OCLC Research

Some new resources on the OCLC ResearchWorks page. Seen on Lorcan Dempsey's weblog
  • XSLTproc
    OCLC Research's XSLTProc is a tool for managing and using arbitrary XSLT stylesheets.
  • SchemaTrans crosswalk repository and schema transformation.
    Crosswalks in the SchemaTrans repository are initially modeled using METS, a standard for encoding metadata about objects in digital libraries. The resulting records are deposited into an OAI repository that can be searched by human or machine using the SRW/U protocol. SchemaTrans translates XML documents from the specified source to the target by matching the dependencies in the documents against the records in the METS database.
  • NACO Normalization service.
    OCLC Research's NACO Normalization Service enables systems to convert names and other text strings to a format more conducive to machine comparison and sorting.
