Occupation Period-Related Materials: Issues of Digitization, Access and Opportunities for Digital Scholarship

The University of Maryland is the home to the Prange Collection, the most comprehensive archive in the world of Japanese print publications issued during the early years of the Occupation of Japan, 1945-1949. With that in mind, we organized this year’s Committee on Japanese Materials session on the theme of Allied Occupation period-related materials, focusing on issues of digitization, access, and opportunities for digital scholarship. Please see below the details of the session.

Theme: Providing Quality Metadata for Diverse Collections

In recent years, library collections have been diversified by print (both published and manuscripts), electronic resources, digitized collections and born-digital objects at a faster pace than ever before. Providing quality metadata will play a pivotal role in assuring diverse resources findable, shareable and sustainable in the networked environment worldwide. This CTP meeting will explore and examine how to provide and maintain the quality of descriptive metadata/bibliographic data for the better discovery of diverse resources.

Panel discussion
LC BIBFRAME Updates: Pilot 2 for Non-Roman Scripts

Many CEAL colleagues have shared their interests in knowing the impact of LC BIBFRAME (as a replacement for MARC) on CJK resources. We have invited three BIBFRAME testers from LC to provide us the status report. Each of these presenters will provide a different perspective on BIBFRAME, including the perspectives of PCC, MARC standards and catalogers.
