Games and Gaming Forum Forum/Update Dallas Convention Center
D227
Description :

Join us for two fascinating presentations during the Games and Gaming Round Table's first ever forum/update.

Dave Pattern will talk about Lemon Tree (https://library.hud.ac.uk/lemontree/, http://library.hud.ac.uk/blogs/projects/lemontree/), a project to “gamify” the library experience at the University of Huddersfield (UK). The project is still in its infancy, but the aim is to make using the library fun and, by hooking into the social network of the players, to attract students who otherwise might not have engaged with the library. This session will also include findings from the Library Impact Data Project, which investigated the link between library usage and academic achievement at 8 academic universities in the UK.

ALA's National Gaming Day @ your library is a fairly new event created to promote the “educational, recreational, and social value of all types of games”. The University of North Texas Library has participated for two years and has organized their event to offer fun along with a focus on research and development opportunities available for people interested in all aspects of gaming. In this talk, Diane Robson and Bethany Ross will detail the planning and organization of NGD at an academic library.

Afterward, ALA staffer Jenny Levine will talk about changes coming to this year's NGD event.

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.
