Z39.50 Interoperability Testing Framework for Online Library Catalogs Using Radioactive MARC Records

Z39.50 Interoperability Testing Framework for Online Library Catalogs Using Radioactive MARC Records

Date: June 20, 2004
Creator: Moen, William E.
Description: This document discusses a Z39.50 Interoperability Testing framework. In a first phase of the Z39.50 Interoperability Testbed, a large dataset of MARC records was used. In this work, the authors are exploring how a set of special, diagnostic MARC records can be developed and used to identify interoperability problems between a Z39.50 client and a Z39.50 server providing access to a database of bibliographic records supporting the search and retrieval functions of an online library catalog. The authors refer to these special, diagnostic records as radioactive MARC records. It discusses the various components and identifies the tasks related to developing and implementing the components.

Data Normalization Procedures on Decomposed MARC 21 Records

Data Normalization Procedures on Decomposed MARC 21 Records

Date: October 25, 2001
Creator: Kim, Ed & Moen, William E.
Description: In this document, the authors present some aspects of data normalization of the decomposed records to improve the results of analysis. The data normalization processes use pattern-matching techniques to eliminate and/or generalize anomalous characters and terms. Since the unit of analysis in preparing the test dataset of 400,000 MARC 21 records is a "word," there was a need for data normalization to provide reliability in the subsequent analysis.
