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.

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.”

Distance Learning Library Services at Urban and Metropolitan Universities Poster session Anaheim Convention Center
Exhibit Hall Poster Area Table 15
Description :

All academic libraries have as their core missions serving the students, faculty, and staff of their institutions. With the advent of distance learning, institutions have needed to further commit to providing an appropriate level of library services to remote, nontraditional learners. The library profession's commitment to serving distance learners has resulted in the promulgation of a series of standards since 1963, including the 2008 ACRL Standards for Distance Learning Library Services. With these Standards as a guide, libraries have established their local organizations, policies and services to meet their unique user populations and library resources. Urban and metropolitan universities differ from more traditional institutions as they often serve a largely nontraditional population of part-time students, taking courses on-campus, off-campus at remote locations, and increasingly online. With this online population, there is a blurring of "distance learners" and more traditional "on-campus learners." This presentation reports on a survey of libraries at the member institutions of the Coalition of Urban and Metropolitan Universities (CUMU) and identifies the services, activities and policies that urban and metropolitan libraries have developed to provide library resources to their online and distance learners. Survey results will be presented in a variety of graphs.

But What Are They Learning? Program Anaheim Convention Center
