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.

1:30pm - 3:30pm
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?

Linked Data & Next Generation Catalogs Program Anaheim Convention Center
207D
Description :

Discussions on the concepts of linked data have been everywhere, but practical strategies for its implementation are hard to find. “Linked data,” a recommended best practice for exposing, sharing and connecting pieces of data information and knowledge on the Semantic Web, is expected to be fully embraced by the next generation catalogs already in the later stages of development. During this session, attendees will learn about the basic concepts of linked data and the impacts and benefits of adapting linked data in the area of future bibliographical control. To supplement our discussion, developers from a few next generation catalog systems will demonstrate their implementations of linked data.

Featuring:
Cory Harper (NYU); Phil Schreur (Stanford); Theodore Fons (OCLC); Yvette Diven (Serials Solutions) Jennifer Bowen (eXtensible Catalog)

The group will have a business meeting following our program.
