    • Ontologies for music from a digital library practitioner’s perspective Jenn Riley Indiana University Digital Library Program IAML Annual Conference June 19, 2006
    • A vision for Web-based music ontologies       Machine-readable Multilingual Faceted structure Wide coverage Created and updated quickly and easily Moving the catalog from just a “finding” system to a “research” system
    • Machine-readable   Allows integration into software systems Assists cataloging    Assists searching and browsing      Eases data entry Enforces data integrity Lead-in term mapping Narrower term expansion Broadening or refining a result set Related term suggestions Requires vocabularies to adhere to defined structure
    • Multilingual    Possible with the move from a heading as an identifier to a transparent ID If desired, implementations could choose a preferred language, perhaps even for individual terms The developing Library of Congress/OCLC Virtual International Authority File may be a good model
    • Faceted structure  Should separate out:         Instrumentation Genre Topic Language Geography Etc… Form/genre/style will be problematic Necessary for:      Building “helpful” cataloging applications Data quality control More powerful end-user searching End-user browsing by category Faceted structure may imply postcoordination
    • Wide coverage   Will be of interest and utility to communities beyond music libraries (including scholars) Must include:     Non-Western musics “Popular” music Etc… Allow evolution over time to respond to changes in musical style, knowledge, and scholarship
    • Ease of creation and maintenance  Creation     Make use of existing data Some facets may already exist from other communities Experiment with automated methods to suggest terms & structure, then editing by experts Maintenance    Allow easy integration of new terms into the existing syndetic structure Networked environment makes it more feasible to maintain one central copy of data to which all applications connect Should explore open models allowing contributions by many communities
    • Moving from a finding system to a research system    Moving beyond just bibliographic data — the work, not just the publication Enabling new sorts of discovery Not just vocabularies:     Related works Gender of composer Date/place of composition Etc.!
