Proceedings of the International Conference on Dublin Core and Metadata Applications | Year: 2010

The OCLC CONTENTdm Metadata Working Group was formed in response to research demonstrating the need for guidelines and best practices for creating quality Dublin Core metadata, which is useful to the primary user community and 'shareable' outside of the local context. The CONTENTdm Metadata Working Group has worked since August 2009 in a test environment to develop best practices for creating Dublin Core metadata in CONTENTdm and mapping to MARC to share in WorldCat via the WorldCat Digital Collection Gateway, a self-service OAI harvesting tool. The best practice document identifies 12 core elements and four recommended elements, and provides guidelines for field content standardization and mapping to other metadata standards. Concerns such as adherence to the Dublin Core one-to-one principle regarding the recording of original and digital dates and publishers are also discussed, along with recommendations for configuring metadata for the Digital Collection Gateway to increase the shareability of metadata.

Purpose: Moves towards more interactive services on the web have led libraries to add an increasing range of functionality to their OPACS. Given the prevalence of recommender systems on the wider web, especially in e-commerce environments, this paper aims to review current research in this area that is of particular relevance to the library community. It attempts to gauge the uptake of recommender systems in exiting OPAC services, and identify issues that might be responsible for inhibiting wider uptake. Design/methodology/approach: This paper draws on an extensive literature review, as well as original research comparing the functionality of 211 public and 118 university library OPACs in the UK. Examining current recommender systems research, it outlines the most significant recommendation models and reviews research in two key areas of recommender systems design: data acquisition, and the explanation of recommendations. It discusses three existing library recommendation systems: BibTip, LibraryThing for Libraries and the in-house system at the University of Huddersfield. Findings: The authors' analysis indicates that the incorporation of recommender systems into library services is extremely low, with only 2 per cent of public libraries and 11 per cent of university libraries in the UK offering the feature. While system limitations and budget constraints are perhaps partly to blame, it is suggested that library professionals have perhaps yet to be persuaded that the value of recommendations to library users is great enough to warrant their inclusion becoming a priority. Originality/value: This paper represents the first study of UK library OPACs to focus on the prevalence of recommender systems. © Emerald Group Publishing Limited.

Creating descriptions of collected works in ways consistent with clear and precise retrieval has long challenged information professionals. This paper describes problems of creating record clusters for collected works and distinguishing them from single works: design pitfalls, successes, failures, and future research. © 2014, American Library Association.

Purpose: Describing musical pieces, whether sound recordings, scores, librettos, videos, has always involved cataloger interpretation and judgment. There is considerable variation in records created for exactly the same item. And there is never "proof" that two records which seem to describe the same item actually do. This paper aims to address this issue. Design/methodology/approach: This paper describes some of the challenges encountered in developing software for matching music records, and some approaches to making the software reliable. Findings: The paper finds that matching can be used successfully to create GLIMIR clusters in the WorldCat database. Work is needed in several areas to complete the implementation, but intermediate results are promising. Originality/value: This implementation will allow end-user applications to collocate resources, to improve discovery and delivery in a complex bibliographic universe.© Emerald Group Publishing Limited.

This work-in-progress paper introduces an interface for the interactive visual exploration of the context of queries using the ArticleFirst database, a product of OCLC. We describe a workow which allows the user to browse live entities associated with 65 million articles. In the on-line interface, each query leads to a specific network representation of the most prevailing entities: topics (words), authors, journals and Dewey decimal classes linked to the set of terms in the query. This network represents the context of a query. Each of the network nodes is clickable: by clicking through, a user traverses a large space of articles along dimensions of authors, journals, Dewey classes and words simultaneously. We present different use cases of such an interface. This paper provides a link between the quest for maps of science and on-going debates in HCI about the use of interactive information visualisation to empower users in their search.

Proceedings of the ASIST Annual Meeting | Year: 2011

This paper reports on a collaborative research project currently underway between the University of Sheffield's Information School and OCLC., the goal of which is to produce a recommender system for WorldCat.org - the publically accessible aggregated catalogue of the holdings of OCLC's member libraries. It highlights two of the key issues facing recommender systems design in the library domain: 1) Trust: users' trust both in the system itself and in collaboratively generated suggestions; and 2) Context: the difficulties of a system adapting to the huge range of information-seeking contexts that accompany a diverse user base. The paper describes how future qualitative and quantitative research will attempt to address these issues, and produce a system that best serves users of WorldCat.org. It is hoped that as well as contributing to recommender systems research in general, the results of this project will help inform debates relating to the interaction between users and systems in a library context.

CEUR Workshop Proceedings | Year: 2015

A university's institutional repository (IR) contains the intellectual output of its faculty, staff and students. Its content is extensive and heterogenous, which complicates data aggregation and discovery tasks. To address these challenges, we propose the use of a conceptual ontology design pattern to model information for the IR domain which is general enough to be reused across different IR datasets.
