A Metadata Application Profile For Orcid, Dong Joon Lee, Michael Witt, Richard Urban, Beth Plale

Libraries Faculty and Staff Presentations

Open Researcher and Contributor ID (ORCID) is an open, nonprofit, and community-driven effort to prevent name confusion in research and scholarly communities. ORCID Registry (developed by ORCID) distinguishes researchers and contributors by assigning unique researcher identifiers and linking research activities and outputs, including scholarly works, affiliations, and funding, to these identifiers. Since the registry service launched in October 2012, the number of ORCID identifiers has rapidly increased, and the registry has been continuously improved through the active use of ORCID API. This study aims to fill the gap between practical uses in and conceptual understandings of ORCID Registry. Since the …

Mets For The Cultural Heritage Community: A Literature Review, Sharon Cheslow Aug 2014

Mets For The Cultural Heritage Community: A Literature Review, Sharon Cheslow

Library Philosophy and Practice (e-journal)

METS (Metadata Encoding and Transmission Standard) is an XML-based, data communication standard used for digital collections in cultural heritage institutions, including libraries, archives, and museums, and maintained by the Library of Congress. Recent articles have been written for those in the cultural heritage community who may find METS beneficial. Even so, the uses of METS are still being discovered in terms of best practices and interoperability. One of the main issues with METS is how it can be used with external schemas such as MODS, PREMIS, or Dublin Core. This paper includes a brief description of METS as a wrapper …


Metadata Migration To Islandora: Is There An Easy Way?, Sai Deng, Lee Dotson Jun 2014

Metadata Migration To Islandora: Is There An Easy Way?, Sai Deng, Lee Dotson

Faculty Scholarship and Creative Works

This presentation will introduce UCF’s digital collection migration from DigiTool to Islandora, the new content management system for the state universities in Florida. It discusses the issues in DublinCore (DC) to MODS transformation, explores the possible options, the approach adopted and the tool used for MODS metadata editing.

As part of the state-wide Islandora implementation, UCF has been migrating its collections in DigiTool to MODS records for Islandora to ingest. In migrating from a less granular metadata schema to a more granular one, many issues are involved such as data ambiguity, overly generic data representation, the markup inadequacy in describing …

Lightning Round: Moving Those Marcs: Workflows For Loading Library Catalog Holdings To A Discovery Layer, Gloria Slaughter, Brianne N. Hagen May 2014

Lightning Round: Moving Those Marcs: Workflows For Loading Library Catalog Holdings To A Discovery Layer, Gloria Slaughter, Brianne N. Hagen

Faculty Presentations

After adding the discovery layer 1Search at Hope College, we had to quickly adapt our cataloging workflows to reflect our library's holdings within this product. Quarterly loads of the institution's full catalog holdings are sent in MARC record format, as well as daily updates and deletes to keep the records in 1Search current. This poster aims to present workflows for sending discovery layer updates and deletes, as well as considerations for technical services departments when deciding on discovery layer services. Academic libraries which currently have a discovery layer or are considering one will find this poster most helpful.

Understanding Ultimate Use Data And Its Implication For Digital Library Management: A Case Study, Michele Reilly, Santi Thompson May 2014

Understanding Ultimate Use Data And Its Implication For Digital Library Management: A Case Study, Michele Reilly, Santi Thompson

Library Scholarship

Information professionals and librarians have been studying, discussing, and developing digital libraries for over two decades, but understanding ultimate use of images from digital libraries remains a mystery for many of them. Most articles written on digital library use focus on users’ search retrieval needs and behavior. Few mention how digital library patrons use the images they request. Like many digital libraries, archives, and special collections, the University of Houston Digital Library makes high resolution images available to their patrons. Image delivery is achieved by an automated system, titled the Digital Cart Service. An unexpected benefit of the Digital Cart …


Mining The Blob: There’S Gold In The Directory!, Kathryn Lybarger May 2014

Mining The Blob: There’S Gold In The Directory!, Kathryn Lybarger

Library Presentations

When running reports from Voyager, we usually focus on the fields deemed important enough to index, and avoid the blob version of the MARC records whenever possible. For some questions, however, the blob is not just the only way to the answer, but a surprisingly fast way as well. Though MARC is mainly used as a method to communicate bibliographic data, the format itself contains an index that can be used to quickly determine the broad shape of a record's content. In this talk, I will describe several projects in which I have specifically taken advantage of MARC's directory format …

Collaborative Organizational Infrastructures To Support Open Access Journals, Marianne A. Buehler

Library Faculty Presentations

With the advancement of open access (OA) journal publishing opportunities in partnership with presses and faculty, libraries in alignment with intersecting academic values are fulfilling a need by supporting sustainable models of scholarly communication that incorporate disseminating faculty scholarship in collaboration with library and/or press staff and editors to “start up” an OA journal or transform an existing print journal to OA. Library staff that embrace faculty or student publishing partnerships are structuring and utilizing their scholarly communication skill sets by positioning the availability of open access publications to disseminate quality research results.

Utilizing Ir Content Discovery Streams, Marianne A. Buehler Mar 2014

Utilizing Ir Content Discovery Streams, Marianne A. Buehler

Library Faculty Presentations

Institutional repositories (IRs) host an abundance of unique and valued digital content. The premise of garnering scholarly and local collection materials is to engage them for visibility and accessibility. As an additional tool to assist in the process of creating an infrastructure for reachable content, the WorldCat Digital Collection Gateway tool enables academic libraries to target individual repository collections to minimally harvest the metadata and be visible through WorldCat.org and OAIster. Collection items display their metadata while available full-text deposits from the Gateway create links to expose an IR’s record and the object itself that could include an article or …


The Conversion Of Marc Metadata For Online Visual Resource Collections: A Case Study Of Tactics, Challenges And Results, Brighid Mooney Gonzales Feb 2014

The Conversion Of Marc Metadata For Online Visual Resource Collections: A Case Study Of Tactics, Challenges And Results, Brighid Mooney Gonzales

Library Philosophy and Practice (e-journal)

With a great deal of legacy metadata currently existing in the increasingly outdated MARC format, many institutions are searching for efficient ways to convert this data into formats that are more current, extensible and suitable for the description of digital and non-print materials. In this study, a group of digitized photographs from a Library of Congress collection with MARC records available is converted into a set of Dublin Core records to document the process involved in such a conversion. Successful tactics used, challenges encountered and the overall results of the conversion process are detailed.

Contentdm And Content Pro: A Comparison And Evaluation, Elizabeth Byrne Jan 2014

Contentdm And Content Pro: A Comparison And Evaluation, Elizabeth Byrne

Library Philosophy and Practice (e-journal)

This paper examines two Digital Asset Management Systems (DAMS) to determine their suitability to provide access to digital photographic surrogates from a library’s archival photographic collection. The two DAMS examined are OCLC’s CONTENTdm (CDM) and Innovative Interfaces Inc.’s (III) Content Pro (CP). While both have been widely adopted, a literature review reveals that very little has been written about CP compared to CDM. Both use metadata schemes that are interoperable, reusable, and extensible and it is determined that both CDM and CP’s DAMS’ attributes recommend them. However, further work is needed to select one over the other. This includes consulting …

Auditing The Office For Learning And Teaching Resource Library, Philip Hider, Barney Dalgarno, Sue Bennett, Ying-Hsang Liu, Carole Gerts, Carla Daws, Barbara Spiller, Robert Parkes, Pat Knight, Raylee Macaulay, Lauren Carlson

Information Management

The Australian government Office for Learning and Teaching’s (OLT) Resource Library was a key means of disseminating the outcomes from projects funded by itself and its predecessor organisations, the Australian Learning and Teaching Council (ALTC) and the Carrick Institute. In order to apply the recommendations and resources emanating from these projects, it is vital that educators and other stakeholders are aware of, and effectively able to use, the Resource Library. Based on anecdotal evidence indicating a lack of awareness of the Resource Library and problems with consistently being able to search for and retrieve relevant resources from the database, the …

Premis-Lite, A Preservation Metadata Generator., Todd P. Swanson

Library Philosophy and Practice (e-journal)

Digital preservation is without question an important, if not essential, facet of our now digital society. Implementing a digital preservation strategy is crucial to ensuring the longevity and sustained usability of digital content. The importance of digital preservation is not limited to large-scale institutions and organizations, but also extends to private individuals and small-scale businesses.

PREMIS is currently the international preservation metadata standard. The objective of PREMIS was to identify and create a wide ranging and implementable set of "core" preservation metadata elements while following the recommendations of the Open Archival Information System (OAIS) reference model. However, the depth and …
