LD4P2 and Rare Materials: Reports from the Field

The Linked Data for Production projects aim to move library cataloging from a MARC-based system to a linked data environment. The first phase focused largely on developing specialized ontology extensions to BIBFRAME, the Library of Congress’s linked data model. The second phase of LD4P (“LD4P2”), spearheaded by four partner institutions (Cornell, Harvard, Stanford, and the University of Iowa School of Library and Information Science), aims to build tools and workflows to implement a communal prototype linked data environment (“Sinopia”). In addition, seventeen other cohort institutions were awarded subgrants to complete their own projects and aim to catalog natively in Sinopia (see the proposal descriptions here: https://www.google.com/url?q=https://docs.google.com/document/d/1qJNP6A-p1RWBiA7ITmV7yAZNh55B_eZa0EYMIoOFLa8/edit&sa=D&ust=1569957826663000&usg=AFQjCNG8C1bP9in144-cbBpdYSUrfUCy_w). LD4P2 will conclude on June 30, 2020, making RBMS 2020 an especially timely forum for sharing this work. This seminar will be a chance for the broader RBMS community to hear reports from those institutions that cataloged rare materials and special collections as part of their LD4P projects. Seminar presenters will describe the scope of their projects, workflows that were developed, successes and failures, and will take a look ahead to what they see as the viability of and needed developments for an RDF-based future for cataloging to work for the RBMS community. This seminar will also touch on the developments of the ARLIS-RBMS-SAA Art & Rare Materials (ARM) Ontology Extension Task Force, and how the LD4P participants used the ARM Ontology Extension to build more robust application profiles in the Sinopia editor. This seminar will be of interest to technical services staff to see how metadata practice is developing, to administrators who will need to plan for upcoming changes, to reference and access services staff who will need to interact with the data and with users of the data, and generally to anyone who uses library metadata for discovery of materials. This session is endorsed by the RBMS Bibliographic Standards Committee.
