Bringing Increased Efficiency to Technical Services: Is EOCR for You? (Program E5)

Monday, July 12, 2010 — 10:00-10:30 a.m.
CCC-Room 601-603

[Get program handout]

Have you reviewed your acquisitions workflow recently? Is it as automated and efficient as it could be? How would you like it if you didn't have to do pre-order searching in your catalog, didn't have to download bibliographic records, didn't have to create order records in your online system and didn't have to input invoice data for most of your titles? No, it is not a joke, you can do all this by implementing EOCR (Electronic Order Confirmation Records) and OCLC WorldCat Cataloging Partners. Many vendors offer this service for firm as well as approval book orders. This session will provide examples from one vendor on how they provide EOCR services and a library's perspective on how they implemented it.

Sunday, July 11, 2010 — 4:15-5:15 p.m.
CCC-Room 601-603

[Get program handout]

Is your library short a cataloger but at the same time faced with an administrative mandate to hold or cut costs? Or are you a cataloger looking for a position and wondering how to best achieve your goal? This conversation based on research can help you cope from either end of the spectrum. Dr. Sylvia D. Hall-Ellis, representing the library science professor perspective, describes her research into the changing expectations pertaining to cataloging positions. JoAnna L. Patrick reacts to the research in her role as a law library administrator attempting to balance the constraints of the budget with the need to make materials accessible. And just to make it even more interesting, there is the impending implementation of new cataloging rules to deal with, as RDA replaces AACR2.

Cataloging & Classification Roundtable

Monday, July 12, 2010 — 5:30-6:30 p.m.
Hyatt-Capitol Ballroom 5-7

[Get meeting handouts]

The transition from AACR2 to RDA, especially with the vagueness of cost, timing, implementation strategies and time lines from ILS vendors, and compatibility of new MARC fields with their uses in current bibliographic databases poses a tremendous challenge. Law librarians who work in technical services are in a unique position. Their collections are specialized and the clientele is broad-based. Plans to move with the rest of the library community are necessary. Come to this program to explore options for how to achieve this change.

Charting New Roles for Technical Services: Faculty Publications and Institutional Repositories (Program I5)

Tuesday, July 13, 2010 — 10:45-11:30 a.m.
CCC-Room 601-603

Institutional repositories are designed to collect, preserve, and disseminate in digital format the intellectual output of an institution. As such, institutional repositories are gaining in recognition as a key factor in emerging digital research and the ability to provide free and unrestricted access to faculty research. A faculty publications website provides similar access, but with different requirements and expectations. Faculty publications websites focus on listing the published works of current faculty, and may not provide open access to all of the publications listed. The model that an institution follows will be guided by its mission and the resources available to support it. As traditional work routines in technical services diminish, this program demonstrates how technical services staff can continue to support the library's evolving mission.

Collection Development Roundtable (ALL-SIS)

Tuesday, July 13, 2010 — 9:00-10:00 a.m.
CCC-Room 602

All librarians involved in collection development are encouraged to join us for this year�s roundtable discussion. Since there are no formal speakers scheduled, this will truly be a discussion, so please bring your expertise with this topic to share with those who need information to bring back to their respective institutions.
Please bring questions, concerns (and sample policies) to the table OR send them to Karen A. Nuckolls at kanuck2 [at] uky.edu

Collection Development Tools: From 'Tried and True' to 'Spiffy and New!' (ALL-SIS Program K2)

Tuesday, July 13, 2010 — 3:30-4:00 p.m.
CCC Rm 108-112

With every new year and each new technological marvel, the work of librarians engaged in collection development has the potential to get more complex. We are barraged with publication announcements in our e-mail inboxes, our print mailboxes and on our fax machines. Many of us also have contracts with book jobbers, subscriptions to products designed to help with collection development workflow, and a number of other individually devised schemes for locating and acquiring the right materials for our libraries, while eliminating the items that don't fit our collections. With so much information at our fingertips and so many possibilities before us, now is the perfect time to review both the fundamental "tried-and-true" tools of collection development, as well as some of the newer tools that hold great promise for streamlining our workflow to get the most comprehensive and relevant information. This program will touch on a few of the most widely used traditional tools for collection development, some of which include Books in Print, WorldCat, acquisitions listservs, and slip/approval plans. It will then move on to some of the new and exciting possibilities offered by Web 2.0, like RSS feeds for new acquisitions and collection development blogs. Participants' input on their favorite tools they currently use will be gathered and shared.

Database Ownership: Myth or Reality? (TS-SIS Program co-sponsored with CS-SIS)

Monday, July 12, 2010 — 4:00-5:15 p.m.
CCC-Room 107

For some legal databases, vendors advertise the option to purchase the data outright, whereby the library would "own" the content of the database if the vendor goes out of business or if the library decides to cancel their subscription to the database interface. This �ownership� option is usually expensive but promises perpetual access to the data. What does this really mean? The Barco Law Library cancelled annual subscriptions to two such databases and asked the vendors to provide the content as promised. Learn what was discovered about the hidden costs of "owning" a database and the intricacies of data and metadata manipulation for storage, access and display.

The Ever-Evolving World of Vendor-Supplied MARC Records

Monday, July 12, 2010 — 10:45-11:45 a.m.
Hyatt-Capitol Ballroom 4

As law libraries increasingly rely on online resources, there is a growing need for MARC bibliographic records to represent these resources in the local online catalog. Many law libraries now have access to large digital collections such as Making of Modern Law, LLMC-Digital and HeinOnline, not to mention Lexis and Westlaw, with titles too numerous to be cataloged locally. As a result, law libraries must rely on records supplied by vendors for access to these titles in their local catalogs. Members of the TS-SIS Task Group on Vendor-Supplied Bibliographic Records will discuss the new standards for provider-neutral e-monograph records. The ongoing work of evaluating MARC record sets and working with vendors and others to improve the quality of these record sets also will be explained.

Hot Topic Program (TS-SIS): New Faces of Resource-Sharing— SkyRiver and USS, Just to Name Two!

Sunday, July 11, 2010 — 12:00-1:15 p.m.
CCC-Room 109

[Get program handouts]

The creative team from Innovative Interfaces has introduced a new bibliographic utility, www.theskyriver.com, to compete with OCLC and, once again, offer libraries a choice for cooperative cataloging. The New England Law Library Consortium (NELLCO) has developed the Universal Search Solution - USS - a master index of material, including participating library OPACs, web-based free and subscription-based material, local electronic content and other e-content that its participating libraries wishes to make discoverable to researchers. The USS can also be used as an acquisition and copy cataloging tool. It's not your Mama's bibliographic landscape anymore!

How Are We To Accomplish That Much More With That Much Less? (TS-SIS Program)

Tuesday, July 13, 2010 — 2:15-3:15 p.m.
CCC-Room 107

Pursuant to the cuts that libraries have been asked to sustain while striving to maintain optimum service, we have reorganized, revamped, and realigned processes, tasks, procedures, and, just as importantly, our daily outlook. The draconian moves employed to deal with economic uncertainties take a toll on our collections and the psychological well-being of library staff in professional and support positions. This program, through active discussion by librarians and a mental health professional, seeks to give guidance in dealing with these issues. Part 1 will deal with change management -- how libraries have managed their changing environments due to shrinking budgets and the march from print to electronic. Part 2 will address the human responses to these changes with a presentation by a mental health professional. Discussion will continue at the Technical Services Management Issues Roundtable (immediately following in the same room).
Regardless of library type, we're all dealing with uncertain economic times. During the program, speakers will introduce situations at their libraries which will be followed by a presentation from Mental Health America of Colorado. We hope that you will share your situation with us, questions you may have to open up a discussion, and perhaps also some ideas on problem resolution! Part one of the program (2:15-3:15) will begin with librarians introducing their particular library situations and follow with basic information on workplace wellness presented by a representative from Mental Health America of Colorado. Part two (3:15-4:00) will consist of a discussion period, and is listed in the program as the Technical Services Management Issues Roundtable.

MARC and RDA: an Overview (Program G5; co-sponsored with OBS-SIS)

Monday, July 12, 2010 — 4:00-5:15 p.m.
CCC-Room 601-603

[Get program handouts]

This presentation explains the changes in MARC (MAchine-Readable Cataloging) to support compatibility with the upcoming cataloging standard, RDA (Resource Description and Access), and the likely influence of those changes on law material cataloging. For years, MARC has successfully supported previous cataloging content standards, such as AACR2. The new cataloging standard, RDA, is designed for our digital world, and is intended to provide more user-friendly access to all types of information resources. Accordingly, MARC formats need to change to facilitate data exchange of records using the new standard. What are those changes, and how will the changes affect law libraries? The presentation will focus on these topics and will help law catalogers and other technical services librarians prepare for the RDA era.

Open Source ILS: What a Service Oriented System Brings to You and Your Library (Program B3; co-sponsored with OBS-SIS)

Sunday, July 11, 2010 — 3:00-4:00 p.m.
CCC-Room 201-203

Presenters discuss how OS ILS can reengineer your overall library service, and the challenges of its implementation. While the majority of libraries rely on proprietary systems, the OS ILS is a potentially viable approach for some technologically savvy libraries. Questions about what makes Open Source Software different from proprietary software; how it organizes it elements, what tools it uses, and how it operates are addressed. Presenters also discuss how a service-oriented architecture can be incorporated into OS ILS and how a customized system can be interoperable with various systems to avoid repetitive data management. The foreseeable implementation dilemma on in-house knowledge bases and resources for system development and sustainable system maintenance/update will be surveyed.

The Semantic Web and RDA: Making the Catalog a Networked Bibliographic Environment (Program H4; co-sponsored with OBS-SIS)

Tuesday, July 13, 2010 — 9:00-10:30 a.m.
CCC-Room 205-207

This presentation will introduce how RDA, the up-coming cataloging standard, can integrate the library catalog with the web services developing out of the Semantic Web. The Semantic Web is an emerging technology that will build a web of knowledge from today's web of documents. Using Resource Description Framework (RDF), the Semantic Web focuses on the identification of information entities and the relationships between them. RDA is similarly based on the entity-relationship model of the Functional Requirements for Bibliographic Records (FRBR). Applying Semantic Web concepts to the new cataloging standard can result in the evolution of library data into a more effective and flexible information retrieval tool. This will also facilitate data-mining and bibliometric analysis based on the bibliographic relationships coded in the structured metadata.

SKOS and HIVE: Enhancing the Creation, Design, and Flow of Information (Program D4)

Monday, July 12, 2010 — 8:45-9:45 a.m.
CCC-Room 205-207

The reality of the Semantic Web is quickly approaching! An increasing amount of attention is being given to The World Wide Web Consortium's (W3C) Simple Knowledge Organization Systems (SKOS). SKOS is a way of developing standards for knowledge organization systems (i.e. classification schemes, like Library of Congress Classification Schemes; subject headings; and thesauri) that can be used in the Semantic Web. This presentation will give an introduction to the main concepts related to SKOS and discuss how SKOS is relevant to the law library environment. Speakers will also introduce a SKOS-based project called HIVE (Helping Interdisciplinary Vocabulary Engineering), an Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS) funded open source vocabulary server project that is meant to improve access to interdisciplinary collections.

What's in a Name: CORE and I-2, New Standards to Improve Efficiency in the Electronic Resources Environment

Sunday, July 11, 2010 — 1:30-2:45 p.m.
CCC-Room 109

The current marketplace has numerous products from many vendors to address different aspects of electronic resources. Interoperability between them is essential to gain maximum benefits. CORE (Cost of Resource Exchange) describes a message structure which facilitates the transfer of cost data from Integrated Library Systems to Electronic Resource Management Systems. Identifying institutions with multiple departments, campuses and their hierarchical relationship can be very difficult. I-2 (Institutional Identifier) a proposed NISO standard, under development, is a unique identifier assigned to an institution. I-2 aims to be global, interoperable and unique and will show the hierarchical relationship of an institution with all its subsidiaries. Working group members of these two standards will discuss the need for these standards, their goals, objectives, data elements used and implementation issues.
