Morphing the authority control, Jackie Shieh (Smithsonian Libraries)   This session is pre-recorded. YouTube link.  
The Smithsonian Libraries (SL) has been investigating whether Mediawiki/Wikibase offers solutions to the challenges of authority control in a linked data environment. This presentation hopes to share SL's efforts in transitioning both data and staff out of the current MARC environment. The SL's Wikibase instance process involved tool evaluations, data selection and preparation, and staff training. The SL's management team embraced this project as another valuable and transformative opportunity for both library collections data and staff. Please direct your questions to the Slack channel for this track.Q & A for this session will be held on the dedicated Slack channel. Please direct your questions to Jackie Shieh (jshieh).

Visioning Entity Management in FOLIO, an open-source library management system, Jason Kovari (Cornell University)
This session is pre-recorded. YouTube link.
FOLIO (https://www.folio.org/) represents a group of libraries, vendors and other stakeholders joining forces to develop an open-source library management system from the ground-up. The project is driven by subject matter expects (i.e., library staff) and has at its development core real-life library needs and aspirations. To set a vision for Entity Management within the FOLIO environment, the Entity Management Working Group (EM-WG) is developing use cases, identifying gaps in the software and defining potential short-and-medium term projects to begin work toward this vision. Entity Management in this context is both the traditional authority management libraries have performed for decades but expands to that which libraries cannot currently do with authority/entity data their ILSs as well as the management of entity-based data models, such as BIBFRAME. This lightning talk will provide a very brief overview of FOLIO's structure to ensure shared foundation knowledge among the audience. The bulk of the presentation will focus on work underway in the EM-WG, such as use cases and other aforementioned outputs. The target audience is composed of both metadata and IT professionals who are concerned about how different projects intend to conduct in-production entity management. While the group has just started work in January 2020, we will be far along with use case development and setting a direction for entity management in FOLIO by the time of the LD4 Conference in July.
Q & A for this session will be held on the dedicated Slack channel. Please direct your questions to Jason Kovari (jak473).
