  1. 2. XC Metadata Issues <ul><li>Combining digital and non-digital collections </li></ul><ul><li>Supporting multiple schemas </li></ul><ul><li>Selecting base schemas for XC </li></ul><ul><li>Enabling, maintaining FRBR, facets </li></ul><ul><li>Sharing, harvesting, preserving </li></ul>
  2. 3. Combining digital and non-digital collections <ul><li>Schemas will vary according to </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Definitions of data elements </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Content standards for recording elements </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Granularity, specificity </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Quality (accuracy, consistency, etc.) </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Avoid “dumbing down” </li></ul><ul><ul><li>metadata stored within the system </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>results display and navigation </li></ul></ul>
  3. 4. Supporting multiple schemas <ul><li>Support for most commonly-used schemas </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Survey </li></ul></ul><ul><li>By “support” we mean: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Import and mapping to internal schema </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Preserving original metadata for export </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Additional schemas: component partners </li></ul>
  4. 5. Selecting base schemas for XC <ul><li>MODS and MADS </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Retain richness of MARC data </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>More granularity than Dublin Core </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Authority control </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Support from LC </li></ul></ul><ul><li>METS </li></ul><ul><li>How will these schemas work for non-digital resources? </li></ul>
  5. 6. Enabling FRBR <ul><li>Name disambiguation/authority control </li></ul><ul><ul><li>RIT software engineering project </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Grouping by works </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Expressions? Superworks? </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Controlled subject access? </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Monitor research in terminology services </li></ul></ul>
  6. 7.

  7. 8. Maintaining FRBR and facets <ul><li>Will libraries maintain/enrich metadata to enable FRBR and facets? </li></ul><ul><li>Include within XC tools for metadata enrichment </li></ul>
  8. 9. Harvesting, preserving, sharing <ul><li>OAI-PMH compliant </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Ingest harvested metadata </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Allow harvesting from XC </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Allow search engines to index content </li></ul><ul><li>Preserve original metadata for future export </li></ul><ul><li>Share enriched metadata </li></ul>
