Problem with listservs

The Library has had problems with its listservs since the shutdown last weekend (for a test of power backup).  Please save any messages you may have tried to send, that bounced, and send them again in a few days when we expect things to normalize.   We apologize for the inconvenience.  We think that messages originating inside LC are distributed, so expect that you will receive this “bulletin”.

Re: LC System Maintenance (beginning 5PM Frday August 28, 2015)

Dear All,

[sorry for cross-postings]

Beginning Friday and continuing through the weekend, LC will perform major system maintenance.  All LC
systems and websites will be taken offline during this time.  This includes ID.LOC.GOV as well as LOC
metadata standards and schema sites.
See http://www.loc.gov/today/pr/2015/15-A02.html .

  Maintenance is scheduled to begin Friday 28 at 5PM EDT and to be completed by Monday 30 August at 6:00AM EDT.

We hope service to ID.LOC.GOV will be restored sooner than the closing of the scheduled maintenance
window.  

Sorry for the inconvenience.
Nate

Demographic Group Terms added to LC Linked Data Service

Demographic Group Terms available through the LC Linked Data Service

 

The Library of Congress announces the availability in its Linked Data Service (LC LDS) of the LC Demographic Group Terms vocabulary, which the Library is developing in consultation with the ALA ALCTS Subject Access Committee.  The demographic terms can be accessed as one composite list or through 12 lists representing various demographic categories, such as age groups and occupational groups.   Individual members of the lists may be searched via key word.  Entry to the vocabulary is through the main LC LDS portal, id.loc.gov, but the following link goes directly to the Demographic Group Terms within the LC LDS:

http://id.loc.gov/authorities/demographicTerms.html

 

Approximately 400 demographic terms that were approved during the first phase of a pilot are available now, and more terms will be added in the future.  Links to descriptions of the vocabulary and its use in bibliographic control, as well as to information about the pilot, are available on the following web site:

 

http://www.loc.gov/catdir/cpso/genreformgeneral.html

 

As usual for LC LDS data, the LC Demographic Group Terms may be downloaded in various formats, with a focus on RDF.

Highwire press tags / google scholar transformation?

Dear MODS list,

We would like to output Highwire Press tags when displaying our documents 
online. It has been recommended that we utilize highwire press tags [0] in 
order for google scholar to more readily make our material discoverable [1]. 

Does a transformation from MODs, our upstream format, exist? or should I 
begin crafting my own?

Best,
Matt

Hi,
it seems that this vocabulary corresponds to the mods:typeOfResource vocabulary.
But currently there isn't a way to provide authority attributes family in this element.
So do they correspond? and if yes wiil the authority attributes be provided?
Many thanks.

Uniform title (name/title) and URIs in MODS

How is the URI for a uniform title (name/title) supposed to be encoded in MODS?

Do I put the URI for the name in the name element and the URI for the name/title in the title element?
    <titleInfo type="uniform" nameTitleGroup="1" authority="naf" valueURI="http://id.loc.gov/authorities/names/no95050975">
        <title>Szenen aus der Czárda, no. 4</title>
    </titleInfo>
    <name type="personal" nameTitleGroup="1" usage="primary" authority="naf" valueURI="http://id.loc.gov/authorities/names/n85119442">
        <namePart>Hubay, Jenő, 1858-1937</namePart>
        <role>
            <roleTerm authority="marcrelator" type="code" valueURI="http://id.loc.gov/vocabulary/relators/cmp">cmp</roleTerm>
            <roleTerm authority="marcrelator" type="text" valueURI="http://id.loc.gov/vocabulary/relators/cmp">composer</roleTerm>
        </role>
    </name>

Or do I only put the URI for the name/title in the title element since the titleInfo and name nodes are linked
through the nameTitleGroup attribute?
    <titleInfo type="uniform" nameTitleGroup="1" authority="naf" valueURI="http://id.loc.gov/authorities/names/no95050975">
        <title>Szenen aus der Czárda, no. 4</title>
    </titleInfo>
    <name type="personal" nameTitleGroup="1" usage="primary">
        <namePart>Hubay, Jenő, 1858-1937</namePart>
        <role>
            <roleTerm authority="marcrelator" type="code" valueURI="http://id.loc.gov/vocabulary/relators/cmp">cmp</roleTerm>
            <roleTerm authority="marcrelator" type="text" valueURI="http://id.loc.gov/vocabulary/relators/cmp">composer</roleTerm>
        </role>
    </name>

Thanks,
Shelley

Using MODS to Describe Cultural Heritage Resources – June 24

Introduction to Linked Data for Libraries - July 15

Introduction to METS – August 20

 

 

Using MODS to Describe Cultural Heritage Resources (Live Online)

 

The Metadata Object Description Schema (MODS) is used widely for resource description in cultural heritage institutions doing digitization projects. This session gives an overview of its purpose, design principles, data elements and implementations particularly for digital projects.    https://www.lyrasis.org/Pages/EventDetail.aspx?Eid=797EEADE-86E7-E411-88A4-002219586F0D

 

Date: Wednesday, June 24, 2015

Time: 10:00am - 12:00pm (EST)

 

 

 

Introduction to Linked Data for Libraries (Live Online)

 

Linked Open Data is a feature of the Semantic Web that has been gaining attention in recent years. "Linked Data" refers to data published in accordance with principles designed to facilitate linkages among all kinds of resources on the Web; it goes beyond hypertext links between documents to include links to anything that has identity, such as people, controlled vocabularies, geographic places, etc. Linked Data opens up the wealth of resources in libraries and exposes it to the wider world of the Web, enabling sharing and reusability. This class provides an introduction to the principles of Linked Data, the methods of making data available in such a form, and illustrates interesting applications that libraries are developing.   https://www.lyrasis.org/Pages/EventDetail.aspx?Eid=FE058B10-87E7-E411-88A4-002219586F0D

 

Date: Wednesday, July 15, 2015

Time: 2:00pm - 4:00pm (EST)

 

 

 

Introduction to METS (Metadata Encoding and Transmission Standard)  (Live Online)

 

This class introduces the features of METS and how it is used as an information package to include metadata and digital content. It describes the parts of a METS document, how different metadata schemes are used with it, and how it is implemented in digital library projects. It also addresses the purpose and creation of METS application profiles, which detail best practices for specific implementations. https://www.lyrasis.org/Pages/EventDetail.aspx?Eid=EBFF7B3B-87E7-E411-88A4-002219586F0D

 

Date: Thursday, August 20, 2015
