|Product Council Update||Dracine Hodges|
The SIG conveners attended today's Product Council meeting. Those updates can be seen in the Product Council meeting minutes. Hebis, a small consortia from Germany is a new member of OLE. They will be making contributions towards the FOLIO project. Marco Nepper will be their representative on the Product Council.
The consortia SIG attended, asking for guidance for next steps. There is a summary statement included in the Product Council minutes.
Special Collections and Archives Working Group, lead by Erin Treehorn, spoke at the meeting. They are deciding "next steps." They are wondering how they could become a subgroup to an existing SIG or SIGs.
Next WolfCon - May 1-3, 2019. The location has not be determined.
|Subgroup updates||Ann-Marie Breaux|
Data Import: MARC Bib-to-Inventory Instance standard mapping (Instance metadata MARC mapping working group needs to reconvene); will need to do something similar for MARC Holdings to Inventory Holdings soon (separate working group); more to come from Charlotte Whitt
David presented slides demonstrated for the MARCcat app's current design.
Tiziana presented demonstrated MARCcat's search results. They at @Cult, along with the MARCcat working group are working on refining search options such as filter by language and format, and what should display.
Search MARCcat holdings? (Duke question via chat): Answer: Yes. It still needs to be worked on, buy it is being planned for.>
Felix (via chat) - "Maybe it would make sense to highlight the subfields ($ + letter) in the preview." David commented that this is being considered.
Lisa (TAMU) - Expressed the desire that when authority headings are edited, those changes will automatically happen in the associated bibliographic records. Tiziana confirmed this is already present in MARCcat's functionality. The system already works this way. Jacquie: Will this functionality work with batch loads of authority records? Tiziana: Not sure, but believes it should work this way. Sarah cautioned the need for rigorous testing of this function. Christie agreed and asserted the need for robust reporting that accompanies batch import of authorities and automated processes that may happen as a result.
How are the bibliographic records "matched" or linked to their authority records? Is it a string match or an ID match?
Jessica (via chat): "If we have URI matching rather than string matching that will help a lot. Thanks."
Cornell (via chat): "We still have to follow RDA. We do not have URI matching!"
Tiziana proposed to postpone this discussion until we arrive at the point of discussing the management of authority records and authority headings.
