  8. 8. What is the NBK data being used for? » The NBK is a bibliographic database, which will underpin a suite of enhanced Jisc library services » Interfaces will include: › Resource discovery (beta coming Jan 2018) › Collections Management (testing will start 2018) › Cataloguing/record download (testing will start 2018) » We are investigating how the data in the NBK can link to other Jisc services 20/10/2017 Title of presentation (Insert > Header & Footer > Slide > Footer > Apply to all) 8

  12. 12. When can you see your data? End January 2018: beta resource discovery released › Will contain data from limited number of libraries (target: 75) › Functionality/appearance will not be that of the final interface › Will be open for anyone to use › We will be asking contributing libraries to look at their data – And volunteers for some systematic testing 20/10/2017 Title of presentation (Insert > Header & Footer > Slide > Footer > Apply to all) 12 nbk.copac@jisc.ac.uk
  13. 13. Collection management » We will start to point a test version of the CCMTools interface at the new NBK database winter 2017/2018 » This will be made available for testing to a selection of volunteers, over 2018 » The live version of CCMTools will continue to use the Copac data until 2019 20/10/2017 Title of presentation (Insert > Header & Footer > Slide > Footer > Apply to all) 13
  14. 14. Cataloguing database » We are currently investigating the differing needs of data presentation for resource discovery and cataloguing » The OCLC Master Record Model means that the data in the NBK cataloguing database is likely to be presented differently from that in the current RLUK database › Cataloguers may be presented with a consolidated MARC record instead of individual MARC records › We are investigating the impact of this and potential responses › Testing will happen with volunteers during 2018 20/10/2017 Title of presentation (Insert > Header & Footer > Slide > Footer > Apply to all) 14
  15. 15. High quality current library data is critical to the success of the NBK

  17. 17. 1. Data re-use and sharing 2. Scope issues and what is feasible 3. Communications and benefits realisation 4. National co-ordination of activity Questions & issues – October 2017 What is the current state of commentary on the NBK?
  18. 18. 1. Data reuse and sharing • What about the sharing of the data – how is that going to work and are Jisc going to try and make some money from supplying MARC data to 3rd parties? • Will 3rd parties make money by acquiring the data and sharing it? • Where does the liability lie if someone gets upset about the data being made available? What is the current state of commentary on the NBK?
  19. 19. 2. Scope issues and what is feasible • What about serials data? It would be good for the NBK to eliminate the need for libraries to submit subsets of data to different aggregations. But isn’t it way too ambitious to try and deal with monograph and journal data? • What do you mean by usage data? • How is the NBK going to acquire comprehensive and reliable eBook metadata? What is the current state of commentary on the NBK?
  20. 20. 3. Communications and Benefits realisation • “Now we understand what it is, we see the value. Previous communication was riddled with library jargon (including NBK title itself) and was unhelpful for a wider audience.’ (IT Directors) • “You are talking a lot about enabling collection management – but that’s of very little interest to my organisation – why should we get involved and support the NBK?” (Teaching focused academic libraries) What is the current state of commentary on the NBK?
  21. 21. • Increased discoverability of, and opportunity to showcase, special collections. • Increased discoverability of all library resources through Jisc NBK Discovery, WorldCat, and search engines. • Reports about data quality allowing libraries to focus their efforts on data improvement where needed • Potential to have ‘enhanced’ data pushed back to libraries • Possibility of aggregated usage data to inform purchasing decisions • Potential to link with JUSP and KB+ to help manage e-resources • Allow university presses to contribute their data, widening audience and impact • Potential for consortial interfaces, without libraries needing to procure & manage a shared catalogue • Will include OA material, allowing libraries to more easily see if there is an OA version of a work before purchasing Aside from Collection Management …
  22. 22. 4. National coordination of activity • How will the (meta)data in the NBK reflect national and/or regional retention policies or agreements and how might it then safeguard against unwitting disposal of last copies? • What are the next steps now we’ve had the White Rose Libraries report and the UKRR-M (IPL) report? What is the current state of commentary on the NBK?
  23. 23. Recommendations Share a version of this report more widely 1. Develop workflow guidance and best practice to help libraries export data to external catalogues 2. External catalogues should indicate the completeness and currency of contributing library holdings 3. Develop guidance to help libraries understand the impact that metadata quality has on matching records 4. Investigate ways to help libraries improve the quality of their metadata in catalogue records 5. Develop advice and guidance for libraries using collection analysis tools 6. Develop advice and guidance for libraries embarking on collaborative collection management initiatives 7. Libraries to contribute to the future development of collection analysis tools Report available at: http://blog.ccm.copac.jisc.ac.uk/2017/09/20/white-rose-libraries-understanding- collection-overlap/ Understanding Collections Overlap: Final Report
