4. ISSN Program

Regina Reynolds (Director, U.S. ISSN Center and Head, ISSN Section at Library of Congress)
Since its inception more than 40 years ago, ISSN has become a crucial identifier in the chain of trade, a key for serials processing, essential for access to journals and their articles, an identifier used by the US Postal Service and by rights management agencies, and much more. This presentation will review the history of the U.S. ISSN Center, the evolution of the ISSN standard, current uses and issues regarding ISSN, and ISSN’s potential in the linked data environment.

Steve Shadle (Serials Access Librarian at University of Washington)
It is not uncommon for publishers and contact providers to only provide current title and ISSN (rather than an entire journal title history) to knowledge base providers. This discussion will provide an overview of how two knowledge bases (Serials Solutions and ExLibris Alma) manage this metadata and the resulting user display and access issues.

Diane Boehr (Head of the Cataloging and Metadata Management Section at National Library of Medicine)
NLM was one of the earliest supporters and users of the ISSN. This presentation looks at the history and current use of ISSN data in NLM’s indexing activities, as well as some local practices adopted to ensure quality data in our article citations.

Event Linked Data for Holdings and Cataloging: Interactive Session

by ALAConnect Helpdesk (staff) on Tue, Feb 12, 2013 at 04:54 pm

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.

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!
