Antti Impivaara: content description library systems


Everyone knows how far behind libraries lag considering the advances made in the information technology.Why are we so fixed to aging formats and thesauruses that are so behind what’s happening that it’s ridiculous? Where is FRBR? Where is the patron in our data?

A lot of information used to describe content is there only for heritage-reasons, how do we break up from this and start anew? To answer some of the questions would be for one that we might consider hiring outside help, e.g. from the IT-professionals. We can’t all of us be expected to be technically up to the challenge, but we could be in charge of what we want in the first place.
