FRBR Interest Group Discussion/Interest group Dallas Convention Center
D168
Description :

There is more to Functional Requirements than just FRBR. Come join us to learn more about FRAD and the other FR models from our very knowledgeable presenters, Qiang Jin and Dr. Shawne Miksa.
Qiang Jin is Senior Coordinating Cataloger and NACO Coordinator, Associate Professor of Library Administration at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign Library. Her presentation will provide a basic explanation of the Functional Requirements for Authority Data (FRAD): A Conceptual Model. It will illustrate the Conceptual Model for Authority Data with specific examples, and explain the FRAD entities, attributes of those entities and relationships between those entities with many specific examples so that attendees will be able to understand the FRAD model. It will include some brief RDA authority records exemplifying the major FRAD relationships.
Dr. Shawne Miksa is an Associate Professor in the Department of Library and Information Sciences and Acting Associate Director of the Interdisciplinary Information Science PhD Program in the College of Information (COI), University of North Texas. In her presentation, Dr. Miska will list and define the 12 user tasks from all three FR Models (FRBR, FRAD, FRSAD) and present her conception of corresponding tasks that an information organizer (cataloger, metadata specialist, etc.) performs to support the user tasks. Most of these tasks are not new to the practice, and Dr. Miska will show how they can be re-cast to correspond with the functionality models.

Intellectual Access to Preservation Metadata Interest Group Discussion/Interest group Dallas Convention Center
D171
Description :

Data, datasets, and data management are becoming an increasingly important parts of the library collection management portfolio. In this context, librarians seek new tools and approaches that support researchers in the full research life cycle. Researchers have a number of requirements: the data must be easy to find, it must give credit to the researchers, it must be citable, and, above all, any maintenance must be easy.

Good data management is the answer, and built with hardware and infrastructure but also metadata: metadata for citation, access and preservation. Making this *easy* is the business of new tools like EZID, a persistent identifier service from California Digital Library.

Joan Starr, is the EZID Service Manager and Manager of Strategic and Project Planning at CDL, and the Chair of DataCite's Metadata Working Group. She will provide an overview of some of the key issues in dataset metadata, and give special focus on ways that EZID can help you extend your collection-building activities to datasets, allowing you to preserve your institution’s research investments.

Cataloging and Classification Research Interest Group Discussion/Interest group Dallas Convention Center
A306
Description :

In the current economic climate, libraries must adopt cost-effective methods to facilitate access to collections. Vendor-provided records enable access to individual titles when batch-loaded into the catalog, but often have substantial quality issues. In this year’s meeting, CCRIG explores the benefits, challenges, and best practices for batch-loading vendor catalog records. Following the presentations, there will be an opportunity for audience questions and a panel discussion of issues by the presenters.

“Batchloading: Current Practices and Future Challenges: A Survey of Large Research Libraries,” presented by Rebecca L. Mugridge MacIntosh: A review of survey results showing how batchloading records for access to digital collections can impact staffing, budgets, workflow, and quality standards. The data also examines how batchloading activities are managed within libraries, how information technology issues support and/or hinder batchloading activities, and how libraries assess the effectiveness of batch loading.

“Quality Issues in Vendor-provided Records for E-books,” presented by Stacie Traill and Chew Chiat Naun: The University of Minnesota Libraries documented and analyzed types of errors in vendor-supplied batchloaded records for electronic book collections. This presentation describes specific error types detected and the methods developed for identifying and correcting errors, including use of the MARCEdit tool. It also discusses unresolved issues in quality control for batchloaded records, and proposes some potential larger-scale solutions.

“Fast, but Accurate? Pitfalls of Batch Metadata Editing,” presented by Kathryn Lybarger: A discussion of problems and inconsistencies in MARC records for electronic resource packages that may be unexpected and difficult to reconcile using batch processes. Includes tips on how to process record batches to help maintain an accurate catalog, while taking advantage of the efficiency enabled by batch editing.
