Linked Data's Many Varieties

Tuesday, 18 March 2014 1:00pm

 

For the last two years, we've been hearing a lot of talk about converting library metadata to linked data. But how? Library of Congress is working on BIBFRAME, a linked data format that is designed to carry all the data in the many millions of existing MARC records. OCLC is using schema.org, a microdata format, to enhance the Web displays of WorldCat records. Dublin Core can be written in RDF; is that linked data?

In this webinar, Debra Shapiro, UW-Madison SLIS instructor, will help you untangle the acronyms, and pick your favorite flavor of linked data.

Migrating To A New ILS

Wednesday, 5 March 2014 11:00am

Your library's out-of-date ILS is running on an old server that needs to be retired. You need to upgrade the ILS, but you don't know where to start.

Let me show you how to plan and execute this migration successfully based on how my library did it and the assistance I have provided to numerous other small libraries during their ILS migrations. I will cover the Selection, Preparation, Migration and Follow-up that has proven to be successful for my library and many others when migrating to a new ILS.

Authority Control in the Library Catalog

Wednesday, 12 February 2014 10:00am

 

Authority control has been an integral part of library catalogs since the inception of the modern library. As library catalogs are being revolutionized in their construction and use, the question is often asked if it is still important. How does authority control benefit users of the catalog? What data is important to include? How do authorized terms and authority records improve searching in the catalog? How has RDA impacted authority control? How are libraries managing all the changes (including terms, the structure of authority records, and cataloging format)? Bring your thoughts and experiences and join us for a lively discussion on these questions and more as we explore the present and future of authority control.
