This is a correction to the previous email I sent on the NISO Data Movement and Management webinar. The correct date is MARCH 18. It was shifted a week so as not to conflict with the ACRL meeting. My apologies for any confusion this may have caused.
The complete corrected notice is below:
NISO will be holding a webinar on Data Movement and Management on March 18, 2009 from
1:00 – 2:30 p.m. (Eastern Time)
About the Webinar
Modern libraries consist of a variety of complicated data systems, many containing a portion of the data needed to address any specific question. Often data needs to be extracted from one system and moved to or compared with information in another. Frequently, these systems don’t communicate well. This webinar will explore a number of ongoing data transfer and transformation consensus projects. Whether it is collections or holdings information distributed via ONIX, pricing data via CORE, or usage data via SUSHI, the community is working on strategies and structures to easily transfer data from one system to another. Each of these initiatives will contribute to saving librarians time and eventually money in managing their operations.
Speakers and topics for the program are:
— “The Landscape of Data Movement and Management in Libraries” by Tim Jewell (Director, Information Resources and Scholarly Communication, University of Washington Libraries)
— “The Extensible Catalog – Reusing Library Metadata” by Jennifer Bowen (Director of Metadata Management, River Campus Libraries)
— “CORE: Cost of Resource Exchange: Combining Cost and Use Data in Libraries” by Jeff Aipperspach (Senior Product Manager, Serials Solutions)
— “The OAI-ORE Project – What It Is and How People Can Apply It” by Michael L. Nelson (Dept of Computer Science, Old Dominion University)
