Managing Metadata in Web-scale Discovery Systems Paperback / softback

Edited by Louise Spiteri

Paperback / softback

Description

This book shows you how to harness the power of linked data and web-scale discovery systems to manage and link widely varied content across your library collection. Libraries are increasingly using web-scale discovery systems to help clients find a wide assortment of library materials, including books, journal articles, special collections, archival collections, videos, music and open access collections.

Depending on the library material catalogued, the discovery system might need to negotiate different metadata standards, such as AACR, RDA, RAD, FOAF, VRA Core, METS, MODS, RDF and more. In Managing Metadata in Web-Scale Discovery Systems, editor Louise Spiteri and a range of international experts show you how to: maximize the effectiveness of web-scale discovery systemsprovide a smooth and seamless discovery experience to your usershelp users conduct searches that yield relevant resultsmanage the sheer volume of items to which you can provide access, so your users can actually find what they needmaintain shared records that reflect the needs, languages, and identities of culturally and ethnically varied communitiesmanage metadata both within, across, and outside, library discovery tools by converting your library metadata to linked open data that all systems can accessmanage user generated metadata from external services such as Goodreads and LibraryThing mine user generated metadata to better serve your users in areas such as collection development or readers' advisory.
