The LITA-ALCTS CCS Authority Control in the Online Environment Interest 
Group (ACIG) is pleased to present the following program at ALA Annual 
Conference in Chicago:

"XML and Authority Control"
Sunday, June 26, 2005, 1:30-4:30pm
McCormick Place Convention Center, S405

Program Description:
Information traditionally stored in MARC authority records in library 
catalogs is increasingly being used in interesting ways in XML 
environments. This program will look at standards that have emerged to 
facilitate the XML uses of authority data, projects that have begun to 
implement these standards, experimental research being conducted in the 
field, and general issues surrounding the use of controlled vocabularies in 
metadata descriptions.

Speakers:

1. "MADS (Metadata Authority Description Schema), a MODS Companion"
Sally H. McCallum, Chief, Network Development and MARC Standards Office, 
Library of Congress

The LC Network Development and MARC Standards Office has drafted an XML 
schema for an authority element set that may be used to provide metadata 
about agents (people, organizations), events, and terms (topics, 
geographics, genres, etc.). The schema was created to serve as a companion 
to the Metadata Object Description Schema (MODS). This talk will cover the 
motivation for the MODS and MADS schemas and the opportunity for 
coordination. It will explain the characteristics of MADS and the 
relationship of MADS data elements to the MARC Authorities format.

2. "XML for Authorities at NLM: the Groundwork for an Integrated Authority 
File"
Diane Boehr, Head of Cataloging, National Library of Medicine

This presentation will describe NLM's plans for an integrated authority 
file that incorporates headings from their various Web-based projects, how 
their use of an XML DTD for authority records will assist in achieving the 
goals of that project, and how the XML DTD will be used to provide 
authority control for their new Entrez-based catalog.

3. "XML Name Access Control Repository at the Hong Kong University of 
Science & Technology Library"
Louisa Kwok, Head of Cataloging, HKUST Library

This presentation will provide an introduction to the HKUST NAC Repository, 
which uses an XML-based schema to mark up multi-lingual and multi-script 
attributes of name information and is fully integrated with cataloging 
operations in the library's INNOPAC system. Topics to be addressed include 
the concepts of name access control vs. authority control; bibliographic 
identity vs. person model; the use of NAC records to generate authority 
records in different MARC formats; use of the OAI interface to enable other 
agencies to harvest XML metadata, and the ability to pull records from 
other OAI-enabled repositories, such as the OCLC Linked Authority File.

4. "Organic Authorities: XOBIS and the Metamorphosis of Library Data"
Kevin S. Clarke, Digital Projects Programmer, Firestone Library, Princeton 
University

XOBIS, the XML Organic Bibliographic Information Schema, endeavors to 
integrate bibliographic and authority data in a consistent and unified 
structure. By relying on reusable components, the dynamic validation of 
data values, and access-oriented markup, XOBIS hopes to foster the use of 
traditional library metadata in the digital realm.

5. "Web Service Experiments with Authority Control"
Thomas B. Hickey, Chief Scientist, OCLC

Bibliographic authority files can be thought of as registration services. 
This presentation will look at OCLC's research efforts using XML, the Open 
Archives Initiative (OAI) protocol for metadata harvesting, and Extensible 
Repository Resource Locators (ERRoLs) to develop Web services that make 
authority files more accessible and distributed.

6. "Hong Kong Chinese Authority (Name) Project: the HKCAN XML Version"
Joanna Yi-hang Pong, Cataloguing Librarian, Run Run Shaw Library, City 
University of Hong Kong

HKCAN, a cooperative project of seven academic libraries in Hong Kong, has 
developed an XML version of their shared authority file featuring records 
enhanced with Chinese characters. This presentation will highlight some of 
the advantages and difficulties they encountered in moving to an XML 
platform, the experiences of their trial users, and their initiative to 
develop a one-stop search platform that allows users to access the 
authority files of HKCAN, the National Library of China, the Taiwan 
National Central Library, and the Library of Congress.

============================

Following the program, ACIG will conduct its regular business meeting, to 
end no later than 5:30pm. The business meeting is open to all; anyone 
interested in becoming involved in the interest group is encouraged to 
attend! For more information on ACIG, see our website:
