Abstract

eXtensible Catalog (XC) open source software gives libraries a risk-free way to prepare for future library systems and standards. Using XC, libraries can automate metadata harvesting from Voyager or Aleph, prepare it for use in current discovery tools, and experiment with transforming it in ways that will make it useful in future systems. XC software cleans up legacy metadata and transforms it into FRBRized linked data, setting the stage for a full implementation of RDA. Gaining expertise in these areas will enable libraries to be better-informed partners with library vendors in designing online products for libraries.
