No Columbo? I'm out

All the Chrises? I'm back in
Betsy Ferwerda

Laura, LOL.
Joshua Hutchinson

Marina Morgan

@laura thank you for the chuckle

Interesting to see call number ranges supplied rather than specific, individual ones attempted. Classification/call number assignment takes time and skill, and has an outsize presence in leaner library workflows.
Trina Pundurs
22:22
What is your ILS/LMS?
Sai Deng
22:23
What system are you using? Is there open instruction on how to add those Wikidata entries?
Elizabeth Plantz
22:24
Doe it bother users when some authors have extra info and others don't?
Steven Folsom
23:59
Mike, the call number ranges in the subject page are coming from the subject authority. The 053 in MARC or madsrdf:classification in the linked data… https://id.loc.gov/authorities/subjects/sh85116039.html
Lynn Whittenberger
24:59
Why are you preferring the DBpedia description element over the Wikidata/Wikipedia description element?
Steven Folsom
26:10
Elizabeth, we’ll discuss some of the feedback we’ve received during usability testing. It would be great to discuss this during Q/A.
Mike Williams
26:39
Thanks, Steven! I appreciate the insight. I am strongly in favor of reducing classification item by item and using solutions like the one you've enacted.

Are you imagining that this effort could work well in a mobile library catalog search? Curious - have you asked your user reps about their mobile use of these tests. Thank you
Jesse Lambertson
46:49
Yeah, the more relationships defined by URI the better :)
Huda Khan
46:51
@Jesse, we have not specifically asked the user reps about mobile library catalog search but the implementation team does consider responsive design in general. I'll note that question for later though :)
Jesse Lambertson

Thank you Huda

influenced by: see WorldCat Identities for example http://www.worldcat.org/identities/lccn-n79-77221/

Info on the WorldCat Identities API https://www.oclc.org/developer/api/oclc-apis/worldcat-identities.en.html

Also 'citizenship' is a modern concept Will it be applicable to historical figures like Montezuma?
Elsa Varela
57:44
Thank you for mentioning that the cataloger's focus could be pulled in different directions - maintaining accurate data in Wikidata vs. the local catalog. Could lead to duplicate work.
Jim Hahn
01:00:12
Yeah, haven’t seen downloads, yet, but I think soon…APIs that seem to access this include: https://id.loc.gov/resources/works/suggest2?=historyhttps://id.loc.gov/resources/hubs/suggest2?=history
Lisa McColl
01:00:22
Is there a page for the LC Hubs or some place to look? I'm not finding anything right now. Thanks
Jim Hahn
01:00:45
https://id.loc.gov/search/?q=history
Steven Folsom
01:00:50
Elsa, great point. One thing I didn’t address with the labor dimension… We have a desire to rely on data that we traditionally do not capture or have the capacity ourselves to capture, so we’re being a little opportunistic using “external” sources.
Jim Hahn
01:00:50
You’ll see them in the facet
Lisa McColl
01:01:08
Thank you Jim!
Jesse Lambertson
01:01:37
This is so cool!
David Norris
01:02:03
Lots of exciting possibilities here!
Jesse Lambertson
01:04:13
Yeah, the MARC is a conflated format, la la la
Elsa Varela
01:04:33
Thanks Steven - this is definately going to take a new approach to the work. Opportunistic is good!
Jim Hahn
01:04:36
🙂
Huda Khan
01:05:26
I've used this for the sampling https://id.loc.gov/search/?q=cs:http://id.loc.gov/resources/hubs
Huda Khan
01:05:44
adding format=json provides Atom view (which is what I used)
Jim Hahn
01:07:18
One recipe I was think of is open refine + suggest api that would slowly get you the identifiers?
Lana Soglasnova
01:07:33
Thank you
Jesse Lambertson
01:08:03
Yeah metadata work as adaptation to context 🙂
Bela Gupta
01:10:11
Great session and presentations, Jim!
Huda Khan
01:10:56
Thanks all! I'll follow up with you about that open refine suggestion Jim : )
