The Cataloging Norms Interest Group will meet in Moscone Convention 
Center 122(N), 10:30-11:30 AM, on Saturday, June 27. The meeting will 
include the following three presentations:

Describing Resources with BIBFRAME at the National Library of Medicine

Nancy J. Fallgren, Metadata Specialist Librarian, National Library of 
Medicine

NLM has been collaborating with George Washington University, University 
of California, Davis, and Zepheira to draft an experimental common, core 
BIBFRAME data model and vocabulary that would be useful for 
bibliographic cataloging and beyond. With the draft at a comfortable 
level of completeness, we are using that BIBFRAME model in further 
experiments to convert existing description from a variety of XML schema 
and to catalog new bibliographic materials using RDA rules. Our 
experiment with conversion of legacy description revolves around 
resources at NLM that are by or about Nobel Prize winning scientist 
Marshall W. Nirenberg. The new cataloging of bibliographic materials is 
focused on generating description for Works and Instances/Manifestations.

This presentation will discuss the status of NLM’s practical 
experimentation using BIBFRAME for resource description, including some 
examples, and discussion of tools we are using and/or planning to use.

Skill Sets for Technical Services Staff

Roman S. Panchyshyn, Assistant Professor, Kent State University

As the nature of the work in technical services changes, technical 
services managers and library administrators need to evaluate and 
project what type of skill sets must be added or changed to meet the 
needs of future projects and workflows. My presentation will identify 
eight areas of competence, or skill sets, which will need to be present 
in technical services for the department to remain viable during the 
period of transition from current cataloging practices to a linked data 
environment. The presentation will be given from a management 
perspective, outlining the need for establishing a training timetable, 
prioritizing skill set training, and justifying the costs and resources 
necessary for training to library administration.

The presentation will be based on my book chapter, recently accepted for 
publication, in the monograph titled: Creating the 21st Century Academic 
Library: Volume 6: Rethinking Technical Services, edited by Bradford Lee 
Eden.

What Can We Do about Our Legacy?

Diane Hillmann, RDA Development Team

Underlying many of the recent conversations about new options for 
description is the fear that we could lose access to our legacy of MARC 
records, or compromise the transition from MARC to RDA sufficiently that 
we lose the value of those records. There are options for bringing that 
data with us as we move ahead, but there will need to be better 
understanding of what those options might be and how to make appropriate 
decisions for individual libraries or consortia for those conversations 
to proceed effectively.

Decisions will need to accommodate current discovery systems, continuing 
needs for ILS systems for acquisitions and circulation, and IT resources 
available to individualize options for particular libraries, etc. The 
notion of pursuing ‘integration’ of MARC and RDA records, using the RDA 
fields brought into MARC, is often brought up, prompted by the early 
decisions of the RDA effort to pursue a ‘middle ground’ option, but 
better understanding of what is really different about RDA has made that 
option less attractive.

The process of making decisions about those options requires that 
catalogers, systems librarians and administrators understand the 
implication of these decisions, rather than follow the herd towards a 
common decision—assuming that any common path could be defined and made 
credible.

Diane Hillmann, for many years a cataloger and tech services manager, 
and now a member of the RDA Development Team, will discuss the issues 
around these decisions, and suggest possible paths for librarians.
