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.

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.

Assessing Metadata Utilization: An Analysis of MARC Content Designation Use

Assessing Metadata Utilization: An Analysis of MARC Content Designation Use

Date: 2003
Creator: Moen, William E. & Benardino, Penelope
Description: This paper discusses metadata utilization. Abstract: Metadata schemes emerge to meet community and user requirements, and they evolve over time to meet changing requirements. This paper reports results of an analysis of a large sample of MARC 21 bibliographic records. MARC 21 is an encoding scheme related closely to metadata elements occurring in library bibliographic records. The records were analyzed for the utilization of content designation available in MARC 21. Results indicate that less than 5% of available content designation accounts for over 80% of occurrences. The implications of these findings affect indexing policies, system design, and can inform setting requirements for extending a metadata scheme based on a threshold of community requirements.

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.

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."
