Completed: The open annotation gem provides the infrastructure for semantic tags for controlled vocabularies. Some planning has occurred to identify rules (i.e., bibid range, LOC call number range, subject classification, controlled vocabulary value, etc.) based on work in the CuLLR system at Cornell. Inclusion of resources from other institutions is supported on a one resource at a time by copying the URI from other institutions catalog search.
Incomplete: Ability to specify semantic tags and selection rules are not implemented. Integration into the catalog with search facets is not implemented. Batch processing tools are not implemented. Cross-site selection of multiple items from a single search implementation is dependent on Use Case 6.1.
B. Engineering librarians build virtual reference shelf: In moving from a physical engineering library to a virtual library the engineering librarians decide to replicate online the popular shelf of key engineering reference handbooks that used to in the physical engineering library. In collaboration with the team providing their local discovery and access system, they decide on a tag that will be used to create an "Engineering Handbooks" facet. Tags are internally represented as URIs though the UI will likely show a human readable string. As the different librarians are specialists in different subject areas they decide to work together to tag items in their respective areas. One librarian creates the tag. They each then tag items from the catalog. These tags are then used in the local discovery and access system to populate the "Engineering Handbooks" facet.
Completed: The open annotation gem provides the infrastructure for semantic tags for controlled vocabularies where semantic tags are represented as URIs.
Incomplete: Authentication and access controls, roles, and groups are not implemented, which is required for collaborative building of curated library collections. Questioning Authority gem will likely be used for the encoding of controlled vocabularies. There isn't a user interface for setting up questioning authority.
