W03: Getting Started with MarcEdit 7: New Tools, New Models, New Automation Opportunities
MarcEdit 7 represents the next generation in the MarcEdit application development.  Over the course of six months, MarcEdit has been redeveloped and reimagined to allow for greater automation, data manipulation, and integration opportunities.  MarcEdit 7 development focused on:

  • Simplifying workflows and help
  • A focus on software accessibility
  • Deeper integrations with OCLC and the existing next generation ILS ecosystem
  • Development of new global editing tools
  • Support for working direction with knowledge-graphs and semantic data
  • Development of new paradigms for crosswalking metadata

At its core, this workshop will focus on editing library data…specifically how attendees can quickly create, editing, and modify large batches of library data.  The workshop will put a premium on automation, looking at ways in which users can automate workflows and processes.  At the same time, given the recent release of MarcEdit 7, the workshop will highlight many of the new tools like the new metadata profiler to enable simplified non-MARC to MARC (or non-MARC) transformations and the new data clustering functionality designed to help make sense of messy data, as well as enhancements to the linked data toolkit.  Working with real-data, and answering real-world problems, the workshop will seek to provide attendees with the knowledge and necessary toolkit to enhance and improve their processes at their home institutions.

This workshops will be available to in-person attendees only and requires an additional ticket. It will not be available via the Online Conference.

S005: KBART Automation: Staying up-to-date to keep YOU (and your subscriptions) up-to-date!
The NISO KBART (KnowledgeBases And Related Tools) Automation working group is creating a recommended practice to build a seamless connection between libraries' local knowledge bases and information providers’ access/entitlement systems. Could a standard application of an API really bring to librarians and users the holy grail: accurate and timely library holdings across different systems?

Streaming video is a key initiative of Pennsylvania State University’s 2016-2020 Strategic Plan.

S068-01: Making It Work! Sharing *Great* E-Book Metadata Along A Specialized Supply Chain
Publishers, libraries, aggregators, preservation agencies, collection management systems and discovery services all serve crucial roles in the provision of e-book content and data to end users. However: quality e-book metadata is elusive for all. This session will discuss the NISO initiative which aims to break down barriers to sharing and understanding e-book metadata issues across stakeholders.

S087: Analyzing Linked Data from an SEO Perspective
One of the chief promises of linked data for libraries is search engine visibility. Few studies, however, have attempted a quantitative analysis of linked data's impact on search engine rankings. In this session, we will review a linked data project from a search engine optimization perspective.

How can we help students and researchers cultivate knowledge over merely consuming information? With an enormous pool of information existing across a wide range of fragmented sources and growing every day, can AI technologies facilitate an efficient and accurate topic exploration, and enable easy access to trusted, peer-reviewed content?

W08: Do Something Real with Linked Data: A Micro-projects Approach
Everybody’s talking about linked data, but how do you begin working with it? This workshop will teach participants about basic linked data technologies that can be used to create “micro-projects” — small, approachable, hands-on projects that foster education and experimentation.

The instructors will provide an overview of how they have worked as part of a larger effort to build a culture of linked data engagement within a technical services department. This discussion will include an emphasis on educational efforts and planning techniques for linked data projects. The rest of the workshop will be made up of three activity sessions. Each session will include an introduction to a linked data technology, a brief discussion of project ideas, and a hand-ons practice activity. The technologies we will cover include harvesting URIs using MARCedit, entity reconciliation using OpenRefine, and semantic web markup using Schema.org and JSON-LD.

Participants will come away from this workshop with an understanding of basic linked data technologies and ideas for how they might engage with these technologies in a practical way — either as an individual contributor or a manager.

A basic understanding of metadata concepts (metadata standards, data formats, data manipulation, linked data) would be helpful for participants. Familiarity with MARCEdit, OpenRefine, and specific data formats MARC and JSON would be useful, but not necessary. Each activity session will begin with an introduction to the technology used, which should be enough for those previously unfamiliar with the technology.

This workshops will be available to in-person attendees only and requires an additional ticket. It will not be available via the Online Conference.
