Abstract
It is understood that in the current library ecosystem, catalogers must be willing to adapt to new semantic web environment while keeping in mind the crucial library mission – providing efficient access to information. How could catalogers transform their jobs in order to enable library users to retrieve information more effectively in the age of semantic web? Researchers have argued that catalogers have the fundamental skills to successfully work with and repurpose the metadata originally created for use in traditional library systems by utilizing various programing languages. In the new environment their jobs will require new tools and new systems but the basic skills of organization of information, knowledge of commonly used access points, and an ever growing knowledge of information technology systems will still be the same. This presentation will stress the role of catalogers in bringing the data silos down, merging, augmenting, and creating interoperable data that can be used not just in library specific systems, but in various other systems. Catalogers’ indispensable knowledge of controlled vocabularies, authority aggregators, metadata creation, metadata reuse, taxonomies, and data stores makes it all possible. We will demonstrate how catalogers’ knowledge can be leveraged to design an institutional repository and/or a researchers profiling system, create semantic web compliant data, create ontologies, utilize unique identifiers, and (re)use data from legacy systems.
