I love the Columbo theme!
Peggy Griesinger
20:53
"Just one more thing..." - the quintessential metadata/linked data project experience
Adam Schiff
23:11
wondering why subject strings are separated by > rather than the standard --
Mark Ehlert
23:59
Visual cue that each subdivision refines what comes before it?
Steven Folsom
25:24
Yes, Mark. And depending where you click (left to right, the subfields) will bring back different results.
Beth Cox
25:42
I may have missed this - what system does Cornell use?
Steven Folsom
25:48
Blacklight.
Jean Pajerek
25:52
Blacklight
Beth Cox

Thanks!

Stacy Ogilvie

Hah :)
Christine Eslao
26:49
Love this diagram.
Staci Ross
27:11
Same!
Laura Akerman
28:25
How/where do you get the match for Wikidata entities (Q numbers)? Is it always trustworthy?
Amy Stults
29:29
Is there another way to get the slides? My employer blocks all Google sites.
nate trail
30:45
So the counts are not dynamic? how often do you update the indexes then?
Steven Folsom
30:53
Perhaps we could also make a ppt and share.
Steven Folsom
31:18
Counts are dynamic, from the Blacklight Solr index.
Benjamin Riesenberg
31:26
@Amy we will post a downloadable version of slides at our IG page in ALA Connect
Alan Mark
31:30
For alternate subj headings when searches are done in your catalog do the results always match the "preferred form" of the subj heading?
Benjamin Riesenberg
31:33
Please look for this in a week or so
Amy Stults
32:09
@Benjamin-- thank you!
Steven Folsom
33:18
Alan, our blacklight documents include both preferred headings and variants, so if someone searches the preferred or variant term, the bib record will be in the results. We only display the preferred in the bib display.
Alan Mark
33:55
Thanks Steven!
Chris Pierce
35:41
wonder if you are going to make fields like occupation and locations actionable in the knowledge card?
Laura Akerman
36:14
Looks like you weren’t separating out “genre” from subject. Wasn’t that problematic?
Mark Ehlert
36:25
Are personal names backed up by undifferentiated NACO authority records presented to the public in a different manner?
Steven Folsom
37:07
Good question, Chris. We haven’t… yet. Partly because as Huda mentioned some of this information is being pulled into the page as it renders in the browser, and it’s not in the index driving some of that linking.
Valerie Furino
37:07
g2g, but just one more thing Huda...very interesting presentation!
Jeff Mixter
44:50
Do you have a public repo for the blacklight code?
Susan Morris
46:39
"affecting production" -- meaning affecting the production environment, or decreasing the number of records produced per week, etc.?
Steven Folsom
46:57
Jeff, https://github.com/cul-it/blacklight-cornell
Elizabeth Plantz
47:50
Are all records in the catalog linking like this? The catalog records are all in MARC?
Steven Folsom
49:53
Elizabeth, all our base bibliographic records are currently MARC bibliographic records, then we use connections to MARC authorities, and *if* we can get connections from the authority to external data… then we integrate it.
Staci Ross
50:55
Do you have an example of what displays when there is no authority/external data?
Christine Eslao
50:59
Re: the influence graph, had you considered limiting relationships to referenced statements? (I probably asked this before)
Steven Folsom
51:49
Christine, we’re not currently looking at some of that metadata about statements that Wikidata offers.
Christine Eslao
51:58
And have any of these gaps suggested projects for future Wikidata efforts (like edit-a-thons or PCC projects)?
Allison Bailund
52:05
and following up on Christine's question, or limiting it to non Wikipedia references?
Andie Craley
52:18
Blacklight is both the discovery tool and the ILS?
Steven Folsom
52:52
Blacklight is a discovery layer to put over an ILS. We’re currently using FOLIO as our ILS
Suzanne Pilsk
57:47
are you encouraging Cornell researchers to use ORCID?
Marja Rom
59:22
Do you add DOIs into MARC, ORCID into authorities?
Huda Khan
59:40
Regarding an earlier question about what shows when there is no external info, I'll try to show a URL if there is time
Ari Kleinman
59:58
what is the most challenging component of the implantation piece of this for you?
Christine Eslao
59:58
+1 collaborators and other relationships that can be more easily attested
Staci Ross
01:00:39
Thanks @Huda
Huda Khan
01:01:10
@Suzanne I think there is a general encouragement for ORCID use but Steven probably has a better answer : )
Huda Khan
01:01:46
@Marja, I don't think we add ORCIDs to authors. Not sure about DOIs. We'll ask Steven in a sec : )
Marja Rom
01:01:56
Thanks!
Laura Daniels
01:02:48
@Marja we don't programmatically add ORCID to authorities, but I personally add it if found when either creating new or editing existing new personal name authorities
Suzanne Pilsk
01:03:14
Thanks
Marja Rom
01:03:20
Yes, I do this also. Thanks!
Steven Folsom
01:03:40
Thanks Laura!
Marc McGee
01:04:17
This work looks so great! Congrats! Can you say more about the yaml external data source inclusion/exclusion workflows? How are exclusions identified? What's the volume? Who decides? Who produces the yaml? Will decisions be revisited?
Eva Bolkovac
01:04:17
what IR are you using?
Steven Folsom
01:04:36
Eva, DSpace
Staci Ross
01:04:52
Thank you!
Eva Bolkovac
01:04:53
Thanks

Alan Mark
01:05:04
SNAC uses associatedWith as a way to capture relationships between entities this might be a useful alternative to consider for Influenced or even Collaborators
Julie Bouchard
01:05:07
Ari asked what was the most challenging
Ari Kleinman
01:05:14
I asked around implementation challenges
Ari Kleinman
01:05:16
Yes thank you
Laura Akerman
01:05:21
Are the Wikidata matches reliable? Do you sometimes get the wrong person?
Dave Reser
01:06:28
What do you do with resources that are compilations (i.e., lots of different authors, titles, subjects, places)?
Steven Folsom
01:06:58
Dave, if they don’t have a 1XX, then currently there wouldn’t be an info box.
Laura Daniels
01:07:26
Here's an example I found of what happens with an undifferentiated name: https://newcatalog.library.cornell.edu/browse/info?authq=Wright,%20John.&browse_type=Author&headingtype=Personal%20Name&bib=7707617
Staci Ross
01:07:28
@Laura A. - Found a mixup here for editor/author "Caroll, David, 1932-", but there appears to be something wrong witht the Wikidata record (https://www.wikidata.org/wiki/Q5232189)
Laura Daniels
01:08:20
The info box does appear, because there is a name authority record:https://newcatalog.library.cornell.edu/catalog/7707617
Steven Folsom
01:09:19
Dave… If we decide to add info boxes for 7XXs we might have to think about how the user interaction looks like for a long list. The info buttons for many 7XX links would make the UI pretty busy.
Dave Reser
01:09:36
Thanks, Steven!
Ari Kleinman
01:09:54
Thank you!
Julie Bouchard
01:09:58
thank you!
Christine Eslao
01:09:58

Thanks, very interesting!

Thanks very much, very interesting presentation!

01:10:12
genres and subjects are not the same.
Staci Ross
01:10:18
Thank you! This was an excellent presentation and great example of linked data in production!

Great to see all this hard work! Thanks everyone!
Lynn Whittenberger
01:10:53
Thank you! this was a really great and informative presentation! Nice to see linked data actually used & useful in a discovery layer.
Andrea Kappler
01:11:10
This was very interesting! I wish it was a product that a public library could purchase. We just don't have enough staff to write/tweak the code for Blacklight.
Adam Schiff
01:11:12
It probably depends on whether the genre is coded 650 vs. 655
Laura Akerman
01:11:19
If I want books about bildungsroman, I have a tough time, sifting through all the bildungsromans
Mingyan Li
01:11:20
Thanks!
Sungmin Park
01:11:36
Thank you!
Suzanne Pilsk
01:11:43
thanks so much everyone!!
Adam Schiff
01:11:46
we need to move genre/form headings to 655 in older records
Heidi Margold
01:11:52
So so exciting! Thank you
JK Milligan
