The sharing and re-use of research information is becoming an 
increasingly important aspect of scientific activity. Text publications 
are traditionally the main way of publishing research output and 
challenges still exist for their optimal recording and dissemination. 
Scientific communities increasingly recognise the immense significance 
of storing, discovering, processing, preserving and re-using data sets 
as well as other types of research objects like workflows and software. 
Furthermore, Public Sector Information, potentially valuable for 
research purposes, is provided openly by governments although not always 
in forms that enable re-use.

Metadata is a critical factor in this area, actually providing the means 
to promote black-box digital files to discoverable and re-usable 
objects. Rich metadata about research output needs to be recorded and 
disseminated, including contextual and provenance information (for 
example, relationships of publications and data sets with people,

REMINDER: ALCTS Announces an ALA 2015 Preconference on Real World Linked Data

Please excuse any cross-posting...


Beyond the Looking Glass
Real World Linked Data —  What Does It Take to Make It Work?
Friday, June 26, 2015, 8:30 am – 4:30pm
Moscone Convention Center, San Francisco


Current discussion puts undue emphasis on the philosophy and technology of linked data. Yes, it's cool and demands to be played with. And yes, the library community is late to the party. But what is required for success besides an interesting idea?


This preconference is intended for non-IT library staff, that have a general understanding of linked data, and are ready to engage further in learning and applying data modeling concepts that are central to using/creating linked data in a production environment. Some knowledge of XML and HTML will be assumed (although not required).


8:30–8:45    Introduction, Announcements, & Attendees’ Desired Take Aways

Moderator: Laura Dawson, ISNI; with attendee participation.


8:45–9:45    Designing the Garden: Getting Grounded in Linked Data

Presenter: Jenn Riley, McGill University Library


Re-envisioning library metadata as Linked Data will require far more than data migration and implementation of new technical tools. Our community must re-design itself--working towards a shared understanding of what systems and people working with library metadata do, what success looks like, and how we work with other communities. This presentation will lay the groundwork for the remaining preconference speakers through discussion of high level functions for library metadata staff in a Linked Data environment, metadata pipelines within the library community and with external communities, and the value that cultural heritage organizations can bring to information both digital and analog.


9:45–10:00    Attendee Thoughts & Questions
On Jenn’s presentation, as well as how this impacts desired take aways. Hopefully, these Q&A periods at the end of each presentation will help us create a conversation throughout the day, that is summed up and connected in the final take away session.


10:00–10:15    Break
Refreshments provided by ALA.


10:15–11:15    An OCLC Perspective on What It Takes to Make Linked Data Work
Presenter: Karen Smith Yoshimura with assistance from Jean Godby, OCLC


From OCLC’s experiences in data mining WorldCat to identify entities that can be exposed to the semantic Web, we’ve learned there’s a lot of data that can be parsed easily and made into “statements” — and sadly, a lot that cannot be without much more effort. Karen and Jean offer some examples from OCLC Researchmultilingual bibliographic structure and performers extraction adventures of what metadata specialists can do now to  make it easier to transform text strings in MARC data into the entity-“things” we later expose as linked data that others can consume.


11:15–11:30    Questions

On Karen’s presentation, as well as how this impacts desired take aways. Hopefully, these Q&A periods at the end of each presentation will help us create a conversation throughout the day, that is summed up and connected in the final take away session.


11:30–1:00    Lunch Break


1:00–2:00    Modeling, Money, & Metrics Or How to NOT Re-Invent the Wheel

Presenters: Nannette Naught, Information Management Team (IMT), Inc; with Laura Dawson, ISNI


Are you wondering what the business case for linked data looks like? Are you asking yourself where to look for working models? Are you uncomfortable justifying modeling activities? Or explaining the real world benefits of this total change in approach? You are not alone. These questions are on Library’s mind today. As experienced resource developers and product managers, Nannette and Laura have learned to answer similar questions in the publishing, standards, and knowledge management worlds. They will share their their thoughts about how to answer questions simply in a way that speaks across discipline and skill level. They will introduce some experience-driven best practices to take back to your institution.


2:00–2:15    Questions

On Nannette and Laura’s presentation, as well as how this impacts desired take aways. Hopefully, these Q&A periods at the end of each presentation will help us createconversation throughout the day, that is summed up and connected in the final take away session.


2:15–2:45    Break

Refreshments provided by ALA.


2:45–3:45    Lessons Learned from a Greenhorn Ontologist, Or How I Couldn't Have Given This Presentation a Year Ago

Presenter: Steven Folsom, Cornell University


Are you a library technical services professional and ever felt uncomfortable about writing to the BIBFRAME list (or other linked data conversation) with a question? This presenter has too.  As a member of the Linked Data for Libraries project (LD4L, a Mellon funded grant between Cornell, Stanford, and Harvard) Steven has had to quickly develop a command of linked data principles and ontology best practices. He will introduce core ontology concepts and recommend strategies for skills building in order for library technical service professionals to participate comfortably in the development and use of ontologies.


3:45–4:00    Questions

On Steven’s presentation, as well as how this impacts desired take aways. Hopefully, these Q&A periods at the end of each presentation will help us create conversation throughout the day, that is summed up and connected in the final take away session.


4:00–4:30    The Take Aways
Moderator: Laura Dawson. Group discussion with attendee and panelist participation.

Register through the ALA Annual Conference web site. Add the preconference to your conference registration, or register for the preconference alone.  The price of this full-day preconference is: $219 for ALCTS members (use special code ALCTS2015); $269 ALA for members, $319 for non-members.  Event Code: ALC3

Extension for submission to the Special Track on Metadata & Semantics for Cultural Collections & Applications, MTSR 2015

Apologies for cross-posting


------------------------------------------

Special Track on Metadata & Semantics for Cultural Collections & Applications

Part of the 9th International Conference on Metadata and Semantic Research (MTSR 2015), 9 - 11 September 2015, Manchester, UK

Submission deadline: June 5th, 2015

Proceedings will be published in Springer CCIS series

 

AIM AND SCOPE

Cultural Heritage collections are essential knowledge infrastructures that provide a solid representation of the historical background of human communities. These knowledge infrastructures are constructed from and integrate cultural information derived from diverse memory institutions, mainly museums, archives and libraries. Each individual community has spent a lot of effort in order to develop, support and promote its own metadata as tools for the description and dissemination of cultural information, mainly related to its particular resources and use.

The exposure of cultural information into the Semantic Web makes clear that metadata have to be accurate and deeply interpretable on the semantic level. Ontologies could facilitate these procedures since they constitute conceptualizations - according to the specific point of view of a memory institution or its particular community - providing at the same time the context for interpreting the respecting metadata to their domain of discourse. At the same time, there are also inter-domain efforts targeted to semantically align data (research data, educational data, public sector information etc.) to cultural information. New challenges are also emerged from the need to incorporate cultural information into the new publication paradigms, where a variety of resources (data, metadata, processes, results, etc) are linked and integrated, providing better shareability and reusability. The management of the cultural information provides challenges associated with (i) metadata modeling, specification, standardization, extraction, evaluation, mapping, integration and effective use, (ii) knowledge representation as conceptualization to provide the context for unambiguously interpreting metadata, and (iii) information integration from different contexts for the provision of integrated access and advanced services to the users.

The aim of this Special Track is to maintain a dialogue where researchers and practitioners working on all the aspects of the cultural information will come together and exchange ideas about open issues at all stages of the metadata life cycle. The track also welcomes works related to metadata semantics and applications for new approaches to cultural information publication and sharing, as well as to interlinking to other dataset published in the Semantic Web universe.

TOPICS

The papers in this special track should be original and of high quality, addressing issues in areas such as:

  • Cultural heritage metadata models, standards, interoperability, mappings and integration
  • Automated metadata extraction
  • Ontologies and knowledge representation for the cultural heritage domain
  • Extracting semantics, entities, and patterns from Cultural Heritage collections
  • Collection models and item - collection relationships representation
  • Collection - level metadata modeling and management
  • Linked open data approaches for the cultural heritage domain
  • Composite content-discovery and management of components and interrelationships
  • Publication, linking and citation of Cultural Heritage information and resources
  • Large volume content management - high resolution image data sets
  • 3D models-indexing, storage and retrieval approaches
  • Federation of repositories/data infrastructures
  • Integration of intra or inter disciplinary heterogeneous resources
  • Infrastructures for sharing content
  • Digital Curation workflows and models
  • Preservation metadata for cultural heritage digital objects
  • Metadata quality metrics
  • Case studies

authority, authorityURI, valueURI, xlink:href &c for publishers and some other elements

Dear MODS users & developers,

I'm crosswalking BIBFRAME to MODS. In the former all described agents using bf:Relator. The relator
vocabulary is LOC relators and we model the properties of agents themselves using SCHEMA.org.  We intend
to fetch the names of our  relators from viaf.org.

My question is: Why I'm not allowed to use the attributes authority, authorityURI, valueURI or even
xlink:href on publisher (which is defined as  the type stringPlusLanguagePlusSupplied in XSD), whereas
all of these are available for originInfo/place including all bells and whistles of a mods:place with
coordinates in Mercator's projection... 

In the snippet below the first element (place) is valid, the second (publisher) is not

<originInfo xmlns="http://www.loc.gov/mods/v3" eventType="publication">
    <place>
        <placeTerm valueURI="http://viaf.org/viaf/131945240">København</placeTerm>
    </place>
    <publisher valueURI="http://viaf.org/viaf/127954890">Gyldendalske boghandel, Nordisk forlag</publisher>
</originInfo>

Just wondering :^(

It would be tempting to add mods:name to the content model for originInfo (for printers, publishers etc). 
Or, perhaps we should provide facilities for linked data on all relevant elements?

Yours

Sigfrid

2nd Call for Papers: Special Track on Metadata & Semantics for Cultural Collections & Applications, MTSR 2015

Apologies for cross-posting


------------------------------------------

Special Track on Metadata & Semantics for Cultural Collections & Applications

Part of the 9th International Conference on Metadata and Semantic Research (MTSR 2015), 9 - 11 September 2015, Manchester, UK

Submission deadline: May 19th, 2015

Proceedings will be published in Springer CCIS series

 

AIM AND SCOPE

Cultural Heritage collections are essential knowledge infrastructures that provide a solid representation of the historical background of human communities. These knowledge infrastructures are constructed from and integrate cultural information derived from diverse memory institutions, mainly museums, archives and libraries. Each individual community has spent a lot of effort in order to develop, support and promote its own metadata as tools for the description and dissemination of cultural information, mainly related to its particular resources and use.

The exposure of cultural information into the Semantic Web makes clear that metadata have to be accurate and deeply interpretable on the semantic level. Ontologies could facilitate these procedures since they constitute conceptualizations - according to the specific point of view of a memory institution or its particular community - providing at the same time the context for interpreting the respecting metadata to their domain of discourse. At the same time, there are also inter-domain efforts targeted to semantically align data (research data, educational data, public sector information etc.) to cultural information. New challenges are also emerged from the need to incorporate cultural information into the new publication paradigms, where a variety of resources (data, metadata, processes, results, etc) are linked and integrated, providing better shareability and reusability. The management of the cultural information provides challenges associated with (i) metadata modeling, specification, standardization, extraction, evaluation, mapping, integration and effective use, (ii) knowledge representation as conceptualization to provide the context for unambiguously interpreting metadata, and (iii) information integration from different contexts for the provision of integrated access and advanced services to the users.

The aim of this Special Track is to maintain a dialogue where researchers and practitioners working on all the aspects of the cultural information will come together and exchange ideas about open issues at all stages of the metadata life cycle. The track also welcomes works related to metadata semantics and applications for new approaches to cultural information publication and sharing, as well as to interlinking to other dataset published in the Semantic Web universe.

TOPICS

The papers in this special track should be original and of high quality, addressing issues in areas such as:

  • Cultural heritage metadata models, standards, interoperability, mappings and integration
  • Automated metadata extraction
  • Ontologies and knowledge representation for the cultural heritage domain
  • Extracting semantics, entities, and patterns from Cultural Heritage collections
  • Collection models and item - collection relationships representation
  • Collection - level metadata modeling and management
  • Linked open data approaches for the cultural heritage domain
  • Composite content-discovery and management of components and interrelationships
  • Publication, linking and citation of Cultural Heritage information and resources
  • Large volume content management - high resolution image data sets
  • 3D models-indexing, storage and retrieval approaches
  • Federation of repositories/data infrastructures
  • Integration of intra or inter disciplinary heterogeneous resources
  • Infrastructures for sharing content
  • Digital Curation workflows and models
  • Preservation metadata for cultural heritage digital objects
  • Metadata quality metrics
  • Case studies

 

SUBMISSION GUIDELINES

Authors can submit either full papers (12 pages) or short papers (6 pages). Submitted papers have to follow the LNCS proceedings formatting style and guidelines.

The submitted papers will undergo the same peer review as the submissions for MTSR 2015 and accepted contributions will be published in the MTSR 2015 proceedings (Springer CCIS series). Authors of accepted papers will be asked to register to the Conference and present their work.

Authors of the best papers will be invited to submit extended and revised versions of their papers for possible publication in selected international journals, including the International Journal of Metadata, Semantics and Ontologies (Inderscience), and Program: Electronic library and information systems (Emerald) (list incomplete).

The MODS/MADS Editorial Committee and the Library of Congress are pleased to announce that a new incremental version of the MODS Schema, 3.6, is now available at http://www.loc.gov/standards/mods/mods.xsd
(and also available at
http://www.loc.gov/standards/mods/mods-3-6.xsd, http://www.loc.gov/standards/mods/v3/mods.xsd, and http://www.loc.gov/standards/mods/v3/mods-3-6.xsd)

This revision is backwards compatible to version 3.5 and therefore only includes changes that do not result in invalidating existing MODS records.  Some changes of particular note in MODS 3.6 are:

1)  New attributes added to the <hierarchicalGeographic> subelement of <subject>.  Further information and examples can be found at:  http://www.loc.gov/standards/mods/changes-3-6-hierarchicalGeographic.html

2)  Four new attributes (that refer to other attributes) added to <relatedItem>

3)  Addition of <nameIdentifier> under <name>

4)  The <cartographics> subelement of <subject> has been made extensible

5)  Addition of <itemIdentifier> subelement of <location> <physicalLocation> <holdingSimple><copyInformation> with type attributes.

A complete list of changes in MODS 3.6 may be found at: http://www.loc.gov/standards/mods/changes-3-6.html. Revised versions of the MODS User Guidelines, the MARC to MODS mapping, and the XSLT conversion that incorporate the 3.6 changes will be available on the MODS web site soon.

Please direct any comments or questions on the MODS 3.6 Schema, or MODS/MADS developments in general, to the MODS Listserv <http://listserv.loc.gov/listarch/mods.html>.

Re: Reviewed articles

Dear Ivana,
My initial reaction was to suggest a note with a type attribute, but now I am thinking it should be considered a genre term. That's where we would code <genre>journal article</genre> for example.
One of my colleagues on the MODS Editorial Committee pointed out, however, that this could create a problem on the retrieval side when <genre>article</genre> or <genre>journal article</genre> has already been assigned to the existing articles in your repository. When adding a new genre for "peer reviewed article" it might skew the search results as some of the existing ones may be peer-reviewed as well. Obviously not a problem if you are just beginning to add this type of material to your collection. You could assign two genre types for both "article" and "peer reviewed article" to make the connection.

In order to remedy this situation in the long term, the MODS EC is planning to suggest adding "peer reviewed article" to the MARC genre form list at:
http://www.loc.gov/standards/valuelist/marcgt.html
That way the relationship between "article" and "peer reviewed article" could be expressed through the vocabulary itself once (at some point) it will be put on id.loc.gov, LC's linked data service.

Hope this helps!

Melanie

Dear Ivana,
just want to make sure I am understanding your question correctly.
Are you looking to point to a review of the journal article? For example, include a link to a review that has been written about the article that you are describing?
Or do you need to indicate in your metadata if the article has been peer reviewed or not?

Best,
Melanie

OR2015 NEWS: Preliminary Program Information Now Available; Remember to Register and Reserve Your Hotel Room

Dear Colleagues,

We are pleased to announce that information on accepted paper, panel, and 24x7 sessions at Open Repositories 2015 is now available on the OR2015 conference website: http://www.or2015.net/

Open Repositories 2015, taking place in Indianapolis on June 8-11, received an unprecedented number of proposals this year, with 240 proposals submitted across the conference and interest group tracks. This has also been the most selective Open Repositories, and only 38% of conference paper and panels were accepted in the main track. We have accepted 6 panels, 21 24x7’s (including Rants and Raves), 37 papers and 60 posters which will all give an exciting snapshot of work in the open repositories community.

The Program Committee would like to take this opportunity to again thank all of our reviewers who took time to review workshops, papers, panels, 24x7’s and posters. Please stay tuned for more information on the schedule and interest group presentations, which we will post later in April.

** Reminder: Register and reserve your hotel room **

Online registration for OR2015 is currently open, and participants can save $50 by registering by May 8. Special negotiated room rates at the conference hotel are available until May 16. For more information, please visit the conference website: http://www.or2015.net/ 

We look forward to seeing you at OR2015!
