UKSG Conference 2017 Breakout - KBART recommendations: challenges and achievements - Magaly Bascones

340 views

Published on

This session will comprise a talk with a panel of speakers
looking at KBART: seven years later (since the publication
of the first set of recommendations up to today). The panel
will discuss the changes on the e-resources metadata
landscape, the benefits of KBART and the challenges of
its implementation. Today poor metadata in the electronic
resources supply chain is still a problem. The panel will
use practical examples to explain how metadata creation,
consumption and usage are marked by the constant
requirement of finding the balance between available
resources (technical and human) and end user discoverability
needs. The KBART Standing Committee sees the
implementation of KBART recommendations as a community
effort from a range of stakeholders (content providers,
knowledge bases, link resolvers and librarians).

  3. 3. “What options do we have for speeding the grindingly slow process of getting our metadata in order, and improving systems interoperability? Boring, but really necessary.” Ann Rossiter Society of College, National and University Libraries (SCONUL) UKSG 2016 12/04/2017 KBART: 10 years later
  4. 4. 12/04/2017 KBART: 10 years later 4 UKSG 2007 research report, “link resolvers and the serials supply chain” lack of awareness of OpenURL's capabilities impacting the quality and timeliness of data provided to knowledge bases undermining the potential of this sophisticated technology

  8. 8. Publishers and content providers are providing significant metadata. Some of them still do not provide even basic KBARTish formatted files. Metadata supply chain 12/04/2017 KBART: 10 years later 8 aggregators
  9. 9. Metadata supply chain 12/04/2017 KBART: 10 years later 9 IEEE KB+ BACON -ABES ERDB-JP aggregators OUP, HUP, Project Muse, Greenleaf
  10. 10. Metadata supply chain 12/04/2017 KBART: 10 years later 10 aggregators System vendors: their systems are unable to process them fully and their discovery layers do not display the enriched data. Consortia: good metadata is not on the negotiating table
  11. 11. “What options do we have for speeding the grindingly slow process of getting our metadata in order, and improving systems interoperability? Boring, but really necessary.” Ann Rossiter Society of College, National and University Libraries (SCONUL) UKSG 2016 » Librarians and their negotiating agents should bring metadata to the negotiating table » The library community should strongly support good examples of content providers and a service at the national level » System vendors should assume their role as part of the digital transformation within the industry, and should share their responsibility with their customers 12/04/2017 KBART: 10 years later
  12. 12. 12/04/2017 KBART: 10 years later Why KBART? Adoption of Knowledgebases And RelatedTools (KBART) Recommended Practice gives content providers a single source of data to distribute to content aggregators, knowledgebase (KB) vendors, and libraries. KBART data is a universally-accepted data format that is human-readable for marketing and product information purposes as well as machine-readable to facilitate automated delivery of data to KB vendors. Putting your data into KBART format makes it easier for librarians to use your content and for library users to find and access that same content on your platform, increasing your site traffic and ROI for libraries. KBART Endorsement The KBART Standing Committee members are information professionals from content providers, knowledgebase vendors, and librarians, who are happy to help you learn KBART as you develop your data feeds and address any questions you may have about the Recommended Practice. We encourage you to submit sample data to the Standing Committee (kbart-sc@list.niso.org) for review and feedback to ensure that it will meet the needs of your customers and work optimally with vendors' products. If your data meets the guidelines of KBART, the Standing Committee will endorse your files. Being able to say that your files are KBART-endorsed will create confidence in the quality of your metadata to those who use your files.
