welcome

Mangia, mangia!Welcome Art Discovery Group Catalogue updateOCLC RLP UpdateWeb Archiving Metadata Working Group Round Robin Round-up Nawlins style

Todays agenda

I prepared individual snapshots of the data for each institution, showing their activity versus the group averages. Mostly this helped us find several mistakes some of them mine, some of them theirs that explained most of the differences in the data reported to ARL and to me. Then we spent the rest of each hour talking about these topics right here.

Florence conference last fallOpportunity to assess progress since 201321

Post-ADGC conference survey results: feedback

an extraordinarily important project in which all relevant art libraries must be represented It has succeeded in being a focal point for bringing together art librarians together to discuss our profession and the future of art bibliography in general. a great and outstanding project but still not completely mature in its development. It feels like something that only the 'big boys', ie. large academic, research and/or national museums can contribute to because of the lack of resources in many smaller, European libraries.

Affirmed the projects potentialAlso that it is very much a WORK IN PROGRESS22

Post-ADGC conference survey results: needs improvement

too much noise in the result lists.

more important databases should be added (BHA, RILA, ASCO, etc.)

the website should be updated more frequently.

it should be more advertised

have the interface and webpages available in other languages

...need more non-european and non-american libraries, whose holdings would clearly enrich the catalogue. This might help to raise the attraction of the catalogue, by not only acquiring new data but also new users.

OCLC EMEA is committed to the projectCan see that in Europe LOADING the libraries in OCLC is still unusual and there are some resource concernsStill, many in the US and abroad are Interested in innnovative developments, e.g., a CatVIS project for mining the ADGC dataset With visual display of results for non-traditional queries, e.g., the geographic distribution of literature in a particular field of art historyFeedback from YOU and YOUR PATRONS is what the project most needs

Next steps and future plans

Develop and conduct usability study and user survey to share with communityAdd non-European and non-American art librariesAdd more unique content, such as BHA, ASCO, ArkyvesWork with OCLC EMEA on improvements to interface

The Web is the native environment of information seekers. OCLC Research recognizes that to be integrated into the Web, traditional library data must be transformed in various ways. We are analyzing the data in WorldCat and other sources to derive new meaning, insights, and services for use by libraries and others on the Web.

WebJunction provides free content, programs and resources to build the knowledge, skills and confidence library staff need to power vibrant, relevant libraries.

WebJunctions course catalog now includes 43 self-paced courses on library topics and over 200 webinar recordings, all available for free and ready when you are.

What are the results we expect from this match between Wikipedians and Librarians?

Wikipedians will better understand how their local public library can enrich their work. Libraries and their resources will be more visible on Wikipedia. And librarians will be better equipped to help information seekers make the best use of Wikipedia.

New human-to-human connections and understanding between the Wikipedia and library communities will be forged, so that they can be advocates for how the two entities protect free and open access to knowledge.

We also hope to see libraries offer new programs that guide community members to become Wikipedia editors in their own right and thus inject new and more diverse perspectives into Wikipedia.

Under the guidance of librarians who understand how to create high-quality articles and new connections to the Wikipedian co
