Question about objects that are part of exhibit

So, suppose that we want to "tag" some of our digital objects as being part of an exhibit, or used in a class. 
This isn't really a subject, and it also doesn't seem to fit relatedItem.  Any ideas on what might we use for this?

Analogous I suppose to MARC 585.

Thanks

Special Track on Metadata & Semantics for Cultural Collections & Applications (3rd Call for Papers)

3rd Call for Papers, apologies for cross-posting.

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

SPECIAL TRACK on METADATA & SEMANTICS for CULTURAL COLLECTIONS & APPLICATIONS
http://www.ionio.gr/labs/dbis/mtsr2016/ 

Part of the 10th International Conference on Metadata and Semantic Research (MTSR 2016),
22 - 25 November 2016, Gottingen, Germany

New Submission deadline: June 24th, 2016
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 2016 and accepted
contributions will be published in the MTSR 2016 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).

Alternate Names in MODS

Dear MODS implementers,

A few weeks ago, the question of accommodating alternate names in MODS was brought up on this list: http://listserv.loc.gov/cgi-bin/wa?A2=ind1602&L=mods&D=0&T=0&P=176

The MODS Editorial Committee discussed the issue during our last call and we agreed that the approach of using the <at> altRepGroup attribute suggested earlier  (http://listserv.loc.gov/cgi-bin/wa?A2=ind1602&L=mods&T=0&P=544) would be the best solution, though it would require some minor changes to MODS in order to better accommodate this use case.

We propose to change the definition of the <at> altRepGroup attribute to read:


This attribute is used to link alternate representations of the same element content, such as different scripts, transliterations, and translations or differing forms of name such as secular/religious or real/nickname.”

In addition, we propose adding an attribute <at> altType that can be used in conjunction with <at> altRepGroup.  The <at> altType attribute could be used to (1) express the fact that it is an alternate name and not just an alternate form of the name and (2) specify the type of alternate name.

So an example would look like this:

<name type=”personal” altRepGroup=”1”>
<namePart>Claudia Alta Johnson</namePart>
</name>
<name type=”personal” altRepGroup=”1” altType="nickname”>
<namePart>Lady Bird Johnson</namePart>
</name>


The following guidelines should be applied:

-          Either all of the members of the group are alternative forms of the same name, or all are alternative names for the entity.

-          If they are all alternative forms of the same name, then all must omit the altType attribute.

-          If they are all alternative names, then at least one MUST (and any number of them may) include the altType attribute.

-          In the latter case, if you don’t want to assign a specific type to any of them, then pick one (at random) and say <at> altType=”altName”.

 

These rules may seem complicated, but they would only affect MODS implementations that take advantage of this new capability and could be ignored by all others.

We are looking forward to any suggestions or feedback.


Regards,
Melanie Wacker

alternate names?

Does MODS have a method of encoding alternate names for a person or corp?  For example, "Claudia Alta Johnson" and "Lady Bird Johnson" or "IBM" and "International Business Machines"

 

I was thinking I could I encode them as <namePart type="alternative"> but the MODS description of namePart only lists four values for <at> type and none of them are "alternative".  Is that list of four set in stone, or are those just examples, and I'm free to use other values if I want/need to?

 

<name type=”corporate”>

   <namePart>IBM</namePart>

   <namePart type=”alternative”>International Business Machines”</namePart>

</name>

 

Or should it just go in as part of <description>?

 

Thanks --

 

Michele
