The explosion of online resources has brought with it a host of new metadata schemes and cataloging projects. One of OCLC's most important projects is discussed in CORC: New Tools and Possibilities for Cooperative Electronic Resource Description. This fascinating volume on the pioneering collaborative computer system will help you enhance the value of library services and improve the productivity of librarians and library users. CORC offers a blend of theoretical and practical approaches to broad-based and specialized cataloging problems to help you take advantage of the benefits of the new cooperative cataloging of digital resources. The fourteen chapters in this book tell stories of new ideas, discoveries, and insights gained by being part of the CORC project. The authors represent the perspectives not only of CORC founders, researchers, developers, and observers, but also of library practitioners and managers who are applying CORC to their daily operations. The discussions of the creation and use of CORC include: * a big-picture view of CORC from the founder * CORC's relation to the program for cooperative cataloging * faceted access to LCSH * the WordSmith project to obtain subject terminology directly from web documents * use of online DDC to assist in classification and subject heading assignment * OCLC's Dublin Core--MARC crosswalk * librarians'experiences with the implementations of CORC within cataloging and cross-functional teams * using CORC and Dublin Core to catalog special categories of material: serials, art, and mapsCORC: New Tools and Possibilities for Cooperative Electronic Resource Description examines the nuts-and-bolts practical matters of making a cataloging system work in the Internet environment, where information objects are electronic, transient, and numerous. This valuable book will also help to define the future of librarianship and information access in this exciting time when the World Wide Web is transforming education and communication practices.
