One of the ongoing myths about RDA is that it’s just a set of instructions and rules for the creation and maintenance of bibliographic metadata, regardless of data model. This has never been entirely accurate, since the RDA instructions explicitly reference RDA’s FRBR-based metadata model, which was significantly modified by BibFrame. But the notion of […]

In my post last week, I mentioned a paper that Gordon Dunsire, Jon Phipps and I had written for the IFLA Satellite Meeting in Paris last month “Linked Data in Libraries: Let’s make it happen!” (note the videos!). I wanted to talk about the paper and why we wrote it, but I’m not just going […]

A couple of weeks ago I made a short presentation at a linked data session at the American Association of Law Libraries (AALL). Many of the audience members were people I’ve known since I was a baby librarian (this is the group where I started my career as a presenter, and they invite me back […]

Some of you have already seen the live feed or the recordings for last week’s Code4Lib conference. If you have, you might already know that I was the keynote speaker for that conference. (The archive page is here, my part is about 90 minutes into session 1; slides are available too). The whole story of […]

Starting the end of the month, ALA TechSource is sponsoring a new webinar series about RDA, this one not entirely about the guidelines. It’s called Using RDA: Moving into the Metadata Future and ‘stars’ Karen Coyle, Chris Oliver and moi (in that order), talking about the fullness of the potential that RDA represents for libraries.

One of the most interesting programs at ALA Annual that I was involved with was the Linked Data grassroots program. Here’s the blurb: From Legacy Data to Linked Data: Preparing Libraries for Web 3.0. “How can library cataloging data be transformed to function within ‘Web 3.0’ and be understood by non-library web applications? Speakers from […]

ALA Annual in Chicago has been a blur—I did three presentations (which I hope to talk about and link to slides as time permits). But one issue has been rolling over in my mind ever since I blurted something about it at my first presentation on Friday of Annual, when I was last up on […]

Some of you may know that a few years ago (2005 actually, as I look at my files) I worked with the ALCTS Continuing Education group to set up a “Metadata Standards and Applications” workshop, as part of the series of workshops they were developing with LC funding. At the time, I was intrigued by […]

Yesterday I did a long program for NELINET, entitled “Trepidation or Anticipation?: The Future of Cataloging and Catalogers.” This topic has been a theme of mine for some time, and I’d been invited to do this program after doing a similar, though shorter, one at the Massachusetts Library Association in the spring. The response to […]
