NYTSL Fall 2017 Program
Stringing Us Along: From Traditional Authorities to Identity Management in Library Technical Services

Tuesday November 14, 2017: 5:00PM – 7:45PM
(Reception 5:00PM – 6:00PM; Program 6:00PM – 7:45PM)

Margaret Liebman Berger Forum, Room 227 – Stephen A. Schwarzman Building – New York Public Library

How can we make authority work easier and more efficient, while retaining quality metadata? What is identity management and how is it different from traditional authorities?

In the current environment, traditional authority work is complex, it requires extensive training, it is usually very time consuming, and can only be accomplished by establishing one unique name at a time in the Library of Congress Name Authority File. But what if there was another way? The PCC Vision, Mission and Strategic Directions document, 2015-2017, Strategic Direction 3 states: “Provide leadership for the shift in authority control from an approach primarily based on creating text strings to one focused on managing identities and entities.” To accomplish this Direction, the PCC formed the Task Group on Identity Management in NACO and began the PCC-ISNI Pilot project. ISNI is the International Standard Name Identifier, it is an ISO standard, and it being tested by the PCC as a potential platform for “NACO-Lite” to provide an identity management alternative. In this talk learn more about ISNI and why it matters for libraries.

About the Presenter:

Currently she is the Systems/Metadata Librarian at the Bard College Stevenson Library.

Spring 2017 Program and Workshop: MarcEdit with Terry Reese

Spring 2017 Program: Terry Reese on MarcEdit
Wednesday May 3, 2017: 5:00PM – 7:45PM
Stephen A. Schwarzman Building – New York Public Library

Spring 2017 Workshop: Advance MarcEdit
Thursday May 4, 2017: 9:00AM-2:30PM
Science, Industry and Business Library (SIBL) – New York Public Library

Please join us for a talk by Terry Reese, creator of MarcEdit, free software developed primarily for the library cataloging community to lower technical barriers and empower librarians to take more control over their organization’s metadata. Created in 1999 as a global editing utility for MARC data, MarcEdit has since evolved into a full suite of tools to create, harvest, and manipulate a variety of non-MARC metadata as well. This presentation will provide an overview of the project, how it was started and where it is going.

In addition to the evening program, Terry Reese will be offering a MarcEdit workshop. In this hands-on session, participants will have the opportunity to learn about some of the more advanced-level functions in MarcEdit, including (but not limited to) Regular Expressions, automation, working with Linked data and non XML-data, the API/Command line tool, and ILS integration. Participants are encouraged to submit their own topics of interest and troubleshooting questions when signing up. Some basic knowledge of MarcEdit will be assumed. Space is limited!
