Using date in collaboration: Experiences from the Maine Shared Collections Strategy

  1. 1. Matthew Revitt, Maine Shared CollectionsStrategy Program ManagerUsing data in collaboration: Experiencesfrom the Maine Shared CollectionsStrategyMatthew Revitt,MSCS Program Manager
  2. 2.  9 Maine Shared Collections Strategy (MSCS) partnerscome together in an effort to create a strategy for theshared management of print collections in the State. Collaborate to make decisions about the storage,retention, and preservation of print materials (bothbooks and journals) as well as looking for ways tointegrate digital editions into a state-wide catalog. IMLS supported projectMSCS 101Matthew Revitt,MSCS Program Manager
  3. 3. Project objectives Workable strategy for stewardship of the major print collections inMaine Analyze print monographs for duplication & usage Identify digital surrogates and provide access in union catalog Identify long-term retention commitments from libraries Implementation of on-demand services Electronic- and print-on-demand options in catalogs Define sustainable business model for beyond grant & partners Financial model Governance structure Memorandum Of UnderstandingMatthew Revitt,MSCS Program Manager
  4. 4.  Top level: What monographs should be designated for long-term retention? What is an equitable and/or common-sense distribution ofretention responsibilities? What monographs are candidates for incorporating intoPOD/EOD services (via local or shared catalogs) by virtue ofHathiTrust or InternetArchive public domain material? What monograph copies (by library) could optionally bedeselected, once retention decisions have been finalized?What do we want to learn from thedata?Matthew Revitt,MSCS Program Manager
  5. 5.  Specifically: How many copies of a particular work are owned by partnerlibraries? How many of those are circulating copies? How often has the title circulated?What was the last circulationdate? How many titles/copies are uniquely held in the group? InMaine? InWorldCat? How do subject strengths compare across the group? Which titles are represented in HathiTrust, InternetArchive Overlap between general collections and special collections Others to be determined from the group’s combined data setWhat do we want to learn from thedata?Matthew Revitt,MSCS Program Manager
  6. 6.  Data elements:Data required for analysisMatthew Revitt,MSCS Program Manager Item record number Created date Barcode Itype (value in the item thatdefines how it circulates) Volume and copy Item call number Location Total checkout and total renewal Year to date circulation Last year circulation Last checkin Out date Last out date Reserve notes Internal use count Icode2 (Contributed to unioncatalog) Circulation Status
  7. 7.  Dirty data issue – required OCLC reclamation before can accuratelycompare Approximately 3.9 million records sent More involved process than originally thought, but successfullycleaned up libraries’ records OCLC circulation data report – data inconsistencies Constant change – Ongoing library withdrawals & introduction ofninth libraryIssues with the data setMatthew Revitt,MSCS Program Manager
  8. 8.  Importance of collections analysis tools for heavy lifting -Journey from DIY, viaWCA to SCS/DIY DIY: Not feasible to develop local collection analysis system OCLCWorldCat CollectionsAnalysisTool - unable to meetMSCS needs & delays in analytics product Investigate other products Sustainable Collections Services (SCS) only could meetMSCS requirements -Tailored reports & consulting supportHelp, we can’t do this alone!Matthew Revitt,MSCS Program Manager
  9. 9.  Using the MSCS record set SCS: Filtered out-of scope bibliographic records including: Government Documents, non-monographicmaterial, Non-language material, non-print resources, records missing OCLC numbers,Bibliographic/author mismatches with OCLC and multiple OCLC numbers per record Eliminated duplicate bibliographic records Normalized call numbers Eliminated trailing spaces in control numbers Validated OCLC numbers Matched bibliographic records on OCLC numbers (with title string check) LCCN/title-string lookups for records lacking OCLC numbers Identified and accommodated unusual implementations of MARC Mapped item-level data and interpret codes Provided Dewey Decimal numbers for records that lacked them SCS matched titles to external data sources - OCLCWorldCat (US and StateHoldings), HathiTrust Public Domain and In-Copyright items and InternetArchive (a first for SCS)SCS dataMatthew Revitt,MSCS Program Manager

  18. 18.  Begin with titles held by only 1-2 partners.The following criteria formaking decisions on these titles were developed: Analyze and take action only on pre-2003 copies Retain the copies if any circulation or internal use Retain material that falls into local protection categories (SpecificMaine items) even if no circulation Retain Special Collections/Archives copies even if no circulation Retain materials on course reserves even if no circulation Retain unique in OCLC (only 0-9 copies in OCLC) even if nocirculation Compare remaining 0 circulation copies with both HathiTrust andInternet ArchiveMSCS retention criteriaMatthew Revitt,MSCS Program Manager
