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.

This program will explore how the publishing and library communities are facing the new digital marketplace, with a special focus on the standards that underlie the e-book supply chain.

Catalog Management Interest Group Discussion/Interest group Las Vegas Hotel
Pavilion 06
Description :

“Making a Digitized Collection Searchable in Summon” presented by Ruth Elder, Cataloging Librarian, Troy University Library.

Troy University has a digitized postcard collection which has been “cataloged” using CONTENTdm. The problem is this collection is not easily accessible for our patrons. This digitization project was made possible through Alabama Mosaic, a repository of Alabama's historical digital materials. Anyone can access the Alabama Mosaic site and search the postcards as well as many other Alabama digitized collections. Troy University Libraries chose the ProQuest Summon Service in order to allow patrons a “one-stop” searching experience. This presentation will explain the steps taken to make the collection searchable in ProQuest Summon.

“Are We Thinking While We're Linking?: 856 Clean-up and Categorization” presented by Kristen E. Martin, Electronic Resources Management Librarian, The University of Chicago Library.

This summer, the University of Chicago will migrate to the Kuali Open Library Environment (OLE), using VuFind as the front end of the catalog. With more granular display options within VuFind and new methods for managing URLs within OLE, a major 856 clean-up and review project needed to be undertaken. The current 856 URL clean-up program is designed to seek out and remove unwanted/misleading URLs, fix up over a decades' worth of bad and outdated coding, and make sure that 856s that go to full text are properly coded and consistently displayed. Within OLE, information from 856s that meet certain criteria will be moved to the e-holdings record, which will provide additional management and display options. New URLs being imported on print records are now subject to additional review and processing. This presentation will cover the clean-up process, ongoing work to manage new 856s in the catalog, and considerations for future access of electronic resources within OLE.

“Special Project in the Management of Batch Loading Vendor Records: Options, Strategy and Problem Solving” presented by Sherab Chen, E-Resources & Metadata Librarian, University Librries, Ohio State University.

As a trend occurring in many libraries today, we’re having a noticeable increase of batch loading vendor records in comparison with locally conducted cataloging for all e-resources the library acquires. The presenter will share his experience in meeting the challenges posed by large vendor record loads from a variety of sources including Gale, Project Muse and Alexander Street. He will talk about options in loading vendor records to the catalog, and strategy and solutions in fixing problematic vendor records for batch loading. He will also address the unique problems posed by update loads to existing packages. The presenter hopes to have opportunities to make suggestions to vendors on records improvements as well as receive feedback from colleagues coming to the meeting.

The presentations and related discussion will be followed by a short business meeting.

Catalog Form and Function Interest Group Discussion/Interest group Las Vegas Convention Center
N262
Description :

Using RDA to Improve User Experience

The ALCTS Catalog Form & Function Interest Group explores the evolving nature of the library catalog and its relationship to the fundamental mission and expanding services of libraries.
A major trend in libraries in the past several years has been the shift to the new RDA cataloging standard. RDA has the potential to better serve users, and some libraries are taking advantage of the transition to offer new and improved services.

We will hear from two libraries who implemented improved end-user services using RDA records. Richard Guajardo from the University of Houston will discuss a project to create improved format icons to replace the GMD (general material designation). Ted Schwitzner from the Consortium of Academic & Research Libraries in Illinois (CARLI) will discuss the implementation of post-search facets using RDA records.

Join us on Saturday June 28 from 3 - 4 pm at the Las Vegas Convention Center room N262 . Presentations will be followed by a Q&A and group discussion.

3:00pm - 4:00pm
Holdings Information Forum Forum/Update/Assembly Las Vegas Convention Center
S229
Description :

Please join the ALCTS CRS Holdings Information Committee at the ALA Annual Conference in Las Vegas on
Saturday, June 28th from 3:00-4:00 p.m. in the Las Vegas Convention Center, Room 203 B. We have three presentations demonstrating three different perspectives on the manipulation and use of holdings data:

MarcEdit and OCLC Integration

Terry Reese, the developer of the MarcEdit software program, will discuss MarcEdit and current integration opportunities, focusing on the new OCLC Metadata API service. He will demonstrate how MarcEdit has been able to utilize that service to provide deep integration to support direct and local bibliographic editing of WorldCat data directly within MarcEdit, as well as support batch holdings management through the interface. The presentation will discuss the current capabilities, some gaps, and how interested individuals could get started.

BIBFRAME, ISSN, and the Future of Serials

Regina Reynolds, Coordinator, U.S. ISSN Center, Library of Congress shares her thoughts about the ISSN and the future of serials description and access as we transition from MARC21 to BIBFRAME.

Josh Pyle, CTO and President of Dublin Six, will disuss holdings verification through the use of The AUDITOR software package. Installed on an institution’s network, The Auditor passively monitors all network traffic and makes libraries aware of every form of content that is being used and presents this information in COUNTER-style reports. The Auditor’s reports include content from every publisher on every platform, and also reports on content from open access or free information sources. Sophisticated click-stream analysis infers library holdings in real-time. Unexpected access denials, including broken links, are detected immediately.
