To promote inter-departmental collaboration, our presentation shows real examples of some of the many services your cataloging department can offer to support your digital projects: Organizing your serials/series and their numbering and sequencing for digitizing and indexing; Repairing or creating MARC bibliographic records representing the print format of your objects, and; Mapping the resulting MARC data to spreadsheets, or other schema as needed (i.e., Dublin Core, MODS etc.); Preparing MARCXML records for HathiTrust; Using XSLT to crosswalk data from one schema to another; Use MARCEdit and/or other tools to efficiently normalize, refine and correct data; Develop strategies, workflows, tools, and documentation enabling staff to quickly create metadata for unregistered collections.
