1 Jennifer Bowen, University of Rochester ALA Annual Conference 2009, Chicago, Illinois 1 The eXtensible Catalog's Metadata Services Toolkit Lowering the Bar for Automated Metadata Processing

2 Agenda What is the eXtensible Catalog (XC) Project? – How XC software works The XC Metadata Services Toolkit (MST) and Metadata Services: – How they work MST demo Advantages of XC for metadata management 2

3 The eXtensible Catalog (XC) Set of open-source software tools Facilitate resource discovery and metadata management Funding from Andrew W. Mellon Foundation and from XC partner institutions Software release: March 2009-January 2010 Coming soon: eXtensible Catalog Organization 3

4 XC software functionalities User Interface: Next-generation library website and search interface Metadata Tools: Aggregate metadata from various repositories to enable fast searching Connectivity: Create open standards interfaces to Integrated Library Systems 4

5 XC software overview User Interface: Metadata Tools: Connectivity: Drupal Toolkit OAI Toolkit Metadata Services Toolkit Record Cleanup FRBRization Authority Control Aggregation NCIP Toolkit LMS Toolkit 5

6 OAI-PMH ILS XC software overview Metadata Services Toolkit Record Cleanup FRBRization Authority Control Aggregation Metadata Tools: OAI ToolkitNCIP Toolkit Connectivity: Drupal Toolkit User Interface: Repository NCIP LMS Toolkit 6

7 XC Metadata Services Toolkit Metadata Services Toolkit Record Cleanup FRBRization Authority Control Aggregation Metadata Tools: New type of cataloging tool Services – Automated – Configurable – Pluggable User interface for library staff, not end users 7

8 XC Metadata Services Toolkit Based upon proposed NSDL metadata services hub (Hillmann, Sutton, Phipps) Enables libraries to aggregate metadata and run services on it User interface for managing metadata services NOT a metadata editor (but can eventually incorporate one) 8

9 How the XC MST works Moves metadata with OAI-PMH – Harvester, repository “Suck it in, clean it up, share it” – MARCXML, other XML schemas, user-generated metadata Share software – metadata services – Use an XC service “as is”, or modify it – Develop and share other services 9

10 XC metadata services Normalization – Transform metadata so that it can be displayed Schema transformation: – MARCXML to XC, DC to XC “FRBRization” Authority control matching Aggregation 10

24 XC advantages for metadata Enables automated handling of metadata changes: – New records, updates, deletes – Propagates changes throughout the system Web interfaces for trouble-shooting Low risk of data corruption (easy to fix) Ideal platform for experimentation 24

25 New roles for catalogers Design and test metadata services Manage flow of metadata System/application design User research 25
