OCLC-MARC Format Update 2011 ◦ http://www.oclc.org/support/documentation/wo rldcat/tb/260/
OCLC-MARC Format Update 2012 ◦ http://www.oclc.org/support/documentation/wo rldcat/tb/261/
LC Working Group of the Future of Bibliographic Control Format ◦ Accommodate and distinguish expert-, automated- and self-generated metadata, including annotations
Recommendation ◦ “Work with the library and other interested communities to specify and implement a carrier for bibliographic information that is capable of representing the full range of data of interest to libraries, and of facilitating the exchange of such data both within the library community and with related communities.”
Full capabilities of RDA would be more useful to the library community if the limitations of MARC were lifted New Bibliographic Framework will ◦ Broaden participation in the network of cataloging resources ◦ Enable librarians to better link their patrons to resources of all kinds ◦ Better contain costs
LC will continue to support MARC during the transition and for years to come
In use for over 40 years and has built up redundancies ◦ Longevity complicates simplification ◦ Tags can’t be reused because older records still exist
If data were reorganized, old data would be incompatible with new data Limitations exist because of choices made in the initial development of the format
eXtensible Markup Language (XML) ◦ ◦ ◦ ◦ ◦
Flexible Almost unlimited tagging capability Very mature tools Continues to be developed at a rapid rate Has auxiliary standards for eXtensible Stylesheet Language Transformations (XSLT) XML Query (Xquery)
◦ Led to the development of MARCXML
Metadata Object Description Schema (MODS) and Metadata Authority Description Schema (MADS) ◦ XML schema compatible with MARC bibliographic and authority data ◦ Word-based tagging
LC is integrating RDA into MARC 21 LC Vocabularies are available as linked data ◦ Authorities, MARC codes
Increased interest in and experimentation with Resource Description Framework (RDF)-based models
Broad accommodation of content rules and data models ◦ Agnostic to cataloging rules ◦ Accommodate RDA, AACR2, DACS, VRA, Core, CCO
Provision for data that accompanies or supports bibliographic description ◦ Holdings, authority, classification, preservation, technical, rights, archival metadata
Accommodation of textual data, linked data with URIs instead of text, and both
Consideration of the relationships between and recommendations for communications format tagging, record input conventions, and system storage manipulation
◦ Future framework likely to be seen less by catalogers ◦ Internal storage displays and input screens are unlikely to have the close relationship to a communications format
Consideration of the needs of all sizes and types of libraries Continuation of maintenance of MARC until no longer necessary
Compatibility with MARC-based records Provision of transformation from MARC 21 to a new bibliographic environment
Data model focused on ◦ the Web environment ◦ Linked Data principles and mechanisms ◦ Resource Description Framework (RDF)
W3C (World Wide Web Consortium) recommended method for conceptual description or modeling of information Data can be “serialized” or “written out” in several different syntax formats, one of which is XML (eXtensible Markup Language) Data may be used in relational databases Triplestores (databases designed for storing and querying RDF data) are readily available and promise to provide the library community with more options on how to store and retrieve its data
Collaborate with principal MARC partner institutions Ask forums such as MARC advisory bodies to review and provide input Seek advice from networks like OCLC for prototyping and developing sample implementations
LC will develop a two-year grant application LC will organize consultative groups to support development and prototyping activities

How headings are controlled in Connexion Client and Connexion Browser
Control Headings functionality allows users to link headings in bib records to authority records OCLC has developed a stand-alone batch service that will evaluate all bib records and control more headings
Criteria for record selection ◦ 040 no $b or $b eng (i.e., cataloged in English) 1xx 6xx second indicator 0, 655 second indicator 7, $2 lcgft 700, 710, 711, 730 800, 810, 811, 830
◦ 040 $b other than eng 6xx, 2nd indicator 0 655, 2nd indicator 7, $2 lcgft
◦ A partially-controlled or fully controlled heading
Attempt to control unqualified names (personal names that do not have a $b, $c, $d, and/or $q) ◦ Smith, John [unqualified name]
Control a heading to an undifferentiated authority record ◦ Smith, John [undifferentiated name]
Cause automated tag flips of any kind
Automatically expand dates for personal name headings Partially control series fields and automatically append $v Control linked non-Latin script headings for candidate personal name headings Apply appropriate punctuation changes
Attempt to control partially-controlled headings Uncontrol 1xx, 7xx, 8xx fields if 040 $b is not eng Delete a geographic subdivision from a subject heading if the heading can be completely controlled and no element of the heading can be subdivided geographically
Control non-qualified personal names Control headings that have no exact match or that match only partially Control headings that are mis-tagged Control headings that contain typographical errors
“Controlling More Headings in WorldCat” ◦ http://www.oclc.org/news/announcements/2012/a nnouncement1.htm
In 2007, LC began to develop genre form terms for ◦ ◦ ◦ ◦ ◦ ◦ ◦
Movies Sound recordings Maps Law Literature Music Religion
At first, terms were incorporated into LCSH In 2010, LC announced plans to separate the list into a Genre/Form Thesaurus
In Authority Records: ◦ 008, position 11: z (Other) ◦ 040, $f: lcgft ◦ 010, new prefix gf will replace sh
In Bibliographic Records: ◦ 655 -7 $a [Term] $2 lcgft
LC will develop a separate manual for genre/form terms in 2012
Cancellation of terms for moving images
Approximately 90 terms to be cancelled Fictitious character headings will be created instead ◦ Cisco Kid films – Cisco Kid (Fictitious character) ◦ Affects 13 headings
Franchise-based terms will rely on titles to provide access ◦ Planet of the Apes films ◦ Individual titles include Planet of the Apes, Beneath the Planet of the Apes, Escape from the Planet of the Apes, etc.
LCGFT should not repeat information found elsewhere in the bib record LCSH can still be used ◦ Star Wars films – History and criticism can be used as a 650 for works about the Star Wars films
Cancelled terms will be added as “former heading” UF Scope note will be added to each of the corresponding LCSH headings: ◦ “This heading is not used for individual [films or television programs], which are entered under headings appropriate to the content, genre, and/or form of the film.”
The 13 fictitious character subject headings were scheduled to be added in late February 2012

Overview of Resource Description and Access and information about OCLC’s implementation plans
Library of Congress will move to RDA effective March 31, 2013 National Agricultural Library, National Library of Medicine, British Library, Library & Archives Canada, and National Library of Australia have agreed to move to RDA in the first quarter of 2013 Deutsche Nationalbibliothek (DNB) will move to RDA in mid-2013 RDA test records exist with “rda” in $e of the 040 field ILS vendors updating their systems to accommodate RDA
Formerly known as Rule Interpretations The rules are theoretical The interpretations are the rules in practice Many rules will change once the interpretations are in place
RDA is a bridge from AACR2 to ?? RDA can’t be too radical a departure because both AACR2 and RDA have to be accommodated in the same catalog After RDA is in place, more changes will be possible
“On the web” vs. “Of the web” (Karen Coyle) RDA can be stored as a MARC record, but it doesn’t have to be ◦ Future scenario: FRBR/FRAD grouped by entity
Prepares libraries for Web 3.0 ◦ Semantic web ◦ Machines understand the meaning of information
RDA sets the stage and gives programmers options (analogy of train switching tracks)
Data elements more precisely defined ◦ Breaking down subfield data more specifically, e.g., 300 $b
Collocation – group together similar results
Lessen the Anglo-American bias ◦ Provide as much detail for other sacred scriptures as has been provided for the Bible ◦ RDA is more adaptable to other calendars and numbering schemes
Improve compatibility with other metadata communities ◦ Archivists, publishers, digital repositories
Eliminate confusion ◦ Data had to fit on a 3x5 catalog card Abbreviations Transcribe exactly what’s on the item
Don’t omit contributors just because there are 3 or more
◦ Discontinue Latin abbreviations and replace them with explanatory phrases (for example “and others” instead of et al.)
It’s MARC not RDA that most greatly impacts our catalogs RDA affects: ◦ What information is included ◦ How the information is entered
MARC affects: ◦ The structure of the database ◦ How the data can be manipulated
AACR published in 1967; AACR2 published in 1988 Standard for description of, and provision of access points to, library materials
Developed in 1960s Focused on catalog card production Protocol for the exchange, use, and interpretation of bibliographic data
Can be the descriptive standard for MARC just as AACR2 has been
MARC 21 has been revised to accommodate RDA
Based on a theoretical framework Designed for the digital environment Broader in scope than AACR2
Data has to be encoded and displayed RDA Appendix D: Record Syntaxes for Descriptive Data RDA Appendix E: Record Syntaxes for Access Point Control
