WorldCat Collection Analysis
Wed, 08/27/2008 - 6:00am - 8:00am
About the Event
This two-day online workshop gives participants a general overview of the WorldCat Collection Analysis service. This service allows institutions to use their WorldCat holdings data to analyze the current status of their collection as well as compare it to collections at other institutions.
Libraries can evaluate their collection by age, language, material format and audience level through a subject matrix based on classification scheme. Comparisons against other institutions (individually or in groups) are based on overlap and uniqueness. Participants will view demonstrations of these functionalities and discuss the ways these data can be used in their library setting. Administration functions of the service will also be reviewed.
This class is from 1-3PM on August 27th amd 28th, 2008 and offers 3 hours of CE.
