Subject: [MLA-L] New OCLC Music Toolkit for generating faceted music data
To: "[log in to unmask]" <[log in to unmask]>


(cross-posted; please excuse duplication)


The Music Library Association's Vocabularies Subcommittee is pleased to
announce the availability of a new OCLC tool for automated generation of
faceted terms based on Library of Congress Subject Headings for music and
related coded data in MARC bibliographic records. The *Music Toolkit*,
developed by Gary Strawn (of Authority Toolkit fame), is an OCLC macro that
incorporates a program written by Strawn which analyzes existing
bibliographic data and generates corresponding faceted terms from the *Library
of Congress Medium of Performance Thesaurus* (LCMPT), *Library of Congress
Genre/Form Terms *(LCGFT), and *Library of Congress Demographic Group Terms
(*LCDGT), as well as other faceted metadata such as dates and geographic
place names. The Toolkit output is then evaluated and adjusted as necessary
by the cataloger, who is responsible for correct application of LC faceted
terms and their corresponding MARC fields and, if desired, OCLC WorldCat
master record replacement.


This tool streamlines the retrospective enhancement of bibliographic data
for music resources, further advancing the eventual goal of full-scale
implementation of faceted vocabularies, and the enhanced discovery of music
resources that this data enables. The underlying algorithm, developed by
the MLA Vocabularies Subcommittee, can also be programmed to perform batch
record enhancements on entire bibliographic databases. Thus, the Music
Toolkit, in addition to being a time-saving tool for music catalogers, is a
testing mechanism for Strawn's program and the MLA algorithm itself. All
who work with music bibliographic data are invited to read the content
linked below, install the Music Toolkit, and provide feedback to MLA/VS
accordingly via the Google form listed below. Please be aware that the
MLA algorithm, as well as Strawn's program and Toolkit, are all works in
progress, and MLA/VS and Strawn will continue to collaborate to refine and
improve it.
