1 Yes, we can! Some observations on library linked data

2 What is the answer?

3 What is the question?

4 What do we do?

5 Why do we do it?

6 Cataloging Distinguish Differentiate Separate

7 Cataloging Distinguish Differentiate Separate

8 Is this the same book? Or Is this a different book?

9 Order A B C Headings: author title subject terms

10 Order Taxonomy

11 Order Shelf location

12 "Books are a slow conversation" Each one listens to others and talks to others.

13

14 Evolution of the Catalog Book catalogs Card catalogs Online catalogs Same data

15

16

17 Today's tools and models MARC (at the end of its life) FRBR (a model, but based on past practices) RDA (based on FRBR and AACR and MARC, with some new concepts).

18 Where do we need to go?

19 Further

20 Cutter's questions What books does the library have by this author? What books does the library have on this topic? Does the library have a book with this title?

21 Tomorrow's questions Starting with this author, what authors are related to him/her through their subject matter? Which are closest to this author? Who else was writing in this time in this place? Given this subject, who are the key authors?

22 Day after tomorrow's questions Where does this subject lead me? What resources (library or outside of library)? What are related subjects? Information about the subject (encyclo/wiki/pedia) Persons and institutions related to the subject.

23 Seeking books, or seeking knowledge? BOTH! But users have learned to come to the library only to seek books.

24 Where we could go Semantic web – to interact with data from other communities, ending the library data silo Navigation and discovery for users that takes better advantage of the data and leads users to new discoveries Computable data – ability to mine bibliographic data for information Expansion of library data through discovery of new communities of interes t.

25

26 Similarities are as important as differences Where do we find the similarities in library data? Answer: in authoritative headings; in controlled lists, in fixed (data) fields; in some text fields

27 Could we reorganize around similarities? Persons Subjects

28 Could we reorganize around similarities? Persons Subjects

29 Could we reorganize around similarities? Persons Subjects

36 Everything is connected to something No (or few) dead ends Computation is "easy" (e.g. topic maps, term clouds, timelines) Users can discover previously unseen connections between information resources.

37 Back to our tools FR's – FRBR, FRAD, FRSAD RDA

38 Perfect, or perfected? Not yet

39 FRBR Work Item Expression Manifestation

40 FRBR Work Item Expression Manifestation Corp Person

41 FRBR Work Item Expression Manifestation Event Object Place Concept Corp Person

42 FRBR Work Item Expression Manifestation Event Object Place Concept Corp Person title key

43 WEMI Work Item Expression Manifestation lang format Person/Corp

44 FRBR Work Item Expression Manifestation Place of publicationpages seriesills. title Person/Corp

45 FRBR – bibliographic relationships Work Item Expression Manifestation Work Expression

47 Some issues - FRBR Not well understood Untested, mostly unimplemented Superceded by FRAD, FRSAD, and now requiring changes to be compatible Group 1 (WEMI) may impede interaction with non-FRBR-ized metadata.

48 More issues - FRBR Group 3 (Subjects) should be replaced with a general subject relationship to anything that can be identified Group 3 elements should be general (e.g. Place) or be subproperties of a more general property Placement of data elements within WEMI is highly debated, especially for collective items (books of essays, multiple music works on a disk).

49 FR for Authority Data (FRAD) Person Corp Family

50 FR for Authority Data Person Corp Family Identification name Controlled access point Rules Agency

51 FR for Authority Data Person Corp Family Identification name Controlled access point Rules Agency Is basis for using Assigned by

52 FR for Subject Authority Data (FRSAD) Work Thema Nomen Has subject Has name

53 Some issues - RDA Not well understood Untested, mostly unimplemented Adheres strictly to FRBR (which may be undergoing changes) Every RDA element is valid only as a single FRBR entity.

65 To Do Test FRBR and RDA in a linked data environment Simplify where possible Create links between library data and non- library metadata Encourage use of library data outside of libraries Encourage use of non-library data inside libraries.
