Library Linked Data in the Cloud : OCLC's Experiments with New Models of Resource Description by Carol Jean Godby( Book )

13 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 128 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book describes OCLC's contributions to the transformation of the Internet from a web of documents to a Web of Data. The new Web is a growing "cloud" of interconnected resources that identify the things people want to know about when they approach the Internet with an information need. The linked data architecture has achieved critical mass just as it has become clear that library standards for resource description are nearing obsolescence. Working for the world's largest library cooperative, OCLC researchers have been active participants in the development of next-generation standards for library resource description. By engaging with an international community of library and Web standards experts, they have published some of the most widely used RDF datasets representing library collections and librarianship

A computational study of lexicalized noun phrases in English by Carol Jean Godby( )

4 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Lexicalized noun phrases are noun phrases that function as words. In English, lexicalized noun phrases are often realized as noun-noun compounds such as theater ticket and garbage man, or as adjective-noun phrases such as black market and high school. In specialized or technical subjects, phrases such as urban planning, air traffic control, highway engineering and combinatorial mathematics are conventional names for concepts that are just as important as single-word terms such as adsorbents, hydrology, or aerodynamics. But despite the fact that lexicalized noun phrases represent useful vocabulary and are cited in dictionaries, thesauri and book indexes, the traditional linguistic literature has failed to identify consistent and categorical formal criteria for identifying them
What do application profiles reveal about the learning object metadata standard? by Carol Jean Godby( )

Two paths to interoperable metadata by Carol Jean Godby( )

1 edition published in 2003 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper describes a prototype for a Web service that translates between pairs of metadata schemas. Despite a current trend toward encoding in XML and XSLT, we present arguments for a design that features a more distinct separation of syntax from semantics. The result is a system that automates routine processes, has a well-defined place for human input, and achieves a clean separation of the document data model, the document translations, and the machinery of the application
Two techniques for the identification of phrases in full text by Carol Jean Godby( )

1 edition published in 1995 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This study compares two methods for automatically discovering content-bearing phrases that would improve searchable and browsable indexes of full-text documents. The first method parses the text for noun phrases and uses heuristics to identify the best content-bearing phrases. The second method identifies these phrases by applying frequency and association statistics to the text. It is argued that the second method promises to give results that are just as good as the first, and has the advantages of being conceptually simpler and more generic
Using SiteSearch to create a resource discovery tool for the Internet by Carol Jean Godby( )

1 edition published in 1996 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

OCLC's SiteSearch ľ can be used not only to mount databases of local interest but also as a programming environment for creating database applications. When SiteSearch is used as a development environment, all programming can be done using high-level scripting languages. The result is a custom-designed application program that comforms to established standards
Toward element-level interoperability in bibliographic metadata by Carol Jean Godby( )

1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper discusses an approach and set of tools for translating bibliographic metadata from one format to another. A computational model is proposed to formalize the notion of a 'crosswalk'. The translation process separates semantics from syntax, and specifies a crosswalk as machine executable translation files which are focused on assertions of element equivalence and are closely associated with the underlying intellectual analysis of metadata translation. A data model developed by the authors called Morfrom serves as an internal generic metadata format. Translation logic is written in an XML scripting language designed by the authors called the Semantic Equivalence Expression Language (Seel). These techniques have been built into an OCLC software toolkit to manage large and diverse collections of metadata records, called the Crosswalk Web Service
A repository of metadata crosswalks by Carol Jean Godby( )

1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper proposes a model for metadata crosswalks that associates three pieces of information: the crosswalk, the source metadata standard, and the target metadata standard, each of which may have a machine-readable encoding and human-readable description. The crosswalks are encoded as METS records that are made available to a repository for processing by search engines, OAI harvesters, and custom-designed Web services. The METS object brings together all of the information required to access and interpret crosswalks and represents a significant improvement over previously available formats. But it raises questions about how best to describe these complex objects and exposes gaps that must eventually be filled in by the digital library community
Enhancing the indexing vocabulary of the Dewey Decimal Classification by Carol Jean Godby( )

1 edition published in 1997 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This work explores the possibility of using unrestricted machine-readable full text to augment the indexing vocabulary of the Dewey Decimal Classification and make it more accessible to end users. It is based on the hypothesis that contemporary text is more likely to contain up-to-date vocabulary than a reference work that must undergo a rigorous editorial review process
A metalanguage for describing Internet resources by Carol Jean Godby( )

1 edition published in 1996 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper describes a tool that can be used to create customized descriptions of Internet resources. When these descriptions adhere to established standards such as MARC, TEI, and FGDC, they can be collected into databases and searched with a common, easy-to-use interface using the OCLC Spectrum System. The Dublin Core Element Set ("Dublin Core") is used to implement semantic interoperability
Metadata switch : thinking about some metadata management and knowledge organization issues in the changing research and learning landscape by Lorcan Dempsey( )

1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The academic library is not an end in itself. It supports research, learning and scholarship, and it must adapt as research and learning behaviors change in a network environment. The papers in this volume give a good sense of the challenges posed by such developments and the manifold library response. This paper briefly considers some of these issues, and takes them as its context, but quickly moves to a very specific emphasis. It considers how such library responses create new metadata management and knowledge organization questions, and it then outlines some of the work in OCLC Research which responds to these issues
Automatically generated topic maps of World Wide Web resources by Carol Jean Godby( )

1 edition published in 1999 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Results from OCLC's WordSmith and Resource Description Framework [RDF] projects are combined to extract concepts from Web documents, automatically creating subject hierarchies that conform to an international metadata standard. Once in this form, the subject hierarchies can be used as navigable topic maps for Web sites and as a bridge to standard classification schemes
Library classification schemes and access to electronic collections : enhancement of the Dewey Decimal Classification with supplemental vocabulary by Diane Vizine-Goetz( )

1 edition published in 1997 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A traditional library classification scheme, such as the Dewey Decimal Classification, requires ongoing improvements to the terminology of caption headings and to the currency, size and scope of its indexing vocabulary if it is to function effectively as a knowledge structuring tool for electronic collections. In this paper we describe two complementary research efforts to enhance the DDC with supplemental vocabulary. One project focuses on effecting links between the DDC and other subject access systems. The other project is concerned with associating current and end-user terminology from full text with the DDC. With these more versatile versions of the DDC, we are exploring the potential for automatically assigning classes to electronic documents
Social metadata for libraries, archives, and museums by Karen Smith-Yoshimura( )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Presents results of a survey conducted in October-November 2009 of managers of websites that support the creation of "social metadata," the content generated from certain "social media" features (e.g., tagging, comments, reviews, images, videos, ratings, recommendations, lists, links to related articles, etc.) that support the contribution of user-generated content. The sites that responded to the survey originate from academic libraries and archives, national libraries or archives, non-profit organizations not affiliated with any institution, museums, historical societies, consortia, other cultural institutions, public libraries, plus one botanical garden and one special library
Common ground : exploring compatibilities between the linked data models of the Library of Congress and OCLC by Carol Jean Godby( )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This document describes the progression of the BIBFRAME model developed by the Library of Congress and models based on Schema.org developed by OCLC, while also analyzing the alignment of the two models. Recommendations for closer alignment of the Library of Congress and OCLC linked data models are also addressed
The relationship between BIBFRAME and OCLC's linked-data model of bibliographic description : a working paper by Carol Jean Godby( )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This document describes a proposed alignment between BIBFRAME and a model being explored by OCLC with extensions (SchemaBibEx) proposed by the Schema Bib Extend project, a W3C-sponsored community group tasked with adapting Schema.org to the description of library resources. The key result is that the two efforts are complementary except for some common vocabulary required for the most important entities (e.g., FRBR Group 1) and relationships

A crosswalk from ONIX Version 3.0 for Books to MARC 21 by Carol Jean Godby( )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Describes OCLC's experience with mapping ONIX 3.0 for Books to MARC and updates the 2010 report Mapping ONIX to MARC which focused on ONIX 2.1. As in the earlier work [Godby, Carol Jean. Mapping ONIX to MARC. Dublin, Ohio : OCLC Research, c2010], the goal is to define and make public a specification for creating a production-grade bibliographic record appropriate for the library community from publisher-supplied metadata
