More ALA Midwinter Programming

You are cordially invited to attend the following ALA Midwinter program sponsored by the ALA ALCTS Continuing Resources Section's Committee on Holdings Information.

Holdings Information Forum: E-Serials Holdings: Whether, Why, and How?

Time: Saturday Jan 24, 4:00 p.m.-5:30 p.m.

Location: Colorado Convention Center Room 301 (Denver)

Program Description: Unlike the Print world, libraries are no longer the sole suppliers of holdings data for electronic serials. The forum will examine this new reality and address such questions as: Who has the data? Who provides e-content coverage? Who needs and uses the data? How is the data exchanged? In what format? What are the format standards for electronic holdings data? And will a crosswalk between MARC21 and ONIX SOH (currently in version 1.1) benefit the display of serials holdings information in local systems?


Heather Staines (Springer US): The Many Facets of Metadata Exchange Between Publishers and the Research Community, and the Role that A&I Services and DOIs (Digital Object Identifiers) Play in Providing Access to Electronic Content.

Rebecca Gunther (LC) for Linda Miller (LC): ONIX for Serials: How it Can Map to the MARC21 Holdings Format

Peter McCracken (Co-founder and Director of Research, Serials Solutions):

The Function and Role of Chronology and Enumeration Information in ERAMS Tools, Such as A-to-Z Lists and Link Resolver Knowledgebases

Myrtle Myers (OCLC): OCLC eSerials Holdings and Beyond
