ALCTS Cataloging Norms Discussion Group January 20, 2007, 1:30-3:30 p.m. Washington State Convention and Trade Center, Room 615 TOPIC: How Catalogers and System Developers Work Creatively with Metadata The meeting will begin with "Institutional Repository one click MARC record generation," presented by Terry Reese (Digital Production Unit Head, Oregon State University Libraries) who will share his timesaving one click MARC record generation approach for harvesting metadata from DSpace into MARC for inclusion in OCLC and OSU's integrated library system. Next, Lai-Ying Hsiung (Interim Head of Technical Services, University of California, Santa Cruz) will describe the differences between record and object identifiers, and their increasing relevance as match points or linking devices for searching, record loading, record merging, report generation, global updates, FRBR implementation and data sources cross-matching in her presentation "What's in a number? Its increasing relevance in the online environment." The final presentation will be Casey Bisson's (System Developer, Information Technologist, Plymouth State University) "Metadata and faceted searching: an implementation report based on WPopac" in which he will 1) discuss the lessons learned from working with metadata in WPopac, an open-source web OPAC that he created, and 2) address how current cataloging practice has served the new means of representing cataloging data and questions the new technology poses for the evolution of metadata. A question and answer session will follow the presentations.
