Role of the Professional Librarian in Technical Services Discussion/Interest group Dallas Convention Center
D174
Description :

Perpetual Access: Peaks and Pitfalls

We know that we want to have perpetual access clauses in our licenses and we know that publishers will provide them, but what are we actually getting with our perpetual access rights? In this informal group setting, we will discuss the results of our examination of perpetual access clauses from 20 of the Texas A&M University Libraries’ licenses for our major journal packages, including the impact on our electronic resources and serials workflows; the potential impact on the acquisitions and cataloging staff; and how perpetual access affects our current and/or future functions as technical services librarians. We will present a chart comparing the perpetual access rights offered by the 20 publishers and we will then open the discussion to the audience to learn how librarians at other institutions deal with perpetual access.

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.

Sunday, January 22 - 1:00pm

1:30pm - 3:30pm
Book and Paper Interest Group Discussion/Interest group Dallas Convention Center
D171
Description :

Meeting of the PARS Book and Paper Interest Group to present topics of interestJoin us for a variety of talks about exhibit issues. Some of the questions we will be exploring are:
• Are people feeling greater pressure from their institutions to increase (or in some cases initiate) their exhibition presence, with exhibit calendars becoming more compressed?
• What departments are defining the calendar of exhibits, their timing, and their focus? How much notice are people getting for changing exhibits? Are these changes included within their budgets, or are special resources allocated for them? Are people talking about long-term reallocation of staff time to address exhibit issues?
• Are any institutions building new exhibit spaces for their collections, whether as part of an overall remodel or on an ad-hoc basis? Or are people working with their existing exhibit spaces, making do with what they have and putting a remodel request on their wish list?
• Assuming people are including some online presence with their exhibitions, how has this online presence/workflow been incorporated into the existing resource/budget/staff framework? Is anyone using new media blogging/web outlets as a virtual “exhibition” presence and forgoing a physical exhibition space entirely?
Come hear how some of your colleagues have grappled with these questions. We look forward to seeing you in Dallas.

1:30pm - 3:30pm
RDA Update Forum Forum/Update Dallas Convention Center
C146
Description :

Panelists will outline key cataloging changes related to RDA and steps being taken in preparation for implementation sometime after January 2013. Although there is at least a year before wide scale implementation of RDA, changes are already impacting workflow and data exchange.

In an effort to economize on speakers and room space and to add emphasis to this topic CaMMS is foregoing its Friday Forum to join with the TF in presenting this RDA Forum.

Scheduled presenters include: Beacher Wiggins (Library of Congress), Linda Barnhart (Chair PCC), Glenn Patton (OCLC), Sally McCallum (MARBI) and Troy Linker (ALA Publishing).

Monday, January 23 - 1:00pm

1:30pm - 3:30pm
Technical Services Workflow Efficiency Interest Group Discussion/Interest group Dallas Convention Center
D227
Description :

With constant budget cuts libraries are focusing on digitizing their unique and special collections. More metadata is now being created in house by staff that formerly only did traditional cataloging. The panelists will discuss their approaches to transitioning staff away from traditional cataloging and towards metadata. Learn from this panel how libraries have trained traditional cataloging staff to create metadata for their digital collections as part of their normal cataloging workflows and any obstacles or lessons learned during the transition to this new type of cataloging. The digital collections discussed will include institutional repositories, oral histories, museum collections and archival collections of all shapes and sizes.
