Event FRBR Interest Group

by ALAConnect Helpdesk (staff) on Fri, Jun 20, 2014 at 07:37 pm

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.

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.

Loving and leaving FRBR

Loving and leaving FRBR

The ALCTS FRBR IG invites you to a managed discussion on the effect Functional Requirements of Bibliographic Records (FRBR) has had on cataloging thought and practices. We'll discuss the pros and cons of trying to fit existing bibliographic data into the FRBR model, and the use of FRBR as the organizing structure of Resource Description and Access (RDA). Debra Shapiro, an instructor at University of WI-Madison School of Library & Information Studies, and co-chair of the IG, will present a few short remarks to kick off table discussions. The discussion will be followed by a short business meeting.

Event Functional Requirements for Bibliographic Records (FRBR) Interest Group

by ALAConnect Helpdesk (staff) on Fri, Jun 15, 2012 at 01:07 am

Timezone:
US/Pacific (-7)

Please join us for two very interesting presentations on FRBR and its impact on cataloging and catalogs.

Jennifer Bowen, Assistant Dean for Information Management Services at the University of Rochester River Campus Libraries and Chair of the eXtensible Catalog Organization

Timezone:
US/Pacific (-7)

Please join us for two very interesting presentations on FRBR and its impact on cataloging and catalogs.

Jennifer Bowen, Assistant Dean for Information Management Services at the University of Rochester River Campus Libraries and Chair of the eXtensible Catalog Organization

The eXtensible Catalog (XC) is free, open source software that provides a production system for converting MARC, Dublin Core, and potentially other metadata schemas for use in a FRBR-based discovery environment. XC’s software development and accompanying user research show how the FRBR model directly supports the needs of users and has taught us important lessons about implementing FRBR in a production environment. These lessons can also help guide us as we examine the feasibility of incorporating the FRBR model into the creation of linked data for libraries. .

Scott Piepenburg, Cataloging Coordinator/Metadata Librarian University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point

Scott will present on the basics behind FRBR and it impacts cataloging and an ILS. He will discuss how FRBR is related to Ranganathan’s theory of cataloging and how an ILS can use the information. The presentation will offer theoretical and concrete examples of FRBR principles in practice and how they apply to real-like objects. It concludes with a discussion and example of how an ILS may, or may not, be designed around FRBR principles.

The ALCTS FRBR Interest Group cordially invites you to our ALA Midwinter meeting.

Date:   Friday, January 20, 2012

Time: 10:30 a.m.–12 p.m.

Place:  Dallas Convention Center D168

There is more to Functional Requirements than just FRBR. Come join us to learn more about FRAD and the other FR models from our very knowledgeable presenters, Qiang Jin and Shawne Miksa.

First Qiang Jin will present: Demystifying FRAD: Functional Requirements for Authority Data.

Qiang Jin is Senior Coordinating Cataloger and NACO Coordinator, Associate Professor of Library Administration at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign Library. Her presentation will provide a basic explanation of the Functional Requirements for Authority Data (FRAD): A Conceptual Model. It will illustrate the Conceptual Model for Authority Data with specific examples, and explain the FRAD entities, attributes of those entities and relationships between those entities with many specific examples so that attendees will be able to understand the FRAD model. It will include some brief RDA authority records exemplifying the major FRAD relationships.

Next we will hear from Dr. Shawne Miksa present on the FR models user tasks.

Dr. Miksa is an Associate Professor in the Department of Library and Information Sciences and Acting Associate Director of the Interdisciplinary Information Science PhD Program in the College of Information (COI), University of North Texas. In her presentation, Dr. Miksa will list and define the twelve user tasks from all three FR Models (FRBR, FRAD, FRSAD) and present her conception of corresponding tasks that an information organizer (cataloger, metadata specialist, etc.) performs to support the user tasks. Most of these tasks are not new to the practice, and Dr. Miksa will show how they can be recast to correspond with the functionality models.
