Who is speaking on November 15 and what will they be addressing?

*Eliminating Conflicts in Ebook Metadata Patricia Payton*, *Senior Manager,
Provider Relations, Proquest/Bowker*

Harmonizing and enhancing ebook metadata to print metadata is a focus for
many publishers. Yet there is still work to be done. Some variations may
occur including sales rights, publication dates, and pricing. Learn more
about ebook metadata pitfalls by understanding how data recipients read and
interpret your data. Also learn how NISO is bringing publishers and
librarians together to set best practices for key ebook metadata points.

*Conglomerating and Collocating Collections without Convoluted Concoction
Scott Anderson*, *Associate Professor & Information Systems Librarian,
Millersville University*

Scott Anderson will discuss how Millersville University is working with
several vendor partners (Atlas Systems / EBSCO / TIND) to inject local /
special collections content into its own discovery service and expose those
collections to the open web via linked data. The idea is to use as much of
the same workflow to harvest from finding aids, repositories, local
catalog(s), into MARC defined elements to be transformed into linked data
for the open web and associated applications, ingest into other local
services, and perhaps collocated with identified subscription products.

*Manipulating Metadata to Enhance Access*
*Marilyn White*, *E-Resource Librarian, **Briget Wynne,** Reference and
Interlibrary Loan Librarian, **and* *Katelynd Bucher, **Metadata Librarian,
Research Library Group, National Institute of Standards & Technology (NIST)*

The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) Research Library
is a federal library located in Gaithersburg, Maryland. The NIST Research
Library’s mission is to support and enhance the research activities of the
NIST scientific and technological community through a comprehensive program
of knowledge management.

To fulfill this mission, the Library makes available to its researchers the
following: proprietary databases, journals and e-books. In addition, the
Library makes available to the public, agency content such as: the NIST
Digital Archives (NDA), oral histories, photo collections, NIST Museum
objects, and NIST authored technical publications. The Library also
supports the publication and digitization of the agency’s Journal of
Research NIST and NIST Technical Series reports.

This presentation will discuss how the advances in the technological
landscape and user behavior have influenced changes in the Library over a
period of 25 years and how we have arrived at our current hybrid
configuration. We will also look at the decisions and challenges we face to
make our systems compatible and how we have made uniformity in our metadata
to disseminate our content across multiple platforms. We will give an
overview of our current environment as well as discuss specific metadata
tools and processes we used to achieve our goals.

The Library has content housed in a variety of platforms such as: Govinfo,
Internet Archive, our agency repository (NIST Digital Archive), our own
publication servers at the agency as well as registration of our DOIs with
CrossRef. In addition, we also are now depositing our NIST-authored,
externally reviewed content with PubMed Central. All these various entities
require their unique metadata formats. In addition to this, we have also
launched our discovery layer which acts as a single search mechanism on
campus, for researchers to access all our proprietary content and agency
publications. We’ll discuss how we corralled all our metadata, created
consistencies across platforms and made our discovery layer work within the
confines of our hybrid system.

Because of our efforts, we anticipate increased discovery and use of our
proprietary resources and agency publications. We hope we will see an
increased impact through frequent citing of NIST authored content which
will raise the agency’s profile in the scientific community.
