Opening Doors: Impact of Linked data Project Datos.BNE.ES on Authority Control at the National Library of Spain

 

On late November 2014, National Library of Spain released datos.bne.es, the new version of a Linked open data-based service, previously launched in 2011. This project has been designed and developed in close partnership with the Ontology Engineering Group from the Polytechnic University of Madrid, a pioneering research group in semantic technologies.

This service, still in a beta version, has had a twofold goal: continue with the publication of National Library of Spain bibliographic and authority data in RDF under an open license, and to provide the user with an innovative view of its assets, built upon and benefiting from this huge amount of semantic data. These data have been modelled after the FRBR framework, re-arranging the existing data into the model entities, and tracking the main relationships among them. Resources have been described using an ad-hoc BNE ontology, a set of classes and properties linked to many well-known vocabularies.  Entities have been linked to others equivalent from many datasets, and local data have been enriched with third-party information. These basic features provide a solid ground and structure for future developments for users, libraries and other communities to be built upon, and casts interesting challenges for the library to provide new services that have an impact on the daily cataloging and authority control workflows.

The British Library's Implementation of Library of Congress Medium of Performance Thesaurus terms (LCMPT)

 

Music cataloguers at the British Library began using LCMPT in original cataloguing in June 2016. This presentation will outline the reasons for adopting the medium of performance vocabulary and our experience of implementing it. There have been both positive and negative impacts on catalogue data and cataloguing workflows. In particular, the configuration of LCMPT on our library system (Aleph) presented some challenges for authority control, due to the contextual way in which the MARC 382 field works, and a partly manual system of updates has had to be devised. The benefits, however, override this limitation: we retain and extend our ability to use a controlled vocabulary to record voice and instrument terms, comply further with the element-based data recording approach of RDA, and anticipate the exchange of data in future systems. In the course of evaluating FAST as a possible replacement for LCSH, we noted that it contains many terms in common with LCMPT. The two vocabularies serve different purposes and in some situations both may be applicable.

Authority Control in German speaking countries: the Integrated Authority File GND

 

The Integrated Authority File (= Gemeinsame Normdatei, GND) is mainly and originally used by libraries and increasingly deployed in other cultural heritage organizations in German speaking countries. It is operated cooperatively by the whole community and maintained by the German National Library.

 

This presentation will describe the integration of the formerly separate authority files, where different data formats, rules and positions of the descriptive and subject cataloguing points of view were joined.

The GND data model and data format have a special focus on the linking structure, by describing entities and by designating attributes and relationships to other entities. It is differentiated between the cataloguing and storage format and driven by the data model, some changes and additions to the MARC Authority format were accepted by the MARC community recently, which are to be implemented in autumn 2017. With a high linking density, a URI resolving service and an ontology on its own the GND is visible as a building block of the Linked Data environment. Exemplary impressions of GND usage are shown, and some next steps and plans provide an outlook into the future of the GND.

We are pleased to announce four presentations at Midwinter 2017 session of the LITA/ALCTS Authority Control Interest Group.

Date and time: Sunday, January 22nd, from 1:00 to 3:00 pm.

Place: Atlanta, Georgia, Georgia World Congress Center (GWCC), Room A312

  1. “‘Authority Control’ see (also) ‘Identity Management’”

 

Presenters:  members of the PCC Task Group on Identity Management in NACO:

John J. Riemer, Head, UCLA Library Cataloging & Metadata Center and Violeta Ilik, Head, Digital Systems & Collection Services, Galter Health Sciences Library, Northwestern University

With increasing frequency, terminology like “Identity Management” is being used where one might previously have seen “Authority Control.”  What is driving this trend and what exactly is the difference between those concepts?   Come hear about some of the emerging use cases illustrating the difference, where library authority data is being utilized in new ways.  Let’s discuss some of the implications these developments have for where authority work is done and who does it.

  1. “Authority Control and the University of Nebraska--Lincoln’s Institutional Repository”

Presenter: Margaret (Meg) Mering, Authority Control Librarian, University of Nebraska-Lincoln Libraries

This presentation will discuss the workflow for authority control in the Institutional Repository at the University of Nebraska--Lincoln. It will discuss the limitations of implementing authority control in an IR, and why some people question whether it is really necessary in an IR.  The future addition of ORCID identifiers to the repository and the potential for partnering with other University of Nebraska campuses will also be covered.  

  1.  Updates from OCLC

Presenter: Nathan Putnam, Director of Metadata Quality, OCLC

Nathan Putnam will update attendees on OCLC authority projects, controlled vocabulary work and more.   

  1. Updates from the Library of Congress

Presenter: Janis L. Young, Policy and Standards Division, Library of Congress

Session moderator:  Paul Robert Burley, Metadata & Discovery Services Librarian, Northwestern University

We look forward to seeing you at our meeting!
