Event CaMMS Forum, Annual 2016: Increasing Agility in Technical Services: Using the Agile Method for Project Management

by Bobby Bothmann on Fri, Jul 15, 2016 at 10:07 am

Increasing Agility in Technical Services: Using the Agile Method for Project Management
The 2016 Cataloging & Metadata Management Section (CaMMS) Forum
 

Increasing Agility in Technical Services: Using the Agile Method for Project Management
The 2016 Cataloging & Metadata Management Section (CaMMS) Forum
 
Some technical services units have begun using Agile development as a means to complete projects. Used in software development, the Agile method uses short, iterative sprints that provide frequent opportunities for feedback and assessment and encourages flexibility for when new variables arise. Come find out more about the Agile method and its use for common technical services tasks during the ALCTS CaMMS Forum at ALA Annual in Orlando, Fl. on Sunday, June 26 from 1:00-2:30 pm in the Orange County Convention Center, Room S330 A-B.
 
This session will be recorded; recordings will be available to registered attendees of the 2016 Annual Conference or for those who purchase access. Watch for announcements after the Conference is over for access instructions.

ALA decided not to record any of the forums.
 
Speakers:
·Galadriel Chilton, Ivy Plus Director of Collections Initiatives, Yale University
Using the Scrum Project Management Methodology for Resource Assessment Data Collection and Analysis  
Commonly used in software development, Scrum is a simple and practical project management methodology. This presentation will demonstrate how University of Connecticut’s Licensing & Acquisition’s unit used Scrum for data collection and analysis in preparation for a comprehensive review of e-resource collections. Using Scrum kept the project on task, strengthened the project's deliverables, increased team morale, and resulted in equitable task distribution.
 
·Maria Collins, Head, Acquisitions and Discovery, North Carolina State University Libraries
Agile Technical Services:  Iterative Strategies to Help Plan, Merge, and Evolve
Through local development efforts at North Carolina State University Libraries (NCSU), such as the development of NCSU's electronic resource management system, E-Matrix, managers in Acquisitions & Discovery were exposed to Agile development methods such as scrums.  This talk will describe the use of scrums and other iterative planning processes that assisted in the recent merger of technical services operations. These processes have also helped with project planning, efficient communication, and decision making.

·Daniel Lovins, Head of Knowledge Access, Design & Development, Knowledge Access & Resource Management Services, New York University, Division of Libraries
Agile Project Management as a key to interdepartmental collaboration within NYU’s Digital Collections Discovery Initiative
Lovins will describe how end-user needs were assessed for an NYU digital collections discovery initiative and how these assessments were translated into functional requirements and work packages using agile methodology. He will also touch on  lessons learned and recommended  next steps, both for NYU and for other institutions engaged in similar efforts.

Event CaMMS Forum: Authority Work of the Future: Taking Controlled Vocabulary and Authority Control Beyond the Library Catalog

Registering UCLA’s Researchers: Library Authority Data in a New Realm

John Riemer, Head, Cataloging & Metadata Center, University of California Los Angeles

Sharon Shafer, Head of Library Search and Usability, University of California Los Angeles

Registering UCLA’s Researchers: Library Authority Data in a New Realm

John Riemer, Head, Cataloging & Metadata Center, University of California Los Angeles

Sharon Shafer, Head of Library Search and Usability, University of California Los Angeles

UCLA is taking a systematic approach to obtaining an ORCID for each researcher on campus, to facilitate harvesting of citations of scholarly output and to achieve other anticipated benefits. A combined strategy involves asking researchers to register themselves and following up with batch assignments of ORCIDs. This project is part of a larger effort to create a new faculty information system on campus (the Opus project). The past several years of planning and organizing these projects has prompted a lot of thinking about how library authority data could be put to new uses, for new constituents totally outside the library. Those within the library can serve as authority data advocates as they identify new data combinations and sources to achieve new benefits.

Practical Applications of Linked Data Concepts at Rice University's Fondren Library

Amber Seely, Database & Metadata Management Coordinator, Rice University

Scott Carlson, Metadata Coordinator, Rice University

For years, librarians have heard about the impending arrival of Linked Data, but it is often information in the abstract. For some librarians, the nature of Linked Data provokes feelings of helplessness, as there seem to be few practical examples or strategies libraries can take on to prepare staff member and catalogs for future Linked Data environments. This presentation will detail the practical projects currently underway at Rice University’s Fondren Library to prepare for such a future linked data environment. Amber Seely, Database & Metadata Management Coordinator, will discuss an ongoing plan to embed Library of Congress name authority record URIs into new and existing catalog records using subfield 0, originally a space to deposit authority record control numbers. Scott Carlson, Metadata Coordinator, will discuss the transformation of a locally-created thesaurus of over 3,000 names and subject headings into a SKOS-RDF environment, which is then used to automatically verify digital collections metadata. The presentation will finish with the speakers discussing their newest project: a publicly-searchable headings database.
