Data Movement and Management Forum: Pre-ACRL Program in Seattle
NISO will be holding an educational forum on Data Movement and Management on March 11, 2009 in Seattle as a pre-ACRL conference program.
Modern libraries consist of a variety of complicated data systems, many containing a portion of the data needed to address any specific question. Often data needs to be extracted from one system and moved to or compared with information in another. Frequently, these systems don't communicate well. This in-person conference will explore a number of ongoing data transfer and transformation consensus projects. Whether it is collections or holdings information distributed via ONIX, pricing data via CORE, or usage data via SUSHI, the community is working on strategies and structures to easily transfer data from one system to another. Each of these initiatives will contribute to saving librarians time and eventually money in managing their operations.
Confirmed speakers and topics for the program include:
-- Opening Keynote: The Landscape of data Movement and Management in Libraries by Tim Jewell (Director, Information Resources and Scholarly Communication, University of Washington Libraries)
-- The Extensible Catalog – Reusing Library Metadata by Jennifer Bowen (Director of Metadata Management, River Campus Libraries)
-- CORE: Cost of Reuse Exchange– Combining Cost and Use Data in Libraries by Jeff Aipperspach (Senior Product Manager, Serials Solutions)

-- The OAI-ORE Project – What It Is and How People Can Apply It by Michael L. Nelson (Dept of Computer Science, Old Dominion University)
The forum will be held at the South Campus Center at the University of Washington in Seattle.
