1 SHARED COLLECTIONS, SHARED RECORDS? RESOURCE SHARING AT THE META-LEVEL Charley Pennell, NCSU - Natalie Sommerville, Duke TRLN Annual Meeting, 13 July 2012

2 Library co-operation in the Triangle  UNC & Duke cooperation in material purchasing began in 1933!  NCSC joins in activities, 1950s; NCCU in 1995  Planning for joint automation system started 1979  BIS,  DRA,  Separate ILSs (Sirsi, ExLibris, III),  Endeca, (at NCSU only), 2007/08- (TRLN) 2

3 “TRLN United: one collection, one community”  Search TRLN combines the catalogs of four member systems into a common interface  Each institution also maintains own “skin”  Collection overlap study 2006 (based on OCLC number matches)  Assume greater overlap in electronic 3

4 Shared e-content 4

5 Bibliographic traits of e-resources  Bib records often sold separately from content  Licenses often disallow loading of records into OCLC or sharing with other libraries  E-resource record often a repurposed print record  Metadata quality varies between collections  Libraries experience difficulty overlaying bibs when source metadata changes; lack of unique IDs  Even where URLs to resource start the same, Libraries proxy to ease access and enable stats collection  Open-access resources often fall out of system developed for paid content 5

6 Shared e-content in TRLN Endeca  Multiple records describe same content (inconsistent IDs between members prevent roll-up)  Inconsistent loading of collection records between holding institutions  Confusing display of links to remote resources, particularly before suppression of 856$3$y$z  Proxying of open-content titles made them appear to be licensed to single institution 6

7 TRLN community solutions…  Electronic Resources Access Restrictions TF, 2009  Looked at display of e-resource links, esp. open-access  Recommended members consider sharing records  Shared Records TF, 2010  Developed model for record sharing  Implemented model for NC Live, ICPSR, GPO e-records  Created a mechanism for adding additional shared record sets (see last slide) 7

8 Shared record model  One institution takes responsibility for maintaining metadata (including authority control) for entire set  UNC: GPO DWS  NCSU: NC Live; EEBO  Duke: Oxford University Press  Endeca pipeline to accept collection metadata from maintenance agency only; all others rejected  Appropriate licensee URL to display for all licensed titles  Open access titles to display single URL for all  Open access titles recognized by domain (.gov,.edu,.org) or by record attributes (Item Cat2, 856$z) 8

9 Pros and cons of record sharing Positive  Group discounts on metadata!  Saves overall cost of authority control  Saves disc space/search time  Less public display clutter  Descriptive metadata for collections in synch  Work only done once! Saves staff time and disc space for non-maintenance libraries Negative  Most collection reports run from ILS; cannot be done if decision is made to not also load records locally  Loss of local control over metadata; changes subject to priorities of maintenance unit  How to get metadata back if record sharing program ceases 9

15 Duke Context 15  Workflow efficiencies are a core value for managing discovery of the Libraries’ resources  Efficiencies include loading of vendor-supplied MARC records for print, microform, and electronic collections  Loading of records for electronic resources dates back to the early 2000s

16 Initial reaction 16  Support for TRLN and its shared mission  Support for the efficiency of sharing records BUT  Discomfort with the ILS not being the MARC repository of record

17 Agents of Change 17  Migration to Serials Solutions in Fall 2010  Provided a centralized and accurate picture of electronic resource holdings  The knowledgebase becomes the place to retrieve data about electronic resource holdings  Vast majority of electronic resource discovery managed through Serials Solutions products; e.g. 360MARC service and Summon

18 Agents of Change continued 18  Cross-departmental team works to improve the electronic resources workflow process  Move from ILS OPAC to separate discovery layer underscores the already-acknowledged need for clean data  Case in point: Documents Without Shelves  Need for a data clean-up project for U.S. Documents electronic resources identified  DWS shared record project facilitated this effort

19 Current environment 19  Record sharing is part of the workflow for providing access to new eBook packages  Duke manages first shared record project for TRLN  University Press Scholarship Online  Shared collection of electronic and print resources  UNC manages the print  Duke manages the eBooks
