Playing with Jane

  1. 1. A step-by-step introduction to describing the resources swirling around Jane Austin University of Hawaii, December 2014
  2. 2. Why RIMMF?   Well constructed for FRBR-based description  Data structure comes from RDA Registry  Links to RDA Toolkit throughout data building process  Useful visualization of groups of records  RDF export  Improves discussion of issues with RDA  Step-by-step illustration of adding a record [next] Playing with Jane, Hawaii, 12/2014 2

  13. 13. Issues for Discussion   Record sharing  Identification  RDF  Data Aggregation  Looking more clearly at workflow and maintenance  Provenance: who, what when, [where?] Playing with Jane, Hawaii, 12/2014 13
  14. 14. Substituting a Cache for a Database   Supports multiple streams of data  Allows detailed provenance to be carried over time  Separates services from data storage  Allows more extensive automation (and orchestration of services)  Focuses valuable human effort where it’s needed: analysis, design and implementation of improvement services Playing with Jane, Hawaii, 12/2014 14
  15. 15. Workflow   Obtain data (possibly as ‘records’)  Store data as statements in cache  Evaluate data by source or collection  Improve data using specific services, as determined by evaluation  Publish improved data  [Rinse, repeat] Playing with Jane, Hawaii, 12/2014 15
  16. 16. Developing Automated Interaction   Rule: Use humans for things requiring human understanding and decision making  Use machines for everything else  A manual process for something a machine can do as well or better is a failure  Improvement services can be granular, invoked in prescribed order, and report results for later use  Continuous improvement necessary to respond to continuous change Playing with Jane, Hawaii, 12/2014 16
  17. 17. Data Maintenance  • Improved data returns as statements to the data cache, with provenance attached • Statement strategy avoids overwriting of new data over ‘improved’ data  Each new statement adds to what is known about a described resource  Statements can be cherry picked and exposed to others in statements or records, in ‘flavors’ or as a ‘everything we have’ Playing with Jane, Hawaii, 12/2014 17
