“New MARC”


LC Working Group of the Future of Bibliographic
Control
Format
◦ Accommodate and distinguish expert-, automated- and
self-generated metadata, including annotations

Recommendation
◦ “Work with the library and other interested communities
to specify and implement a carrier for bibliographic
information that is capable of representing the full range
of data of interest to libraries, and of facilitating the
exchange of such data both within the library community
and with related communities.”


Full capabilities of RDA would be more useful
to the library community if the limitations of
MARC were lifted
New Bibliographic Framework will
◦ Broaden participation in the network of cataloging
resources
◦ Enable librarians to better link their patrons to
resources of all kinds
◦ Better contain costs

LC will continue to support MARC during the
transition and for years to come

In use for over 40 years and has built up
redundancies
◦ Longevity complicates simplification
◦ Tags can’t be reused because older records still
exist


If data were reorganized, old data would be
incompatible with new data
Limitations exist because of choices made in
the initial development of the format

eXtensible Markup Language (XML)
◦
◦
◦
◦
◦
Flexible
Almost unlimited tagging capability
Very mature tools
Continues to be developed at a rapid rate
Has auxiliary standards for
 eXtensible Stylesheet Language Transformations (XSLT)
 XML Query (Xquery)
◦ Led to the development of MARCXML

Metadata Object Description Schema (MODS) and
Metadata Authority Description Schema (MADS)
◦ XML schema compatible with MARC bibliographic and
authority data
◦ Word-based tagging


LC is integrating RDA into MARC 21
LC Vocabularies are available as linked data
◦ Authorities, MARC codes

Increased interest in and experimentation with
Resource Description Framework (RDF)-based
models

Broad accommodation of content rules and
data models
◦ Agnostic to cataloging rules
◦ Accommodate RDA, AACR2, DACS, VRA, Core, CCO

Provision for data that accompanies or
supports bibliographic description
◦ Holdings, authority, classification, preservation,
technical, rights, archival metadata

Accommodation of textual data, linked data
with URIs instead of text, and both

Consideration of the relationships between and
recommendations for communications format
tagging, record input conventions, and system
storage manipulation
◦ Future framework likely to be seen less by catalogers
◦ Internal storage displays and input screens are unlikely
to have the close relationship to a communications
format


Consideration of the needs of all sizes and types
of libraries
Continuation of maintenance of MARC until no
longer necessary


Compatibility with MARC-based records
Provision of transformation from MARC 21 to
a new bibliographic environment

Data model focused on
◦ the Web environment
◦ Linked Data principles and mechanisms
◦ Resource Description Framework (RDF)




W3C (World Wide Web Consortium)
recommended method for conceptual description
or modeling of information
Data can be “serialized” or “written out” in several
different syntax formats, one of which is XML
(eXtensible Markup Language)
Data may be used in relational databases
Triplestores (databases designed for storing and
querying RDF data) are readily available and
promise to provide the library community with
more options on how to store and retrieve its
data



Collaborate with principal MARC partner
institutions
Ask forums such as MARC advisory bodies to
review and provide input
Seek advice from networks like OCLC for
prototyping and developing sample
implementations


LC will develop a two-year grant application
LC will organize consultative groups to
support development and prototyping
activities

How headings are controlled
in Connexion Client and
Connexion Browser


Control Headings functionality allows users to
link headings in bib records to authority
records
OCLC has developed a stand-alone batch
service that will evaluate all bib records and
control more headings

Criteria for record selection

 655, 2nd indicator 7, $2 lcgft
◦ A partially-controlled or fully controlled heading

Attempt to control unqualified names
(personal names that do not have a $b, $c,
$d, and/or $q)
◦ Smith, John [unqualified name]

Control a heading to an undifferentiated
authority record
◦ Smith, John [undifferentiated name]

Cause automated tag flips of any kind




Automatically expand dates for personal
name headings
Partially control series fields and
automatically append $v
Control linked non-Latin script headings for
candidate personal name headings
Apply appropriate punctuation changes



Attempt to control partially-controlled
headings
Uncontrol 1xx, 7xx, 8xx fields if 040 $b is
not eng
Delete a geographic subdivision from a
subject heading if the heading can be
completely controlled and no element of the
heading can be subdivided geographically




Control non-qualified personal names
Control headings that have no exact match or
that match only partially
Control headings that are mis-tagged
Control headings that contain typographical
errors

LCGFT

In 2007, LC began to develop genre form
terms for
◦
◦
◦
◦
◦
◦
◦


Movies
Sound recordings
Maps
Law
Literature
Music
Religion
At first, terms were incorporated into LCSH
In 2010, LC announced plans to separate the
list into a Genre/Form Thesaurus

In Authority Records:
◦ 008, position 11: z (Other)
◦ 040, $f: lcgft
◦ 010, new prefix gf will replace sh

In Bibliographic Records:
◦ 655 -7 $a [Term] $2 lcgft

LC will develop a separate manual for
genre/form terms in 2012


esaurus.html
Cancellation of terms for
moving images


Approximately 90 terms to be cancelled
Fictitious character headings will be created
instead
◦ Cisco Kid films – Cisco Kid (Fictitious character)
◦ Affects 13 headings

Franchise-based terms will rely on titles to
provide access
◦ Planet of the Apes films
◦ Individual titles include Planet of the Apes, Beneath
the Planet of the Apes, Escape from the Planet of
the Apes, etc.


LCGFT should not repeat information found
elsewhere in the bib record
LCSH can still be used
◦ Star Wars films – History and criticism can be used
as a 650 for works about the Star Wars films


Cancelled terms will be added as “former
heading” UF
Scope note will be added to each of the
corresponding LCSH headings:
◦ “This heading is not used for individual [films or
television programs], which are entered under
headings appropriate to the content, genre, and/or
form of the film.”

The 13 fictitious character subject headings
were scheduled to be added in late February
2012


Action, Replace
◦ Can lock record while you’re making changes so that no
one else can change it (Action, Lock)
◦ When in doubt, don’t change the record
◦ Never remove correct and accurate information
from a master record (e.g., call numbers or subject
headings) just because it isn’t useful to you
◦ Never change the basic nature of a the record into
something different
◦ Don’t include local data or local practices in the
master bib record – replace it first and then add
local info
◦ Be careful when changing bib records with a
different Language of Cataloging (040 subfield ‡b)
◦ Don’t change elements that are only a matter of
cataloger's judgment

Library of Congress will move to RDA effective
March 31, 2013
National Agricultural Library, National Library of
Medicine, British Library, Library & Archives
Canada, and National Library of Australia have
agreed to move to RDA in the first quarter of
2013
Deutsche Nationalbibliothek (DNB) will move to
RDA in mid-2013
RDA test records exist with “rda” in $e of the 040
field
ILS vendors updating their systems to
accommodate RDA




Formerly known as Rule Interpretations
The rules are theoretical
The interpretations are the rules in practice
Many rules will change once the
interpretations are in place



RDA is a bridge from AACR2 to ??
RDA can’t be too radical a departure because
both AACR2 and RDA have to be
accommodated in the same catalog
After RDA is in place, more changes will be
possible


“On the web” vs. “Of the web” (Karen Coyle)
RDA can be stored as a MARC record, but it
doesn’t have to be
◦ Future scenario: FRBR/FRAD grouped by entity

Prepares libraries for Web 3.0
◦ Semantic web
◦ Machines understand the meaning of information

RDA sets the stage and gives programmers
options (analogy of train switching tracks)

Data elements more precisely defined
◦ Breaking down subfield data more specifically, e.g.,
300 $b

Collocation – group together similar results

Lessen the Anglo-American bias
◦ Provide as much detail for other sacred scriptures

◦ RDA is more adaptable to other calendars and
numbering schemes

Improve compatibility with other metadata
communities
◦ Archivists, publishers, digital repositories

Eliminate confusion
◦ Data had to fit on a 3x5 catalog card
 Abbreviations
 Transcribe exactly what’s on the item
 Don’t omit contributors just because there are 3 or
more
◦ Discontinue Latin abbreviations and replace them
with explanatory phrases (for example “and others”
instead of et al.)


It’s MARC not RDA that most greatly impacts
our catalogs
RDA affects:
◦ What information is included
◦ How the information is entered

MARC affects:
◦ The structure of the database
◦ How the data can be manipulated

Catalogers not required to upgrade existing
records to RDA
Catalogers may re-catalog items according to
RDA with item in hand, changing Desc: to c or
I and adding 040 $e rda




Catalogers may update individual fields in preRDA records to RDA and leave Desc: and 040 as
is
Catalogers should adhere to established
authority headings regardless of whether those
headings are coded RDA or AACR2
OCLC may make widespread changes to existing
records as part of quality control efforts
Once a record has been changed to RDA, no
cataloger should attempt to change it back to
AACR2 in the master record
