The ALCTS CaMMS Cataloging Norms Interest Group is pleased to announce its 
program at the ALA Midwinter Conference to be held in Atlanta, GWCC, Room A312, 
10:30 AM - 11:30 AM, Saturday, January 21st, 2017.
This year's theme is "Best Practices for Digital Repositories," featuring six 
speakers who will bring two regular talks and four short talks.  Our goal is to 
present more programs with a great deal of relevant information, and encourage 
follow-up with presenters as needed.
Regular Talks (10 minutes each):

*         Minnesota Digital Library's Geospatial Metadata Work (Greta 
Bahnemann, University of Minnesota Libraries)

An overview of the geospatial metadata enhancement project that was recently 
completed for the Minnesota Digital Library collections. Greta Bahnemann, MDL's 
Metadata Librarian, will discuss the foundation of this metadata work, 
including her participation in the Mountain West Digital Library's Geospatial 
Discovery Task Force and the set of best practices that were produced.  The 
benefits associated with this work will be summarized, including the 
anticipated uses of geospatial metadata as well as being in better compliance 
with new national best practices as adopted by the Digital Public Library of 

*         A Lightweight Structured Data Implementation Using JSON-LD and 
Schema.org for Digital Repository (Lucas Mak, Lisa Lorenzo, Nicole Smeltekop, 
Michigan State University Libraries)

The Islandora digital repository has been serving as a testbed for new services 
and tools for the Digital Information Division at Michigan State University 
Libraries.  One of those recent endeavors is the incorporation of structured 
data on item display page using JSON-LD and schema.org vocabularies to enhance 
discoverability by search engines.  This presentation will give a brief project 
overview, discuss the MODS and schema.org mapping process and its 
implementation in Islandora, and talk about moving into exposing URI (the real 
linked data) through the same implementation.
Short Talks (7-8 minutes each):

*         Metadata Migration Managed: Fixing Metadata That Was Up to No Good 
(Jeremy Myntti and Anna Neatrour, University of Utah)

The University of Utah's Marriott Library has been working on migrating all 
digital collections out of CONTENTdm to a system incorporating open source 
software using Apache Solr (indexer), NGINX (webserver), and phalcon (PHP 
framework).  This presentation will provide an overview of the metadata cleanup 
and standardization tasks that have been completed during the migration along 
with future plans for post-migration remediation to ensure that our metadata is 
consistent with best practices.

*         XML MARCs the Spot: Mapping Multiple Metadata Standards for 
Consolidated Use in An Institutional Repository (Jennifer Fagan-Fry and Sarah 
Davis, LAC Group at NOAA Affiliate)

This presentation will address the challenges of building the National Oceanic 
and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) Institutional repository with a special 
focus on the solutions to the key problems of: combining disparate metadata 
schemas (MARC21 and EndNote) into one standardized version (MODS), 
accommodating specific Fedora requirements without major edits to the existing 
catalog metadata; and collaborating with NOAA's repository partner, the Centers 
for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to create a custom export and 
conversion file for NOAA's standardized (MARC XML and Excel) metadata.

*         Mapping a Digital Repository to Linked Data (Maura Valentino, Oregon 
State University)

In 2014, Oregon State University Libraries and Press (OSULP) made the decision 
to move its institutional repository from DSpace to a linked data instance of 
Sufia. This involved mapping each field currently used in DSpace to a linked 
data field within an existing namespace, however some DSpace fields cannot find 
a match. OSULP curates a namespace, OpaqueNamespace, for necessary fields that 
currently don't have a namespace. This presentation will focus on how the 
linked data fields were chosen, when OpaqueNamespace was chosen and how using 
linked data will allow for more accurate use of the repository and its 

*         Getting Started with DOIs in the Institutional Repository (Jeffrey M. 
Mortimore, Georgia Southern University; Ashley D. Lowery, East Tennessee State 

Assigning DOIs in the institutional repository builds legitimacy and extends 
the reach of your IR content. This session will cover the basics of CrossRef 
membership and DOI management for institutional repositories, with special 
emphasis on Digital Commons. Topics will include membership costs and 
responsibilities, DOI structure and syntax, recommended workflows for manual 
and automated deposits, and considerations for Memoranda of Understanding.
We look forward to seeing many of you there!
