Nettie Legace (NISO), Emma Booth (University of Manchester Library), Concetta La Spada (Cambridge University Press), Diane Rasmussen Pennington (Strathclyde iSchool) High quality and accurate bibliographic metadata is an essential part of the supply chain for books and e-books as it enables titles to be easily and reliably identified, selected, and accessed. Yet libraries and content providers have worked for years to find common ground across stakeholder groups regarding metadata requirements. This breakout session will describe two new efforts to reach consensus: Metadata Profiles from the NAG Quality of Shelf Ready Metadata Project, and the NISO Recommended Practice on, E-Book Bibliographic Metadata Requirements. Both projects demonstrate the importance of developing a shared understanding between publishers, vendors and libraries regarding the creation and sharing of quality metadata so that it has value throughout the supply chain.

Metadata Quality: Why it Matters
Metadata has always been at the heart of library services
because they need it to describe their resources for end-user
discovery and collection management.
Bascones, M., & Staniforth, A. (2018)
Data quality is an especially important issue where metadata
records for resource discovery are concerned.
Resources can be rendered essentially invisible due to poor data.
Pomerantz, J. (2015)

  • 4. NAG Quality of Shelf-Ready Metadata Survey Data from 50 Higher Education libraries in the UK & Ireland to inform metadata specifications for: The Joint Consortia Framework Agreement for the Supply of Books, E-books, Standing Orders and Related Materials. https://nag.org.uk/publications/ @UKLibrariesNAG
  • 5. Commonly Encountered Errors in Vendor-Supplied Metadata Fig.14. Respondents’ commonly encountered issues with shelf-ready records received from Suppliers NAG (2020) Quality of Shelf-Ready Metadata, p.17.
  • 6. Metadata Quality: Why it Matters Metadata has always been at the heart of library services because they need it to describe their resources for end-user discovery and collection management. Bascones, M., & Staniforth, A. (2018) Data quality is an especially important issue where metadata records for resource discovery are concerned. Resources can be rendered essentially invisible due to poor data. Pomerantz, J. (2015)
  • 7. Negative Impact of Poor Quality Metadata Inadequate search and retrieval experience: → Low usage of resources. → Poor user-opinion of content-provision. → Poor return-on-investment in resources. → Detrimental to collection management. Hidden costs for libraries: → Manual correction/upgrade of metadata – duplicated effort. → Extra support for library-users to help with search and retrieval. → Inability to participate in metadata-sharing initiatives (data silo). → Barriers to participation in resource-sharing programmes (e.g. ILL).
  • 8. http://man.ac.uk/RsMU55 Richer metadata fuels discovery and innovation. Connected metadata bridges the gaps between systems and communities. Reusable, open metadata eliminates duplication of effort. Mitchell, D., & Counsell, F. (2018)

  • 25. Bibliographic metadata quality evaluation framework (Stuart, 2017)
  • 27. Cataloguing Code of Ethics (Cataloguing Ethics Steering Committee, January 2021) ‘The term cataloguing ethics is defined as a set of principles and values that provide an intentional decision-making framework for those who work in cataloguing or metadata positions. A subset of critical librarianship, critical cataloguing focuses on understanding and changing how knowledge organisations codify systems of oppression. The term cataloguer is used as shorthand for referring to anyone involved in cataloguing and metadata work.’ ‘Metadata creation is an ongoing process involving work that is wide- ranging, collaborative, and in a constant state of change. Tension between change and status quo creates opportunity to confront ethical issues within our community of practice.’
  • 28. Reimagine descriptive workflows (April 2022)  Power and bias are inherent in our systems (DDC, LCSH)  White supremacy: “The January 2021 Cataloguing Code of Ethics, reflecting the views of professional library associations and practitioners from the United States, Canada, and the United Kingdom, identifies white supremacy as one of the factors that influences cataloging standards and practice” (p. 15)  Power-holding institutions  Relinquishing power  Building trust  Framework for guidance includes:  Organisational shifts  Operational workflows  Professional and personal development
  • 29. Decolonising the library catalogue: Cartonera Collection “How can we enhance accessibility? How far can we go? Can we be fair to all the agents involved in the creation of a book, regardless of their place in the ‘canon’? Can we reflect the nature of a publication through its bibliographic record? How can the vocabularies we use influence accessibility and representation?” (Cambridge University Decolonising Through Critical Librarianship Group, 2022, p. 179).
  • 30. (Meta)data alignment as a unifying theory of resource discovery (Macgregor, 2020)
  • 31. Linked data and persistent identifiers (Cousijn et al., 2021)  Awareness of/support for/consistency of linked data implementations (Cagnazzo & Rasmussen Pennington, 2019)  Can persistent identifiers mitigate the problem of broken links?
