Article reprints redux

Thank you for your responses!

So I'm going to rephrase my previous post ...

Are you folks cataloging article reprints? If so, how are you handling them?

Thank you!

Philippine languages help needed.

I am attempting to clear a backlog of materials left by a long-retired colleague, and am asking for language
assistance. The text I am dealing with appears to be (from research done earlier) in Hiligaynon mixed with
Cebuano and possibly Waray-Waray words.

If you have some knowledge of these languages, please contact me privately at <abry@...<mailto:abry@...>>.

Thank you.

[Typo of the day for librarians] Consev* (for Conservancy, Conservation, etc.)

Good news for our furry bat friends! Nearly five years ago, I blogged about  
White-Nose Syndrome, a little-understood disease that was destroying bat  
colonies in the United States and Canada. But just last week, the Nature  
Conservancy reported that, for the first time, infected bats have been  
cured. Thanks to the collaboration of individual researchers, agencies, and  
donors, 150 bats were treated and released back into the wild on May 20 at  
the Mark Twain Cave Complex in Hannibal, Missouri. It turns out the fungus  
responsible for the disease, Pseudogymnoascus destructans, can be greatly  
inhibited by a common bacterium, and scientists are now hopeful for  
long-term success.

Congratulations to the bats and their helpers. And you, dear reader, can do  
your part to Consev* the health of our catalogs by eliminating today's  
typo. OhioLINK is host to 25 instances, and 322 English-language entries  
can be found in WorldCat.

MARC-free Cataloging with RDA--Join the RDA Preconeference

Jane-In, The Summer of Linked Data: The Jane-athon comes to San Francisco

Our second-ever Jane-athon will continue the exploration of collaborative cataloging in a Linked Data
world through the creation of Jane Austen-related RDA data outside of the MARC environment. We have
assembled a stellar list of experts to serve as coaches and team leaders, including JSC Chair Gordon
Dunsire, RIMMF developer Deborah Fritz, Robert Maxwell (author of Maxwell's RDA Handbook), Thomas
Brenndorfer (author of the upcoming RDA Essentials), and many more (full list below). We even have Kelley
McGrath of Oregon leading the team on Moving Images. The first Jane-athon, Fun with Dick and Jane (and
RDA)<http://www.rda-jsc.org/Jane-athon.html>, was a great success and a lot of fun, and we expect no
less for the Jane-In.

This is a unique opportunity to pioneer the linked data landscape for libraries and to connect with those
some several of the subject's top thought leaders. All are welcome no matter what background or level of
knowledge (cataloger/developer pairs are particularly encouraged). The only requirement is an active
curiosity about RDA and linked data and a willingness to meet new people, try new things, and have fun.
LEARN MORE<http://www.rdatoolkit.org/janein>

Coaches--Gordon Dunsire, Deborah fritz, Diane Hillmann (Metadata Management Associates), Thurstan
Young (British Library), Kathy Glennan (University of Maryland; JSC member), Robert Maxwell (BYU),
Jean Pajerek (Cornell University), Ebe Kartus (Australian Catholic University; JSC member), Barbara
Bushman (NIH/NLM)

Team Leaders--Kelley McGrath (University of Oregon), Chris Todd (New Zealand National Library), Emily
Dust Nimsakont (Nebraska Library Commission), Melanie Polutta (Library of Congress), Adam Schiff
(University of Washington), Thomas Brenndorfer (Guelph Public Library), Greta de Groat (Stanford
University), Lori Robare (University of Oregon), Susan Wynne (Georgia State), and John Hostage
(Harvard University).

The second Jane-athon, the Jane-in, will take place at ALA Annual 2015 in San Francisco on Friday, June 26,
2015. It will be a day-long event, running from 8:30 am to 4:00 pm. Continental breakfast and lunch will be provided.

Journal article reprints?

Thank you for your responses!

Would you folks be able to point me to records in OCLC that are for journal
articles that have been reprinted? I need an example to work from.

Thank you!

Re: same book with different subtitles

Seems to be two different (but very similar) items.  The title page 
is supposed to be the unique way a publisher identifies the 
work.  ("Supposed" means the publisher does not always do what the 
cataloger wants.)

job ad vs. job description

Dear Friends,

Re-posting: Can anyone share with me examples of a job ad for a cataloger
position and examples of a job description for the same cataloger position?
I've been asked to provide both and want to see examples of the difference
between a job ad and a job description.

Several Autocat-ers said they have the same question.  Can anyone describe
how you've done these 2 documents and share examples?

Thank you!

same book with different subtitles

I have in hand 2 copies of the same book which are identical except for the subtitle and the addition of a
"Preface to the English Edition" which changes the pagination from 89 pages to 93 pages.  Same ISBN and
publication date.

When checking various internet sources, the one with the subtitle that includes the preface is be
predominant (often listed with the 89 pages in the online bookstores, though).  If I do separate records,
they will get merged.  The English language e-book records are all for the predominant subtitle.  So do I
catalog the predominant one and just include a note about some copies published with a separate subtitle
and lacking the preface?

Thanks,

Nancy

Linked data, bibliographic data, and the nature of being

Re: the announced ALA Pre-Conference on linked data ("Beyond the Looking-Glass..."), is anyone besides
me disturbed by the use of the phrase "ontology development" to describe what is needed to build a
linked-data environment ?

I recall "ontology" vaguely (and imperfectly) from an 8 a.m. philosophy class many years ago, where it
seemed to refer to theories about how we can know what we claim to know.  And it is defined this way in one
source (Merriam-Webster.com/dictionary):

1. A branch of metaphysics concerned with the nature and relations of being.  2. A particular theory about
the nature of being or the kinds of things that have existence.

This leads to a possible conclusion that we are pursuing knowledge in a metaphysical realm where there are
no rules against saying anything we want.  Not beyond the Looking-Glass at all, according to Humpty
Dumpty:  'When I use a word ... it means just what I choose it to mean - neither more nor less.'

At least we need more assurance that the results of these researches have some application in the world we
like to think of as "real."

[Typo of the day for librarians] Alcohl* (for Alcohol, etc.)

"You're an adult. You've got things to do. You don't have time for a rough  
morning. That's where we come in. Pedialyte - See the Lyte."

You read correctly--that's not today's typo. The folks at Abbott  
Laboratories are now pitching their product to grown-ups too, urging us to  
rehydrate after "diarrhea, vomiting, exercise, travel, heat exhaustion,  
occasional alcohol consumption, occasional morning sickness." They've even  
developed some new flavors to appeal to the older crowd.

This advertising campaign is apparently working. According to a recent CBS  
News report, a third of Pedialyte sales currently are to adults seeking to  
cure their hangovers. So if you're planning to indulge tonight, first visit  
your favorite pharmacy to stock up on this not-so "secret to a good  
morning." Who knows--tomorrow you might feel refreshed enough to tackle the  
typo Alcohl*. There are five entries for it in OhioLINK and 71  
English-language results in WorldCat.
