Social metadata for libraries, archives, and museums : executive summary by Karen Smith-Yoshimura( )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 29 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Presents highlights of research about "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. Part 1 of the report series provided an overview of all the social metadata sites reviewed as part of the work of the RLG Social Metadata Working Group. Part 2 of the report series summarized the findings of a survey conducted in October-November 2009 of managers of websites that support the creation of "social metadata." The final report in the series, Part 3 offered recommendations for practice and an inventory of selected readings consulted during the course of work to prepare the report series
Registering researchers in authority files by Karen Smith-Yoshimura( )

2 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 29 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Registering Researchers in Authority Files Task Group has examined a range of researcher registration and profiling services. A number of approaches to providing authoritative researcher IDs have emerged, but they tend to be limited by discipline, affiliation, or publisher. The Task Group developed use cases and functional requirements for researcher ID management systems and then compared the functional requirements against a sample of currently available systems to identify gaps, challenges and opportunities. A key objective of this work was to understand how the various types of researcher ID schemes can be leveraged to support improved discoverability of research output for individual authors and institutions
Creating library linked data with Wikibase : lessons learned from Project Passage by Carol Jean Godby( )

1 edition published in 2019 in English and held by 28 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

After the pilot, the co-authors of this report discussed the long-term issues raised by their Project Passage experiences and the potential impact of linked data in library resource description workflows. The following key issues were identified: The transition from human-readable records to knowledge graphs represents a paradigm shift; Although some current tasks and practices will still be necessary, others will become obsolete, and some new tasks will be needed; Crowd-sourcing has the potential for enriching the knowledge graphs created by libraries, as Wikibase offers options for soliciting, accepting, evaluating, and managing user contributions; Interoperability between Wikibase, Wikidata, and other linked data sources remains an open question deserving follow-up investigation. The report concludes with findings, reflections, and areas for future research"--Page 8

This report -- an overview of all the social metadata sites reviewed -- is one of three RLG Partner Social Metadata Working Group reports looking at the who, what, where, and whys of socially-contributed metadata.

Addressing the challenges with organizational identifiers and ISNI by Karen Smith-Yoshimura( )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 26 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report focuses on organizational identifiers from the perspective of academic institutions. Their ranks and reputation often determine their success in obtaining funding and attracting or retaining faculty. Identifiers provide the "glue" for institutions and funder systems to support comparing and ranking the outputs of the research process; assessing the impact of grants between institutions and their funders; and tracking and collating publications between researchers and their publishers. The report outlines a number of scenarios where the International Standard Name Identifier (ISNI) can be used to disambiguate organizations, including real-world examples

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 26 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

Transitioning to the Next Generation of Metadata by Karen Smith-Yoshimura( )

1 edition published in 2020 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Transitioning to the Next Generation of Metadata synthesizes six years (2015-2020) of OCLC Research Library Partners Metadata Managers Focus Group discussions and what they may foretell for the "next generation of metadata." The firm belief that metadata underlies all discovery regardless of format, now and in the future, permeates all Focus Group discussions.  Yet metadata is changing. Innovations in librarianship are exerting pressure on metadata management practices to evolve as librarians are required to provide metadata for far more resources of various types and to collaborate on institutional or multi-institutional projects with fewer staff.  This report considers: Why is metadata changing? How is the creation process changing? How is the metadata itself changing? What impact will these changes have on future staffing requirements, and how can libraries prepare? This report proposes that transitioning to the next generation of metadata is an evolving process, intertwined with changing standards, infrastructures, and tools. Together, Focus Group members came to a common understanding of the challenges, shared possible approaches to address them, and inoculated these ideas into other communities that they interact with
