build [$] Preconference/Institute, Ticketed event Anaheim Convention Center
203B
Description :

High quality metadata: billions of bibliographic records, finding aids, descriptions of digital content - is a major asset of the library community. Agreement is growing on the benefits of transforming this wealth into linked data. Much experimentation is taking place. However, production-quality tools and infrastructure for linked data are in their infancy. This pre-conference will bring together catalogers and programmers to initiate the systematic, consensus-building approach needed to make Library Linked Data reality.

Functional Requirements for Bibliographic Records (FRBR) Interest Group Forum/Update Anaheim Convention Center
202A
Description :

Please join us for two very interesting presentations on FRBR and its impact on cataloging and catalogs.

Jennifer Bowen, Assistant Dean for Information Management Services at the University of Rochester River Campus Libraries and Chair of the eXtensible Catalog Organization

The eXtensible Catalog (XC) is free, open source software that provides a production system for converting MARC, Dublin Core, and potentially other metadata schemas for use in a FRBR-based discovery environment. XC’s software development and accompanying user research show how the FRBR model directly supports the needs of users and has taught us important lessons about implementing FRBR in a production environment. These lessons can also help guide us as we examine the feasibility of incorporating the FRBR model into the creation of linked data for libraries. .

Scott Piepenburg, Cataloging Coordinator/Metadata Librarian University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point

Scott will present on the basics behind FRBR and it impacts cataloging and an ILS. He will discuss how FRBR is related to Ranganathan’s theory of cataloging and how an ILS can use the information. The presentation will offer theoretical and concrete examples of FRBR principles in practice and how they apply to real-like objects. It concludes with a discussion and example of how an ILS may, or may not, be designed around FRBR principles.

CaMMS Forum Forum/Update Anaheim Convention Center
209B
Description :

"Reimagining the library catalog: changing user needs, changing functionality"

Do we need to change our perspective on what the catalog should be doing based on changes in the education and economic environment? What is needed, what could be changed, and what would be worth retaining, taking economic realities and educational goals into consideration? It has been argued that catalogs are not giving users what they need nor taking into account how they search. There is an objection to cataloging favoring the 1% using the library for research at the expense of the 99%. If cataloging practice is biased toward scholarly research, and we are able to change the bias, will this change the overall quality of education? If the bias is changed in favor of non-scholarly uses, how does the Library of Congress respond? What are the identifiable changes in scholarly discovery in the web environment that could change our perspectives on cataloging support of research?

Converting to RDA – from what? An Exploration of RDA Training that Does Not Assume Knowledge of AACR2
This presentation will review published and publicly available RDA training materials produced to date as well as survey results from participants of the U.S. RDA test, in order to set the framework for discussion of the utility of AACR2-based instruction tools within a realistic assessment of catalogers' needs. It will conclude with suggestions for appropriate, efficacious education in FRBR concepts, RDA rules, and the independent decision-making necessary for creation of RDA-compliant data.

Walter Walker, Head Cataloging Librarian, Loyola Marymount University
Changes in Cataloging Workflows at Loyola Marymount University
Many cataloging departments are trying to decrease backlogs, decrease the time it takes for new books to reach the circulating shelves, and decrease staff time copy-cataloging. How can we use shelf-ready cataloging without sacrificing record quality? Walter Walker, Head Cataloging Librarian at Loyola Marymount University, will explain the procedures recently adopted by LMU that help us to only check a small percentage of our new books for potential errors, sending the rest quickly to the shelves, and to maintain cataloging quality.

Cyns Nelson, Colorado Voice Preserve
Metadata for Oral History Collections
Cyns Nelson will briefly describe the Colorado Voice Preserve -- a library that consists entirely of oral histories: interviews, first-hand recollections, personal narratives -- focusing on research and planning for an oral-history metadata scheme. The hope is to engage attendees in a discussion of the need, use, and practicality of “Oral History Core.”
