Description :

On Choosing A Preservation File Format for Video: “TIFFs are too big to store”, or “We Used JPEGs and Nobody Died”

George Blood, President
What librarian hasn’t struggled with storage capacity? Ever larger library buildings and ever higher data densities have not solved the fundament problem in the cultural heritage field: Information takes up space. Care in acquisition and prudent deaccessioning help, but stuff keeps coming. While storage becomes more efficient and cheaper every day, the fact that it will be easy to store digital video in 20 years doesn’t help us today – in 20 years most legacy video formats will be inaccessible as machines die of old age. What then do we do now? If you cannot afford 10-bit uncompressed files (at a whopping 100GB per hour), and you lack the IT infrastructure to support JPEG2000/MXF, how are you to preserve video today. This talk will explore some of the considerations on the slippery slope of choosing a compressed format for storing moving image collections.

What goes where? Bringing a new repository online at the Ohio State University Libraries

Emily Shaw, Head, Preservation and Reformatting
Like most libraries, the Ohio State University Libraries did not enter the digital library sphere with clear policies and a unified, interoperable infrastructure for managing all of our digital collections. The Libraries has a long-standing commitment to making our unique collections accessible to the campus and global communities and maintains an expertly managed and curated Institutional Repository (the Knowledge Bank). But for more than a decade, OSU’s digital collections developed in response to the requirements of specific projects. Thus, for the past several years, the OSU Libraries has been investing heavily in the planning and development of a robust repository infrastructure to enhance access, management and preservation of digital collections of all types. This presentation will give an overview of our planning process and share some of the workflow documentation currently under development.

Letting somebody else do it.

Frances Harrell, Preservation Specialist
In 2014 The Jamaica Plain Tuesday Club (JPTC), an all-volunteer history and culture organization in Boston, had a selection of their archives digitized by the Boston Public Library, the images transferred to the Digital Commonwealth preservation repository, and the associated metadata aggregated by the Digital Public Library of America. As this model of aggregation grows through the influence of the DPLA, small organizations like this with digital collections will increasingly depend on their colleagues at larger institutions to shoulder the burden of long-term preservation. Using the JPTC as a case study, this talk will take the perspective of the small organizations who want to see their collections increase in reach and impact, and will raise some of the difficult questions the preservation field faces in attempting to steward the digital heritage of these limited-resource compatriots.

Metadata Interest Group Discussion/Interest group Moscone Convention Center
2009 (W)
Description :

The meeting will include three presentations and be followed by a business meeting.

Ivey Glendon from the University of Virginia Library will present "We’ve gone MAD: launching a Metadata Analysis & Design unit at the University of Virginia Library"

At the University of Virginia Library, a library-wide re-organization of departments and services has provided the opportunity to evaluate activity focused on description and discovery of library materials, as well as metadata consultation services in the Library and University.
This presentation will focus on how the U.Va. Library has re-imagined metadata services functions to give rise to a new unit: Metadata Analysis & Design (MAD). MAD, one of three new metadata units in the Library, is staffed by five metadata specialists with diverse areas of interest from across the former organization. The creation of this unit has required significant training for staff (including workshops and bootcamps) to ensure a consistent level of understanding of both MARC and non-MARC metadata principles and practices, a multi-part “orientation to systems” focusing on metadata creation and design across systems (ILS, ArchivesSpace, Avalon, and various institutional repositories), and significant overlap with new Library units such as the new Digital Content Management & Dissemination unit. Though emergent, the new MAD unit has enabled metadata specialists to respond more holistically to requests for expertise from both colleagues inside the library and researchers within the University.

Lee Richardson from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill Health Sciences Library will present "Using Metadata Skills for a Course Inventory"

Metadata and information organization activities in libraries often focus on digital projects, institutional repositories and library catalogs. This presentation will report on a project that applies skills developed from these traditional activities to something a little different. I will talk about a project to help the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill Health Affairs schools create a system to gather and organize information about interprofessional education courses and learning activities. Previous experiences in evaluating taxonomies, applying controlled vocabularies, creating data dictionaries, and understanding when to select from valid data verses using free text all informed better discernment of possible problems and solutions. While this project is still in early stages of development, I will share what’s been done so far, mistakes made, lessons learned and what comes next.

Eric Hellman, founder of UnGlue.it, will present "Metadata for Project Gutenberg Using GitHub"

GITenberg is a distributed project working to improve Project Gutenberg texts using the online collaboration and version control tools at GitHub. We received a prototype grant from the Knight Foundation to work on improving the metadata in Project Gutenberg for use by libraries.

Cataloging and Classification Research Interest Group Discussion/Interest group Moscone Convention Center
120 (N)
Description :

In this year's meeting, the CaMMS Cataloging and Classification Research Interest Group offers two presentations and discussions of cataloging-related research and projects.

In this session we will be looking at RDA outside of its usual context. In our first presentation we will look at RDA in relationship to non-MARC metadata and cataloging standards such as Dublin Core and MODS, and in the second, we will consider LC-PCC’s interpretation of RDA’s instructions on recording gender (RDA 9.7) through the lens of feminist and queer theory.

"Accommodating RDA in CONTENTdm and Islandora, or, Accommodating RDA in Content and Digital Asset Management Systems," presented by Sai Deng, Metadata Librarian and Associate Librarian, University of Central Florida
The Resource Description and Access (RDA) standard has been widely implemented in integrated library systems and its application with MARC has long been discussed, but its applicability in content and digital asset management systems and with non-MARC standards hasn't been much addressed. The national RDA non-MARC tests found that it is not easy to evaluate RDA "without an application available to aptly manage and display the data," however, to accommodate RDA in existing content and digital asset management systems still remains an issue. This presentation will address how RDA has been applied in cataloging and migrating digital materials in CONTENTdm and Islandora at the University of Central Florida Libraries. It will also look at using RDA with other cataloging and metadata standards such as Dublin Core (DC), Metadata Object Description Schema (MODS) and Describing Archives: A Content Standard (DACS) to catalog digital materials including digitized serials and monographs.

“Queering the LCNAF : on recording gender in name authority files,” presented by Amber Billey, Catalog/Metadata Librarian, University of Vermont and Emily Drabinski, Coordinator of Library Instruction, Long Island University
Library of Congress (LC) and the Program for Cooperative Cataloging (PCC) interpretation of Resource Description and Access (RDA) rule 9.7 regarding gender when identifying persons reinforces regressive conceptions of gender identity. The rule instructs catalogers to record gender when identifying persons, and although RDA gives catalogers the flexibility to record more than two gender labels, LC limits Name Authority Cooperative Program (NACO) catalogers to a binary label: male, female, or not known. In this presentation, the presenters will expand on their award winning article, (2014) What's Gender Got to Do with It? A Critique of RDA 9.7, Cataloging & Classification Quarterly, 52:4, 412-421, DOI: 10.1080/01639374.2014.882465. The presenters will briefly explore the objections raised by feminist and queer theory to the current naming rule and offer a range of strategies for practically challenging gender as a descriptive attribute for personal names. At the local level, catalogers should consider whether gender ought to be coded at all. At the policy level, catalogers can and should challenge rules that have the potential to misrepresent creator identities and cause damaging inaccuracies in name authority files.
