    Practical Linked Data in the Classroom
    Competencies and Education for a Career in Cataloging Interest Group
    ALA Annual Conference, Friday, June 21, 2019, 1-2 pm in Room 143A, Washington Convention Center
     
    For the past decade or more Linked Data has been discussed at nearly every conference and taught in nearly every cataloging course. Despite OCLC’s WorldCat, LC’s name authorities and subject headings, and a few other sources being available as Linked Data, the implementation and use of Linked Data in cataloging work now feels so Sisyphean that many instructors and practitioners are at a loss as to what to discuss or teach.
     
    Please join us for presentations by and discussions with Tina Shrader, Head, Unit 1, Cataloging and Metadata Management Section, Technical Services Division, National Library of Medicine, and Paul Frank, Coordinator, NACO and SACO Programs at Library of Congress. Shrader and Frank will address the practical side of Linked Data, the specific skills we should be teaching, and how we can best prepare students of all kinds for a linked data future.

    Teaching RDA-3R and IFLA-LRM to LIS Students and Metadata Professionals

    Join us for the CaMMS Competencies and Education for a Career in Cataloging Interest Group Meeting, Friday 25 January 2019 from 1:00-2:30 pm in Room 3B, Washington State Convention Center.

    The IFLA Library Reference Model (IFLA-LRM), a harmonization of the IFLA Functional Requirements theoretical models, has become the foundational model for the recent revision of Resource Description and Access (RDA-3R). LIS instructors are at a loss for methods to teach these new versions when they come into mainstream use. In particular, the RDA-3R revision provides no context for a linear path or starting point for creating metadata, which will present new challenges for study and teaching. Join us for a brainstorming and planning discussion to develop methods for instruction of RDA-3R and the IFLA-LRM.
