The OCLC Research Library Partnership
Archives and Special Collections Linked Data Review Group
By understanding the descriptive needs of the rare and unique collections communities, this group will guide future linked data approaches and services from OCLC.
Working in collaboration with OCLC Research Library Partnership representatives from the rare book, archives, and special collections communities, OCLC will facilitate a series of virtual discussions to gather information that needs to be reflected in linked data approaches.
Because of the specific goals and needs of bibliographic and archival description, initial meetings will focus on gathering details about these distinct descriptive practices. All participants will actively contribute to the questions and discussion.
- Gather descriptive needs and wants (what works well/doesn’t work well in current record-based processes)
- Develop solutions using participant examples
- Discuss the outcomes
- Share results in one or more OCLC RLP Works in Progress Webinars
