  1. Conversion Code Update

    1. No major updates

  2. Collaboration Documents Review Discussion

    1. Emory findings

      1. voted for first option for both shelf mark and holding info

      2. question on accession numbers - is there predicate for that? nothing found so this one might be covered by Hydra Vocab Manager to mint new predicate

      3. notes - fine with note types but interested in collaborating to have similar note types across institutions

      4. frequency and extent - found some things in RDA but can be discussed later

      5. name question - is complex use case only one with affiliation? simple can use affiliation but complex has more options (need to rename tabs since this case isn't either/or but complex is expansion on simple)

    2. Emory can post note types to start discussion (Columbia interested) - will add to Emory mapping review document

    3. Columbia updates

      1. added RDA title mapping

      2. doesn't contain non-sort option but MADS RDF does

      3. MADS RDF for subjects - what was the problem with subjects? trying to avoid minting and see if MADS RDF could cover the cases we show that involve minting URIs

    4. BPL - will send out larger voting document to answer open questions; originInfo spreadsheet - Advanced tab has opaque:origination, should we use bf:ProvisionActivity instead? no issues brought up to not go this route so will change this unless issues are brought up

  3. Holding location and shelf location voting results and discussion

    1. Results:

    2. still not much response from broader community (survey linked on wiki agenda)

    3. shelf location preference is Option 1 (bf:physicalLocation with text string)

    4. holding location preference tied between Options 1 (bf:heldBy) and 4 (relator:own)

      1. relator:own being used by BPL and Emory to specify owner of item vs. holder of item so they prefer bf:heldBy

      2. going with Option 1 for holding location (bf:heldBy)

  4. Hydra Connect 2016 Breakout Session

    1. Hydra Connect 2016: Presentations, panels and breakouts#Wednesday-paralleltracks

      1. schedule available, Wednesday, Oct. 5, 2:10-3:10pm

      4. discuss ways that insitutions on committee will implement

      5. maybe show work comparing EBUCore and MODS mapping for Avalon question

  5. Next MODS element assignment

  6. Next meeting: Monday September 19th at 9:00 AM PST / Noon EST.
