FRBR Interest Group Discussion/Interest group Las Vegas Convention Center
N263
Description :

The FRBR Interest Group program will consist of two presentations about how FRBR can be used in finding film/video items and the use of FRBR in preservation management.

First, Kelley McGrath’s presentation will describe common problems that users encounter when searching for film and video in libraries. She will discuss how the FRBR model provides a framework to make finding moving images materials easier and more effective for users while also providing back-end efficiencies in data creation and management. She will look at some ways in which the orthodox FRBR model and RDA's interpretation of it don't work well for film and video. Finally, she will show what a FRBR-inspired end-user discovery interface for moving images might look like and will elucidate steps to move towards this vision.

Second, Jacob Nadal’s presentation will propose a way of using FRBR to coordinate preservation goals among libraries and to clarify the goals and expected outcomes of preservation and conservation efforts. Special attention will be paid to two areas where frameworks for this kind of coordination are needed: managing regional print archives, and the role of digitization in preservation management.

Kelley McGrath is Metadata Management Librarian at the University of Oregon. She is an experienced media cataloger and an active member of Online Audiovisual Catalogers (OLAC). She served as chair of OLAC's Cataloging Policy Committee for several years and is currently OLAC's liaison to CC:DA. She is interested in the potential of the FRBR model, structured data and faceted interfaces for improving access to moving images.

Jacob Nadal is the Executive Director of ReCAP, The Research Collections and Preservation Consortium, which provides long term collections care and access services for the libraries and archives of Columbia, Princeton, and the New York Public Library. Jake has led preservation efforts at Indiana University, NYPL, and UCLA, and prior to joining ReCAP, served as Director of Library and Archives for the Brooklyn Historical Society. Within ALA, he has served as Chair of PARS and co-chaired the working group that wrote ALA’s Definitions of Digital Preservation.

Competencies and Education for a Career in Cataloging Interest Group Discussion/Interest group Las Vegas Convention Center
N263
Description :

Competencies for the 21st Century Cataloger

“Cataloger 3.0: Competencies and Education for the BIBFRAME Catalog”, presented by Allison Jai O’Dell, Special Collections Cataloging & Metadata Librarian, University of Miami Libraries.

A new data model for resource description creates the chance to re-imagine cataloging expertise and explore new roles for the catalog librarian. The Bibliographic Framework Initiative (BIBFRAME) provides a linked data model and vocabulary for representing library resources based on the Resource Description Framework (RDF). BIBFRAME will launch the library catalog onto the Semantic Web, creating new opportunities in discovery experience design.

This presentation will cover competencies and education for a career in resource description and access by looking at possibilities presented by the Bibliographic Framework Initiative. As the library catalog becomes increasingly annotated with external data sources, metadata functions in a Web 3.0 environment will be collaborative and outward-facing. Practical considerations for the catalog librarian include building crosswalks between metadata schemas, implementation of the entity-relationship model, and development of the object-oriented next generation catalog. We will discuss participation in the Linked Open Data movement and facilitation of a user desire to mash and re-purpose library catalog data.

“Please send Catalogers: Metadata Staffing in the 21st Century”, presented by Jennifer A. Liss, Head, Monographic Cataloging Image Unit, Indiana University, Bloomington Libraries.

You’ve heard the phrase before: “traditional cataloging.” The phrase is most often used to identify the MARC-based work that catalogers perform, as opposed to the metadata work associated with digital objects. In truth, both kinds of work require the same intellectual engagement. Whether the task is cataloging printed books, providing access to digitized photographs, encoding literary texts, or describing earth sciences datasets, the underlying principles governing access remain the same.
At Indiana University, the tangible outcomes of embarking on non-MARC metadata are that catalogers learned new tools and standards while providing access to hidden and unique collections. This presentation will focus on the intangible outcomes of the enterprise, addressing ways in which those who perform traditional cataloging are uniquely positioned to make valuable contributions to the linked library data future. It will also offer preliminary musings on competencies for professionals and paraprofessionals performing metadata work.

A brief business meeting will follow the presentations. Draft agenda below:
1. Leadership: incoming chair and vice-chair(s). Contact Bruce if interested in future leadership opportunity.
2. Discussion of topics of interest for future programs

ALA Annual 2014

Presenter: Angela Kinney
Library of Congress Report

Presenter: April Grey
Differentiating Ebook Packages through Unique Identifiers
As more of our library content became available through various vendor packages; identifying unique batch record loads became necessary. We created a workflow to include a unique identifier (599 field) for each ebook package using MARC Edit and Innovative’s Sierra. Each unique identifier included the vendor, the file name, and the load date.
We now can differentiate between subscription and purchase records in the catalog and distinguish bibliographic records with the same title from different vendors. It also provides a new means to track holdings and statistics. Collection development and acquisitions departments also benefit from the new feature in the MARC record. Going forward, we will continue to implement this workflow for added visibility, clarity, and quality control in our catalog.

Abstract
Kent State University Libraries (KSUL) is currently planning a RDA enrichment project with their authority control vendor (Backstage Library Works). The project entails machine manipulation of all MARC legacy data (bibliographic records) in the library catalog by adding RDA elements to all non-RDA records to create “hybrid” RDA records. This presentation will examine the planning process, focusing on the issues that the library, together with the vendor, need to address before an RDA enrichment project can be successfully undertaken. Since preparation and execution of this type of project requires a certain level of commitment and investment in time and resources by the library, the presentation will discuss the benefits of RDA enrichment projects for libraries and their users. Implications for consortia partners and for system vendors will also be covered. KSUL feels there is substantial value to be gained from a RDA enrichment project and wishes to share its views.

Presenter: Nathan Putnam
Abstract
Copy catalogers at the University of Maryland, College Park have are using their copy cataloging skills in areas outside of MARC and AACR2/RDA. One area is copy cataloging of digitized postcards, where catalogers review the metadata created during the digitization process, correct errors as needed, and add subject terms outside of LCSH. Instead of working in the our Aleph ILS, catalogers are reviewing and updating in our Digital Repository (Fedora), using a locally created University of Maryland Description Metadata profile. The other area in which the copy catalogers are working is the WorldCat Knowledge base. Here, catalogers receive email alerts for newly purchased ebooks, and then check for accuracy and working links in the WCKB, thus leveraging WorldCat bibliographic data. My presentation for the Copy Cataloger’s Interest Group would be to discuss the challenges and opportunities presented to copy catalogers by working in these systems outside of MARC and AACR2/RDA.

8:30am - 10:00am

Facilitating Teaching and Learning through the integration of Library Services and Course Management Exhibitor session Las Vegas Convention Center
S232
Description :

The changing ecosystem for scholarly communication drives libraries to look for new ways in which they can leverage their knowledge and expertise to better serve their communities and also to demonstrate value to their institutions. A tighter integration of library services with teaching and learning environments enables the library to be more visible to faculty and students, to optimize the use of the content it acquires and licenses, and to make informed decisions when developing its physical, digitized, and electronic collections.

The session will discuss the integration between course management systems, discovery systems, and library management systems. It will focus on cross-system workflows and optimal user experience for all stakeholders—faculty, students, and library staff. The work done by a Northwestern University Library team to integrate their Blackboard course management system and the Primo discovery system will be described.
