To Discovery And Beyond: Using Workflow Automation As An Opportunity For Collaboration And Education, Rebecca B. French 2020 James Madison University

To Discovery And Beyond: Using Workflow Automation As An Opportunity For Collaboration And Education, Rebecca B. French

Libraries

This poster describes a project to automate portions of JMU Libraries' workflow for distributing Special Collections finding aids to various discovery platforms. Through the development of a custom Python app called Spaceport, we were able to greatly improve the efficiency and sustainability of this process while also providing a more consistent discovery experience for our patrons. The project also had broad impacts in other areas. Our incremental and collaborative approach provided space for professional development related to the project, supported evolving project goals and the process of adapting to the new workflow, and strengthened relationships between departments. In addition to ...


Poetry, Sort Of: My Experience Using Library Of Congress Subject Headings And The Supplemental List Of Seventh-Day Adventist Subject Headings, Daniel J. Drazen 2020 Andrews University

Poetry, Sort Of: My Experience Using Library Of Congress Subject Headings And The Supplemental List Of Seventh-Day Adventist Subject Headings, Daniel J. Drazen

Journal of Adventist Libraries and Archives

The Library of Congress Subject Headings, for all its seeming comprehension, has not always been up to the task of covering Seventh-day Adventist subject matter better than the Supplementary List of Subject Headings published by the Loma Linda University Libraries as used by the Seventh-day Adventist Periodical Index. More important, there has been, and continues to be, a need to coin new terms as they are needed. To rely primarily on one source for assigning index terms, however comprehensive it might seem generally, is too inflexible a strategy to be realistic. Relying on both the LCSH and the SLSH is ...

Increasing Access To Web Archives: Archive-It And The Discovery Layer, Christina A. Beis, Kayla Harris, Stephanie Shreffler 2020 University of Dayton

Increasing Access To Web Archives: Archive-It And The Discovery Layer, Christina A. Beis, Kayla Harris, Stephanie Shreffler

Marian Library Faculty Publications

Effective collaboration between archives and technical services increases the discoverability of special collection materials. Archivists at the University of Dayton had been using Archive-It to collect websites for a few years, but the information was isolated in a separate platform and wasn’t effectively marketed to users. Working together, the team of archivists and technical services librarians incorporated the website collections into the discovery layer. Metadata was added at the seed level and indexed on a single, user-friendly platform, with statistics gathered after promotion.

Review Of Ethical Questions In Name Authority Control, Itza A. Carbajal 2020 University of Texas at Austin

Review Of Ethical Questions In Name Authority Control, Itza A. Carbajal

Journal of Contemporary Archival Studies

Ethical Questions in Name Authority Control is a new and thoughtful addition to the metadata and cataloging field of study and practice. Consisting of eighteen essays written by a number of libraries, archives, and information scholars, this edited volume investigates and responds to a number of ethical questions regarding name authority control.These include topics such as the privacy of the creator, use of geographic names for contested lands, critique of the use of gender in authority control systems, as well as considerations around multilingualism, to name a few. While the title mostly appeals to a particular field of work ...


Secrets Of The Save File: Using Connexion And Microsoft Access For Efficient Batch Cataloging Projects, Rebecca B. French 2020 James Madison University

Secrets Of The Save File: Using Connexion And Microsoft Access For Efficient Batch Cataloging Projects, Rebecca B. French

Libraries

Have you ever wished you could limit your Connexion batch search results to the one OCLC record with the most holdings? Or hoped for a way to confidently match those search results to existing metadata from your ILS without handling each record one by one? These tasks and more are all possible by working directly with the Microsoft Access database underlying Connexion's local save file. In this presentation, I will share how our library used this functionality in a workflow for efficiently cataloging a gift collection of jazz LPs. I will describe features of the local save file database ...

Small Steps Make Giant Leaps: An Incremental Approach To Technical Services Workflow Automation, Rebecca B. French 2020 James Madison University

Small Steps Make Giant Leaps: An Incremental Approach To Technical Services Workflow Automation, Rebecca B. French

Libraries

James Madison University Libraries' workflow for distributing its Special Collections finding aids to various discovery platforms historically involved a significant amount of manual data entry and hand-encoding. Through a series of small steps, we have been gradually improving this process by automating select tasks. I will share different iterations of our workflow, the automated solutions we've put into place, and the tools and technologies used, including XSLTs, APIs, and Spaceport, a custom Python app. As evidenced through the efficiencies, staff excitement, and other benefits we've observed, automation has transformed a previously tedious process while also facilitating the completion ...


Apps For Actionable Workflows: Tools To Stay In The Loop And On Top Of Tasks, Rachel S. Evans 2020 University of Georgia School of Law

Apps For Actionable Workflows: Tools To Stay In The Loop And On Top Of Tasks, Rachel S. Evans

Presentations

No matter what member of the team you are or what type of library you are in - be it electronic resources manager, cataloger, head of acquisitions, ILS or systems administrator, or even repository coordinator - getting things done and meeting goals depends largely on how you communicate with one another and how you handle your time. Meeting goals and deadlines on both big and small projects in addition to your personal tasks can be achieved less painfully by making effective use of a few on point tools. This session will use the presenter's preferred platforms to show specific examples of ...

The Zine Union Catalog, Lauren S. Kehoe, Jenna Freedman 2020 The Graduate Center, City University of New York

The Zine Union Catalog, Lauren S. Kehoe, Jenna Freedman

All Dissertations, Theses, and Capstone Projects

Lauren Kehoe and Jenna Freedman have been working on the Zine Union Catalog, aka ZineCat or ZUC, since their Introduction to Digital Humanities course in Spring, 2017: MALS 75500, Digital Humanities Methods and Practices. ZineCat is the home of a union catalog dedicated to zines. A union catalog is a resource where libraries and other cultural institutions that collect materials can share cataloging and holdings information from their individual collections. The most familiar union catalog is probably WorldCat which is used to locate books, journals, CDs, DVDs, and other materials in the world’s libraries. ZineCat facilitates researchers' discovery of ...
