Part 1: Concepts and Techniques of Library Science

  1. 1. Concepts andTechniques of Library Science or.. How library science can improve your life and the lives of your customers Liz Fraley,Single-Sourcing Solutions 7/14/2014TC Dojo Open Session 1
  2. 2. We’ve broken this presentation into three parts. Today is Part 1: Introduction to Library Science A bit of warning… This presentation is typically 60-90 minutes which precedes a 2-day workshop that we give to companies when preparing to help them develop their metadata strategy 7/14/2014 2
  3. 3. Here’s the situation • We have content. They want it. • They have content. We want it. • How does anyone find what they need?
  4. 4. All we need is… • Metadata • Classification • Taxonomy • Categorization • Cataloguers • Curation • Faceted search • Filtering • Big Data • SubjectScheme Right?
  5. 5. Isn’t there an easier way? That is so much work…
  6. 6. Library Science is Information Science • Librarians are the original information architects – Keepers of content – Curate content – Preserve content – Organize content – Make content findable – Help people find content units • Ultimately, Librarians make sure people can find answers to to their questions Photo by: QuartierLatin1968
  7. 7. Library Science Teaches… • Facilitating content discovery is all about creating and using effective access points Picture by: pathfinderlinden
  8. 8. Access Points • An access point is anything that you would want to use as way to fetch a certain piece of information • An Access Point can be: – a search term (keyword) – search phrase – something as specific as a product number or another coded number that identifies a smaller point (clause in a contract) – a date (everything by a person in a certain time period) – a title – an author – a company
  9. 9. Then Add: Scope • Scope is a way to break up data so you can pull it out and group it in ways that are useful to the users – Children’s materials – Fiction – Non-fiction – Spanish • You don’t necessarily care what the bucket is, you just want a bucket
