Pull it Together! Reusing Your Own Metadata and Augmenting Collections with OpenRefine

Presentation

Abstract

When describing unique or local materials, librarians and archivists often create high-quality metadata which then gets stored in collection-specific silos. The systems we use often make reuse difficult, even when the metadata might apply to other materials. I will be talking about a project conducted at the NASA Goddard Library to extract local authorities from one collection of objects in a Fedora repository, then create a localized authority reconciliation service, and finally apply the authority to a second collection. The presentation will not only address the method of reconciling authorities but also the difficulties in extract and ingest.

Presented at the Ohio Valley Group of Technical Services Librarians 2016 Conference in Louisville, KY.
