  • 31. www.bl.uk Cataloguing Issues: • Important to note that SNAC based on real catalogue data - warts and all: – all normalisation automatic – no extra detailed cataloguing or transcription • But portals such as SNAC need rich, consistent and well structured metadata so compromises...
  • 32. www.bl.uk Legacy Data • SNAC can’t use the specificity the Library gives for role in creation of material – simply ‘creator’ not ‘author’ and ‘editor’ etc • Library CPF authority data has deficiencies: – Duplicate records – No life dates – No links to NRA or VIAF – No links to places or subjects – Persistent identifiers in development • So work to do!
  • 33. www.bl.uk New Cataloguing • The Library’s new cataloguing better for sharing with portals such as SNAC • Developing authority file descriptions unaffordable – not MPLP? • No – a workflow rather than a resource issue: – Necessary research done anyway during cataloguing – Biographies can focus on material being catalogued – not necessarily whole life history – Save thinking time in forming ‘perfect’ name by links to open data such as VIAF
  • 34. www.bl.uk Any Questions?
