Bibliographic Roadmap

Improve the ability of our data to be consumed and manipulated

Improve the ability of our data to be consumed and manipulated by machines (e.g. limit assumptions about consumers/users) A strategy emphasized in order to improve interoperability between existing systems and standards, enable better visibility of library data (bibliographic data) for end users on the web, enable use by a broader variety of users and systems with no boundaries, enhance collaborative and shared infrastructures... more »

Bibliographic Roadmap

Work to make vocabularies work across systems

Work to make vocabularies work across systems - create and manage mappings; work on diversity issues, such as how to connect bibliographic data to scientific data; explore exchange formats and application profiles.

 

Some considerations are: mapping challenges, data inconsistency, directions, vocabularies, etc. as described in https://sites.google.com/site/nisobibrm/breakout-group-interoperability

Bibliographic Roadmap

Create prototypes to determine format/interaction issues

Create prototypes to tease out what needs to be addressed by interchange formats and what needs to be addressed by interactions between systems (API calls). Prototypes should include different models: complete import of data; just linking; hybrids.

Bibliographic Roadmap

Further explore rules-related challenges

Given the impact of rules, authority issues, where core, basic data is required; there is a need for extensibility/scalability; and data and standards are dynamic, should we: identify the scale of the problem; determine its starting point; determine format and cataloging rules; manage semantic vocabularies and content through application community profiles; determine question of how one size can fit all (libraries,... more »

Ideas for Webinars

Altmetrics

As scholars are increasing using Web 2.0 tools like CiteULike, Mendeley, Twitter, and blogs there is an opportunity to create new filters.These metrics show web-based traces of research communication like citations from social networlking links, press coverage, comments, etc. These metrics are complementary to COUNTER, impact factor and eigenfactor reports. Realizing this, many authors have begun to call for investigation... more »
