We first started thinking about adding our LibGuides to the Fontbonne catalog in 2015 and finally went live with the records this past February. This session will chronicle the entire process, including our discussions about the decision to add the records, a brief introduction of the Open Archives Initiative and its protocol for metadata harvesting, using the LibGuides interface, and working with MOBIUS support to create the new records. We’ll look at examples from LibGuides, Sierra, and our catalog and discovery layer and share the challenges and lessons we encountered along the way.
No experience required! The examples and instructions provided in this session will help you do more with your metadata. We’ll show you what you need to know, what you can expect, and help you streamline the support process to avoid the mistakes we made. Attendees should leave the session with enough knowledge and confidence to use their existing tools to better promote content across a variety of vendor platforms.
