Work package 1: Requirements
Continue to collect use cases for interaction with the proposed catalog including both human access/interaction and machine access/interaction.
Analyze these (using the MIG template presented at RDA Plenary 6) for intersections and synergies leading to a definition of the requirements and technical specification for the catalog.
January – July 2016
MSCWG User Stories (Google Docs)
MSCWG Requirements Specification (Google Docs)
Work package 2: Development
Do initial design and development of the Catalog system prototype based on already collected use cases, defined requirements and technical specifications.
Populate prototype system with sample records describing metadata standards and their relationships to organisations, persons, software, datasets, etc.
Refine prototype towards production status, taking into account late-arriving use cases and conversation with other RDA Groups (especially domain groups).
Identify potential adopters of the Catalog system.
July 2016 – January 2017
- MSCWG Draft Data Model (Google Docs)
- MSC Prototype Data Model – this is the version used in the prototype Catalog.
Taxonomy of subjects, disciplines, fields of study
- MSCWG Disciplinary Taxonomy: Draft Proposal 1 (Google Docs)
- MSCWG Disciplinary Taxonomy: Draft Proposal 2 (Google Docs)
- After testing these and other alternatives, the prototype Catalog is using the UNESCO Thesaurus.
- The source code for the prototype Catalog is being developed on GitHub.
- An initial set of records for the Catalog has been migrated from the Metadata Standards Directory for manual editing.
Work package 3: Evaluation
Evaluate the catalog against requirements and technical specifications with and by application domain communities of RDA and other potential adopters.
Validate the Catalog mechanisms for directing users to metadata standard(s) appropriate to their purposes.
January – July 2017
Evaluation of the prototype Catalog against the Requirements Specification is being tracked on the GitHub issue tracker.
Work package 4: Cataloging
Input standards to the catalog “as they are”.
Establish a priority list of standards in consultation with domain communities of RDA and other potential adopters.
Map a priority list of standards to/from metadata packages defined by the Metadata Interest Group, and add these mappings to the Catalog.
May – July 2017
- The starting point is the set of records migrated from the Metadata Standards Directory
Work package 5: Engagement and dissemination
Hold group meetings at RDA Plenaries.
Report on outcomes at Plenary 10.
Produce final report as recommendation output.
January 2016 – July 2017
