Or better yet, how do you start a program from scratch? In this book Purcell, a well-respected expert in both archives and digital libraries, combines theory and best practices with practical application, showing how to approach digital projects as an ongoing effort. He not only guides librarians and archivists in transitioning from project-level initiatives to a sustainable program but also provides clear step-by-step instructions for building a digital library program from the bottom up, even for organizations with limited staff.

But since the origins of MARC nearly 50 years ago, the value of machine-readable library records has only grown. Today linked data is essential for sharing library collections on the open web, especially the digital cultural heritage in the collections of libraries, archives, and museums. In this book, the Association of Library Collections and Technical Services (ALCTS) gathers a stellar list of contributors to help readers understand linked data concepts by examining practice and projects based in familiar concepts like authority control. Topped by an insider’s perspective on OCLC’s experiments with Schema.org and the Library of Congress’s BIBFRAME project, the book addresses such topics as:\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cul\u003e\n\u003cli\u003ea simplified description of linked data, summing up its promises and challenges;\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003econtrolled vocabularies for the web;\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003ebroadening use of library-curated vocabularies;\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003ehow the complexity of AV models reveals the limitations of retrospective conversion;\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003eBIBFRAME’s triplestore data model;\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003eways libraries are helping science researchers share their data, with descriptions of projects underway at major institutions;\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003ebalancing the nuance within an element set with the sameness needed for sharing; and\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003ethe influence of projects such as Europeana and Digital Public Library of America.\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003c\/ul\u003e\nThis survey of the cultural heritage landscape will be a key resource for catalogers and those in the metadata community.\u003cbr\u003e\u003cb\u003eThe Association for Library Collections \u0026amp; Technical Services (ALCTS)\u003c\/b\u003e has been a division of the American Library Association since 1957, when the Resources and Technical Services Division (RTSD) was formed from the merger of several ALA units with common interests. In 1989, the membership of RTSD voted to change the name of the division to ALCTS. Its mission is to shape and respond nimbly to all matters related to the selection, identification, acquisition, organization, management, retrieval, and preservation of recorded knowledge through education, publication, and collaboration."}
