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.

Decomposing MARC 21 Records for Analysis

Decomposing MARC 21 Records for Analysis

Date: October 1, 2002
Creator: Moen, William E.
Description: This document discusses decomposing MARC 21 records for analysis. To prepare the test dataset of the 1% sample of MARC 21 records from the WorldCat database for use in the Z39.50 Interoperability Testbed, the authors need to be able to efficiently analyze the records to determine relevant records to be returned for a set of test searches. The first step in that analysis is to determine the occurrence of test search terms in specific records. This document describes the general approach for this analysis and identifies specifications for the analysis.
