Review of the Tools and Software to Support Interoperability

Review of the Tools and Software to Support Interoperability

Date: July 15, 2006
Creator: Polyakov, Serhiy; Moen, William E. & Phillips, Mark Edward
Description: Report for an Institute of Museum and Library Sciences (IMLS) Grant Partner Uplift Project. This report reviews the tools and software to support interoperability between digital repositories and the Library of Texas federated search. This review will be used for providing recommendations for best practices and workflows for installing software and tools onto Digital Asset Management Systems (DAMS) and selected databases that support search interoperability.

Open Access: A New Paradigm for Knowledge Creation, Dissemination, and Access

Open Access: A New Paradigm for Knowledge Creation, Dissemination, and Access

Date: April 28, 2009
Creator: Moen, William E. & Hartman, Cathy Nelson
Description: Paper discussing open access as a new paradigm for knowledge creation, dissemination, and access. Abstract: The notion of open access to scholarly information is not new. In recent years, however, it has taken on prominence within the broader context of scholarly work, communication, and publishing. This brief paper intends to highlight and clarify key aspects of open access to assist UNTs initial discussions of the utility of open access for UNT researchers and scholars.

The Potential for Web Services to Enhance Information Access to Legacy Data: An Exploratory Study and Application

The Potential for Web Services to Enhance Information Access to Legacy Data: An Exploratory Study and Application

Date: February 16, 2005
Creator: Oguz, Fatih & Moen, William E.
Description: Paper discussing the potential for web services to enhance information access to legacy data. Abstract: This paper presents an overview of an exploratory research project to identify, describe, and investigate the applicability of the Web services (WS) approach to access legacy data. In the Z Texas Implementation Component of the Library of Texas (ZLOT) project, the ZLOT technical team has implemented a multi-purpose Texas Library Directory Database (TLDD) that is used as a back-end database to support the Library of Texas (LOT) Resource Discovery Service (RDS). The researchers developed and implemented a prototype WS application to show how a legacy system can be accessed and its data can be searched and retrieved. This study focused on understanding how requests and responses between software applications are encoded in Extensible Markup Language (XML).

Improving Z39.50 Interoperability: Z39.50 Profiles and Testbeds for Library Applications

Improving Z39.50 Interoperability: Z39.50 Profiles and Testbeds for Library Applications

Date: August 2001
Creator: Moen, William E.
Description: This paper discusses Z39.50 interoperability. Abstract: An operating assumption for the networked environment is that many different information systems need to interoperate for users to successfully discover and retrieve distributed resources. Meaningful interoperability is often elusive. In the library community, the Z39.50 standard protocol (ISO 23950/ANSI/NISO Z39.50) for information retrieval promised seamless and transparent networked access to library resources. Too often, the reality has not lived up to the promise. This paper discusses two efforts that offer solution paths to Z39.50 interoperability.

Learning from Artifacts: Metadata Utilization Analysis

Learning from Artifacts: Metadata Utilization Analysis

Date: 2006
Creator: Moen, William E.; Miksa, Shawne D., 1969-; Eklund, Amy; Polyakov, Serhiy & Snyder, Gregory
Description: This paper describes the MARC Content Designation Utilization Project, which is examining a very large set of metadata records as artifacts of the library cataloging enterprise. This is the first large-scale examination of descriptive metadata utilization. Presents an overview of study activities and suggests the study's significance to the broader use of metadata in digital libraries.

Mapping the Interoperability Landscape for Networked Information Retrieval

Mapping the Interoperability Landscape for Networked Information Retrieval

Date: June 2001
Creator: Moen, William E.
Description: This paper discusses interoperability of networked information. Interoperability is a fundamental challenge for networked information discovery and retrieval. Often treated monolithically in the literature, interoperability is multifaceted and can be analyzed into different types and levels. This paper discusses an approach to map the interoperability landscape for networked information retrieval as part of an interoperability assessment research project.

Assessing Metadata Utilization: An Analysis of MARC Content Designation Use

Assessing Metadata Utilization: An Analysis of MARC Content Designation Use

Date: 2003
Creator: Moen, William E. & Benardino, Penelope
Description: This paper discusses metadata utilization. Abstract: Metadata schemes emerge to meet community and user requirements, and they evolve over time to meet changing requirements. This paper reports results of an analysis of a large sample of MARC 21 bibliographic records. MARC 21 is an encoding scheme related closely to metadata elements occurring in library bibliographic records. The records were analyzed for the utilization of content designation available in MARC 21. Results indicate that less than 5% of available content designation accounts for over 80% of occurrences. The implications of these findings affect indexing policies, system design, and can inform setting requirements for extending a metadata scheme based on a threshold of community requirements.
