Creating Radioactive MARC Records and Z Queries Using the MARCdocs Database

Creating Radioactive MARC Records and Z Queries Using the MARCdocs Database

Date: December 2, 2004
Creator: Moen, William E.
Description: This document describes how the authors can extend a relational database of MARC documentation to store the appropriate information that will support the automatic generation of the special, diagnostic MARC records the authors will call radioactive MARC (RadMARC) records. The information contained in the database will also support the generation of the Z queries used in the interoperability testing.

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.

An Event Model for Herbarium Specimen Data in XML Poster Abstract

An Event Model for Herbarium Specimen Data in XML Poster Abstract

Date: 2010
Creator: Moen, William E.; Neill, Amanda K.; Best, Jason H.; McCotter, Melody; Xu, Hong & Huang, Jane Q.
Description: This abstract describes a poster about the Apiary Project. The Apiary Project, a collaboration of the Texas Center for Digital Knowledge at the University of North Texas and the Botanical Research Institute of Texas, is building a framework and web-based workflow for the extraction and parsing of herbarium specimen data. The workflow will support the transformation of written or printed specimen data into a high-quality machine-processable XML format. This poster describes an event model that informed the development of the Apiary XML Application Schema

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.

Procedures for Issuing Test Searches from Z-Interop Testbed Participant's Z-Client: Phase 1

Procedures for Issuing Test Searches from Z-Interop Testbed Participant's Z-Client: Phase 1

Date: October 1, 2002
Creator: Moen, William E.
Description: This document describes the procedures that participants in the Z39.50 Interoperability Testbed (Z-Interop Participant) are to use when testing Z39.50 client (Z-client) applications. The testing of a Z-Interop reference implementation Z39.50 server. Specifically, the attribute combination and other query components (e.g., Boolean operators) are reviewed, and a report of the results will be prepared for each Z-Interop participant.

Project Work Plan Draft

Project Work Plan Draft

Date: June 2004
Creator: Moen, William E.
Description: This document details a work plan to guide the planning and execution of a new phase of the Z39.50 Interoperability Testbed Project. In this phase, the project team will use a set of special, diagnostic MARC records 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 project team refers to these special, diagnostic records as radioactive MARC records. The project includes a number of separate but related activities. The structure of the work plan groups these activities into work areas, each of which describes the major activities, tasks, deliverables, timeliness, and responsibilities. The work areas are: creating MARC documentation database, developing radioactive MARC records, identifying test searches, enhancing indexing guidelines for searching, creating testing procedures and processes, validating radioactive MARC record approach for interoperability testing, and conducting interoperability testing. A number of these work areas will proceed in parallel, and there are interactions between the work areas.

Radioactive MARC Records Specifications

Radioactive MARC Records Specifications

Date: January 1, 2005
Creator: Moen, William E.
Description: This document provides the preliminary specifications for the different RadMARC records to be created for use in the Z-Interop2 interoperability testbed. Experience with these records may result in revisions to the specifications.
