About Publisher Primary Research Group (New York):

Primary Research Group is the publisher of Survey of Emerging Cataloging Practices : Use of RDA by Academic Libraries. PRG publishes research reports, surveys, and benchmarking studies for businesses, colleges, libraries, law firms, hospitals, museums, and other institutions. Based on substantial primary and secondary research, benchmarking studies by PRG allow institutions to compare their budgets, managerial decisions, technology purchases, and strategic visions to those of their peers.

Press release (New York, May 5, 2016):

Primary Research Group Inc. has published the Survey of Emerging Cataloging Practices: Use of RDA by Academic Libraries, ISBN 978-157440-383-1 The study presents data and commentary from 60 predominantly academic libraries about their use of Resource Description and Cataloging, or RDA. The questionnaire was largely designed and the summary written by award winning cataloging and metadata librarian Salman Haider... ... Data is broken out by of academic institution, tuition level, and type or Carnegie class among other variables.

The study reports on library perceptions of RDA, ease of implementation, librarian training and use, and reception by patrons, among other issues. The study presents detailed commentary on the integration of RDA with ILS systems, and reports on the impact of RDA on cataloging productivity and use of staff time. It also contains detailed information on how librarians are training for use of RDA and what resources they are using to accomplish this. The report also looks at the general state of cataloging in academic libraries with questions about budget, staffing, technology use and more.

Just a few of the report’s many finding are that:

According to the survey participants 111.72 minutes is the mean extra time needed for every 10 library items cataloged using RDA vs. prior procedures. The median time extra was 50 minutes, and the range was from 0 to 600 minutes.

A plurality of survey participants were not in favor of retro-conversion services for RDA cataloging as they do not think that it will result in saving of time and money, and high quality records. Out of all 56 responses received 26 were against retro-conversion, 12 favored it, and 18 responses contained mixed opinions.

35.59 percent of all survey participants say the library has spent “about the same” on cataloging over the past five years, while 32.20 percent estimate that they have spent “somewhat less.” Just 8.47 percent of participants say their institutions have spent “somewhat more” on cataloging.

Comments / Testimonials / Reviews:

James Weinheimer, Director of Library and Information Services, American University of Rome, Rome, Italy [July 11, 2016] -- Incredible finding (that was met with complete silence) in the report “Survey of Emerging Cataloging Practices: Use of RDA by Academic Libraries”.

Carla Hayden becomes the first woman, first black to lead Library of Congress
#LIBRARIANSHIPSTUDIES
http://www.usatoday.com/story/news/politics/2016/09/14/library-of-congress-carla-hayden-capital-download/90270770/

Hayden, 64, the first woman and the first African American to serve as the Librarian of Congress, sat down with USA TODAY's Capital Download to talk about her battle against provisions of the USA Patriot Act and her decision to keep Baltimore's libraries open in the wake of violence over the death of Freddie Gray. Questions and answers have been edited for length and clarity.

Q: Do you bring a different sensibility or perspective to this job than your all-white, all-male predecessors?

Carla Hayden: I think being a woman in a feminized professional who has seen the leadership of that profession not reflect the fact that 85% of the workforce is female — that will be quite significant for the profession, that the largest library is now being led by a woman.

And the fact that I’m the first African American, that’s somewhat more personal in many ways, because I have for years researched and looked into the relationship of African Americans and literacy, and the fact that for many years in slavery, slaves were forbidden to learn to read and they were punished by whipping and amputations and things like that. And people who were caught teaching slaves to read were also punished. So for an African American to be leading the largest symbol of knowledge in the world is quite momentous and that really touches me. ... (More on above link)*

Not related to RDA but very interesting read from New York Public Library
 
Meet the "Human Google" at the New York Public Library
#LIBRARIANSHIPSTUDIES recommends must watch video
http://www.cbsnews.com/videos/librarians-still-finding-answers-in-the-google-era

EXCERPT:

The local library is a great place to fill your summer reading list for free. But it also remains a vital source for research. And in an era of online searches, librarians at the New York Public Library are still the most- trusted source.

They have been called the "Human Google," said CBSN's Elaine Quijano. And though they may not be as fast as your favorite Internet search engine, they're as reliable as ever.

The Fifth Avenue branch of the New York Public Library attracts about 2.5 million visitors each year.

Many pose with the lions named Patience and Fortitude ... snap pictures in the grand entry hall ... and pass through the reading rooms without cracking a book.

But the tables are full here. "Shushing" happens as much as you may remember. And the phones keep ringing for researchers.

"One of the number one comments that we get from callers is, 'Thank God I've reached a human being," said Rosa Li, who manages the library's "Ask Desk." "Even on chat sometimes people will say, 'Is this a robot or a person?' We have to laugh and say, 'I'm a real person.'"

The Ask Desk receives about 300 inquiries a day -- via telephone, email, chat or text message. "Facebook, Twitter, and even snail mail queries from New Yorkers and even people from around the world," Li said.

Researchers here can access materials not available to the general public, but Google -- and even Wikipedia -- are not off-limits. ... ... ... Complete article on URL: http://www.cbsnews.com/news/meet-the-human-google-at-the-new-york-public-library/

313 respondents to the survey answered both the question about the ILS used at their institution and the size of their library’s collection.

ILS Used Per Collection Size Category

The following table shows the percentage of respondents using a particular ILS in each collection size category. The percentages shown in bold are the highest for each category. (For example, for respondents with less than 10,000 volumes, the ILS used was split evenly between Alma, Millenium, Symphony, and Worldshare Management Services.) ... ...

Library and Information Science Dissertations and Theses

https://librarianshipstudies.blogspot.com/2016/07/dissertations-theses.html

#LIBRARIANSHIPSTUDIES

Reference sources for doctoral and master's dissertations and theses in Library and Information Science (LIS). General reference databases are listed first which is followed by the repositories and digital libraries of individual countries and universities. It also provides information on the online availability of electronic theses through centrally-maintained digital repositories which not only ensure easy access and archiving of doctoral theses but will also help in raising the standard and quality of research.

Theses and dissertations are known to be the rich and unique source of information, often the only source of research work that does not find its way into various publication channels. Theses and dissertations remain an untapped and under-utilized asset, leading to unnecessary duplication and repetition.

This entry Library and Information Science Dissertations and Theses in the Librarian's Reference Directory is expected to be the most comprehensive listing of sources of information on LIS dissertations and theses. It will enable LIS researchers with wider dissemination of information leading to improved referral and citation. It will not only bring more visibility and greater recognition to the researchers and their work but also help improve their rankings. It will be of immense help to the researchers in the task of literature search and review of related areas. Besides the literature reviews, the availability of comprehensive sources of LIS dissertations and thesis will give information on research studies already undertaken which will also help future researchers in identifying and formulating the topic of their research. It will eliminate the possibilities for researchers ending up pursuing a topic of research that has already been undertaken at the same or other universities. ... ... ...

University Libraries Collaborate on Web Discoverability Project

Stanford and Cornell are leading library efforts to help machines understand bibliographic information so it will be searchable on the Web.

The MAchine-Readable Cataloging (MARC) data format emerged nearly 40 years ago, and allows computers to share and use bibliographic information in library catalogs so patrons can find out more about the items libraries have in their collection. But outside of the library world, few organizations use the MARC data format, and external machines can't read it, making it dificult for people to find information about library holdings on the Web, said Philip E. Schreur, assistant university librarian for technical and access services at Stanford University's Green Library.

FRBR-Library Reference Model

2016-02-21 Draft for World-Wide Review

#FRBR #FRAD #FRSAD #FRBR-LRM #LIBRARIANSHIPSTUDIES

The FR conceptual models (FRBR, FRAD, and FRSAD) are being consolidated into a unified model, tentatively called the FRBR-Library Reference Model (FRBR-LRM)

Since the initial publication of the Functional Requirements for Bibliographic Records (FRBR) in 1998, the FR family of conceptual models grew to include three separate models for specific aspects of the bibliographic universe. In addition to FRBR for bibliographic data, the FR family of conceptual models included the Functional Requirements for Authority Data (FRAD) and the Functional Requirements for Subject Authority Data (FRSAD).

These models were prepared independently over many years by different working groups:

> FRBR was the final report of the IFLA Study Group on the Functional Requirements for Bibliographic Records. The Study Group was constituted in 1992, and the report was approved by the Standing Committee of the Section on Cataloguing on September 5, 1997.

> FRAD was the outcome of the IFLA Working Group on Functional Requirements and Numbering of Authority Records (FRANAR). FRANAR was established in April 1999 by the Division of Bibliographic Control and the Universal Bibliographic Control and International MARC Programme (UBCIM). The report was approved by the Standing Committees of the Cataloguing Section and the Classification and Indexing Section in March 2009.

> FRSAD was the report of the IFLA Working Group on the Functional Requirements for Subject Authority Records (FRSAR), which was formed in 2005. The report was approved by the Standing Committee of the IFLA Section on Classification and Indexing in June 2010... ...

Outsourcing Cataloging Tasks
#LIBRARIANSHIPSTUDIES

Out of 319 respondents, a little less than half said that their libraries are currently outsourcing different cataloging tasks. As would be expected, the libraries that are outsourcing some cataloging tasks are the doctoral institutions with a larger staff, collection, and budget.

The following tables are in response to the question “Do you outsource any cataloging tasks?” compared to the type of academic institution, the total FTE for the library, size of the collection, and annual budget. ... ... ...
