OLA Superconference 2017 - Bridging the Gap: Linked Open Data for Libraries, Archives and Museums

Editor's Notes

  1. Questions that panelists will respond to (30 minutes / 9 minutes for question 1 . 7 minutes question 2-4) Questions from audience/ Wrap-up Hi everyone. So last year at Superconference I noticed that amongst the hundreds of sessions being offered at Canada’s largest library conference, none were on Linked Open data. There has been a lot of talk in the last few years about the importance of Linked Open Data, and some projects around it, but it’s mainly been focused in the academic library space. So we thought it would be great to have a on LOD and its importance for the Library, Archives and Museum community by bringing together a librarian, archivist and someone from the museum/heritage sector to discuss how LOD is being put into practice at their organization, and some of the challenges and exciting initiatives happening around LOD. Libraries, archives and museums have unique digitized collections – and linked open data has a huge impact on how those digitized resources are discovered, accessed and shared, reused What can we be doing - i.e what are the best practices so that local collections can be globally discoverable and shareable? Here’s a bit of an intro…to provide context for the discussion….
  2. Sheila Modernization of Artefacts Canada – repository of 4.3 million object records with 1.1 million images from 500 museums Institutions map their data and contribute to centralized database Demo project to test LOD – 8 art institutions, 86,000 records
  3. Sheila Mapped data to CIDOC CRM, additional ontologies used for artist data and terminology Links to external resources to enrich descriptions Paths to explore data, improved search Expanding model
  4. Working in a newly created role Main focus is improving access to digitized primary resources Islandora pilot to start surfacing digital content currently on a shared drive Migration from proprietary platform to AtoM Subject access points aren’t consistently applied - as records and content is moved online thought needs to be given to how and when they are applied Multiple digital platforms and resources already available or coming online - UWSpace, PURE, TUG shared catalogue etc. Currently thinking through: How metadata work can be aligned across multiple platforms to allow for LOD opportunities Staffing resources that can support the work Metadata creation is an underlying component of the work and I want that work to unfold in a way that means it can be adapted and reused moving forward.
  5. Creation of a dataset (LOD) based on Mariposa holdings Challenges lead to questions and opportunities (gaps = what to the gaps tell us?) LODLAM Toronto meeting Wikipedia/Wikidata Canada 150 music project. https://blog.wikimedia.org/2016/12/16/twelve-project-grants/ ARL project/Wikimedia project Stacy Research project Looking at various avenues: DAM System Islandora. Currently involved in assessmment and moving to cohesive metadata application profiles, staffing, cooperation between units LODLAM Toronto Involving liaison libs and archivists in discussions on … Collaborative futures, impacts Moving to increased use of tools and recognizing the landscape beyond
  6. Danielle/UWL State of our descriptive records makes it difficult to efficiently automate clean up or migration - every fonds/collection requires it’s own fixes In keeping with archival practice item level description is the exception, not the norm, yet digitized material need item level metadata records Technical barriers - “Librarians should learn to code” is great in theory, but not realistic in practice Making peace with the difference between what we’d like to do and what we can do given resources (and reality) People not understanding archives! Accepting that spreadsheets are the key to everything LOD gets talked about a lot, but there aren’t many visual, easy-to-understand examples of the doing/end result Not perpetuating/replicating colonial, Western approaches to standardized language Stacy Fundamentally people not understanding metadata in its different forms and the longstanding divisions between different areas of practice. Unable to see connections or ways we can help each other. Frictions between practices. Sheila Art museums protective of their materials. Protective of collection records/metadata. Fear of losing something, Fear of everyone knowing our data is messy, or that we might lose capital. Fear of losing capital Limitations of existing standards, models,
  7. Danielle/UWL Program for Co-operative Cataloguing Summary on Linked Data Training Resources: https://docs.google.com/viewer?url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.loc.gov%2Faba%2Fpcc%2Fsct%2Fdocuments%2FPCCSCTFinalReportonAvailableLinkedDataTrainingResources.docx Linked Data for Libraries, Archives and Museums - Seth van Hooland Wikipedia/Wikidata as visual representation of ‘linked data’
  8. Danielle/UWL Making use of cataloguing department and in-house expertise to create and improve metadata for digitized archival holdings Christina Harlow “Notes on Being a Metadata Supervisor” blog post about supervising a metadata and cataloguing department and navigating the different ways those tasks are understood/resisted/resented/embraced Cross-institutional work as opposed to silo-based projects Stacy LODLAM 2015. Inspiring to hear from museum folks Thinking beyond our descriptive practices and separating metadata from platforms/delivery mechanisms How to maximize the reach of the metadata we create The role of subject experts
