    OCLC BISAC Initiatives

    • OCLC researchers and Dewey editors are collaborating on a project to create authority records for BISAC subject headings and add Dewey numbers to the records

    • BISAC subject headings, including usage notes, are coded according to the MARC 21 format for authority data

    • Dewey numbers from DDC 23, the latest edition of Dewey, are applied to the records by the Dewey team

  • DDC 23 Workshop, Universidad Metropolitana, San Juan, Puerto Rico 12

    Dewey Numbers: Mapping guidelines

    • The topic represented by the subject heading either equals/approximates the whole of or is explicitly included in that number

    • If the topic matches more than one Dewey number, multiple numbers may be added

  • DDC 23 Workshop, Universidad Metropolitana, San Juan, Puerto Rico 13

    Examples

    • DDC: 1 083 04 152.47 $2 22 $5 OCoLC-D

    150 __ SELF-HELP $x Anger Management

    • DDC: 2 083 04 372.7 ‡2 22 ‡5 OCoLC-D

    083 04 510.712 ‡2 22 ‡5 OCoLC-D

    150 __ EDUCATION ‡x Teaching Methods & Materials ‡x Mathematics

    • DDC: Many 150 __ BIOGRAPHY & AUTOBIOGRAPHY ‡x Rich & Famous

    Exploiting Relationships between BISAC and Other Resources

    Three use cases 1. Dewey number 2. BISAC heading 3. BISAC code

    Acquire a Dewey number

    • Classify • WebDewey • Bibliographic record

  • DDC 23 Workshop, Universidad Metropolitana, San Juan, Puerto Rico 17

    Acquire BISAC terms based on Dewey number

    Dewey number: 794

    Mapped BISAC terms to 794* COMPUTERS—Programming—Games

    GAMES—Board

    GAMES—Board—Checkers

    Using BISAC code to acquire a heading and a Dewey number

    • BISAC code in your metadata: • CKB007000

    • Looking up literal and mapping: • COOKING—Beverages—Beer —> 641.623

    • Deriving Dewey Summaries as broad subject description:

    Kindred Works (Dewey-driven Discovery of Related Works) • What is it?

    • Content-based recommender service • Leverages DDC, Classify & WorldCat API

    • Consists of a demonstration interface & API • Accepts OCLC number or ISBN as input

    • What do you get? • Returns a list of related resources (title, author, isbns) • Results can be limited to the holdings of a given institution

    • Next Steps • Release as a prototype service • Collect usage data (e.g., rate the match) • Prototype a mobile app • Continue to refine the recommender logic
