Acceso a Información Providing Bibliographic Access in Spanish:  Acceso a Información Providing Bibliographic Access in Spanish Westchester Library System New York June 25, 2006 Who We Are:  Who We Are The Westchester Library System (WLS) is a state-chartered, cooperative library system serving all 38 Westchester County member public libraries and the County’s citizens. As one of the 23 public library systems serving New York State's public libraries, the Westchester Library System was established in 1958. The mission of the Westchester Library System is to enhance and improve the County's libraries, and to ensure that all residents have excellent library service regardless of their location. Background Story:  Background Story Local cataloging policy for many years was to delete Spanish subject headings from the bib records ! Spanish-speaking users in several library communities were underserved by the WLS catalog. Spanish collections were limited to being browsed, not subject-searched. Growing Numbers:  Growing Numbers The 2000 Census reported: Over 28 million Spanish speakers in the U.S. with close to 4.5 million living in the Northeast 15.6% of Westchester County’s population are persons of Hispanic or Latino origin, with identifiable concentrations in certain municipalities 28.4% of Westchester County’s population older than 5 yrs of age speaks a language other than English at home Reaching a Community:  Reaching a Community The ALA RASD Committee on Library Services to the Spanish Speaking has published guidelines to reach this important minority community, including standard collection and selection criteria for library materials, as well as bibliographic access “Bibliographic access to the library's collection should include Spanish-language subject headings in the public catalog when appropriate for the population served.” http://www.ala.org/ala/rusa/rusaprotools/referenceguide/guidelineslibrary.htm The Project:  The Acceso a Información project is: Funded by a grant awarded through the New York State LSTA (Library Services and Technology Act) (2005-2007) Designed to create new tools for technical services staff at WLS and to be shared with other library systems in providing comprehensive subject access to Spanish language materials for the growing number of Spanish-speaking users in their respective service areas The Project Getting Started :  Getting Started Verifying Spanish subject headings already in the catalog Assigning Spanish SHs from Bilindex, LEMB, or an authorized public library catalog (e.g. San Francisco Public Library) Creating original WLS local Spanish SHs in the absence of an authorized heading Performing Spanish SH authority work In June 2005, WLS contracted with a Spanish Cataloging Librarian to provide subject analysis services to include: The Process (part 1):  The Process (part 1) The most efficient workflow evolved as follows: Step 1 – Enhance the Bibliographic record Identify a recently added Spanish catalog item Verify, assign, or create Spanish SHs for that particular item Apply those Spanish SHs to all of the bib records that require it Following a Spanish SH trail through the WLS catalog! The Process (part 2):  The Process (part 2) Step 2 – Enhance the Authority record Establish a system-generated subject authority record for each heading added to the bib record b. Edit the SAR to include cross-references and the English language equivalent in a 7XX tag (http://www.loc.gov/marc/authority/ecadlink.html) Add 670 notes to identify the source of the SPSH, as needed EXAMPLE The Sources :  The Sources Example 1: LEMB, Bilindex, WLS Example 2: SFPL A variety of authoritative sources of SPSH were used in this project: Bilindex General 2005 (Floricanto Press) Library of Congress online catalog (for English language equivalency) OCLC WorldCat (for Bilindex, LEMB) San Francisco Public Library OPAC The Outcome:  The Outcome Our goal within the scope and funding of this project was to develop tools that would facilitate user access to our member libraries’ Spanish language collections and assist catalogers with Spanish subject analysis. Since June 2005 we have been able to enhance just over 11,760 bibliographic records for Spanish subject access. Approximately 6,500 subject authority MARC records have been created in our local Spanish subject authority file.
