Event ALCTS webinar: NACO, authority control, and identity management: evolving strategies for a changing name authorities landscape

by Julene Jones on Wed, Nov 15, 2017 at 07:34 am

Date: Wednesday, December 6, 2017

Date: Wednesday, December 6, 2017

All webinars are one hour in length and begin at 11am Pacific, noon Mountain, 1pm Central, and 2pm Eastern time.

 

Description: This webinar will identify strategies for coping with the challenges of NACO workflows today and explore proposals to shift authority work in the future from a traditional MARC-based footing to a new identity management orientation. Michelle Durocher and John Riemer of the PCC Task Group on Identity Management will describe the group's efforts to chart a new path forward for authorities that draws on linked data principles, synchronizes NACO’s work with that of other identity registries such as ISNI, and makes it easier for non-NACO libraries to contribute to the program through a more inclusive "NACO Lite" approach. Joseph Nicholson will detail some of the techniques UNC Charlotte is using to cope with a reduced authorities management staff and a backlog of names needing authorized access points. His presentation will describe how the library incorporates the work of paraprofessionals and non-catalogers and uses tools such as OpenRefine and spreadsheets to more swiftly create NACO authority records.

 

Learning outcomes: This presentation will explore the difference between authority control and   identities management and their relationship to linked data, describe the PCC Task Group on Identity Management's proposals to align NACO's work with new developments in linked data and other identity registries and will stimulate thinking about different ways of handling and structuring authorities workflows.

Description: The RDA Toolkit Restructure and Redesign (3R) Project is a year-long effort to improve the RDA Toolkit in several different ways. Restructuring includes generalizing existing instructions where possible, implementing the four-fold path (unstructured description, structured description, identifiers, and actionable links) wherever applicable, and incorporating new elements from the IFLA Library Reference Model. Redesign includes greater flexibility in the display of instructions, improved user interaction with the Toolkit, and better tracking of revision history. Kathy Glennan, ALA Representative to the RDA Steering Committee, will bring attendees up-to-date about the planned changes to the Toolkit, which will be rolled out in April 2018.

 Learning outcomes:

Participants will understand the scope and goals of the 3R Project, including:

•    RDA Toolkit redesign

•    incorporation of the IFLA Library Reference Model entities

•    the proposed reorganization of the Toolkit instructions.

 Who should attend? Catalogers

 Presenter:

Kathy Glennan has over 30 years of experience cataloging music and is currently Head of Original and Special Collections Cataloging at the University of Maryland. She is active in the Music Library Association, the Program for Cooperative Cataloging, and ALCTS. She has served as both a liaison and a voting member of CC:DA.
