Live webinar on Wednesday, October 14, 1:00 - 2:30 p.m. Eastern (U.S). From the NISO site:

About the Webinar

Librarians, ILS vendors, and commercial cataloging service providers -- as well as a wide variety of related service providers -- all know that the proverbial, heavily acronym-spice "bibliographic control alphabet soup" involves the intelligent and well informed use of many ingredients. Chief in these are constantly evolving standards, combined with more than a sprinkling of creativity and insight. Three expert metadata chefs will analyze and discuss specific alphabetic ingredients already in use or soon to be implemented in the bib control kitchen.

Agenda

1:00 - 1:10 p.m.: Introduction & Welcome
Karen A. Wetzel, Standards Program Manager, NISO
Todd Carpenter, Managing Director, NISO

1:10 - 1:30 p.m.: AACR2, RDA, VIAF, and the Future: From There to Here to There
Barbara Tillett, Chief, Policy and Standards Division, Library of Congress
Biography

This presentation will focus on the differences between RDA and AACR2 and how the new code will better enable linked data for user access in the Web environment.

1:30 - 1:50 p.m.: RDA Elements and Vocabularies: a Step Forward from MARC
Diane Hillmann, Director of Metadata Initiatives, Information Institute of Syracuse
Biography

As the lynchpin of hugely successful efforts by libraries to provide information on their holdings to both local and remote users, MARC has had an illustrious presence. However, the format is beginning to fail libraries as many of our partners and potential partners in a greatly enriched information ecosystem do not "speak" MARC but handle their data in very different ways. RDA elements and vocabularies represent the distillation of library descriptive knowledge, optimized for use within an environment that speaks XML, RDF, and linked data, and which seek to express that knowledge in an FRBR-aware manner. This webinar will provide a brief overview of RDA elements and vocabularies.

1:50 - 2:10 p.m.: Data-driven Evidence for Core MARC Records
William Moen, Associate Professor, School of Library and Information Sciences, University of North Texas
Biography

This presentation will discuss results from an IMLS-sponsored research project that examined 56 million WorldCat bibliographic records and analyzed patterns of use by catalogers of available fields/subfields. The data provide evidence that can inform specifications for core records based on catalogers' practices.

2:10 - 2:30 p.m.: Question & Answer Session
