  11. 11. Why Share?<br />Sharing benefits users<br />One-stop searching (maybe)<br />Ability to create customized searches of specific domains<br />Brings together distributed collections<br />Sharing benefits your institution<br />Increases exposure of collections<br />Broadens user base<br />Potentially adds collaboration opportunities<br />We can no longer assume that users will come through the front door—sharing metadata gets us “in the flow”<br />Thinking about sharing now will help your future system migration<br />3/18/2010<br />VRA 2010<br />
  12. 12. Sharing allows our users to help us<br />3/18/2010<br />VRA 2010<br />

  14. 14. <title>My resource</title><date>04<br />Sharing metadata: Data aggregation<br />The user searches a pre-aggregated database of metadata from diverse sources.<br />Mill?<br />For Example: Search engines, union catalogs, OAI PMH, RSS<br />3/18/2010<br />VRA 2010<br />

  16. 16. Shareable Metadata…<br />Is quality metadata <br />Promotes search interoperability - “the ability to perform a search over diverse sets of metadata records and obtain meaningful results” (Priscilla Caplan)<br />Is human understandable outside of its local context<br />Is useful outside of its local context<br />Preferably is machine processable<br />3/18/2010<br />VRA 2010<br />
  17. 17. Shareable Metadata as a View<br />Metadata is not monolithic<br />Metadata should be a view projected from a single information object<br />Create multiple views appropriate for groups of important sharing venues<br />Depends on:<br />Use<br />Audience<br />3/18/2010<br />VRA 2010<br />
  18. 18. The Cs & Ss of Shareable Metadata<br />Content<br />Coherence<br />Context<br />Communication<br />Consistency<br />Conformance to<br />Standards<br />3/18/2010<br />VRA 2010<br />
  19. 19. LC MODS Record for Adams Image<br />3/18/2010<br />VRA 2010<br />Represents one specific “view” of this resource.<br />
  20. 20. Special Sharing Challenges for the VR Community<br />Documentary approach vs. art approach to description<br />Work vs. Image distinction<br />Original works vs. copies<br />De-duplication is hard!<br />OAI-PMH data providers not available in most commonly-used systems<br />Many VR professionals don’t have access to a great deal of institutional IT support<br />Need sharing for both end-user access and copy cataloging<br />UCAI effort uncovered many of these challenges, and others<br />3/18/2010<br />VRA 2010<br />Look for more ways to try, regardless!<br />
  21. 21. Basic metadata sharing workflow<br />Transform<br />Plan<br />Choose standards for native metadata<br />Perform conceptual mapping<br />Create<br />Share<br />Assess<br />Implement sharing protocol<br />See who is collecting your metadata<br />Who to share with?<br />Perform technical mapping<br />Create metadata (thinking about shareability)<br />Communicate with aggregators<br />Review your metadata in aggregations<br />Choose shared metadata formats<br />Validate transformed metadata<br />Write metadata creation guidelines<br />Test shared metadata with protocol conformance tools<br />3/18/2010<br />VRA 2010<br />
