    WorldCat represents a “collective collection” of the world’s libraries, built through the contributions of librarians, expanded and enhanced through individual, regional and national programs.

    http://www.oclc.org/worldcat/community.en.html
    WorldCat is the international, online catalog that helps OCLC members share resources, reduce costs and increase visibility and impact in the communities they serve and on the Web. WorldCat is cooperatively built and managed by a dedicated, expert community of librarians, OCLC staff and content providers who collaborate to improve the integrity of, and access to, the “collective collection” of the world’s libraries.
  • Searches via ADGC default to Art Libraries Scope. WorldCat and the OCLC central article index are searched but only those bibliographic records or serial titles with holdings from Art Libraries are included in the result set. The scope can be broadened to World-Wide (all holdings) or narrowed. The current narrowing is by region but this is tailorable and other narrower scopes are possible.
  • This includes titles that where the metadata has been made available to OCLC for inclusion in the Central Article Index. This slide does not say that any of these subscriptions are included in the Central Article index, it just indicates the percentage of the serials within a subscription that are included.
  • Some subscriptions do not require authentication for access to the metadata but require OCLC to report usage. The metadata is included in the search results but access to full text may be limited by IP address range testing, for example.
  • A group subscription is required for some titles where the metadata is the subscription. As ADGC is a publically available resource it is a commercial challenge to negotiate a goup subscription. We are working on this with a prioritorised set of titles.
  • The next set of slides indicates the enhancements that will be made to the user interface. The new interface is due for installation in October 2014.
  • There are several logos being evaluated, this is a prototype.
  • The current interface requires use of the back arrow to access the result set. With the new interface, the result set will be always available.
  • http://oclc.org/worldcat-discovery/features.en.html . This URL gives a summary of the interface improvements in development. We are working towards a knowledge card similar to the Google Knowledge card.
  • This is a screen produced for the specification of the new work level display. Existing work clusters are maintained by a common work ID within each bibliographic record. There are also sub work clusters that identify identical content (regardless of format) and identical records catalogued in different languages of cataloguing. Work level records have been generated that includes authors, titles, subjects, content and summary notes, all language tagged. An Iceland Fisherman, original in French displayed in English UI with Translations table.
  • We have started to examine auction catalogues. From just 2 titles (admittedly not a statistical sample) we have found each has 5 bibliographic records that failed to be identified as the same work by the work algorithms due to different cataloguing styles. The example above indicates 4 different records created by members of the ADGC and one other. The creation of name authority records for the major auction houses will help.

    Scipio is an initiative of a group of art libraries (mostly North American) which cooperate to generate bibliographic records. The first line of this table is a Scipio record.
  • We originally thought that the main culprit of noise was from university art libraries which did not have a separate symbol from their main institutional library. However, by examining noise, it seems that serial package subscriptions are producing the most noise. We are investigating ways to relegate noise to the end of the result set – by classification or serial title, etc.
