Roy Tennant
Ground Truthing MARC
"Ground truthing" is the verification of remote sensing data by direct observation. Over the last few years, OCLC Research has been doing the equivalent for MARC, by exposing exactly how various fields and subfields have been used by catalogers around the world and over time. Using the massive WorldCat database and modern cluster computing techniques, data is extracted, summarized, and reported, to better inform efforts to move this data into new formats and uses.

Roy Tennant is a Senior Program Officer with OCLC Research.

Terry Reese
MarcEdit Tools for Linked Data
Terry Reese will discuss how catalogers can track BIBFRAME developments and participate locally by beginning to add linked data concepts into their MARC data. Mr. Reese will show how to utilize MarcEdit's MARCNext Toolset or the MarcEdit LibHub plugin.

Terry Reese is the Head of Digital Initiatives at The Ohio State University and the developer of MarcEdit.

Carl Stahmer
A BIBFLOW Project Update
BIBFLOW is a two-year project of the UC Davis University Library and Zepheira, funded by IMLS. Its official title is “Reinventing Cataloging: Models for the Future of Library Operations” and it is investigating the future of library technical services, i.e., cataloging and related workflows, in light of modern technology infrastructure such as the Web and new data models and formats such as Resource Description and Access (RDA) and BIBFRAME, the new encoding and exchange format in development by the Library of Congress.

Carl Stahmer is the Director of Digital Scholarship at the University Library, University of California, Davis

Michelle Jeske
The Libhub initiative and Denver Public Library - Leading Libraries to the Web!
The Libhub Initiative aims to raise the visibility of Libraries on the Web by actively exploring the promise of BIBFRAME and Linked Data. Denver Public Library joined the Libhub Initiative as a Founding Partner and has served as its pioneer institution. Ms. Jeske will share DPL’s experience in exploring and implementing linked data and making DPL’s entire catalog available on the web!

Michelle Jeske is the City Librarian of Denver.

Preservation Metadata Interest Group Discussion/Interest group Moscone Convention Center
2008 (W)
Description :

Please join us for the ALCTS PARS Preservation Metadata Interest Group Meeting at ALA Annual 2015 in San Francisco. Our program will begin with a short business meeting and the election of an incoming co-chair. The session will focus on pragmatic implementations of preservation metadata for two tricky content types, web archives and digital media art objects.

Don't WARC Away: Preservation Metadata for Web Archives
Maria LaCalle, Web Archivist, Internet Archive
Jefferson Bailey, Director of Web Archiving Programs, Internet Archive

As more institutions include web archives in their digital collections, creating preservation metadata to support the long term stewardship of these files is a newly emerging challenge. Archive-It, a web archiving service of the Internet Archive, works with over 360 partner institutions across the globe, providing tools for harvesting, managing, and accessing archived web content. This talk will explore how Archive-It partners incorporate preservation metadata into their web archiving programs, the development of tools and workflows to support this work, and the unique challenges web archives present to digital preservation metadata.

In the Service of Art: Metadata for Preservation of Digital Artworks
Jason Kovari, Head of Metadata Services, Cornell University

In February 2013, the Rose Goldsen Archive of New Media Art, part of Cornell University Library’s Division of Rare and Manuscript Collections, received a $300,000 grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities to develop PAFDAO (Preservation and Access Frameworks for Complex Digital Media Art Objects). PAFDAO’s test collection includes more than 300 interactive born-digital artworks created for CD-ROM, DVD-ROM, and web distribution, many of which date back to the early 1990s. Though vitally important to understanding the development of media art and aesthetics over the past two decades, these materials are at serious risk of degradation and are unreadable without obsolete computers and software. This talk will reference the larger workflow of the project and how metadata decisions were made in order to ensure long-term preservation and use of these complex digital media art objects, most of which contain many elaborate interdependencies.

3:00pm - 4:00pm
Residency Interest Group Meeting Discussion/Interest group Marriott Marquis San Francisco
Pacific Suite H
Description :

ALA Kitchen Table Conversations Discussion/Interest group Marriott Marquis San Francisco
Walnut
Description :

We asked for your feedback, and we got it! ALA is influential and great for networking -- but we can also be too complex, sometimes bureaucratic, and we send a lot of email. Well, we heard you loud and clear, and we are working on it. Help us stay on track. Through a series of “kitchen table conversations” at the 2015 Annual Conference, attendees will gather to dig deeper into the ALA member experience. Topics may include joining and renewing, reducing email “chatter,” and making sure you get the information that matters most to you. You do the talking; we’ll be there to listen, learn, and then act. Please participate in the conversation and help us shape a new ALA together.

Faceted Subject Access Interest Group Discussion/Interest group Marriott Marquis San Francisco
Yerba Buena Salon 05
Description :

In San Francisco the focus is on FAST (Faceted Application of Subject Terminology) with a lively session of lightning talks showcasing innovative uses of and interesting issues with FAST headings in archival, repository, and catalog settings.

Speeding up Archival Description with FAST
Mackenzie Brooks, Washington and Lee University

This lightning talk will outline the experience of batch-loading FAST headings into ArchivesSpace to speed up archival description and reduce cataloging backlog. At our small liberal arts university library, catalogers and Special Collections staff frequently fell behind in processing while trying to unite their distinct description priorities. This presentation will briefly address technical implementation options and staff training strategies.

“Never the Time and the Place and the Topic All Together!”: Conceptualizing and Creating Chronological, Event, and Geographic Faceted Headings in an Archival-Management System
Catherine Oliver, Northern Michigan University

In 2014, the Central Upper Peninsula and Northern Michigan University Archives began transitioning to the ArchivesSpace archival-management system. The Archives has traditionally used the Library of Congress Subject Headings vocabulary to provide controlled subject access to its collections. We have begun faceting our LCSH for use in ArchivesSpace, but have run into some issues with managing our chronological, event, and geographical headings. This talk will give an overview of our preliminary draft of best practices and outline our proposed survey of archives users (to be carried out in the fall of 2015).

Implementing FAST in an Institutional Repository
Brian Luna Lucero & Melanie Wacker, Columbia University

Based on past positive experiences, the decision was made to also use FAST in Columbia’s digital repository Academic Commons. This lightning talk will address the unique challenges faced by the Academic Commons team to move a large scale MODS-based repository of over 15,000 items from the very high level ProQuest subject terms to the much more granular FAST headings -- both for new cataloging going forward as well as for the existing records.

FAST Headings in the UNLV Libraries Catalog: A Laissez-Faire Approach!
Carol Ou and Marilyn Vent, University of Nevada, Las Vegas

Like many other libraries, UNLV Libraries sources shelf-ready and other copy-cataloging records from WorldCat for a significant portion of our collection. Traditionally we do very little editing to the majority of these records, so when OCLC began systematically adding FAST headings to WorldCat records, FAST headings naturally began flowing into our local catalog. This presentation will briefly discuss our local approach to managing FAST headings and the display and indexing changes we have made to support FAST headings in our local catalog.

We will also hear an update from Dr. Diane Vizine-Goetz about OCLC’s work with FAST.
