1 HATHITRUST A Shared Digital Repository Bibliographic Metadata and HathiTrust ALCTS CaMMS Catalog Management Interest Group Meeting American Library Association MidWinter Convention Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, January 25, 2014 Jon Rothman, Head, Library Systems Office, University of Michigan

2 HathiTrust Mission To contribute to the common good by collecting, organizing, preserving, communicating, and sharing the record of human knowledge.

3 HathiTrust Background Launched in 2008 by the libraries of the CIC Committee on Institutional Cooperation (CIC) and the University of California System. Initial focus on digitized book and journal content – 10,922,113 total volumes – 3,563,589 public domain (~33%) Currently 91 partner institutions and continuing to grow.

5 Where does HathiTrust’s bibliographic metadata come from? Bibliographic metadata is provided by depositors of digital content. Metadata must be supplied to HathiTrust before ingest of digital content can occur The metadata is used in several ways, including – To act as a manifest of the materials being deposited. – To identify and track records to their contributor. – To help in making an initial rights determination about each volume.

6 Minimal metadata specifications for deposited records Valid MARC binary or MARCXML structure Valid leader and $$a (or $$k where appropriate) A 955 field describing a single item – Item identifier (usually barcode) – Item description (enumeration/chronology) for multi-volume works OCLC Number (strongly preferred)

7 Duplicate detection Simple identifier match at bibliographic level, using OCLC numbers. OCNs most ubiquitous and unique identifiers in the records, but there are issues… Records without OCNs – Some partners didn’t have OCNs in any of their records – Some have had them in many, but not all, of their records Differences in OCN location, prefixes, etc. in records Different OCNs for same item.

8 HathiTrust metadata management Where – HathiTrust bibliographic metadata was managed in the University of Michigan’s Aleph LMS from 2008 until… – Zephir, a dedicated HathiTrust metadata management system developed by California Digital Library, launched in production in early December, Underlying principle – Records supplied to HathiTrust are not considered definitive. – Definitive record lives in the source institution’s own system and/or Worldcat.

9 Zephir Functionality Keeps all versions of records received from depositors. – OCLC number still used for duplicate detection – Records are clustered rather than merged. A weighting algorithm determines best bibliographic record in each cluster. – selected record, with item-level data for all ingested items attached to that cluster are selected for output. Provides a daily output of new/changed records. Records where none of the associated digital items have been ingested yet are not included.

10 Record correction and update General policy is not to correct or update the content of contributors’ records. In most cases, contributors are asked to correct and re-submit records with observed metadata errors or issues. When it’s necessary for a correction to happen quickly: – A corrected “shadow record” is created in Zephir -- temporarily takes the place of the contributor record in outputs. – Contributor is asked to submit a corrected record. When corrected record is received, the shadow record is removed.
