Holdings Information Forum: Knowledge Base Strategies,  Jan. 9, 3-4 pm, BCEC 156C

 Ensuring the accuracy of holdings information in a library’s knowledge base is a constant struggle. The Holdings Information Committee of the ALCTS Continuing Resources Section hopes to provide some solutions to this vexing problem at its Holdings Information Forum at ALA Midwinter.

The Forum will have two presentations on different approaches to the problem. Steve Shadle, Serials Access Librarian at the University of Washington, and Regina Reynolds, Director, U.S. ISSN Center at the Library of Congress, will speak on PIE-J (Presentation & Identification of E-Journals), a NISO Recommended Practice that provides guidance to e-journal publishers and providers. The presentation will provide an overview of PIE-J guidelines that relate to holdings and coverage data, specifically the area on how to deal with title changes and title histories so as to avoid bad coverage data that negatively affects discovery and access. It will also include examples and provide methods that libraries can use to report holdings problems to publishers and providers.

 Shannon Regan, Acquisitions Coordinator of E-resources and Serials at New York Public Library, will present on handling the dilemma of the quick fix versus the time-consuming precise fix in verifying holdings information. NYPL has one of the largest circulating public branch library collections in the United States, and is also a major research library. The presentation will discuss how the library uses collaborative efforts of the collection development, selection, cataloging, and acquisitions areas to maintain accurate holdings information and prioritize backlogged projects while maintaining the day to day responsibilities of acquisitions.

Come join us on Saturday, January 9, from 3-4 pm at the Boston Convention and Exposition Center, room 156C, to hear these presentations and get some useful tips.

Time:                     Saturday, June 27, 2015, 3:00-4:00

Location:              Moscone Convention Center, 3002 (W)

 Please join us for two presentations on holdings data in GOKb and BIBFRAME.

 Kristen Wilson, Associate Head, Acquisitions and Discovery, GOKb Editor, North Carolina State University Libraries, will speak on The Global Open Knowledgebase (GOKb), a partnership between Kuali OLE and Jisc. GOKb is an open data repository of information related to electronic resources as they are acquired and managed by libraries. Holdings information is a core component of GOKb. This presentation will describe the ways in which GOKb has addressed holdings information so far, as well as some of the challenges and opportunities that the project has identified as a result of this work.

Xiaoli Li , Co-Head of Content Support Services, Department at the University of California (UC) Davis General Library, will speak on the potential for rich bibliographic description of resources that BIBFRAME offers. However linking these resources to library holdings data is not natively part of the BIBFRAME framework. How will serials cataloging be impacted by implementation of BIBFRAME? How will libraries handle their holdings data in BIBFRAME description? This presentation will shed some light on these issues. Xiaoli will share what UC Davis has learned from their experiment with converting serials from MARC to BIBFRAME. She will also present her thoughts on what libraries will need to do in order to move their legacy serial bibliographic and holdings data into BIBFRAME.

Time:                     Saturday, January 31, 3:00-4:00 p.m.

Location:              McCormick Place West, Room W181a

Cecilia Genereux, Manager of the Metadata & Intellectual Access Unit of the University of Minnesota Libraries, will speak on their recent migration to Alma. In late 2013 the University of Minnesota Libraries moved from Ex Libris’s Aleph integrated library system to its new cloud-based system, Alma, and Primo Central for discovery. Moving to a new library system is exciting. A new system offers opportunities for improved functionality, new workflows, and possible efficiencies. This presentation will look at how serials cataloging workflows have been affected by the move to Alma and Primo Central.

 Frances McNamara, Director, Integrated Library Systems and Administrative and Desktop Systems at the University of Chicago Library, will speak on migrating serials data from Horizon to Kuali OLE. Her presentation will review and compare where data resides in Horizon and OLE. Bibliographic records, summary holding records, item records, and serial check-in receipt records will be covered. The decision to not migrate prediction will be discussed and decisions to collapse certain data will be explained. The data mapping and processes used will be described. Frances will also talk about what was successful and what was problematic.

Please join the ALCTS CRS Holdings Information Committee at the ALA Annual Conference in Las Vegas on
Saturday, June 28th from 3:00-4:00 p.m. in the Las Vegas Convention Center, Room 203 B. We have three presentations demonstrating three different perspectives on the manipulation and use of holdings data:

MarcEdit and OCLC Integration

Terry Reese, the developer of the MarcEdit software program, will discuss MarcEdit and current integration opportunities, focusing on the new OCLC Metadata API service. He will demonstrate how MarcEdit has been able to utilize that service to provide deep integration to support direct and local bibliographic editing of WorldCat data directly within MarcEdit, as well as support batch holdings management through the interface. The presentation will discuss the current capabilities, some gaps, and how interested individuals could get started.

BIBFRAME, ISSN, and the Future of Serials

Regina Reynolds, Coordinator, U.S. ISSN Center, Library of Congress shares her thoughts about the ISSN and the future of serials description and access as we transition from MARC21 to BIBFRAME.

Josh Pyle, CTO and President of Dublin Six, will disuss holdings verification through the use of The AUDITOR software package. Installed on an institution’s network, The Auditor passively monitors all network traffic and makes libraries aware of every form of content that is being used and presents this information in COUNTER-style reports. The Auditor’s reports include content from every publisher on every platform, and also reports on content from open access or free information sources. Sophisticated click-stream analysis infers library holdings in real-time. Unexpected access denials, including broken links, are detected immediately.

“Leveraging Your Linked Data: How Promotion of Linked Data Initiatives Gives Small Projects Big Visibility”

“Leveraging Your Linked Data: How Promotion of Linked Data Initiatives Gives Small Projects Big Visibility”

We’ve seen how daring colleagues, armed with 30 minutes and a free tool, made big discoveries using even small Linked Data samples. How can these findings be communicated to the wider world—within the institution, the consortia, and beyond? What opportunities exist for Shared Print Repositories in surfacing the Linked Data efforts of their members? How might the discovery platforms play a role? What should we expect in terms of new standards in the display of Linked Data records? Please join us to discuss next steps in Linked Data.

Please join the ALCTS CRS Holdings Information Committee and the Continuing Resources Cataloging Committee at ALA Midwinter in Seattle:

Saturday, January 26th from 3:00-5:30 pm in the Washington State Convention Center. Room 611-614.

Linked Data for Holdings and Cataloging: The first step is the hardest!

Both Committees thank OCLC for sponsoring this session.

om pre-conferences to webinars, there is a lot of talk recently about Linked Data. However, so far only large resource-rich organizations seem to have projects underway. Is the utilization of Linked Data even possible—or relevant—for my library? How would I even get started? Join the Holdings and Cataloging Committees to learn more. In our first hour, Eric Miller of Zepheira will explain why the use of Linked Data is so exciting from a holdings perspective by sharing early findings of libraries experimenting with the Bibliographic Framework Initiative. Richard Wallis from OCLC will then discuss Linked Data from a cataloging perspective with the recent release of records for Linked Data. 

The second half of our forum, beginning at 4:30, will show real life examples put together using free tools by brave volunteers from libraries just like yours!  Violeta Ilik from Texas A&M used Viewshare to generate and customize unique, dynamic views of data about faculty members, their research areas, PhD granting institutions, and the authority records in the Virtual International Authority File (VIAF). Jeremy Myntti from University of Utah will show different ways that lots of existing metadata from digital collections can be exposed through the creation of unique user interfaces, including maps and faceting displays. Viewing data in different ways may reveal things about your data that you never knew. Eric Miller will be on hand to help interested attendees get started on their own projects. We know you are out there, come share your experiences with those eager to begin linking data!
