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. ... ... ...

OTHER TITLE INFORMATION ➨ Other Title Information is information (words or phrases, e.g. a subtitle) that appears in conjunction with, and is subordinate to, the title proper of a resource. Other Title Information is a statement appearing on the item that provides additional information about the nature of the item, its purpose, scope, form (e.g., a biography), genre (e.g., a mystery novel), contents (e.g., conference papers) or subject. It may include any phrase appearing with a title proper that is indicative of the character, contents, etc., of the resource or the motives for, or occasion of, its production, publication, etc. In the bibliographic record, Other Title Information is transcribed following the whole or part of the title proper or parallel title to which it pertains.

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.

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/

During January 2015, cataloging librarians in Milner Library successfully completed a Library of Congress training program to become members of the Name Authority Cooperative Program (NACO).

As a NACO member, Milner Library creates, reviews, and enhances access points for personal, corporate, and jurisdictional names; and uniform titles based on national and international standards and then shares them globally through the LC/NACO Authority File. These unique identifiers are used to link works in online catalogs and to allow users to more easily find related items... ... ... ...
