Access to Film and Video Works: Surrogates for Moving Image Documents

Access to Film and Video Works: Surrogates for Moving Image Documents

Date: 1984
Creator: O'Connor, Brian Clark
Description: This doctoral dissertation discusses access to film and video works. Physical and intellectual access to moving image documents is insufficient, often insignificant, at the level of the individual user. Existing access tools suffer from a lack of recognition of the differences between linguistic text communication and image communication. Browsing and relevance judgements are made difficult by the physical realities of film and video documents - one cannot flip through them - and by the habits of serial and passive viewing.

Analysis Logic and Procedures for Creating a Test Dataset of MARC 21 Records for the Z39.50 Interoperability Testbed: Phase 1 Testing

Date: January 1, 2002
Creator: Moen, William E. & Holmes, Haley K.
Description: Report on the logic and procedures to create a test dataset of more than 400,000 (400K) MARC 21 records from the OCLC WorldCat database. This test dataset (hereafter referred to as the dataset) provides a controlled set of data for use in the Z39.50 Interoperability Testbed Project (hereafter referred to as Z-Interop). OCLC selected a 1% weighted sample from its WorldCat database, which contains approximately 45 million records. This document focuses on the analysis procedures used to prepare for Phase 1 Testing in Spring 2002. A subsequent version of this document will address the additional procedures for Phase 2 Testing scheduled for Summer 2002.

Assessing Descriptive Substance in Free-Text Collection-Level Metadata

Assessing Descriptive Substance in Free-Text Collection-Level Metadata

Date: September 24, 2008
Creator: Zavalina, Oksana; Palmer, Carole L.; Jackson, Amy S. & Han, Myung-Ja
Description: This presentation discusses free-text collection-level metadata. When many collections are brought together in a federation or aggregation, the attributes of the original collections can get lost. Collection-level metadata has the potential to provide important context about the purpose and features of individual collections, but these qualitative aspects are difficult to describe in a systematic way. This presentation reports on a content analysis of collection records in the IMLS Digital Collections and Content Collection Registry, conducted to analyze the kinds of substantive and purposeful information provided about 202 cultural heritage collections.

Assessing Descriptive Substance in Free-Text Collection-Level Metadata

Date: September 2008
Creator: Zavalina, Oksana; Palmer, Carole L.; Jackson, Amy S. & Han, Myung-Ja
Description: This paper discusses assessing descriptive substance in free-text collection-level metadata. Abstract: Collection-level metadata has the potential to provide important information about the features and purpose of individual collections. This paper reports on a content analysis of collection records in an aggregation of cultural heritage collections. The findings show that the free-text Description field often provides more accurate and complete representation of subjects and object types than the specified fields. Properties such as importance, uniqueness, comprehensiveness, provenance, and creator are articulated, as well as other vital contextual information about the intentions of a collector and the value of a collection, as a whole, for scholarly users. The results demonstrate that the semantically rich free-text Description field is essential to understanding the context of collections in large aggregations and can serve as a source of data for enhancing and customizing controlled vocabularies.
