The Community Zone is an essential component of Alma, containing linking and bibliographic information for thousands of electronic resources, and authority records for a number of thesauri, enabling Alma's automated authority control processes. This presentation will cover several Community Zone-related topics, including (but not limited to):
- What's in the Alma Community Zone
- Using the Community Zone for authority control.
- Quality in and enhancement of Community Zone bibliographic records for e-resources
- How the Community Zone is maintained and updated
- The work of the Alma Community Zone Management Group
The focus will be on practical information and lessons learned at the University of Minnesota after 4+ years live on Alma.
