Enhancing Access to Pacific-Language Resources at the University of Hawaii at Manoa and in OCLC WorldCat  / Michael Chopey, Catalog Librarian, University of Hawaii at Manoa Libraries


With funding from an NEH grant, UHM’s Cataloging Department and Pacific Collection are working collaboratively to enhance more than 10,000 bibliographic records in our local Voyager catalog and in OCLC Worldcat, primarily with Ethnologue (ISO 639-3) language codes, which in many cases are much more specific than the collective MARC language code (ISO 639-2) that the cataloging community normally uses. This presentation will outline the planning, workflow, benefits, and future directions of this project, including how the metadata created for this project will be reused and made available outside of the MARC catalog environment, and a comprehensive crosswalk of codes and languages names using linked open data from the Library of Congress's linked data identity server ( and the Open Language Archives Community (


Bridging the Gap between Metadata Librarians and Art Conservators / Peggy Griesinger, Metadata & Cataloging Librarian George Mason University Libraries


This talk will discuss the challenges and benefits of collaborating with art conservation professionals at the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) to design a metadata profile for the digital conservation of their audiovisual-based artworks. Throughout this project in my role as metadata librarian, I was required to quickly familiarize myself with specialized topics in art conservation and audiovisual preservation, two areas with which I had very little prior experience, in order to design an accurate metadata profile for the project. I also needed to translate specialized metadata concepts into a form that non-LIS professionals, such as conservators and museum administrators, could understand. This talk will discuss the process of quickly gaining low-level expertise in unfamiliar domains as well as how to impart knowledge of complex metadata concepts (including XML, controlled vocabularies, and metadata standards) in a form that is understandable and practically useful to non-LIS professionals.


Where's the data? / Andrea Payant, Data Management Cataloger,  Betty Rozum, Data Services Coordinator & Undergraduate Research Librarian, Liz Woolcott, Head of Cataloging and Metadata Services, Utah State University


At Utah State University, a pilot project is under development to evaluate the benefits of tracking data sets and faculty publications using the online catalog and the Library’s institutional repository. With federal mandates to make publications and data open, universities look for solutions to track compliance.  At Utah State University, the Sponsored Programs Office follows up with researchers to determine where data has been or will be deposited, per the terms of their grant.  Interested in making this publicly discoverable, the Library, Sponsored Programs, and Research Office are working together to pilot a project that enables the creation of publicly accessible MARC and Dublin Core records for data deposited by USU faculty. This project aims to make data sets, as well as publications, visible in research portals such as WorldCat, as well as through Google searches.  This presentation will describe the project and anticipated benefits, as well as outline the roles of the cataloging staff and data librarian, and the involvement of the Research Office.
