Catalog 3.0Just in case BIBFRAME flops:

We’ll focus on tools and skills that can be applied in any library metadata and information access scenario that takes advantage of Semantic Web technologies

Thomas Meehan, “Beyond MARC: MARC, linked data, and Bibframe,” http://www.slideshare.net/orangeaurochs/marcld2013

Why BIBFRAME?Because interoperability.

The BIBFRAME CatalogAn Introduction

BIBFRAMEModel:

• Creative Work

• Instance

• Authority

• Annotation

Vocabulary:

The catalog is extensibleAnnotation class facilitates access to a variety of data sources outside of the library catalog

The opportunity to imagine new user experiences?

(The de-integrated library system?)

The opportunity for really awesome item-level description!

Page 9: Cataloger 3.0: Competencies and Education for the BIBFRAME Catalog

Linked Data is a thingThe catalog is made up of data, not documents

That data is on the (surface) Web

Page 10: Cataloger 3.0: Competencies and Education for the BIBFRAME Catalog

Authority Control Finally Gets AwesomeWe switch from strings to things (proper identifiers)

Authority control is achieved with URIs that can be de-referenced

Might we pay a little more attention to our Authority records? Might they become info resources in their own right?

“The most basic unit of Linked Data value is the hyperlink. The most powerful aspect of hyperlinks is their ability deliver combined denotation (naming) and access (de-reference) services for data objects that represent entities (real-world, web, and other realms).” Kingsley Idehen, “Linked Data’s Follow-Your-Nose Pattern,” https://plus.google.com/+KingsleyIdehen/posts/KWXYFFvMw8g

Encoding is human-readableBIBFRAME can serialized in human-readable markup languages, like rdf/xml or json

Does the dichotomy between “copy catalogers” and “original catalogers” still make sense?

Everything is Non-MARCDoes the dichotomy between the “catalog librarian” and the “metadata librarian” still make sense?

Page 13: Cataloger 3.0: Competencies and Education for the BIBFRAME Catalog

User Interface Design is OursDeath of the out-of-the-box library catalog?

Browsing experiences?

Custom-tailored search features?

Micro-catalogs for specific purposes?

New User TasksMaybe we’ll stop giving them so much work

Toolkit for Cataloger 3.0NEW STUFF

Variety of markup languagesRDF & Semantic Web toolsItem-level descriptionLicenses and copyright for dataResearchInteroperability External collaborations

SAME OLD STUFF

Authority control

Cooperative content creation, sharing, and use

Database management

Entity-relationship model

User experience design

Education for Cataloger 3.0CATALOGER 2.0 LEARNED

Principles of information organization in libraries

Classification schemes

MARC formats

Content guidelines (RDA, AACR2)

CATALOGER 3.0 SHOULD LEARN

New principles of information organization for the Semantic Web

(OWL, SKOS, RDF)

Data transfer and transformationsTransmission (JSON, XML)Styling (CSS, XSLT)Querying (SQL, SPARQL)Reporting (PERL, Python)

Page 20: Cataloger 3.0: Competencies and Education for the BIBFRAME Catalog

The BIBFRAME Catalog LibrarianOur old labor paradigms don’t apply:Professional Librarian |= Original Cataloger

Paraprofessional Librarian |= Copy Cataloger

Metadata Librarian |= Digital Collections

Who is Cataloger 3.0?Database Manager? Discovery Interface Designer? Policy Setter?Usability Tester? Data Curator? Infographic Designer? Web Content Writer? Crosswalk Guru? Research Analyst?
