A Study of State Library Agencies' Information Technology Standards Policies and Practices

A Study of State Library Agencies' Information Technology Standards Policies and Practices

Date: August 15, 2000
Creator: Moen, William E. & Shobowale, Gloria C.
Description: This report discusses standards in state library agencies. Little is known about state library agencies' policies for standards adoption and use. This study, undertaken in 1998, attempted to bridge the gap of information and understanding about the current situation of state library agencies' use, opportunities and issues related to technical standards.

A Study of State Library Agencies' Information Technology Standards Policies and Practices

A Study of State Library Agencies' Information Technology Standards Policies and Practices

Date: August 15, 2000
Creator: Moen, William E. & Shobowale, Gloria C.
Description: This report was commissioned and supported by the National Information Standards Organization (NISO). The dynamic pace of technology change challenges all organizations to identify and select standards on which to base mission-critical programs and services. State library agencies face particular challenges because of the increasing demands that publicly supported libraries provide access to increasing quantities and varieties of networked, digital and paper-based information resources and services. State library agencies are in a unique position to influence the adoption and implementation of standards to support statewide library resource sharing. This study, undertaken in 1998, attempted to bridge the gap of information and understanding about the current situation of state library agencies' use, opportunities and issues related to technical standards.

A Study of State Library Agencies' Information Technology Standards Policies and Practices: Final Report

A Study of State Library Agencies' Information Technology Standards Policies and Practices: Final Report

Date: August 15, 2000
Creator: Moen, William E. & Shobowale, Gloria C.
Description: This report is on a study of state library agencies' information technology standards policies and practices. The study provides the National Information Standards Organization with detailed information about the current use of standards by state library agencies and a set of recommendations to better serve the standards needs of state library agencies.

Resource Discovery Using Z39.50: Promise and Reality

Resource Discovery Using Z39.50: Promise and Reality

Date: November 2000
Creator: Moen, William E.
Description: This paper discusses the Z39.50 protocol. The ANSI/NISO Z39.50 protocol for information retrieval addresses the complex challenges of intersystem communication. Original uses envisioned for the protocol look very little like current implementations and uses. In the 1980s, users on one library catalog system would search and retrieve bibliographic records on a remote system. By the late 1990s, there was a need for discovering networked resources and integrating access to them. Yet, the Z39.50 protocol has addressed both these scenarios. This paper provides a portrayal of Z39.50 that explains its flexibility in response to a variety of information retrieval requirements in the networked environment.

Assessing Interoperability in the Networked Environment: Standards, Evaluation, and Testbeds in the Context of Z39.50

Assessing Interoperability in the Networked Environment: Standards, Evaluation, and Testbeds in the Context of Z39.50

Date: 2001
Creator: Moen, William E.
Description: This book chapter discusses interoperability in the networked environment. An underlying assumption of any network is that various components and processes will work together to produce desired results (e.g., data transmission, data interchange, reliability of services, etc.). The term interoperability has been used to characterize this working together, especially, the workings of lower level data communication components. Usage of the term has evolved to refer more generally to the extent to which different types of computers, networks, operating systems, and applications work together effectively to exchange information in a useful and meaningful manner. Miller (2000) suggests a perspective That is even more encompassing: he says that to be interoperable means "one should actively be engaged in the ongoing process of ensuring that the systems, procedures and culture of an organisation are managed in such a way as to maximize opportunities for exchange and re-use of information, whether internally or externally."

Six Month Status Report to The Institute of Museum and Library Services

Date: May 27, 2001
Creator: Moen, William E.
Description: This document provides a status report on the Z39.50 Interoperability Testbed Project (Z-Interop) covering the period of December 1, 2000 through April 30, 2001. The authors highlight activities and accomplishments to communicate to IMLS progress on their project. This period can be considered a project startup period.

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.

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.

SQL Data Analysis Procedures to Create Aggregate and Candidate Record Groups on Sample of Decomposed MARC Records Phase 1 Testing

SQL Data Analysis Procedures to Create Aggregate and Candidate Record Groups on Sample of Decomposed MARC Records Phase 1 Testing

Date: October 14, 2001
Creator: Yoon, JungWon & Moen, William E.
Description: This document describes the data analysis procedures developed to create the Aggregate and Candidate Record Groups using SQL statements. This is the preliminary version of these procedures tested and validated on a sample of decomposed MARC records. (For a description of how the MARC records were decomposed see the Z-Interop document, Decomposing MARC 21 Records for Analysis. A subsequent version may be necessary as the authors move to the procedures for the entire file of decomposed records.
