FAST at the British Library
By Caroline Kent (The British Library)
The British Library is constantly evolving its approaches to Metadata Management. With an aim of maintaining quality and improving discoverability of all areas of our collections, Metadata specialists are always looking for innovative ways to improve throughput times, build consistency in approaches to the standards applied across our collections, and provide approaches that are understandable to all our users. This is alongside the need to make library data more Web friendly, specifically with regard to Linked Data, and to incorporate the extensive volume of born-digital data we are now collecting. FAST has been explored by the Metadata & Cataloguing teams as one aspect that can assist in providing streamlined, Linked Data friendly approaches to cataloguing. This presentation will give an update of where the British Library is now, and the progress and outcomes of evaluating and implementing FAST to improve discoverability across our collections.

FAST Headings for ETDs at Brown
Jeanette Norris & Joseph Rhoads (Brown University Library)
This presentation will discuss the evolution of the use of FAST headings for the description of Electronic Theses and Dissertations (ETDs) in the Brown University Repository from the perspectives of a repository developer and a metadata librarian. Brown University Library collaborates with the Brown Graduate School to collect describe, preserve and make available the theses and dissertations for graduates of Brown University.  The ETDs are self-deposited using a web application designed through a collaboration between Cataloging, Repository Services, and the Graduate School. The self-deposit application has evolved since it was first created in 2008, when users' were asked to record any keywords, which were uncontrolled, to 2015, where the self-deposit form automatically performs a lookup to the Assign FAST API, providing an opportunity for authors to use a controlled vocabulary without training. The use of FAST has provided the Brown University Library the ability to integrate ETDs from the Repository seamlessly with theses and dissertations described in the catalog. The team of Repository developers and Metadata librarians, are now assessing the effectiveness of this approach in terms of the voluntary use of FAST, the accuracy of the vocabulary assignment, and the maintenance required to keep labels updated.

Maximizing Discovery of Datasets in the Library Catalog
By Rowena Griem, Tachtorn Meier, & Yukari Sugiyama (Yale University Library)
As digital scholarship evolves in academia, there are the growing importance and increasing acquisition of datasets at libraries. It is essential to ensure that this newer kind of library resource is easily discovered, identified and accessed by users. At the Yale University Library, we reviewed current cataloging practice and needs for dataset discovery and access to establish best practices.
Highlights of our progress include:

  *   Creation of dataset-related LCGFT headings
  *   Documentation for MARC-based cataloging of datasets and workflow
  *   Remediation for existing dataset catalog records
  *   Recommendations to improve discovery user interface
In this presentation, we will discuss challenges of cataloging and managing datasets and demonstrate how the discoverability of datasets is enhanced in our discovery system.


Best,

Lucas Mak & Nerissa Lindsey
