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.
