Not metadata, but still pretty fun - http://meettheipsums.com - some
curated ipsums.

I was telling Hardy earlier today we needed a metadata ipsum... it would
pull random words from the full-text of the AACR2.

Subject: Mapping LCSH to DDC

Hi CODE4LIB,

we would like to add DDC classes to a bunch of MARC records, which contains only LoC Subject Headings.
Does anybody know, if a mapping between LCSH and DDC is anywhere existent (and available)?

I understood, that WebDewey http://www.oclc.org/dewey/versions/webdewey.en.html  might provide such a service, but

·         we are no OCLC customers or subscribers to WebDewey

·         even if we were, I'm not sure, if the service matches our needs

I'm thinking of a tool, where I can upload my list of subject headings and get back a list, where the matching Dewey classes have been added (but a 'simple' csv file with LCSH terms and DDC classes would be helpful as well- I am fully aware, that neither LCSH nor DDC are simple at all...) . Naïve idea...?

Thanks for any clues,
Irina

Subject: Metadata generator (was: Lorem Ipsum metadata? Is there such a thing?)

I really like Ben's idea of programmatically reading the XML schema and
generating the XML structure based on that rather than hard-coding each
metadata schema. I've hit a snag. I'm using the MODS 3.5 schema as a
starting point.

http://www.loc.gov/standards/mods/v3/mods-3-5.xsd

By convention, it seems that a properly formed MODS file starts with a
<modsCollection> element that wraps the whole file and then an individual
<mods> element for each record. However, when you look at the schema file,
there doesn't seem to be anything that specifies that structure. Every
element, including the individual metadata fields and subfields, are
globally defined  top-level elements. As a result, I have no idea how I
could tell my program which element to use as my document root without
hard-coding that information for each schema. I couldn't even do something
as simple as saying that the first defined element should be the document
root because, in the case of MODS, the <mods> tag is defined before
<modsCollection>, whereas <modsCollection> is actually the root element.

Any suggestions?

Cool!
My first thought on this topic was: give the program an XML schema, and
generate possible documents with the correct datatypes etc. (Something like
that must exist somewhere, right?) Does it happen to work anything like
that, or is it hardcoded to generate these specific elements?

Subject: Re: problem in old etd xml files

Right, hence my earlier suggestion of just replacing the entities ;). It's
not exactly the approach you describe, as your would would deal with common
cases that didn't get properly set up in the dtd, but it also would be a
bit more difficult to map for weird custom entities.

My email was a bit rambling, but the magic sauce I recommended was
something like

xmllint --loaddtd --noent --dropdtd FRONT.XML > FRONT_nodtdent.xml

(In reality you'd want to automate that a little more, xmllint uses the
libxml libraries if I remember correctly, so there are likely bindings that
do the same thing.)

What that seems to do is loads the dtd (which xmllint no longer does unless
it needs to), takes any entity and replaces it with what's in the dtd, and
then just drops the dtd. I didn't look closely, but it doesn't seem to just
transplant it with the numeric code (&#255;), but use the actual unicode
character.

(You still need to fix the several mistakes that have already been observed
and pointed out by folks like Jason, the xml:stylesheet that needs to be
xml-stylesheet, making sure the filename are actually correct for
case-sensitive OSes.)

For my money, the text transform should look only for exact matches (e.g., "&aacute;", "&nbsp;", "&copy;") and replace them with their numeric counterparts.

Subject: LYRASIS Open Source Case Study Call for Proposals

Share your story of implementing an open source system at your library. If selected, you will get paid to develop a case study of your open source system adoption experience and learning.

LYRASIS, in partnership with the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation<https://foss4lib.org/article/2012/nov/second-mellon-grant-for-foss4lib>,[0] is seeking academic and public libraries to share their experiences with open source systems, such as content repositories or institutional repositories, integrated library systems, or public-facing websites. The two selected case studies will be available on FOSS4Lib.org<http://FOSS4Lib.org>. This effort, part of the larger LYRASIS Digital<http://www.lyrasis.org/lyrasisdigital>[1] initiative, is a continuation of LYRASIS working with libraries and other cultural heritage organizations to learn about, evaluate, adopt, and use open source software systems.

More information is available in the formal call-for-proposals document<https://foss4lib.org/sites/default/files/inline/Open%20Source%20Case%20Study%20Call%20for%20Proposals.pdf>.[2] To apply, submit a brief description of the potential case study by email to Peter Murray<mailto:[log in to unmask]> [3] with the name of the proposed primary author as well as names of others at the library who may contribute to creation of the case study. The deadline for submission is Friday, January 11, 2014.

Subject: Announcing Code4Lib2014 expected registration date and estimated registration cost

I am happy to announce that we have had a very successful sponsorship
campaign this year which has a tremendous impact on keeping the
registration cost low.  While the conference committee is still receiving
bids for the A/V contract, we can provide the estimated registration cost
for you to use to submit your travel requests at your institution.  If the
A/V contract amount is different than what we have budgeted, we will adjust
the registration cost appropriately before the start of registration.

    Expected Registration Date opens: January 13, 2013
    Estimated Registration Cost: $165
    Pre-conference Registration Cost, if attending Code4Lib: $10
    Pre-conference Registration Cost, if not attending Code4Lib: $25

The Pre-conference registration is to be used to offset the A/V costs for
that day.

We are very excited about the plans for the conference and hosting everyone
in North Carolina.
Cheers,

Subject: Re: Mapping LCSH to DDC

Not a naive idea at all. If you have the stomach for it, you could extract the Subject Heading / Dewey combinations out of say the LC Catalog MARC data [1] to use as training data for some kind of clustering [2] algorithm. You might even be able to do something simple like keep a count of the Dewey ranges associated with each subject heading.

I’m kind of curious myself, so I could work on getting the subject heading / dewey combinations if you want?

I've often thought that this would be an interesting exercise if someone
would undertake it.

Just a reminder: in theory (IN THEORY) the first subject heading in an
LC record is the one most semantically close to the assigned subject
classification. So perhaps a first pass with the FIRST 6xx might give a
more refined matching. And then it would be interesting to compare that
with the results using all 600-651's.

Subject: Re: Mapping LCSH to DDC

I was going to try to reduce the space a bit by focusing on 650 fields. Each record with a Dewey number will be a tab separated line, that will include each 650 field in order. So something like:

305.42/0973 <tab> Women's rights -- United States -- History -- Sources. <tab> Women -- United States -- History — Sources <tab> Manuscripts, American -- Facsimiles.

I thought it might be a place to start at least … it’s running on an ec2 instance right now :-)

Naïve idea...?

Classification Web offers a correlations feature between Dewey and the 1st LCSH, based on usage in LC's database (as well as correlations between LCC and LCSH, and DDC and LCC). It is of some use in helping the cataloger determine possible classifications or subject headings to use. Unfortunately, I don't believe ClassWeb is easily accessible by automated processes (even for subscribers). Even if it were, I doubt it is possible to automate a process of assigning Dewey based on 1st LCSH. As mentioned, the 1st LCSH and classification are generally supposed to be similar/linked, but that applies more to LCC/LCSH than DDC to LCSH, due to the way Dewey works. For example, ClassWeb correlation between LCSH Disease management (chosen while looking at Health, then Disease, then looking for an example showing a better variety of Deweys than the 1st 2) shows DDCs used by LC (counts of records in parentheses):

Disease management [Topical]
         362.1 (4)
         610.285 (1)
         615.1 (1)
         615.5071 (1)
         616.89142 (1)

####

That said, as Ed mentioned, given a large set of records for training, you should be able to develop something to help local catalogers determine possible Deweys record-by-record.

I hope this helps,

This is my inclination. However, if the algorithm doesn't incorporate
values from the tables used to synthesize Dewey numbers, identifying the
stems of numbers may be tricky. It might be worth calling up someone at a
major Dewey library like UIUC or Northwestern to see if they might be
willing to provide data to add to what you get from LC.

Date:    Tue, 10 Dec 2013 17:30:58 -0800
From:    Ron Peterson <[log in to unmask]>
Subject: Call for Proposals: Code4Lib Journal

Call for Proposals (and apologies for cross-posting):

The Code4Lib Journal (C4LJ) exists to foster community and share information among those interested in the intersection of libraries, technology, and the future.

We are now accepting proposals for publication in our 24th issue. Don't miss out on this opportunity to share your ideas and experiences. To be included in the 24th issue, which is scheduled for publication in mid April 2014, please submit articles, abstracts, or proposals at http://journal.code4lib.org/submit-proposal or to [log in to unmask] by Friday, January 10, 2014.  When submitting, please include the title or subject of the proposal in the subject line of the email message.

C4LJ encourages creativity and flexibility, and the editors welcome submissions across a broad variety of topics that support the mission of the journal.  Possible topics include, but are not limited to:

* Practical applications of library technology (both actual and hypothetical)
* Technology projects (failed, successful, or proposed), including how they were done and challenges faced
* Case studies
* Best practices
* Reviews
* Comparisons of third party software or libraries
* Analyses of library metadata for use with technology
* Project management and communication within the library environment
* Assessment and user studies

C4LJ strives to promote professional communication by minimizing the barriers to publication.  While articles should be of a high quality, they need not follow any formal structure.  Writers should aim for the middle ground between blog posts and articles in traditional refereed journals.  Where appropriate, we encourage authors to submit code samples, algorithms, and pseudo-code.  For more information, visit C4LJ's Article Guidelines or browse articles from the first 23 issues published on our website: http://journal.code4lib.org.

Remember, for consideration for the 24th issue, please send proposals, abstracts, or draft articles to [log in to unmask] no later than Friday, January 10, 2014.

Send in a submission.  Your peers would like to hear what you are doing.

End of CODE4LIB Digest - 9 Dec 2013 to 10 Dec 2013 (#2013-320)
