    MetaData, MetaKoha MetaData, MetaKoha Presentation Transcript

    • MetaData, MetaKoha
      • Galen Charlton
      • 2011 KUDOS Conference
      • 3 May 2011
    • One problem
      • MARC must die!
      • To which MARC responds, “I’m not dead yet!”
    • And another challenge
      • Cataloging must be attend to both the present and the future
      • Records must continue to be pushed out
      • But the current model is changing
    • What’s coming
      • RDA
        • But what is RDA? Gloss on MARC21?
        • Or Linked Data?
    • Non-MARC
      • RDA will eventually inspire new serializations
      • Meanwhile, libraries have growing piles of non-MARC metadata
    • Usability
      • Usability matters, and not just for patrons
      • Catalogers have to handle a lot of records
      • ... a LOT of records
    • Editor
      • Time for experimentation
      • Time to better support more types of users
        • We have fast-add
        • We must also support the “power cataloger”
    • Record(s) management
      • Different types
      • Large quantities
      • Record improvement
      • Workflow
    • MetaKoha
      • What use is sharing the source if we don’t also share the data?
    • MetaKoha
      • Share records
      • More importantly, share changes to records
        • Remember Ian Walls’ Git presentation yesterday?
          • Imagine that applied to cataloging
    • A call to the community
      • Integrated metasearch
      • Integrated support for non-MARC metadata
      • Record sharing
    • An IDE for catalogers
      • Change tracking
      • Workflow tracking – send this record for review, get a sign-off
      • Cataloger productivity
    • Sharing ideas
      • Flat-text editor (Evergreen, also something Jesse Weaver was working on a couple years ago)
      • MARC framework information (tag tables mostly have the same information for everybody)
    • Specifics
      • Updated MARC21 frameworks
      • Indexes for RDA: 336, 337, 338
      • Support for alternative metadata editors
        • This also affects search
    • Thanks
