Discussion CRS Committee on Holdings Information Forum at ALA Annual: Holdings and Discovery System

by Shelley Almgren on Wed, Jun 8, 2016 at 09:11 am

Incorporating holdings information in a library's discovery system is a challenge.  The Holdings Information Committee of the ALCTS Continuing Resources Section presents the experiences of two librarians’ efforts to ensure accuracy and improve discovery.

Incorporating holdings information in a library's discovery system is a challenge.  The Holdings Information Committee of the ALCTS Continuing Resources Section presents the experiences of two librarians’ efforts to ensure accuracy and improve discovery.

Regina Koury, Assistant University Librarian, Discovery & Resource Services Department at the Ida State University library, will speak on her experience  with EBSCO's EDS. This dynamic, full of real examples presentation will look at examples of managing content in EDS to improve discovery of resources: from linking issues to ClinicalKey records to dealing with “bound with” local catalog records. Regina will address obstacles faced and solutions found and her library's experience working with EBSCO. Following this session, participants will be able to apply “how to” techniques to troubleshoot content issues.

Chenwei Zhao, Electronic Resource Librarian at University of Connecticut Libraries, will present her experience in the migration to Alma and Primo. Upon implementation of ExLibris Alma/Primo, UConn Libraries’ new Integrated Library System and discovery layer, their e-serials holdings information has been migrated into Alma knowledge base. Since then, Chenwei Zhao has been focusing on the cleanup work, with the goal to refine holdings, consolidate collections, reduce duplications, simplify displays, and improve user experience. In this presentation, she will share her experience in solving these puzzles from an Electronic Resource Librarian’s perspective.  

Please join us Saturday, June 25th, from 3-4 pm in the Orange County Convention Center, room W103A.

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

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.

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

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.
