The keywords metadata in separate fields

Postby Ajaks » Mon Jun 27, 2011 11:07 am

Dear,

I have registered the journal in the WorldCat Database. The items are visible but some elements are interpreted quite strange. E.g. several keywords are merged into one keyword
Code: Select all
http://oaister.worldcat.org/title/prba-analizy-zjawiska-konwergencji-na-przykadzie-dziaa-grupy-iti/oclc/2390732616910&referer=brief_results
It leads to wrong further searching. Perhaps it is the conversion problem of WorldCat database but I think in the next release of OJS it would be nice to see the separate fields for each keyword.

Kind regards,
Adam

Hi Adam,

I'm having a little trouble understanding where the problem is on the Worldcat site -- is it that the items in the Subjects box on the right should all be their own individual hyperlinked search terms (ie. separated by semi-colon)? Worldcat could presumably handle that differently, but there may be something we could do on our end as well. It would be helpful if you could provide a link to a better-behaving Worldcat entry as a comparison. Happy to take a closer look at that point.

Cheers,
James

Hi James,

thank you for your reply. Please look at this example http://oaister.worldcat.org/title/zagadnienia-informacji-naukowej-1996-nr-1/oclc/2390705841876&referer=brief_results where the subject terms are enumerated separately and each of them is hyperlinked.
In my case the subject term consists of two or more subject terms.

Regards,
Adam

Hi Adam,

I just followed up with one of our developers; he suggested that OAIster/Worldcat is getting their data via OAI using Dublin Core, which corresponds closely to how we're storing things internally. Unfortunately, Dublin Core doesn't really have much to say about how we store that keyword information -- so it's left to the receiving institution to make some decisions about how the keywords are managed. Basically, your original assumption is correct -- this is something that can/should be resolved at Worldcat.

Cheers,
James

Hi Adam,

If you do figure out how Worldcat is treating subject keywords, let us know -- if they've followed some sort of standard practice that we're not aware of, we may be able to incorporate it.
