Please join us for the following timely presentations at the ALCTS CaMMS Cataloging Management Interest Group at ALA Midwinter, Chicago.

1. OCLC Hybrid records

The quantity of hybrid records in WorldCat is growing daily. Come hear how OCLC is systematically adding RDA elements to non-RDA bibliographic records in accordance with the PCC Guidelines on Hybrid Bibliographic Records and why that is a benefit to your library.

2. RDA Enrichment at the University of Colorado Boulder

Please join us for the following timely presentations at the ALCTS CaMMS Cataloging Management Interest Group at ALA Midwinter, Chicago.

1. OCLC Hybrid records

The quantity of hybrid records in WorldCat is growing daily. Come hear how OCLC is systematically adding RDA elements to non-RDA bibliographic records in accordance with the PCC Guidelines on Hybrid Bibliographic Records and why that is a benefit to your library.

2. RDA Enrichment at the University of Colorado Boulder

Working with Backstage Library Works the University of Colorado Boulder Libraries has just completed RDA enrichment for over 3 million bibliographic records. This presentation will discuss the steps taken to prepare for this work, key decisions made along the way, and the impact upon ongoing operations.

3. Full catalog RDA enrichment in a cloud-based LMS

The University of Minnesota Libraries began planning a full catalog RDA enrichment project with vendor Backstage Library Works in 2013. The project, resulting in the enhancement of approximately 5.6 million bibliographic records, was completed in Fall 2014, after the University Libraries migrated to Ex Libris's Alma cloud-based library management system. This presentation will address the planning and testing stages of the project, including how record elements were selected for "hybridization," and which elements were not changed. Also covered will be the design and execution of the large-scale export and overlay processes in a cloud-based system, and some of the system issues encountered over the course of the project. Finally, the presentation will discuss impacts of the enrichment project on catalog data in the Libraries' discovery system (Ex Libris's Primo), and the ongoing work to analyze and act upon the report data provided by the vendor as part of the project output.

4. Roles and Reels: RDA and Relationship Designators for Moving Images

This presentation will explore some of the findings of the OLAC Movie & Video Credit Annotation Experiment (http://olac-annotator.org/ ). One of the outputs of this project is a large, multilingual list of free-text role and function information from the following subfields of MARC records for moving image resources: 245$c, 260$b, 264$b, 508$a, 511$a. This presentation will analyze some of the results and discuss the possibility of using this corpus in conjunction with natural language processing to add relationship designator information to existing records for film and video. Finally, it will discuss some implications for the use of relationship designators in RDA.

“Making a Digitized Collection Searchable in Summon” presented by Ruth Elder, Cataloging Librarian, Troy University Library.

“Making a Digitized Collection Searchable in Summon” presented by Ruth Elder, Cataloging Librarian, Troy University Library.

Troy University has a digitized postcard collection which has been “cataloged” using CONTENTdm. The problem is this collection is not easily accessible for our patrons. This digitization project was made possible through Alabama Mosaic, a repository of Alabama's historical digital materials. Anyone can access the Alabama Mosaic site and search the postcards as well as many other Alabama digitized collections. Troy University Libraries chose the ProQuest Summon Service in order to allow patrons a “one-stop” searching experience. This presentation will explain the steps taken to make the collection searchable in ProQuest Summon.

“Are We Thinking While We're Linking?: 856 Clean-up and Categorization” presented by Kristen E. Martin, Electronic Resources Management Librarian, The University of Chicago Library.

This summer, the University of Chicago will migrate to the Kuali Open Library Environment (OLE), using VuFind as the front end of the catalog. With more granular display options within VuFind and new methods for managing URLs within OLE, a major 856 clean-up and review project needed to be undertaken. The current 856 URL clean-up program is designed to seek out and remove unwanted/misleading URLs, fix up over a decades' worth of bad and outdated coding, and make sure that 856s that go to full text are properly coded and consistently displayed. Within OLE, information from 856s that meet certain criteria will be moved to the e-holdings record, which will provide additional management and display options. New URLs being imported on print records are now subject to additional review and processing. This presentation will cover the clean-up process, ongoing work to manage new 856s in the catalog, and considerations for future access of electronic resources within OLE.

“Special Project in the Management of Batch Loading Vendor Records: Options, Strategy and Problem Solving” presented by Sherab Chen, E-Resources & Metadata Librarian, University Librries, Ohio State University.

As a trend occurring in many libraries today, we’re having a noticeable increase of batch loading vendor records in comparison with locally conducted cataloging for all e-resources the library acquires. The presenter will share his experience in meeting the challenges posed by large vendor record loads from a variety of sources including Gale, Project Muse and Alexander Street. He will talk about options in loading vendor records to the catalog, and strategy and solutions in fixing problematic vendor records for batch loading. He will also address the unique problems posed by update loads to existing packages. The presenter hopes to have opportunities to make suggestions to vendors on records improvements as well as receive feedback from colleagues coming to the meeting.

The presentations and related discussion will be followed by a short business meeting.

“RDA Implementation--Catalog and Display Issues” presented by Roman Panchyshyn, Catalog Librarian and Assistant Professor, at Kent State University Libraries.

“RDA Implementation--Catalog and Display Issues” presented by Roman Panchyshyn, Catalog Librarian and Assistant Professor, at Kent State University Libraries.

This presentation reviews issues librarians and system administrators need to consider, with regards to their local catalog, when dealing with RDA implementation. We will look at changes and adjustments that libraries need to consider making to their catalogs to effectively handle RDA and RDA hybrid MARC records. We will also look at RDA display issues and their impact on patron displays. In addition, we will share a simple but effective display option that Kent State University Libraries and OhioLINK have proposed to their catalog vendor to resolve the problem of the disappearing General Material Designation (GMD) for patrons.

“Transitioning to a 21st Century “Catalog”: Challenges and Successes” presented by Richard Sapon-White, Head of Cataloging and Metadata Services, Oregon State University.

Members of the Orbis Cascade Alliance are currently transitioning from their local integrated library systems to a new, single system that will function as both a local and a union catalog. As part of this multiyear project, member libraries will complete a number of catalog maintenance tasks in advance of the cutover to the new system including: eliminating duplicate 001 fields; removing subfield delimiters from 007 fields; resolving multiple item records attached to a single bibliographic record when items are in the same location but have different call numbers; ensuring that all bibliographic records have an 003 field with “(OCoLC)” only; performing an OCLC reclamation project.

“Managing Bibliographic and Descriptive Metadata for HathiTrust” presented by Jonathan E. Rothman, Head, Library Systems Office, University of Michigan University Library.

This presentation will focus on how and when HathiTrust obtains bibliographic metadata from partner institutions, the underlying assumption that the definitive bibliographic record resides in partner's own catalogs and/or WorldCat, and some of the issues, challenges and processes involved in managing metadata that is created and maintained by a distributed set of diverse institutions.

The presentations and related discussion will be followed by a short business meeting.

Preprocessing Materials for a Remote Storage Facility” presented by Brian Dobreski, Catalog Librarian, Syracuse University

The Syracuse University Libraries Cataloging Department has been actively involved in preparing a variety of materials for the recently opened Syracuse University Library Facility (SULF), a high-density, near-campus storage facility that will house approximately 1.2 million volumes. Transfer of these materials from the general collections allows for future collection growth and reconsideration of the use of library space on campus, but their removal from physical browsing areas, as well as the request and retrieval procedures employed at SULF, necessitates acceptable representation in the library catalog. In response, catalogers have been dispatched to a number of locations on campus to preprocess library materials designated for storage, a task which involves review and correction of all associated records in the library's catalog. Their preparation of materials for ingest at SULF has brought to light a number of problems in the catalog, and required a variety of catalog maintenance workflows and quality controls in response. Common problems encountered during preprocessing activities have included pockets of incomplete retrospective conversion, the discovery of missing and previously withdrawn items, complicated bound-with and filmed-with situations, multi-format records, incorrect item locations, and other mistakes and omissions in the catalog. Such problems were overcome by establishing minimal guidelines for discoverability, devising specific workflows for the preparation of different portions of the collection, utilizing reports for quality control of all materials headed to storage, maintaining a high level of communication with SULF staff, and other strategies. Work thus far has resulted in the correction of a number of problems in the catalog, assured a high level of access for materials in storage, and helped further establish the importance of cataloging staff at Syracuse University.

"Batch editing: software and regular expressions” presented by Julene Jones, Head, Database Integrity, William T. Young Library

The University of Kentucky Libraries have undertaken multiple bibliographic integrity projects recently, including those resulting from an OCLC reclamation project, to discovered errors in loader tables, updating authorized headings in bibliographic records and adding or editing standard notes.  This presentation will discuss our workflows, including the usage of regular expressions, MarcEdit and Voyager's Global Data Change.

Automating Name Authority Record Updates and Bibliographic File Maintenance: a Proof of Concept” presented by Lucas (Wing Kau) Mak, Metadata and Catalog Librarian, Michigan State University Libraries

Batch reissuance of LC Name Authority File (LCNAF) and manual upgrading/recoding of pre-RDA name authority records (NARs) have created an overwhelming burden to catalog maintenance staff. The sheer volume of changed NARs and potential bibliographic file maintenance (BFM) could easily stall in-house authority control process. At Michigan State University Libraries, an AutoIt script for automating the process was tested. This script works from a .mrc file of NARs extracted from ILS and utilizes XSLT, OCLC LCNAF SRU service, SkyRiver, and MarcEdit to detect and bring in updated NARs, and complete corresponding BFM by ILS global update function. Without going into the technicality of the script, this presentation will talk about the design of the workflow, challenges, and limitations of the script. A live demo will be included if time permits.
