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

9 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 110 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( )

3 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In a engineering text, a small set of linguistic contexts, including professor of, department of or studies in, yields long lists of lexicalized noun phrases, including public safety, abstract state machines, complex systems, computer graphics, and mathematical morphology. The study reported here identifies lexical and syntactic contexts that harbor lexicalized noun phrases and submits them to a machine-learning algorithm that classifies the lexical status of noun phrases extracted from the text. Results from several evaluations show that the linguistic evidence extracted from the corpus is relevant to the classification of noun phrases in engineering text. Informal evidence from other subject domains suggests that the results can be generalized
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
What do application profiles reveal about the learning object metadata standard? by Carol Jean Godby( )

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

A metalanguage for describing Internet resources by Carol Jean Godby( )

2 editions 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
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
Incorporating educational vocabulary in learning object metadata schemas by Jian Qin( )

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
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
Mapping ONIX to MARC by Carol Jean Godby( )

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
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
Incorporating educational vocabulary in learning object metadata schemas by Jian Qin( )

1 edition published in 2003 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Educational metadata schemas are obligated to provide learning-related attributes in learning objects. The examination of current educational metadata standards found that few of them have places for incorporating educational vocabulary. Even within the educational category of metadata standards there is a lack of learning-related vocabulary for characterizing attributes that can help users identify the type of learning, objective, or context. The paper discusses the problems with examples from a learning object taxonomy compiled by the authors
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
