  • Designing A Discovery Interface to Address User Needs: the eXtensible Catalog (XC) Jennifer Bowen University of Rochester Rochester, NYNISO Future of the ILS, Part 2: User InteractionWebinar, May 18, 2011

  • Problem:• User research is of limited value if a library doesn’t have control over its discovery environment• Our solution: – Develop our own software (eXtensible Catalog) – Offer a modular architecture (4 “toolkits”) – Build in tons of configurability – Use established standards and protocols – Give it away (open source)
  • eXtensible Catalog (XC) SoftwareUser Interface Highly customizableMetadata Tools Enables batch cleanup, augmentation, etc.Connectivity Tools Connect to an ILS, etc. 9
  • XC: “Taking Control” of metadataMore Control More Options forover Metadata Customizing the User Interface 10

  • User Research for theeXtensible Catalog 12
  • XC User Research PartnersCornell UniversityOhio State UniversityUniversity of RochesterYale University
  • XC User Research Approach• What articles, books and other resources had researchers used most recently? – How did they know the items existed? – How did they obtain them? – How did they use them?• How do they keep current in their fields?
  • A Few User Research Findings 15
  • User Research Findings• Users want to choose between versions of a resource, see relationships between resources• XC approach: – Underlying XC metadata is based on FRBR model: works, expressions, manifestations, etc. – Use some RDA data elements in FRBR structure – Metadata services to aggregate/group FRBR entities in the User Interface 16
  • User Research Findings• Researchers value scholarly networks – Teacher/student relationships, etc.• XC approach: – Define a local metadata element for thesis advisor – User interface can display it appropriately (NOT as another author!) – Metadata limitations: non-standard, not in our legacy metadata 17
  • User Research Findings• Users have preferred material and format types, depending upon their projects – Show online materials only – Exclude microforms• Users want to know why items appear on a search result list – Show keywords in context 18
  • XC User Interface Demo Translating User Research Findings into XC Functionality 19

  • “View XC Schema” 26
  • XC and RDA 27
  • RDA in the XC Schema• RDA elements can interact with data elements from other schemas using an Application Profile• XC Schema contains a subset of RDA elements• RDA elements help us maintain granularity of MARC data and improve upon it• RDA serves as a “bridge” between MARC- based systems and emerging applications 28
  • Implementing RDA in XC• FRBR-based, not MARC-based• Separate but linked records for FRBR Group 1 entities• XC works alongside a MARC-based ILS• Implements a subset of RDA in a non-MARC environment• Sets stage for other non-MARC RDA implementations, perhaps linked data? 29
  • Benefits of RDA in XC• Enables conversion of MARC fields to RDA elements using bulk processing services• Uses RDA data in a working discovery interface• Integrates with current library systems• Will make library metadata more usable via the open web 30

  • The mission of the Orbis Cascade Alliance is tostrengthen member libraries throughcollaboration in order to support the work of ourstudents, faculty, staff, and researchers. Alliancemembers join together to enhance our services, shareour information resources and expertise, enrichand preserve our collections, and develop library staff tomeet the challenges of a rapidly changinginformation environment.

  • Alliance Libraries 7 Puget Sound 5 20 Cascade Range Eastern 2 Willamette Valley Central 2 Southern
  • Summit catalog allowsstudents, faculty, and staff to easily searchand request library materials owned bymember libraries.The Summit catalog is on the WorldCatplatform. Some members use WorldCat Localand some use their local OPAC with links to theSummit catalog, a Group display ofWorldCat Local. May 18 NISO webinar on the future of the ILS: User Interaction
  • You and I may call it a discoveryplatform, but to many of them, it’s the library catalog... and it doesn’t function like it used to. May 18 NISO webinar on the future of the ILS: User Interaction
  • Many features and elements ofWorldCat Local did work exactlyas designed, it’s just that therewere more types of users and use scenarios than anyone originally thought. May 18 NISO webinar on the future of the ILS: User Interaction
  • "Because Google and Amazoncan do it..." is a reasonable user expectation for WorldCat Local May 18 NISO webinar on the future of the ILS: User Interaction
  • Communications mechanisms • WorldCat Discovery Day Symposium • Weekly update • Newsletters • Individual site usability testing (submitted to Alliance for review and cross-referencing) • Alliance email lists • OCLC email lists • OCLC usability focus group • OCLC usability testing (recent Usabilla test) • User group meetings - virtual and at ALA • SPOT (Summit Planning and Operations Team) • SPOT representatives May 18 NISO webinar on the future of the ILS: User Interaction
