Association for Recorded Sound Collections (ARSC) 2013 Pre-Conference Workshop “Discovery Access Methods for Sound Recording Collections.” Kansas City, MO. May 15, 2013. Recorded sound professionals know inherently that audio content is different from printed textual material. However, library discovery systems are regularly developed with only books and articles in mind. How, then, can we best serve users seeking recorded sound? In this session, we begin from the ground up, first solidifying our understanding of which attributes are important for discovering recorded sound. Then, with the help of the Music Discovery Requirements and FRBR principles, we will delve into individual specific attributes, exploring how we can create systems that will serve users’ sound recording discovery needs. We will look at specific successful examples, focusing on legacy MARC/AACR2/RDA data, while gaining insight from non-MARC and even non-library successes.
