Abstract

Despite growing volume and popularity, institutional video content is the least curated and least discoverable of all content types. Although users expect ubiquitous access to all content, regardless of format, video is under-catalogued/indexed and therefore not easily accessible. Video, especially institutional video, is not available to discovery services, and rights management concerns inhibit availability. Therefore, libraries are missing an opportunity to showcase their relevance. This paper presents research on the hypothesis that utilizing automated transcription to programmatically create rich metadata promotes discoverability and usability of institutionally created video.

Abstract

The University Digitisation Centre (UDC) at the University of Melbourne has been working towards implementing the Embedded Metadata Manifesto since its inception in 2009. This paper follows the evolution of the in-house information systems developed by UDC to incorporate the embedding of descriptive metadata as part of a standard digitisation process. Central to this has been the development of novel ways of accessing metadata from the various library catalogues via their public interfaces. Challenges arising from the re-use of catalogue metadata in non-library systems may provide additional insights as libraries attempt to re-invent the catalogue.

Abstract

The State Library of South Australia (SLSA) is honouring the memory of those who served at the front lines on World War 1 and on the home front, through a series of projects. The principal project is the creation of a new web resource of the records of the South Australian Red Cross Information Bureau (SARCIB). The web resource will utilise volunteers and provide opportunities for community created content. By leveraging existing tools such as MARC, the project will lead the way for future delivery of our collections and provide an opportunity for SLSA to apply Linked Open Data. It is anticipated this resource will be available early in 2015.

Abstract

Since the new building opened in 1996, the Shanghai Library has strived to create a borderless hybrid library. Taking advantage of the consolidation of the Shanghai Library and the Institute of Scientific and Technical Information of Shanghai (ISTIS), the new institution has developed a knowledge service system in an all-round way for the general public, for the research and business community, and for the policy-makers and legislators, and also a digital library system to integrate all the conventional and electronic resources and to extend the hybrid services to all the libraries in Shanghai. The presentation will focus on the library’s innovative, integrative and interactive hybrid services as well as some technical development including Chinese metadata and cataloguing programs.

Abstract

During 2003 Monash University Library engaged in a major redesign of the library databases web site. The basis of this was a program which used MARC records from Monash’s Endeavour Voyager catalogue to generate online electronic journal subject lists. The new databases page was intended to make for easier updating, and to allow us to respond to known user issues. In theory this was straightforward. In practice a number of issues were raised. The paper looks at how Monash resolved these issues, while commenting on the relationship between metadata and technology. Some future directions will also be discussed.

Abstract

Four years out, this paper revisits the theme of VALA2000 and looks at the extent to which integrated library management systems have been developed to operate as hybrid library systems by focussing on the National Library of Australia’s requirements in this area. A range of commercial portal products now extend (and may eventually replace) the OPAC. However, there is still a gap in the market place for workflow systems supporting the routine digitisation of collection material. In addition, library system vendors are only just beginning to provide the level of support needed by libraries that wish to build innovative web-based services based on the catalogue.

Abstract

Although the concept of a subject gateway has only risen to prominence in Australia during the last two years, several university library consortia and other education- based initiatives, including EdNA Online and the Australian Digital Theses Project, have already been successful in achieving collaborative approaches for the delivery of national access to electronic resources. The critical success factors realised, including the deployment of metadata and the community approaches to problem solving, mean that Australia is positioned to participate in new initiatives exploring service provision in a national infrastructure for integrated research and information access.

Abstract

Universities need to consider metadata as a means of managing and providing access to information resources. A considerable commitment is required to assess standards; train staff and utilise metadata appropriately. The University of New South Wales Library has made a start and has embedded metadata in Library Web pages, created metadata for subject gateways – MetaChem and AVEL, and is generating metadata for the Australian Digital Theses Project.
