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: 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.

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.

Indexing Guidelines to Support Z39.50 Profile Searches

Indexing Guidelines to Support Z39.50 Profile Searches

Date: February 1, 2002
Creator: Moen, William E.
Description: This document provides guidelines for indexing MARC 21 records to support a set of searches using Z39.50. The Z39.50 Interoperability Testbed Project (Z-Interop) uses these guidelines to index the 400,000 MARC 21 records that comprise the Z-Interop reference implementation of the Z39.50 server and online catalog.

Z-Interop Interoperability Testing Policies and Procedures: Phase 1 Testing

Z-Interop Interoperability Testing Policies and Procedures: Phase 1 Testing

Date: February 1, 2002
Creator: Moen, William E.
Description: This document provides an overview and the details of policies and procedures of the Z39.50 Interoperability Testbed Project (referred to as Z-Interop). Specifically, the document lays out the responsibilities and obligations of the Z-Interop testbed and the organizations that participate in interoperability testing. For purposes of this document, Z-Interop staff refers to all members of the Z39.50 Interoperability Testbed Project. Z-Interop participant refers to an individual or organization who tests its Z39.50 client or Z39.50 server through the Z39.50 Interoperability Testbed.
