Here is an informative new volume that celebrates the increasing use and influence of the MARC format for Archives and Manuscript Control (AMC). As the format and its companion, the online archival catalog, gain acceptance among archivists, several major issues evolve, including the adoption and adaptation of standards for archival control data and the acceptance of archival control techniques for use in library collections. This is an important volume for library cataloguers, who in order to make use of the archival control techniques embodied in the AMC format must be familiar with basic tec
Shelflisting music : guidelines for use with the Library of Congress classification, M by Richard P Smiraglia( Book )

12 editions published between 1981 and 2008 in English and German and held by 506 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Library music materials require a more complex shelflisting approach than books in order to account for extremely prolific composers, works with generic titles, opus numbers, and thematic index numbers. Shelflisting Music provides clear, straightforward instructions and flowcharts to guide the cataloger through the process of shelflisting music--whether in score or recorded format--enabling anyone to produce call numbers that are consistent, accurate, and in accordance with standard Library of Congress "M" classification practices. After a brief explanation of the conceptual basis of music shelflisting, Richard P. Smiraglia brings together and clarifies shelflisting practices that are otherwise difficult to find or understand, thus providing concise and easy-to-follow instructions for assigning shelflist numbers. Smiraglia also includes a glossary of terms, as well as flowcharts to illustrate the process graphically. This small, easily accessible book can be kept by a computer workstation and consulted quickly for shelflisting guidance by anyone who catalogs music materials, from novices to experts

Bibliographic control of music, 1897-2000 by Richard P Smiraglia( Book )

6 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 298 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Although systematic efforts have been taken to develop and organize music collections in libraries for many years, documentation is scant and scattered. This retrospective of literature pertaining to the bibliographic control of music in libraries includes full citations for works dealing with the organization, classification, description, and provision of catalog access to printed and recorded music. Beyond understanding the origins of current practice, earlier literature provides a basis on which to formulate theoretical paradigms, which can be tested and used to articulate principles. This project illuminates both the history and future of the profession. A select bibliography of about 1,000 periodical and monographic citations relevant to the organization of music in libraries makes up the heart of this text. A brief introduction to facilitate use of the bibliography explains the coverage and arrangement in detail. An additional essay provides the historical and philosophical context of relevant literature and frames the agenda of research suggested by the findings of this project. Author, title, and topical indexes are included."--Publisher's website

The elements of knowledge organization by Richard P Smiraglia( Book )

8 editions published between 2014 and 2016 in English and held by 42 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Elements of Knowledge Organization is a unique and original work introducing the fundamental concepts related to the field of Knowledge Organization (KO). There is no other book like it currently available. The author begins the book with a comprehensive discussion of "knowledge" and its associated theories. He then presents a thorough discussion of the philosophical underpinnings of knowledge organization. The author walks the reader through the Knowledge Organization domain expanding the core topics of ontologies, taxonomies, classification, metadata, thesauri and domain analysis. The author also presents the compelling challenges associated with the organization of knowledge. This is the first book focused on the concepts and theories associated with KO domain. Prior to this book, individuals wishing to study Knowledge Organization in its broadest sense would generally collocate their own resources, navigating the various methods and models and perhaps inadvertently excluding relevant materials. This text cohesively links key and related KO material and provides a deeper understanding of the domain in its broadest sense and with enough detail to truly investigate its many facets. This book will be useful to both graduate and undergraduate students in the computer science and information science domains both as a text and as a reference book. It will also be valuable to researchers and practitioners in the industry who are working on website development, database administration, data mining, data warehousing and data for search engines. The book is also beneficial to anyone interested in the concepts and theories associated with the organization of knowledge. Dr. Richard P. Smiraglia is a world-renowned author who is well published in the Knowledge Organization domain. Dr. Smiraglia is editor-in-chief of the journal Knowledge Organization, published by Ergon-Verlag of Würzburg. He is a professor and member of the Information Organization Resea
The FRBR family of conceptual models : toward a linked bibliographic future by Richard P Smiraglia( Book )

Readers will learn about dialogues between the FRBR Family and other modeling technologies, specific implementations and extensions of F
Cultural synergy in information institutions by Richard P Smiraglia( Book )

12 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 23 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Cultural forces govern a synergistic relationship among information institutions that shapes their roles collectively and individually. Cultural synergy is the combination of perception- and behavior-shaping knowledge within, between, and among groups that contributes to the virtual reality of a common information-sharing interface among information institutions. Our hyperlinked era makes information-sharing among institutions critically important for scholarship as well as for the advancement of humankind. Information institutions are those that have, or share in, the mission to preserve, conserve, and disseminate information objects and their informative content. A central idea is the notion of social epistemology-- that information institutions arise culturally from social forces of the cultures they inhabit, and that their purpose is to disseminate that culture. All information institutions are alike in critical ways. Intersecting lines of cultural mission are trajectories for synergy-- for allowing us to perceive the universe of information institutions as interconnected and evolving and moving forward in distinct ways for the improvement of the condition of humankind through the building up of its knowledge base and of its information-sharing processes. This book is an exploration of the cultural synergy that can be realized by seeing commonalities among information institutions (sometimes also called cultural heritage institutions): museums, libraries, and archives. The hyperlinked era of the Semantic Web makes information sharing among institutions critically important for scholarship as well as the advancement of mankind. The book addresses the origins of cultural information institutions, the history of the professions that run them, and the social imperative of information organization as a catalyst for semantic synergy

Domain analysis for knowledge organization : tools for ontology extraction by Richard P Smiraglia( Book )

11 editions published in 2015 in English and Spanish and held by 19 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Domain analysis is the process of studying the actions, knowledge production, knowledge dissemination, and knowledge-base of a community of commonality, such as an academic discipline or a professional community. The products of domain analysis range from controlled vocabularies and other knowledge organization systems, to scientific evidence about the growth and sharing of knowledge and the evolution of communities of discourse and practice. In the field of knowledge organization, both the science and the practice, domain analysis is the basic research method for identifying the concepts that will be critical building blocks for knowledge organization systems. This book will survey the theoretical rationale for domain analysis, present tutorials in the specific methods of domain analysis, especially with regard to tools for visualizing knowledge domains
