Authority Control in Alma: Comparing Workflows and Results. Ligia Gomez, MARCIVE (Gold Sponsor); Holly Tomren, Temple University; Leanne Finnigan, Temple University
Deciding what to do in Alma regarding authority control has been a debate since Alma launched. MARCIVE, Inc. partnered with Temple University to get an evaluation of outsourced authority control services in Alma. We will learn about the workflow, compare match rates, and see if this service is the right fit for your library.
Scan and Fix: An Introduction to Indication Rules and Normalization Rules in Alma. Miriam C Nauenburg, University of West Georgia
This session will show how to scan and fix bibliographic and holding records in Alma sets by using MARC indication rules and MARC normalization processes. We will discuss indication rule logic, normalization rule syntax, rule salience, conditional vs. unconditional rules, normalization processes for MARC21 Bibliographic and Holding profiles, and best practices for working with indication and normalization rules. Example scenarios and rules will be provided. Note: This session assumes basic knowledge of Alma sets and manual jobs.
Diving into the Wreck: Post-Migration Data Cleanup at UNC Charlotte. Shoko Tokoro, UNC Charlotte; Joseph Nicholson, UNC Charlotte
This presentation will discuss the aftermath of the migration to Alma that J. Murrey Atkins Library at UNC Charlotte conducted in 2017 and our efforts to correct problems with our data that arose during the transition to the new system. We identified some of these problems in a previous ELUNA presentation, “Difficult Transitions” (2018), which focused on our experience as one of the first WorldShare Management Services (WMS) institutions to migrate to Alma. Drawing on two subsequent years of experience with Alma, this presentation will describe our efforts to clean and correct our data post migration and make records fully functional. Offering a deep dive into our cleanup strategies for print and electronic records, we will describe our learning experience with Alma and roadblocks we have encountered. Alma newcomers and veterans alike will gain a clearer understanding of how to tackle data cleanup projects using Alma functionalities and other tools.
Core Concepts and Practical Techniques for Successful Library Metadata Analysis. Stacie Traill, University of Minnesota; Martin Patrick, University of Minnesota
Metadata analysis is a growing need in libraries of all types and sizes, as demonstrated in many recent job postings. Data migration, transformation, enhancement, and remediation all require strong metadata analysis skills. But there is no well-defined body of knowledge or competencies list for library metadata analysis, leaving library staff with analysis-related responsibilities largely on their own to learn how to do the work effectively. In this presentation, two experienced metadata analysts will share what they see as core knowledge areas and problem solving techniques for successful library metadata analysis, along with some suggested tools. This session will help library staff and their managers develop a shared understanding of the skillsets required to meet their library’s metadata analysis needs. It will also be useful to individuals interested in pursuing a career in library metadata analysis and wondering how to enhance their existing knowledge and skills for success in analysis work.
