3. Discussion item: Relationship of RBMS PS to LC-PCC PS and BIBCO Standard Record (BSR) and CONSER Standard Record (CSR)
• The current drafts of the RBMS PS do not assume application of LC-PCC PS. When the same outcome as the LC-PCC PS is desired, the RBMS PS either provide similar instruction or reference the LC-PCC PS.
• The current BSR include rare materials cataloging provisions that serve as a cheat sheet for creating hybrid DCRM/RDA records. Francis and Michelle started discussion with PCC about whether to maintain rare material cataloging provisions within the BSR and CSR proper once the RBMS PS are complete. At this point, the PCC Standing Committee on Standards would like to keep options open and not make any final decisions until seeing the completed RBMS PS.

Event ALCTS e-Forum: User Experience and the Electronic Resources Librarian

by Jeremy Myntti on Thu, Mar 22, 2018 at 10:40 am

ALCTS e-Forum: User Experience and the Electronic Resources Librarian

ALCTS e-Forum: User Experience and the Electronic Resources Librarian

April 10-11, 2018

 

Moderated by Michael Rodriguez and Kate Hill

 

Please join us for an e-forum discussion. It’s free and open to everyone!

Registration information is at the end of the message.

 

Each day, discussion begins and ends at:

Pacific: 7 a.m. – 3 p.m.

Mountain: 8 a.m. – 4 p.m.

Central: 9 a.m. – 5 p.m.

Eastern: 10 a.m. – 6 p.m.

 

Designing good patron experiences with usability and user experience (UX) techniques is not a new concept in librarianship. There are user experience departments and staff. Conferences and journals are dedicated to the concept. However, a quick scan through sources like the Designing for Digital conference schedule and Weave: The Journal of Library User Experience suggests a lack of UX thinking when it comes to electronic resources: publisher platforms, discovery services, resource management software for staff, and other library tools, whether proprietary or open source. How can electronic resources librarians facilitate positive, successful user experiences with eresources?

 

In this e-Forum, we will discuss what exactly UX and usability design means, how UX can be brought into issues of collection development and eresources management, and what struggles and successes that discussion participants have experienced with UX in the context of eresources. Participants will finish this e-Forum with an understanding of the possibilities and complications of implementing this framework for electronic resources - and with some practical ways to start the UX conversation at their own libraries.

 

Moderators

Michael Rodriguez is Licensing & Acquisitions Librarian at the University of Connecticut, where he spearheads and streamlines contracts, procurement, and electronic resources management. Before UConn he served as E-Learning Librarian at Hodges University, where he developed a new library website and technology training programs. Michael chairs electronic resources management interest groups for LITA/ALCTS and for the ACRL New England Chapter. He writes for Library Journal, Charleston Advisor, College & Research Libraries News, Serials Review, Technical Services Quarterly, and Journal of Electronic Resources Librarianship. Michael was named a 2015 Library Journal Reviewer of the Year and a 2017 Charleston Conference Up-and-Comer.

 

Kate Hill is the Electronic Resources Librarian at University of North Carolina at Greensboro. She handles the entire electronic resource workflow, from licensing to perpetual access, for everything from eBooks to streaming media. Previously, she was a Libraries Fellow at North Carolina State University, working in the Acquisitions and Discovery Department and the User Experience Department, where she helped develop the open source projects of Kuali OLE and GOKb. Kate chairs the ALCTS Continuing Resources Standards Committee for ALA and also is a member of the Electronic Resources and Libraries Planning committee. She just published her first book, The ABCs of ERM from ABC-CLIO. In addition, she writes for Serials Review and has presented at numerous conferences, including Electronic Resources and Libraries, ACRL, ALA, NASIG and the Charleston Conference. Kate was named as a member of the North Carolina Library Association Leadership Institute and a 2017 Charleston Conference Up-and-Comer.

Next Steps for FAST 
Kate Harcourt (Director of Original and Special Materials Processing, Columbia University)
Following up on informal discussions with OCLC regarding the future of FAST, representatives from five large university libraries have conducted a survey of institutions to understand the level of interest in current features and possible enhancements of FAST. The survey is not a comparison of FAST use with Library of Congress subject headings or other pre-coordinated headings. Kate Harcourt will report on the survey’s preliminary findings.  
 
 
Jackie Shieh (Resource Description Coordinator, George Washington University)
Embedding OCLC Work Identifiers: an Example Workflow
OCLC defines a work as “a high-level description of a resource, containing information such as author, title, descriptions, subjects etc., common to all editions of the work.” Work identifiers are a key component in building a rich linked data environment of relationships between entities, objects, and topics. Jackie Shieh will provide an update on GWU’s efforts to add WorldCat Work IDs to their bibliographic records.

Event ALCTS webinar: Linked Data Description of Cartographic Resources

by Julene Jones on Fri, Mar 16, 2018 at 06:31 am

ALCTS webinar: Linked Data Description of Cartographic Resources

 

ALCTS webinar: Linked Data Description of Cartographic Resources

 

Date: Wednesday, May 2, 2018

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

 

This is the sixth session of a six-part series.  View the other sessions in this series.

 

This series of six webinars builds on the introductory series om MARC to BIBFRAME: Linked Data on the Ground, which was presented in fall 2016 and is now available free of charge. It describes the continuing BIBFRAME initiatives taking place at the Library of Congress as well as within the broader information community.  

 

Description: This webinar will provide an overview of the work and output of theLinked Data for Production-Cartographic Materials (LD4P-CM) project, including an introduction to the Geospatial and Cartographic Materials Ontology (GCRO), developed by the LD4P-CM project, which can be used along with other Linked Open Data (LOD) vocabularies to extend the current BIBFRAME 2.0 and bibliotek-o models for the description of geospatial and cartographic resources.

 

The Linked Data for Production (LD4P) project is a multi-institutional effort that is exploring the use of the Library of Congress’ Bibliographic Framework Initiative (BIBFRAME) as a means to semantically annotate library metadata using Linked Open Data (LOD) principles.

 

The LD4P Cartographic Materials subproject is focused both on evaluating the existing BIBFRAME 2.0 ontology and extending the model in order to better support the description of geospatial and cartographic resources in LOD environments.

Learning outcomes:

During this webinar, attendees will learn:

  • about the Linked Data for Libraries Cartographic Materials (LD4P-CM) project, including it's background, goals, and outcomes; and

  • how the Geospatial and Cartographic Resources Ontology (GCRO), developed by the LD4P-CM project, can be used to extend the BIBFRAME 2.0 and bibliotek-o models for the description of geospatial and cartographic resources.

 

Who should attend? Anyone interested learning how Linked Open Data (LOD) and semantic web ontologies (BIBFRAME and bibliotek-o) can be used and extended to describe library geospatial and cartographic resources including printed maps, atlases, digital geospatial datasets.

 

Presenter:

Marc McGee, Geospatial Metadata Librarian, Harvard Library Information and Technical Services, is coordinator for the Linked Data for Production Cartographic Materials project. Marc has over 13 years of experience cataloging geospatial resources including rare, paper cartographic materials in the Harvard Map Collection and digital geospatial datasets for the Harvard Geospatial Library.

Dear EBSS colleagues,

Please join us for our Spring Current Topics Discussion on Digital Scholarship and Libraries: Mission and Models.

Date: Wednesday, March 28 at 1:00 PM CST (11:00 AM Pacific Time and 2:00 PM EST)

Access at: https://acrl.webex.com/acrl/onstage/g.php?MTID=ea6c6443aa2a5538f09ac18bbb2dd61f1

Presenter:  Joan K. Lippincott, Ph.D.

Dear EBSS colleagues,

Please join us for our Spring Current Topics Discussion on Digital Scholarship and Libraries: Mission and Models.

Date: Wednesday, March 28 at 1:00 PM CST (11:00 AM Pacific Time and 2:00 PM EST)

Access at: https://acrl.webex.com/acrl/onstage/g.php?MTID=ea6c6443aa2a5538f09ac18bbb2dd61f1

Presenter:  Joan K. Lippincott, Ph.D.

Joan K. Lippincott is the Associate Executive Director of the Coalition for Networked Information (CNI), a joint program of the Association of Research Libraries (ARL) and EDUCAUSE, based in Washington, DC.  Joan is a widely published author and frequent conference speaker.  At CNI, Joan has provided leadership for programs in teaching and learning, learning spaces, digital scholarship, assessment, and collaboration among professional groups. She serves on the boards of the journal portal, The Reference Librarian, and the Networked Digital Library of Theses and Dissertations (NDLTD) and on the advisory board of the Journal of Learning Spaces. She served on the board of the New Media Consortium (NMC) and on its advisory boards for the Horizon Report for both higher education and libraries. Joan is the current editor of the EDUCAUSE Review E-Content column. She is past chair of the Association of College & Research Libraries’ (ACRL) New Publications Board, and served as a member of the ACRL Information Literacy Competency Standards Review Task Force that produced the Framework for Information Literacy for Higher Education.  She has served on the Advisory Boards ofthe Learning Spaces Collaboratory, the Learning Space Toolkit project, and the EDUCAUSE ELI Seeking Evidence of Impact project. Joan has served as a consultant to many academic libraries for their space renovation projects and has been on the planning committee for the Designing Libraries for the 21st Century conference since its inception. Prior to joining CNI, Joan was a librarian at Cornell, Georgetown, and George Washington universities, and SUNY Brockport.  Joan received her Ph.D. in higher education policy, planning, and administration from the University of Maryland, an M.L.S. from SUNY Geneseo, and an A.B. from Vassar College. She also completed graduate work at George Washington University and Cornell University.

Topic:

Providing expertise in the library for faculty, graduate students, and upper level undergraduates seeking assistance with digital scholarship projects is becoming increasingly common. Digital scholarship projects may emerge from faculty research interests, may be a component of classroom assignments, or may be the products of theses or capstone work. In any of these cases, the library’s involvement is a natural extension of its role in support of the university or college’s mission. Joan Lippincott will provide a brief overview of examples of the variety of products using digital scholarship tools and methodologies, followed by a description of digital scholarship centers in libraries, informed by her work at the Coalition for Networked Information (CNI). She will then focus on the distinctions between library-administered digital scholarship centers and those administered through faculty groups, departments, or colleges. As libraries embark on planning for digital scholarship, it is important to understand some of these distinctions, make informed choices, and set up appropriate structures and arrangements.
