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.

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.

Royal Ballroom E
Description :

The Cataloging Norms Interest Group program will focus on some of the challenges in today’s changing cataloging environments.

Allison Jai O'Dell, Assistant Archivist and Librarian, The Barnes Foundation
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.”

Libraries on Demand: Building a User-Driven Collection with Ex Libris Alma Vendor demonstration/activity Anaheim Convention Center
207C
Description :

As budgets tighten, ensuring maximum usage of the collection is more important now than ever. Libraries are increasingly supplementing their collection development policies with “just-in-time” models of collection development—purchasing and delivering resources at the point of need. Ex Libris’ next-generation library management service, Alma, is designed to allow libraries to shift toward user-driven models of purchasing for both print and electronic resources, in order to increase usage and decrease the overall cost of their collections. Come see how Alma will help libraries build out their collections just in time, rather than just in case.

Catalog Management Interest Group Discussion/Interest group Hyatt Regency Orange County
Royal Ballroom E
Description :

The meeting will focus on vendor provided MARC records for titles acquired via Patron Driven Acquisitions (PDA) or Data/ Demand Driven Acquisitions (DDA) programs and the impact of these records on the catalog.

Mary Gilbertson, University of Arkansas Libraries
The University of Arkansas uses the criteria from its YBP book approval plan for their DDA records. The ebook vendor is ebrary, but the approval plan criteria filter the records that are loaded. A load table adds various fields to the cataloging records.

Roman Panchyshyn, Kent State University Libraries
At the Table: Developing a Cataloging Workflow for a Successful Demand-Driven Acquisitions Project
When KSUL began negotiations with YBP to implement a DDA pilot, cataloging staff provided input on MARC record preparation and specifications, record delivery, and workflow processes. This presentation covers the role cataloging staff played in developing and implementing a DDA pilot project; how the bibliographic records are loaded, overlaid, and maintained; and the issues that were discovered while working with these record sets.

Elyssa Sanner, Northern Michigan University
Patron-Driven E-book Acquisitions at NMU: Worth the Effort?
NMU recently implemented PDA through YBP/EBL. Enhanced discovery records were purchased. Through trial-and-error, NMU found solutions that simultaneously maintain the integrity of the catalog and manage resources by editing the elements that pose the greatest barriers to patron discovery.

Sadie Williams, Ebook Library
Tom Larsen, Portland State University Library
Building and Evaluating a Collaborative Consortial Demand-Driven Cataloging Workflow
In January 2011, the 36-member Orbis Cascade Alliance, in partnership with EBL and YBP, announced a new collaboration in consortial e-book acquisitions. This presentation discusses the cataloging workflow to support that program; the decisions and collaborative effort across member institutions and vendors to develop the workflow; the successes, issues, and lessons learned along the way; the role of vendors in the creation of the cataloging records; and the importance of maintaining DDA cataloging records as they affect DDA expenditure and usage.

Wen-ying Lu, University of Colorado Boulder
Mary Beth Chambers, University of Colorado Colorado Springs
PDA Consortium Style: The CU MyiLibrary Cataloging Experience
Boulder's MyiLibrary PDA program has expanded to include all campuses within the UC System, thus launching a collaborative pilot project for shared purchasing and cataloging of e-books. This presentation covers the workflow used to share MARC records; discusses factors affecting editing and customization of the records; and includes strategies for detecting and resolving errors handling PDA discovery records for titles duplicated in other e-book packages.

Electronic Resources Management Interest Group Discussion/Interest group Anaheim Convention Center
201A
Description :

This session of the ERM Interest Group focuses on the role that library initiated ERMS continue to play in the ERM marketplace. Major developments are taking place with the focus on ILS and ERM integration in systems such as ExLibris’ ALMA, Innovative’s Sierra and the Kuali OLE project but many libraries still choose to develop their own ERMS or turn to solutions created and offered by other libraries such as CUFTS, CORAL, ERMes and Gold Rush. This session includes presentations from representatives of these library initiated ERMS and will highlight the value and impact that these systems continue to have on the ERMS marketplace both now and in the future.

Faceted Subject Access Interest Group Discussion/Interest group Hyatt Regency Orange County
Imperial
Description :

Subject Facets are key aspects of next generation catalogs and discovery tools. Where do these limiting terms come from and how do they work? How many subjects facets can be displayed? How many records from a large retrieval set are subject to faceting? The answers may change depending on the system and on search options used. Please join in an open discussion featuring representatives of Encore, Summon and WorldCat as we take a closer look at subject facets in these systems.

Please join us at “Fascinating Facets” as we consider these and related questions. Bring along your questions and observations and be prepared to share them with the group.

Holdings Information Forum: Quality Standards in Batch Records and Adventures in Cooperative Cataloging: Many Hands Make Light Work Forum/Update Hyatt Regency Orange County
Grand Ballroom B
Description :

In the information rich, content heavy world of today’s cataloging, you might end up with too much of a good thing—or in the case of batch records, what you end up with might not be good enough. Come learn about the valuable experience that large scale digitization projects such as HathiTrust have in collecting record information for content ingest and in creating tools to help institutions get records. Also, hear an update on the HathiTrust Print Holdings Database Project.

Cooperative cataloging allows for shared work to benefit from a variety of experienced participants. The CONSER Open Access Journal Project cooperatively targets the Directory of Open Access Journals (DOAJ) to assure that CONSER records are available for all journals in the collection. It is designed to provide on-going coverage of new titles added to DOAJ. CONSER records are used by electronic resource management and access systems to track e-journal collections such as DOAJ and other e-journal collections. Come hear more about the project and plans for future projects. Finally, some libraries have decided that they no longer want to load individual MARC records at all. Learn what other options might be possible in the form of publisher reported holdings via OCLC Worldcat. Working together, we can accomplish more.

Speakers:

Jonathan E. Rothman, Head, Library Systems Office, University of Michigan University Library
Jon Rothman is the Head of the Library Systems Office at the University of Michigan, where he has been managing the collection and use of bibliographic and holdings–related metadata for the HathiTrust. He has been working with batch-processing of library metadata for over 30 years.

Les Hawkins, CONSER Coordinator, Library of Congress
Les Hawkins has worked at the Library of Congress in several positions since 1982 and has been coordinator of the CONSER program since 2003. CONSER is the Cooperative Serials Program of the PCC, an authoritative source for bibliographic records, documentation, and training materials for serials cataloging. As CONSER Coordinator Les provides support to CONSER members in developing cooperative cataloging projects, training material and documentation.
