No Longer Under Our Control: The Nature and Role of Standards in the 21st Century Library

No Longer Under Our Control: The Nature and Role of Standards in the 21st Century Library

Date: December 3, 2003
Creator: Moen, William E.
Description: This lecture script examines the nature and role of standards for the emerging 21st century library. Given the dynamic character of the networked environment, when are standards appropriate and how can they be developed in a manner consistent with the volatility of information technologies and changing library services? What are the roles and responsibilities of standards developing organizations, technology vendors, content creators, and librarians for standards? Do local practices of libraries threaten standards-based resource sharing and resource access technologies? Can local needs be balanced with broader library community responsibilities, and how do standards affect this balance? The speaker's assumption is that adherence to standards has never been more critical, yet his implementation experience with Z39.50 and MARC suggests that the commitment to national and international standards by librarians, technology vendors, and content creators are often an example of good intentions rather than actual practice. This standards disconnect threatens the emerging 21st century library's ability to deliver fundamental services in appropriate ways to their users.

Findings from the MetaScholar Projects: AmericanSouth and MetaArchive

Date: October 24, 2003
Creator: Halbert, Martin
Description: This article summarizes major findings of the MetaArchive and AmericanSouth projects, two of the seven projects of the 2001 Mellon Metadata Harvesting Initiative. This article will not deal with the activities undertaken in these projects, or the decision to conjoin the two projects to form the MetaScholar Initiative, as this information has been reported in detail elsewhere. [Halbert, 2003] Nor will it recount the already public motivations of the Mellon Foundation in funding these and other projects. [Waters, 2001] What will be reported are the general motivations that led to undertaking the MetaArchive and AmericanSouth projects, the questions that the projects set out to answer, and what findings were reached, both expected and unexpected.
