ISBD Review Group’s Material Designations Study Group recommended <br />to develop an XML schema for ISBD, and to start researching into "reviewing ISBD concepts and the standard itself by the application of web technologies, and eventually of evolving the standard into a tool open to the Semantic Web technologies and services“<br /> The 2-year project proposed by the Study Group was accepted in 2008 by the IFLA Professional Board; 3rd year accepted (2011)<br />3<br />

  14. 14. Background, activities, plans<br />The main goals of the ISBD/XML SG’s project were:<br />to build a consensus on the raison d'être of moving the ISBD into the web environment, and define possible uses of such a product, <br />to develop ISBDXML schema, <br />to ensure the interoperability of the product with similar ones such as MARC/DCXML schemas, at least at the conceptual level, within the current Semantic Web technologies and services, <br />to liaise with relevant constituencies in the field, and<br />to propose further development of software tools and services. <br />11/03/2011<br />25 Feb 2011, National Library of Scotland, Edinburgh<br />9<br />
  15. 15. Background, activities, plans<br />Anticipated results of the project were primarily the (re)positioning of the IFLA standard and its values of enabling provision and (re)use of authoritative structured bibliographic information in the Internet environment. <br />The anticipated beneficiaries and stakeholders will be all interested in producing/sharing/(re)using authoritative bibliographic information in the web environment.<br />11/03/2011<br />25 Feb 2011, National Library of Scotland, Edinburgh<br />10<br />
  16. 16. Background, activities, plans<br />The expected outcomes were <br />to document on the use and application of the ISBDXML, <br />the ISBDXML schema, and <br />to document on the directions of further actions to position ISBD within the Semantic Web environment<br />11/03/2011<br />25 Feb 2011, National Library of Scotland, Edinburgh<br />11<br />
  17. 17. Background, activities, plans<br />IFLA Conference, Milan, Italy, 2009: ISBD/XML SG, 1st Meeting: re-direction of the project goal – from XML to RDF<br /><ul><li>G. Dunsire recommendation: to bypass the general XML mark-up and go directly to an RDF/XML environment which would situate ISBD within the Semantic Web framework
  18. 18. Goals revised: (2) develop an ISBD RDF/XML schema, (3) ensure the interoperability of the product with similar ones such as MARC/DCXML schemas, at least at the conceptual level, within the current semantic web technologies and services </li></ul>The objective was further detailed with the tasks of analysing and defining the functionalities of ISBD elements in relation to FRBR, (UNI)MARC, and DC/XML schemas, new cataloguing rules such as RDA, REICAT and the Finnish cataloguing rules, analysing and supporting the concept of linked data, and promoting its relevance to vendors in support of the development of new generation library information systems<br />11/03/2011<br />25 Feb 2011, National Library of Scotland, Edinburgh<br />12<br />

  20. 20. Background, activities, plans<br />IFLA Congress, Gothenburg, Sweden, 2010<br /> Preliminary representation of ISBD elements in Resource Description Framework (RDF) in Open Metadata Registry, based on the ISBD consolidated edition, draft of 2010-05-10 Open Metadata Registry<br />11/03/2011<br />25 Feb 2011, National Library of Scotland, Edinburgh<br />14<br />
  21. 21. Background, activities, plans<br />The representation of ISBD elements in RDF: representation and usage constraints, such as mandatory/optional, order and repeatability of elements, and accepted to<br />express ISBD elements as RDF properties and vocabularies,  revision of ISBD elements / (RDF) properties<br />express the metadata record structure as a Dublin Core Application Profile (DCAP), and <br />express metadata output format, including punctuation, as an XSLT<br />11/03/2011<br />25 Feb 2011, National Library of Scotland, Edinburgh<br />15<br />

  25. 25. Background, activities, plans<br />To finalize the representation of the ISBD based on final consolidated edition (to be published in 2011) in RDF <br />To update the application profile (and the XSLT display format for punctuation)<br />Set guidelines for the treatment of translations in Open Metadata Registry (Spanish, Croatian, etc.)<br />To discuss the representation of UNIMARC bibliographic format content designation in RDF<br />To monitor the integration of the ISBD RDF representations with the IFLA infrastructure<br />11/03/2011<br />25 Feb 2011, National Library of Scotland, Edinburgh<br />19<br />
  26. 26. WHY???<br /><ul><li>Authoritative & trustworthy bibliographic and authority data in the Semantic Web environment!!!  UBC
  27. 27. IFLA standards branding®
  28. 28. Libraries:
  29. 29. transformation of their catalogues into RDF triples to contribute to, and take advantage of the Semantic Web
  30. 30. “bibliographic” triples linked to triples from encyclopedias, dictionaries, and other reference works, booksellers, publishers, and other agents in the bibliographic universe to enhance information services
  31. 31. internal processing: to check the integrity of the record itself by identifying missing elements, sequencing errors, etc.</li></ul>11/03/2011<br />25 Feb 2011, National Library of Scotland, Edinburgh<br />20<br />
  32. 32. WHY???<br /><ul><li>Properties from the ISBD namespace can be re-used in other application profiles and mixed with elements from other namespaces
  33. 33. End-users: providing means to librarians for preparing their metadata for an environment in which users will be enabled to perform tasks according to their specific needs, and not necessarily only those traditionally envisioned by librarians</li></ul>11/03/2011<br />25 Feb 2011, National Library of Scotland, Edinburgh<br />21<br />
