ASERL Friends:

A quick reminder that we will offer this webinar next week.  An updated 
registration list is below.

SESSION DESCRIPTION:  The University of Florida’s Smathers Libraries recently 
undertook several large-scale initiatives that surfaced the need for 
significantly expanded and enhanced metadata for UF's digital collections, both 
retrospective and prospective. This requires implementing new tools and 
changing roles and responsibilities for cataloging/metadata staff, including 
the application of automated processes, improved and consistent metadata 
practices, and the development of new taxonomies. UF recently concluded a pilot 
project in partnership with Access Innovations, Inc. to automate the indexing 
and metadata generation for the Portal of Florida History. Using 25,000 
full-text theses and dissertations and the JSTOR thesaurus instead of the 
Library of Congress subject headings, this process automatically indexes the 
collection and creates a new search portal. Results of the pilot show 
significantly increased retrievability, greater depth of accessibility via 
detailed subject metadata, and explores application to the entire digital 
collection. Presenters will discuss the processes used, impacts on staff, and 
basic information about business models.
