Guide... This advice document aims to provide a comprehensive look at the various choices the developer of multimedia collections has in terms of metadata standards and the principles behind using them. It attempts to provide a synopsis of general metadata trends, a) in usage for audio, moving and still image format types; b) in specific areas of practice such as museums, archives, libraries and education; and, c) in various activities and tasks such as preservation, interoperability and resource discovery. For an overview of the whole series of papers, and an introduction to the metadata issues discussed here, please see An Introduction to Metadata. Contents Why use existing standards? While you could choose to make up your own metadata schemas and vocabularies from scratch, for various reasons it is generally preferable to use or adapt existing standards. What exactly do we mean by 'standards'? The word 'standard' can be problematic, since people use this term in different ways. Dublin Core

Metadata Principles and Practicalities I. Introduction The rapid changes in the means of information access occasioned by the emergence of the World Wide Web have spawned an upheaval in the means of describing and managing information resources. Metadata is a primary tool in this work, and an important link in the value chain of knowledge economies. The authors hope to make explicit the strong foundations of agreement shared by two prominent metadata Initiatives: the Dublin Core Metadata Initiative (DCMI) and the Institute for Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) Learning Object Metadata (LOM) Working Group. The ideas in this paper are divided into two categories. II. The paragraphs in the Principles section set out general truths the authors believe provide a guiding framework for the development of practical solutions for semantic and machine interoperability in any domain using any set of metadata standards. A. Children think nothing of mixing cowboy themes and pirate themes and undersea exploration themes. B. C.
Understanding MARC Bibliographic: Machine-Readable Cataloging Understanding MARC Bibliographic: Machine-Readable Cataloging Written by Betty Furrie in conjunction with the Data Base Development Department of The Follett Software Company Eighth edition reviewed and edited by the Network Development and MARC Standards Office, Library of Congress Published by the Network Development and MARC Standards Office, Library of Congress Available from: Copyright ©2009 The Library of Congress, except within the U.S.A. Understanding MARC Bibliographic was a copyrighted work originally published by the Follett Software Co. in 1988. Cataloging 101: May/June 2008 Sandra Q. Williams This is the final column of the Cataloging 101 series by Sandra Q. Williams. Cataloging Made (Almost) Easy Items find their way into the media center in many ways besides the traditional standard ordering process from vendors. CIP: One Source of Cataloging Records: This fifth column will discuss some of the ways media specialists can find cataloging information that has already been prepared for many of these uncataloged resources. Catalogers at the Library of Congress prepare CIP records when the book is still in its galley stage. Subject Heading Consistency The media specialist will need to consult the Sears List of Subject Headings (Miller, 2004) to find subject headings consistent with ones already in the local catalog. MARC formatting Now that the correct bibliographic information has been obtained for this item, the library media specialist must input the data into the automated catalog. Copy v.

Library Catalog - Main Search Menu Search for books, periodicals, electronic resources and other items in OhioLINK member libraries. Advanced search Keyword searches allow you to find words and phrases in author names, titles, subjects, notes, and other fields. Keyword searching permits Boolean searching, adjacency and proximity searching, and several truncation options. Search examples OhioLINK also provides links to the library catalogs of all member libraries. Enter as much of the title as you know, starting with the first word. If you know part of the title but you aren’t sure how it starts, you may want to start with a keyword search. Relator Code and Term List List identifier: marcrelator Arrangement of the List In the Term Sequence, the relator terms are listed alphabetically. A listing by code is provided in a separate Code Sequence list. An entry for a term to which a code has been assigned includes the term followed by the code in brackets, both in boldface. Expert [exp] Use for a person or organization in charge of the description and appraisal of the value of goods, particularly rare items, works of art, etc. UF Appraiser The UF terms are included in the list as references, but are not in boldface. Appraiser USE Expert Entries may also include a note in [brackets] explaining a change in the use of codes. Graphic technician USE Artist [Relator term "Graphic technician" (coded [grt]) used before March 1988 only.] Abridger [abr] A person, family, or organization contributing to a resource by shortening or condensing the original work but leaving the nature and content of the original work substantially unchanged. Actor [act] Adapter [adp] Bowdlerizer
Keeping Dublin Core Simple: Cross-Domain Discovery or Resource Description? 1 Order Making in the Internet Commons Reality is messy. Individuals perceive or define objects differently. Objects may change over time, morphing into new versions of their former selves or into things altogether different. The pre-digital library within which the Catalog and its standards evolved was relatively self-contained and controlled. Alongside the development of such automated methods, there is increasing interest in metadata as a means of imposing pre-defined order on Web content. Metadata is not monolithic. Multiple descriptive views imply a modular approach to metadata. This paper examines the evolution and scope of the Dublin Core from this perspective of metadata modularization. At the time of writing, the Dublin Core Metadata Initiative (DCMI) has clarified its commitment to the simple approach. There remains a compelling need for simple, "pidgin" metadata.
