  • B-6: Linked Data: The New Bibliographic Framework in the Post-MARC World
    Sunday, July 14, 2:00-3:30 p.m.
    Room: 615-617

    The Library of Congress' Bibliographic Framework Transition Initiative will transform existing metadata (the MARC format) into a sustainable bibliographic encoding system, connecting library resources to the whole world of information resources. Does the library's initiative enable current library metadata to be used in linked data technology to construct a core data model for library applications? Can a huge library infrastructure built up over the years around the MARC format be harvested by the new and emerging content standards to support prototype services? How can future bibliographic control standards leverage all the services to benefit the community? You will find answers to these questions in this program.

    Panelists: Karen Coyle, Eric Miller, Glenn E. Patton.
    Coordinator/Moderator: Keiko Okuhara.

    Takeaway 1: Participants will be able to explain three significant reasons for the new bibliographic framework.
    Takeaway 2: Participants will be able to describe a new code system to replace Machine Readable Catalog (MARC).
    Takeaway 3: Participants will be able to design an action plan to make library resources accessible in Semantic Web.

Beginning in 2013, the members of this consortium began migrating from individual integrated library systems to a shared library management system— the Ex Libris Alma and Primo management system. This roundtable will focus on the planning and implementing of a shared system by the first cohort of libraries that led to making their vision a reality. Three members from the Alliance will lead an informal moderated roundtable, which will include both prepared and real-time questions from the audience.

    Orbis Cascade Alliance Presenters: Bill Kelm, Systems Librarian at Willamette University in Salem, Oregon; Al Cornish, departing Systems Library at Washington State University at Pullman and incoming Shared ILS Program Manager for the Alliance staff; and Ann Nez, one of our own and Coordinator of Technical Services at Gallagher Law Library at the University of Washington.

  • F-8: Hot Topic: Rethinking the Cloud: Legal Aspects of Cloud Solutions
    Monday, July 16, 8:30-9:45 a.m.
    Room: 618-620

    While cloud computing is revolutionary in the legal context, it does have a potential impact on legal risk. Once the data is on the web, where does it reside? Electronically stored information on the cloud is subject to different protections than information stored in-house. Warranties are given by the customer instead of by the service provider for privacy and data security. If your library chooses a cloud solution, which regulations do you need to be familiar with to protect client/patron data? Identify key factors to discuss and negotiate with service providers before giving assent to their Service Level Agreements (SLAs).

    Panelists:Danielle Conway, George Pike.
    Coordinator/Moderator: Keiko Okuhara.

    Takeaway 1: Participants will be able to identify at least three important laws and regulations to consider for cloud-based solutions.
    Takeaway 2: Participants will be able to create legal strategies to successfully migrate their library data and services to the cloud.
    Takeaway 3: Participants will be able to predict three potential risks for cloud implementation.
    Who Should Attend: Administrators interested in cloud computing implementation; information technology and technical services/systems librarians.
    Track: Information Technology.
