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.

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.

Digital Curation in the Academic Library Job Market

Date: October 2012
Creator: Kim, Jeonghyun; Warga, Edward & Moen, William E.
Description: With the increasingly important role librarians play in the fast-paced and data-intensive digital curation movement, there is a need to identify the qualifications and responsibilities expected by employers. An investigation of 110 recent job advertisements was conducted to identify competencies required of individuals working in the digital curation field. The job ads analysis serves as an important indicator of the emerging requirements for a qualified workforce in the field of digital curation in the academic library job market.
