CALL FOR PAPERS
Special Issue of Journal of Library Metadata

“The Functional Future of Bibliographic Control”

Guest Editor: Dr. Shawne D. Miksa, Associate Professor, Dept. of Library and
Information 

The year 2010 was designated as the Year of Cataloging Research and we made
progress on studying the challenges facing metadata and information
organization practices.  However, one year of research is merely a drop in
the bucket. This special issue of the Journal of Library Metadata intends to
address the research and issues as it concerns the functional future of
metadata and information organization.
 
Topics will vary across a range of issues, including historical, practical,
conceptual, educational:
 
•Re-conceptualization of bibliographic control, past and future; historical
analysis of the implementation of AACR1 and AACR2

•Entity-relationship models and visualizing new cataloging workflows, both
conceptual and practical

•How functional requirement models impact information behavior (both user
and information professional) and resource discovery across information
environments

•Bibliographic relationships, bibliographic families; how successfully are
these relationships represented using RDA, etc.

•Re-defining the library catalog system—what are the boundaries of the
catalog, objectives of the catalog;  pros and cons of viewing the library
catalog as a catalog or as new entity altogether
 
•How do user tasks (find, identify, select, obtain, contextualize, justify,
explore/navigate) drive description and encoding of bibliographic data? How
are they supported in the library catalog? What does it actually mean to
support these tasks?

•Authority control in a FRBR-based system; find, identify, contextualize,
and justify; both renewed and new authority control training

•Social tagging and control: the impact on subject analysis, determination,
and representation
 
•Addition of non-traditional data to bibliographic records (e.g., citation
data, reviews, tag clouds, etc) whether embedded or linked

•“mark it and park it” vs. functional requirements as outlined in FRBR,
FRAD, and FRSAD

•Interoperability between library systems, copy cataloging, outsourcing of
records as impacted by choice of type of description (comprehensive,
analytical, or hierarchical) in RDA

•transitioning out of MARC or transitioning MARC? (e.g., see recent
announcement by LC entitled “Transforming our Bibliographic Framework”)

•Diffusion of new tools and resources and concepts (e.g., new metadata
schema, rules, frameworks, and models), within the cataloging community; 
methods of diffusion, rate of adoption and understanding by information
organizational professionals

•RDA Implementation issues, feasibility studies, training issues, usability
studies involving catalogers, reference librarians, and the end-user as they
work on creating and using RDA-based records, etc., across all types of
libraries.

•Increased complexity of cataloging and catalog systems, including increases
in authority control work, subject representation, etc., and its impact on
library administration and operation costs

•Appropriate methodologies for analysis of functionality success or failure

•Functional future and the school library, public library, etc.
 
•Education of information professionals for the functional future

“The Journal of Library Metadata is the exclusive forum for the latest
research, innovations, news, and expert views about all aspects of metadata
applications in libraries and about the role of metadata in information
retrieval. This focused journal comprehensively discusses practical,
applicable information that libraries can effectively use in their own
information discovery environments. Specialized knowledge, the latest
technology, and top research are presented pertaining specifically to
evolving metadata use in libraries.” More information about Journal of
Library Metadata can be found online:
