Facilitating Greater Access To Etds Through Contentdm, Rachel Howard, Tyler Goldberg 2010 University of Louisville

Facilitating Greater Access To Etds Through Contentdm, Rachel Howard, Tyler Goldberg

Rachel I. Howard

Bound theses and dissertations (BTDs) have increasingly been supplemented or replaced by electronic theses and dissertations (ETDs). Since 2002, the University of Louisville Libraries have been building a collection of born-digital and digitized ETDs in order to provide free worldwide access to these titles, and to enable graduate
students to include digital media in their works. In 2009 the Libraries migrated the ETD collection from a homegrown database to CONTENTdm, in order to allow for full-text searching and simultaneous searching of other electronic collections. This article will discuss the cataloging workflows for the different phases of the project, including the ...


The Streaming Guide To Cataloging Remote Access Multimedia: An Open Access Virtual Manual, Marielle Veve 2010 University of North Florida

The Streaming Guide To Cataloging Remote Access Multimedia: An Open Access Virtual Manual, Marielle Veve

Marielle Veve

     In recent years, the acquisition of remote access multimedia has become the trend in many libraries.  This type of multimedia consists of podcasts, streaming media, e-books, and games. Cataloging these items has become increasingly difficult as little or no information exists to help catalogers handle the complexities of remote access multimedia formats. The few available guides rely on text-only explanations—not the ideal way to visualize and understand complex multimedia situations.
     To address this important gap, the Streaming Guide to Cataloging Remote Access Multimedia was created. This virtual, freely accessible, peer-reviewed guide effectively explains how to handle complex cataloging situations ...

Strategic Planning For Sustaining User-Generated Content In Digital Collections, Cory K. Lampert, Su Kim Chung

Library Faculty Presentations

• Should there be an overarching philosophy for user-generated content in the organization?

• Who in the management or leadership determines this philosophy or guides the organization to come up with a shared vision?

•What technical considerations are there for these projects? Are there staff that need to be consulted for software choices and technical customization?

•Is there are point person for the project and does this person have the authority and appropriate expertise to moderate content and respond to user’s contributions?

•Should there be appropriate guidelines for communicating an institutions’ brand or message in these new venues?

•And ultimately, who ...

Guide To Cataloging Slotmusic Based On Aacr2 Chapters 6 And 9, Marcia Barrett, Jim Alberts, Cyrus Ford Zarganj, Steve Henry, Michi Hoban, Jay Weitz

Library Faculty Publications

In September 2008 SanDisk announced it would begin making music available for purchase on its microSD flash memory card format.1 The audio files on a slotMusic card are in MP3 format and are offered free of any digital rights management controls. In addition to containing an "album's" worth of music (i.e., a slotMusic release generally corresponds to a collection of music issued on other formats such as compact disc), a typical slotMusic card may come pre-loaded with images, video, text, MIDI files, etc. Each card contains 1 GB of memory (well more than what is required for ...


Interactive Online Forms, Ashley Nelson-Hornstein 2010 Syracuse University

Interactive Online Forms, Ashley Nelson-Hornstein

Syracuse University Honors Program Capstone Projects

The use of interactive online forms can improve the efficiency of data management processes in any organization, particularly ones that rely on the collection of large amounts of data. The work of my capstone project sought to leverage technologies available in the open source community to improve the work-flow of one such organization, the Honors program at Syracuse University. As a result, I focused on transforming the often used paper civic engagement form into an autonomous electronic process. By appropriately following the stages of the systems development life cycle, a systematic approach that focused on planning and security conscious execution ...

Digitalcommons@Ilr: Institutional Repository Marketing And Development At The Catherwood Library, Ilr School, Cornell University, Mary J. Newhart, Suzanne A. Cohen, James D. Delrosso

Articles and Chapters

[Excerpt] DigitalCommons@ILR is a multipurpose institutional repository (IR) for scholarship produced by the faculty in the Industrial and Labor Relations School (ILR) at Cornell University. Although it shares this purpose with many IRs, DigitalCommons@ILR sets itself apart in a number of ways. First, it was designed to function not only as a collection of faculty scholarly works but also as a subject-based IR for workplace-related information. Furthermore, unlike many IRs, it has been successfully integrated into the organization, receiving support from the school's administration and strong uptake from the faculty. Finally, it has routinely pushed the accepted ...


Archival Information Retrieval: Searching For Evidence In The Relationships Between Documents, Kimberly D. Anderson 2010 Iowa State University

Archival Information Retrieval: Searching For Evidence In The Relationships Between Documents, Kimberly D. Anderson

Kimberly D. Anderson

Although archivists have engaged in analog information retrieval (IR) for many decades, automated archival IR is relatively unexamined in either IR or archival literature. The strength of primary source materials lies in their ability to support inference and deduction through the provision of evidence, through both content and context of documents. The hierarchical and spatial structures of archival records may be leveraged in the search for retrieving this kind of relational evidence. The bulk of work done on archival IR has used term matching as the means of retrieval. This is inadequate for research that is concerned with the relationships ...


[Rd] Prism Library: Patient Registry Item Specifications And Metadata For Rare Diseases, Rachel L. Richesson, Denise Shereff, James E. Andrews 2010 University of South Florida

[Rd] Prism Library: Patient Registry Item Specifications And Metadata For Rare Diseases, Rachel L. Richesson, Denise Shereff, James E. Andrews

School of Information Faculty Publications

Patient registries are important for understanding the causes and origins of rare diseases and estimating their impact; and they may prove critical developing new diagnostics and therapeutics. This paper introduces the [RD] PRISM resource , an NIH-funded project to develop a library of standardized question and answer sets to support rare disease research. The paper presents a project case-driven plan for creating a new registry using questions from an existing related registry, revising and expanding an existing registry, and showing interoperability of data collected from different registries and data sources. Each of the use cases involves the retrieval of indexed questions ...


Evolving In Collaboration: Electronic Thesis And Dissertation Workflows In North Carolina, Mary G. Early, Anne Marie Taber 2010 University of North Carolina at Greensboro

Evolving In Collaboration: Electronic Thesis And Dissertation Workflows In North Carolina, Mary G. Early, Anne Marie Taber

Collaborative Librarianship

Thirty-seven colleges and universities in North Carolina offer advanced degrees, and most require a thesis or dissertation. The websites of thirteen (35%) indicate they accept or require electronic submission of dissertations and/or theses (ETD). How do these institutions handle the interdepartmental communication and collaboration needs of ETD programs? To begin answering this question, this study examines current practices among ETD administrators in North Carolina and in current national literature, paying special attention to communication, collaboration, workflows, and divisions of labor. The literature review surveys current (since 2003) library and higher education articles on topics related to collaboration, workflows, and ...

A New Way To Manage Uncataloged Materials: A Case Study From Moving The University Of Nevada, Reno’S Federal Depository Collection, Amalia Beisler, Patrick P. Ragains 2010 University of Nevada, Reno

A New Way To Manage Uncataloged Materials: A Case Study From Moving The University Of Nevada, Reno’S Federal Depository Collection, Amalia Beisler, Patrick P. Ragains

Collaborative Librarianship

In 2008, the University of Nevada, Reno Library moved into a new building, the Mathewson-IGT Knowledge Center. As part of this move, approximately half of the library’s print collections were moved into the building’s automated storage and retrieval system; a substantial portion of these materials were federal depository materials. This case study describes how cataloging and government documents staff at the University of Nevada, Reno collaborated to achieve intellectual and physical control over a huge, largely uncataloged government documents collection destined for automated storage. More than 9,000 linear feet of uncataloged government documents had to be placed ...


Skos And The Semantic Web: Knowledge Organization, Metadata, And Interoperability, Eric A. Robinson 2010 University of St. Augustine for Health Sciences

Skos And The Semantic Web: Knowledge Organization, Metadata, And Interoperability, Eric A. Robinson

Other Topics

The Simplified Knowledge Organization System (SKOS) is a Semantic Web framework, based on the Resource Description Framework (RDF) for thesauri, classification schemes and simple ontologies. It allows for machine-actionable description of the structure of these knowledge organization systems (KOS) and provides an excellent tool for addressing interoperability and vocabulary control problems inherent to the rapidly expanding information environment of the Web. This paper discusses the foundations of the SKOS framework and reviews the literature on a variety of SKOS implementations. The limitations of SKOS that have been revealed through its broad application are addressed with brief attention to the proposed ...

Cataloging Training On Demand: Redefining Instruction Through Self-Contained Online Modules, Marielle Veve 2009 University of North Florida

Cataloging Training On Demand: Redefining Instruction Through Self-Contained Online Modules, Marielle Veve

Marielle Veve


With continuing changes in the cataloging field and increasing staff turnover, many cataloging departments must train newcomers and update staff on current trends too frequently. The constant demand for internal training can be difficult to satisfy, as valuable knowledge is lost when trainers leave and remaining catalogers struggle to keep up with increasing workloads and tenure requirements. Common face-to-face training approaches, such as direct instruction and “shadowing,” can take a toll on staff who already lack time to perform other duties.

 The following poster session discusses an innovative approach to this need for constant training by creating a series of ...
