  2. 2. My yellow brick road <ul><li>Early 2007: the world is black and white </li></ul><ul><ul><li>And I’m somewhat pessimistic about the future of cataloguing </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>And the emerging information Dark Age … </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><li>Mid 2007: the wind begins to blow </li></ul><ul><ul><li>SLIC’n’Flickr; NLS’n’YouTube </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Theme for my workshop for Croatian archives, libraries and museums is … </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Web2.0 stuff </li></ul></ul></ul>
  3. 3. Thunder and (en)lightening <ul><li>Me: I can do the Flickr and YouTube bit, plus a Google maps mash-up </li></ul><ul><li>Co-presenter at workshop (younger (much!), slimmer (a lot!): I can do a basic introduction to other Web2.0 stuff like del.ic.io.us, Facebook, etc. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>And I get blown away … </li></ul></ul>
  4. 4. Not in Kansas … <ul><li>So at the next CDLR staff meeting </li></ul><ul><ul><li>I enthusiastically suggest that we should all be getting engaged with this stuff </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>And the Director agrees! </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>And then the rest of the team (looking a bit bored) point out that they’ve all been on Facebook for months … </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><li>And then I realize … </li></ul>

  6. 6. Collective metadata <ul><li>Today’s presentations will focus on metadata for information retrieval </li></ul><ul><ul><li>And most of it will be familiar to library cataloguers, even if the labels are different </li></ul></ul><ul><li>That metadata, like those who create it, will be associated with specific organisations or individuals </li></ul><ul><li>But what about metadata and Web2.0 at a higher level of granularity, and, in turn, cataloguers acting collectively? </li></ul>
  7. 7. A collective mash-up <ul><li>Location metadata from collection-level descriptions in the Scottish Collections Network (SCONE) </li></ul><ul><li>Mashed with Google Maps </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Using the Application Program Interface </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Public, free </li></ul></ul></ul>
  8. 8. Google map of all Scotland’s archives, libraries and museums

  14. 15. Web3.0 <ul><li>If we can tell computers that: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Library.title = Archive.title = Museum.caption = Bibliotheque.titre = MARC.245 = <title> </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>“ Jane Smith” (writer) <> “Jane Smith” (musician) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>“ Economics” = “330” > “ 交換率” </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Then Web3.0 = Cataloguable Web = Semantic Web </li></ul>
