The ALCTS CaMMS Cataloging Norms Interest Group is pleased to announce its
program at the ALA Midwinter conference held in Seattle at the Hyatt
Regency Seattle, Jr. Ballroom West B, 10:30-11:30 am, Saturday, January 26,
2019.

There will be three presentations that are relevant to what catalogers are
dealing with today.  The presentations will be 15 minutes long, and there
will be time for Q&A at the end of the session.


   -

   Lower the Barrier and Be Empowered: Creating and Including Linked Data
   Vocabularies for Digital Collections (Sai (Sophia) Deng, University of
   Central Florida)
   Linked data has been explored and adopted by the library and archive
   community in recent years, but it has remained a relatively high bar to
   implement for most librarians and catalogers in their daily work. To lower
   the barrier, the librarians at the University of Central Florida (UCF)
   Libraries have adopted open source tools and platforms such as OpenRefine
   and Wikidata to their workflows to include linked data for their
   collections in the digital repositories as well as the library catalog.
   This presentation will review digital repositories' capabilities in
   accommodating linked data and show several cases of adding linked data
   vocabularies, such as those from the Library of Congress' authority files
   and the Virtual International Authority File, to the UCF Libraries' digital
   collections. The added linked data are meant to enhance the collections by
   enriching contexts to various entities or fields such as individual and
   corporate authors, thesis advisors, contributors and subjects. OpenRefine
   is used in this process to edit data and reconcile data against external
   vocabularies. In the case of no standard vocabulary is found, Wikidata is
   used to create linked data for local terms so that they can be added to the
   digital collections and shared with the larger community. This presentation
   will also address highlights and challenges of working with linked data,
   such as distinguishing between various terms, searching for sufficient
   information in establishing terms and presenting them in meaningful ways.

   Enhancing Metadata and Improving Discoverability for Digital Collections
   (Dave Van Kleeck, and Chelsea Dinsmore, University of Florida)
   The University of Florida (UF) Digital Collections (UFDC) are an
   actively growing, open access, digital library comprised of over 500,000
   records. In 2017 the University of Florida Libraries engaged in a pilot
   project to examine the efficacy of applying machine assisted indexing as a
   means of improving findability of content in a large scale digital
   collection. By applying controlled vocabularies from a broader selection of
   thesauri and achieving a larger number of relevant subject terms per title,
   we posited that more productive user searching with better and more
   accurate results would be achieved. The enhanced metadata will be added to
   openly available catalog records, including OCLC records, making the
   enhancements available to the majority of North American libraries. As with
   any large scale digital library, a well-known challenge is the varying
   quality and quantity of legacy metadata available for each title. A
   secondary, but critically important goal of the pilot project was to
   develop tools for integrating retrospective metadata clean-up into the
   process of incorporating enhanced subject terms into the metadata record.
   This presentation will provide an overview of the pilot project, an update
   on the progress made to date, and plans for expansion of the project scope.

   Responsibilities & workflows: keeping agile in a rapidly changing
   environment (Tricia Mackenzie and Kimberley Edwards, George Mason
   University)
   Cataloging departments are expected to be more and more nimble, from
   migrating to new systems, to adapting linked data into their daily
   workflows. In 2018 this was reinforced when the George Mason University
   Libraries migrated to Ex Libris' Alma platform, and in the process moved
   from working in a stand-alone environment to a shared catalog with 12 other
   libraries. In this presentation we will discuss cataloging processes and
   workflows developed both internally and at the consortium level, how staff
   duties were adjusted to fit the new environment, and how we used the
   migration as an opportunity for strengthening relationships between the
   cataloging and acquisitions departments.

Thank you and we look forward to seeing you in the session!
