*A cataloging and metadata handbook from ALCTS for coding with XML*

Even experienced catalogers and copy catalogers who know their way around
the tags and strings of a MARC record need guidance when creating metadata
for sharing bibliographic records or digital collections on the web.
Likewise, coders or new librarians coming from iSchool or software
backgrounds need examples of how to use XLML or XSLT scripting with library
records. That’s where “Coding with XML for Efficiencies in Cataloging and
Metadata: Practical Applications of XSD, XSLT, and XQuery
<https://www.alastore.ala.org/content/coding-xml-efficiencies-cataloging-and-metadata-practical-applications-xsd-xslt-and-xquery>,”
published by ALA Editions, comes in. Librarians working in their code
editors will want this resource, with its 58 sample coding examples, at
their side. Backed by the authority of the Association for Library
Collections & Technical Services (ALCTS) and editors Timothy W. Cole,
Myung-Ja (MJ) K. Han, and Christine Schwartz, it covers:

·        essential background information, with a quick review of XML
basics;

·        transforming XML metadata in HTML;

·        schema languages and workflows for XML validation;

·        an introduction to XPath and XSLT;

·        cataloging workflows using XSLT;

·        the basics of XQuery, including use cases and XQuery expressions
and functions; and

·        working with strings and sequences, including regular expressions.



Cole is mathematics librarian and coordinator for library applications in
the iSchool’s Center for Informatics Research in Science and Scholarship at
the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. He is the coauthor of “XML
for Catalogers and Metadata Librarians” and “Using the Open Archives
Initiative Protocol for Metadata Harvesting” and has published widely on
metadata, linked open data, and the use of XML in libraries. A past
co-chair of the W3C Web Annotation Working Group, he was awarded the 2017
LITA/OCLC Kilgour Award. Han is a metadata librarian and associate
professor of library administration at the University of Illinois at
Urbana-Champaign. She has published papers *in Library Trends*, *Library
Resources and Technical Services*, and the *Journal of Library Metadata*.
Schwartz is metadata librarian and XML database administrator at the
Princeton Theological Seminary. She has researched and written about
cataloging trends and issues on her blog, Cataloging Futures, and
contributed an essay to the book “Conversations with Catalogers in the 21st
Century.” She served on the Code4Lib Journal Editorial Committee in
2008–2009.
